Compare with Other Browsers

We often get the question, “But I can already do this in other browsers, why do I need Hermit”.

It’s usually from someone who has just recently seen Hermit, and not had a chance to explore the advanced features that it offers.

To them, we say, hey try it out for yourself, and you’ll discover a whole new way to browse on your phone.
