Reliance Jio, which already has many apps in its portfolio, has launched a new browser called "JioPages." The browser is being marketed as made-in-India and focuses on privacy. JioPages browser is built on the Chromium Blink engine that provides faster page loads, efficient media streaming, emoji domain support, and encrypted connection. As the web browser is aimed at Indian audiences, it also supports eight Indian languages, including Hindi, Marathi, Tamil, Gujarati, Telugu, Malayalam, Kannada, and Bengali, apart from English.

The JioPages browser is currently available only for Android and available on Google Play Store. However, Reliance Jio is yet to share more details about the browser's availability for iOS devices. It will include a personalized home screen that will allow users to select their default search engines such as Google, Bing, Duck Duck Go, and Yahoo. Users will be able to pin their favorite web pages on the home screen as well. JioPages is also offering the option to select a personalized theme that includes a dark mode "for an eye-friendly viewing experience at night."

The browser will also display personalized content as per the user's preference in terms of language, topic, and region. In addition to this, JioPages will send notifications only on topics according to the user's preferences. As the browser supports regional languages, it will also cater to contents specific to the region. The JioPages is aimed at privacy and will block uncolicited ads and popups to provide seamless browsing.
