Spring v0.1.0: The Nostr Browser

“This is the first public Android release, we’re submitting to the Play Store, but an APK is ready for you to try – click here to download.””We believe this category of a Nostr-specific browser is a very powerful tool for all the nostriches and bitcoiners. It takes the experience of using Nostr micro-apps to the next level, and should help accelerate the adoption of non-social Nostr use cases.””If you hesitate to paste your nsec into the app, we totally get it – just use your (or someone else’s) npub to log in and look around. However, if you do add your real keys – those are handled by a separate library, stored in an encrypted form and protected by the Android keystore, inaccessible to any JS code, immune to XSS or app-level bugs.””IMPORTANT: nostr apps running inside the browser tabs can sign events and decrypt private messages without a confirmation screen and your explicit permission – do not use apps you don’t trust until we implement proper app permission management.”
