Arc Browser Review

Arc Browser is an upgraded internet browser that offers a more custom way to use the web, with bolt-ons and extensions that can go beyond many Google Chrome offerings.

Managing Tabs in Arc Browser

What is Arc Browser?

Arc Browser is essentially an internet browser with a little bit more juice. Like Google Chrome, Arc Browser is designed to allow you to browse the web with a bit more customisation and a few productivity tricks.

With Chrome you can search for things, and save pages and all that jazz, however, Arc wants to be more like an operating system, where you can use different tools to fulfil a range of needs, rather than just a browser to search URLs and install plugins.

With Arc, you can organise to your heart's content. This browser doesn't have the traditional row of open tabs along the top. Arc uses a sidebar instead. Within this sidebar, you can organise everything you could possibly think of using different ‘tabs’.

It’s colourful, it’s different, and it takes a lot of getting used to. Arc Browser actually is built an run using Chromium engine.

Arc Browser Features

What's inside Arc Browser for managing your browser:

  • A dedicated space for a category of tabs, folders and more.
  • Everything you have looked at today in one place.
  • Pinned websites or applications will always stay open.
  • Favourite saved tabs in one place.
  • Boost gallery for building and extending your Arc experience.
  • A place to create visual notes and express ideas.
  • Notes in rich or plain text format.

Extended features include:

  • The command bar allows you to open up a search wherever you are to locate whatever you're looking for.
  • Tons of keyboard shortcuts you can learn to make your time using Arc quicker and smoother.
  • Boosts are like extensions you can create yourself, from scratch. You may want to use a boost to enhance a webpage you are looking at.

When will Arc Browser Launch?

Arc Browser is set to launch in mid-2023 to the public and bypass the waitlist.

Is Arc Browser Worth It?

Arc Browser seems to have a lot of elements that will definitely take a lot of getting used to. It is a dream for those who want to fully customise their experience browsing, who want a full-screen way to use the web and manage their web experience, without privacy issues.

The team at The Browser Company are developing Arc Browser to be a personalised way to experience the internet. If you are someone who likes to keep it simple, maybe stick with Google Chrome, but if not, Arc Browser could be a neat bet.


Arc Browser has a sidebar function where you can store and organise everything you want at hand, without having to keep tons of tabs open.


Arc Browser offers a user-friendly experience, you can create a workspace that works for your individual needs, and the software is an enjoyable experience.

Arc Boosts

You can create an experience that works specifically to suit your needs with Arc Browser, this includes 'Spaces', a place for categories, tabs and organisation.

How is Arc Browser Different to Chrome?

Although Arc runs on the same engine as Chrome and you can still use some of Chrome's capabilities, this browser is completely different.

  • First of all, it looks totally different, in fact, it looks like no other…
  • Arc uses a sidebar, not a row of tabs along the top of the screen.
  • Arc does not track the websites you use.
  • It will not sell your data to third parties.
  • It allows you to customise what you see using Arc Boosts
  • Finally, it cannot see what you're searching for.

One of the killer features of Arc Browser for many is Boosts gallery allowing you to plug and play with the look of apps and tools you already use like Gmail, Google Calendar and more.
