Zoho Launches Privacy-Focussed Browser ‘Ulaa’ To Take On Google, Microsoft


Zoho Corporation, an Indian software development company, has launched a new privacy-focused browser named Ulaa in a bid to take on established players like Google and Microsoft. Ulaa is designed to offer users greater privacy and security, with features such as built-in ad-blocking, tracker-blocking, and anti-fingerprinting tools to prevent advertisers from tracking user behavior. The browser also offers end-to-end encryption for all web traffic and does not collect user data. Ulaa is built on the open-source Chromium browser platform and is currently available for Windows and macOS, with versions for iOS and Android planned for release in the future.

Zoho, the Indian software development company, has launched a privacy-focused web browser called ‘Ulaa’. The browser is designed to provide users with a secure and private browsing experience while also being fast and easy to use. Ulaa is built on the open-source Chromium browser engine, which powers Google Chrome and other browsers. However, Ulaa differs from other browsers in that it blocks third-party cookies by default and does not track users’ online activities. According to Zoho, Ulaa offers users several features that prioritize privacy, including a built-in ad blocker, tracker blocker, and password manager. The browser also offers a ‘Private Search’ feature that lets users search the web without being tracked or monitored by advertisers. Additionally, Ulaa comes with a unique feature called ‘Site Inspector,’ which shows users what websites are doing in the background and whether they are collecting user data or not. Zoho has been vocal about its commitment to user privacy and security, and Ulaa is a part of that initiative. The company’s founder and CEO, Sridhar Vembu, has been critical of tech giants like Google and Facebook for their data collection practices and has advocated for stronger data privacy laws. With Ulaa, Zoho aims to provide a privacy-focused alternative to Google Chrome and other browsers, especially for users who are concerned about their online privacy.
