Free software introduction: Tangram

Tangram is a web browser that is not a browser. A regular web browser is about browsing the web - jumping from page to page. Tangram is more about applications that run on the web. It provides a persistent location for your common web apps like Mastadon, email webclient, forums, social media etc. Here are some of the features:

  • Each tab represent a web app (see the screenshot)

  • Tabs are persistent (they are not opened and closed like regular browser tabs)

  • You can click and browse on each tab. But clicking the home button always bring you back to the configured home page (say, forum home page)

  • Each tab is isolated and self contained. There is no data sharing and the apps are unaware of each other

  • You can have multiple tabs to same site, each logged in with a separate user (like if you have multiple mail accounts)

  • Bring different web apps together on a single app. Some include:

    • Chat apps
    • Email webclients
    • Forums
    • Social media
    • Video/Music/streaming sites
    • Code hosting sites, etc

@telegram_3288122:tchncs.deMuzirian (Telegram)is it like rambox?21:32:10
@telegram_3288122:tchncs.deMuzirian (Telegram)* is it like rambox?21:32:14
@gokuldas:matrix.orggoku12 Muzirian (Telegram): I am not familiar with rambox. They look similar, except Tangram is free software (GPL3), while rambox seems to be proprietary. Tangram also seems to be simple 21:35:47

Hmm. it looks like dual licensed. I tried it. They look similar. However, it seems that apps can be added in Tangram, simply by opening and logging in. Whereas in rambox, they seem to be plugins. Dunno for sure though

Is it like Firefox with container tabs?
03:45:40
@Puttaalu:matrix.orgPuttaaluHave you used it ?03:45:48
@gokuldas:matrix.orggoku12It's not like container tabs. Yes, I do use it03:54:59
@gokuldas:matrix.orggoku12

Puttaalu: Sorry, I couldn't add more details yesterday. Tangram tabs are more about treating web services like desktop apps than about isolating tracking. They differ in 2 key aspects:

  1. Tangram tabs are persistent (they cannot be closed, but have to be deleted). Each Tangram tab also has its own home page - the service for which it was configured. Home button always takes you to it.
  2. Tangram tabs are not deeply isolated like container tabs. It's not possible to track across tabs - because each tab runs in a sandbox. However, it is possible to track browsing across sites within a tab. Container tabs may open a new site in an entirely different container if it is configured to do so.
