We are proud to announce that the Uhuru V1.4 Beta is now live and we are ready to receive everyone’s feedback. You can try it out at https://beta.uhuru.me/
Uhuru contains multiple productivity tools to take back your data ownership from the tech giants.
It contains social features, a chat application, a video-chat application, an entirely browser-based open-source file editor and management system and so much more to come.
It also contains Glass, a special browser using browser isolation technology. We are convinced this is the browsing system of the future. Those interested in learning more about browser isolation can follow the link.
We are currently still in beta-phase and are working towards a stable product with more features. Any feedback is super welcome and appreciated. We are making this tool for everyone to use, and we can’t do it without the community’s feedback.
Anyone willing to help us out can report issues on our github page. A handy template is already created for reporting feedback or issues.
