Why do we care so much about Sidekick’s speed?
Features to make you working instead of waiting
Sidekick blocks requests to tracking websites and ad networks. It protects your privacy and speeds up page loading by 3x over mainstream browsers.
Sidekick learns your habits and understands which tabs to offload. It also knows which tabs to keep open for you not to lose your unsaved work.
Sidekick combines similar pages and apps (like Google Docs) so it reduces your memory consumption up to 80%. You can run more web or desktop apps without affecting performance.
CPU usage monitoring
Sidekick will alert when tabs have an unusually high CPU usage and will propose to close them.
Sidekick keeps only the trackers that enable you to get to your work faster and blocks everything else.
One browser instead of multiple mini ones
Each desktop app is a mini-browser. Working in web apps keeps the memory footprint low, freeing up space for other so much needed operations.
