BadWolf

Minimalist and privacy-oriented WebKitGTK+ browser.

The name is a reference to BBC’s Doctor Who Tv serie, I took it simply because I wanted to have a specie in the name, like some other web browsers do, but doesn’t go into the “gentle” zone.

Differencies

Comparing from other small WebKit browsers for unixes found in the wild:

  • Independent of environment, should just work if GTK and WebKitGTK does
  • Storing data should be:
    • explicit and optionnal (ie. Applying preferences doesn't imply Saving to disk)
    • not queryabe by WebKit (so the web can't use it)
    • done in a standard format (like XBEL for bookmarks)
  • Static UI, no element should be added at runtime, this is to avoid potential tracking via viewport changes
  • Small codebase, right now we are under 1 500 lines total
  • Does not use modal editing (from vi) as that was designed for editing, not browsing
  • UTF-8 encoding by default

Translations

You need to have gettext installed. If you want a GUI, poedit exists and Weblate is a good web platform that I might consider hosting at some point.

  • Syncing POT file with the source code: make po/messages.pot
  • Syncing PO file with the POT file: make po/de.po
  • Initialising a new PO file (example for German, de_DE): msginit -l de_DE -i po/messages.pot -o po/de.po

Manual Installation

Dependencies are:

  • C11 Compiler (such as clang or gcc)
  • WebKitGTK, only the latest stable is supported
  • POSIX make with extension for shell in variables (works with GNU, {Net,Free,Open}BSD)
  • A pkg-config implementation (pkgconf is recommended)
  • (optionnal) gettext implementation (such as GNU Gettext)

Compilation is done with make CC=${CC:-cc}, install with make install. An example AppArmor profile is provided at usr.bin.badwolf, please do runtime checks before deploying.

Notes

Most of the privacy/security stuff will be done with patches against WebKit as quite a lot isn’t into WebKitSettings and with generic WebKit extensions that should be resuseable.
