What’s New

Version 1.14.1

Introducing Call Arc:
Arc Search now has voice-activated search, triggered by holding your phone to your ear and saying your query — just like you’re making a phone call. Upon using Call Arc, you'll instantly hear your search results, accompanied by an animated smiley face! You can also click "Read More" to access full Browse for Me results for each query.

Auto-Open Keyboard Fixes:
Following member feedback, we've now ensured that the auto-open keyboard preference will be respected regardless of whether you have any tabs open. Also, if you prefer not to have the keyboard auto-open, it will no longer appear upon force-quitting and relaunching the app, or when reactivating the app with no open tabs. You can toggle the keyboard's auto-open option by tapping on the tab switcher in the bottom left corner, then tapping on the gear icon in the bottom right corner to open App Settings.

After all these years, I have finally changed the default browser!

So over the years, I have tried various browsers, I have always stuck with Safari, simply because I’m an Apple user, and it’s always been so intuitive to work with the iPhone. About two months ago, I started seeing some marketing on TikTok for Arc, and since, I have not looked back. Currently my default browser on my Mac mini, as well as my iPhone 15, I do wish there was a browser for the iPad, but I’m sure that’s coming soon! There are constant updates, and the team does a really good job at listening to feedback of the community and then making videos and posts in regards to the feedback and updates. Lastly, the main reason that I love it so much, simply the browse for me feature. Rather than have to look through multiple different websites, browse for me, simply create a webpage specifically for me based upon, what I typed in. It uses various websites to cite its sources and then builds out a simple webpage for me to view and potentially share. This alone makes it the best browser on any device! Highly recommend you download it, just try it for a week, you will be surprised!

So much promise

I WANT to love this app (and the MacOS version as well). It has great features, seems like an awesome company full of talented people. UI is great. The big things at this point that are holding me back from 5 stars and switching from safari to Arc is: 1) the integration with the Apple ecosystem. It would be so much more helpful if the browser tapped into the api to allow users to fill in passwords and other info from the Apple stored info (kinda like Edge does). It’s a kind of a hassle having to either save passwords and verification codes in two places or switch back and forth from Passwords settings to copy and paste. This means using two browsers for different things or starting my searches and browsing on Arc and then if I do make a purchase having switch back over to safari - very inconvenient when the whole point of technology is convenience. 2) no (native) iPad version. Need to be able to consistently browse from one device to another. This needs to be somewhat seamless like in safari. Having to use a second browser on iPad is just counter productive.

Overall it’s a pleasure to use Arc on my Mac and iPhone and I have gotten to use a few features that work amazing and I didn’t even know I needed. Can’t wait to see how this product matures and hope that it can eventually fill the gaps and I can switch over to this as my default across devices.

The best browser

This is hands down the best browsing experience I’ve had on mobile. It’s exactly what I wanted but none of the alternatives had it right.

I search for so many things everyday and in lots of the cases what I’m looking for is a quick summary of what’s out there probably on the first 2 pages of google. This is not something you get from a pure LLM (chatgpt) and not from a simple browser with search. That’s exactly what Arc got right.

Also very often when looking at a page I need a quick summary, and you get that with a simple pinch on Arc.

The design is perfect. Super clean and fast.
I love it. It saves me so much time.

Feature request

A total dark mode. Let me explain:
Unfortunately none of the browsers currently get this quite right. Current best is maybe Firefox or Brave, but those two have other issues.
First you need to realize that reader mode, and smart invert are not solutions.

A huge part of browser experience is looking at the page as is and also following links to other pages. Reader modes fails the former and smart invert fails during page switching and constantly flash bangs the user, it also messes up with top or bottom of screen and is in general inconvenient.

What I want from a dark mode feature is to completely limit the brightness of pixels on screen on all pages, all the time. Basically there should never be a large surface area on screen that is too bright. Never. Not even for a millisecond during page switch.
