About this app

Ceno (Censorship.No!) is a decentralized mobile web browser. It uses peer-to-peer technology to deliver websites to your phone and caches popular content with cooperating peers. Ceno can be used to bypass Internet censorship and help others retrieve blocked pages.

Say NO to censorship! Install Ceno Browser today and be prepared for the next time you get 🔌 unplugged.

🚫🌴 Offline-first.
Ceno is designed with internet shutdown scenarios in mind. Websites are shared by a global network of peers, and stored in a distributed cache for availability when traditional networks are blocked or go down.

🔓👀 Unlock the web.
Access any website. Frequently requested content is cached on the network and cannot be forcibly removed.

💲🌐 Reduce Data Costs.
By routing user traffic through peer-to-peer networks, Ceno Browser incurs less data costs while still providing users with circumvention capability.

📖👐 Free and open source.
Ceno Browser is powered by Ouinet, an open source library enabling third party developers to incorporate the Ceno network into their apps for peer-to-peer connectivity.

Important: Ceno has two modes of operation - public and personal. You can easily toggle between them. Public mode offers the best connectivity but the least privacy - websites that you visit or share are recorded in a publicly accessible registry (BitTorrent). Private mode eliminates this record but may be slower and less efficient at retrieving content. See the User Manual for more details on Ceno usage.

Brilliant idea that sometimes just breaks down. I think its an incompatibility with my device hardware so its hard for me to be too critical. Firefox, tor, and mull all run into the same problems. Unfortunately this means it can't be a daily browser for me, but I highly encourage everyone to give it a try. It may legitimately help make the internet a better and more accessible place by making shared data available to all in poor connectivity zones such as rural Appalachia

extremely important program. and not only for totalitarian countries, I think people of the free world should also use it more often to create a cache of pages. loads faster than other browsers. If saving pages in mhtml and pdf is added, I will make it the main browser.

Failed to install uBlock origin. No any collection with add-ons is provided by default. This is definitely not fine. I'm still using Firefox with extensions and no want to step down with Ceno without extensions.
