In the world of Internet browsing, your attention is the prize.
And the more you work online, the higher the price.
Designed for easy surfing more than 30 years ago, browsers now operate in a totally different environment. Offices migrate to virtuality, data traffic becomes excessive, desktop tools transform into purely online apps…
Your usual browsing toolbox is unfit for online work. Ad-centric browsers trigger fatigue and distraction. They manipulate your online habits in order to keep your focus on redundant pages and search results.
Unlike mainstream browsers that are getting richer by selling ads, we earn by subscriptions only so we don’t need ad revenues. This enables us to advance a totally new user experience, where only productivity matters. Our free basic plan has enough to power up your online work. Switch to Pro for Superhuman mode.
We turned to neuroscientists to understand how app interfaces affect the human brain. Did you know it’s not only the computer’s memory that stalls when too many tabs are open, but also your task-related neural centers?
Fast, secure, and focus-honed online work and browsing is just a start. Chromium-based Sidekick is also a handy switchboard for your most-used apps and an in-built search engine for all your docs, messages, and files. It supports multiple accounts and separate workspaces for different projects or clients.
Sidekick’s founder and CEO is Dmitry Pushkarev, a PhD from Stanford, a skilled expert in biotech and cloud computing. He previously co-founded Moleculo Inc., a genome-decoding tech that was acquired by Illumina, and ClusterK, a spare computing capacity automation software acquired by Amazon. Prior to launching Sidekick, Dmitry held executive positions at Amazon.
