Arc overview

When we think about browsing the internet, we often ignore the browser itself. Instead, we think about all the things we do online—the articles we read, the emails we send, the shows we watch. The software that enables it all, the browser, is so ubiquitous that it’s ignored.

Despite the ways our internet use has evolved, the browser has remained relatively unchanged. While all of our other software tools are changing for the better—with more collaborative features, flexible interfaces, and powerful functionality—the browser largely still does what it did twenty-five years ago.

What’s more, we blame ourselves for the browser’s shortcomings. When our browser has an overwhelming number of tabs, we call ourselves inefficient; when we get distracted online, we tell ourselves we need more discipline; when we can’t find a url, we think we’re disorganized. Why does the browser get a free pass?

That’s why we’re building a new browser, which we call Arc, because we believe browsers can do so much more to empower us. We’re imagining a browser that can think as quickly as we do, take work off of our plates, and pull our creativity forward. A browser equipped for the way we use the internet in 2024, and foundational for how we hope to use it in the future.

I've been using Arc since early 2023, when it first came out. In fact, on one of the computers I use on a daily basis, it's now the default browser. Now that it's way past the invitation-only stage, the easiest way to get it is to simply download it from the source: https://arc.net/. You can set it to self-update (new releases are posted every Thursday), or you get updates when you want, also from the web source. As a matter of routine, I strongly advice AGAINST downloading anything you see from a pop-up or unsolicited source.

Adding to what scion777-1 provided below, here is the SOURCE ARTICLE "‘Poseidon’ Mac stealer distributed via Google ads" from Malwarebytes Labs: https://www.malwarebytes.com/blog/news/2024/06/poseidon-mac-stealer-distributed-via-google-ads - - I'm posting it because, thanks to the prolific propaganda-sources-that-be, there is no reason to ever believe anything posted on the Internet with out a verifying reference. Seriously! Ars Technica features a good review of the situation under the title "Mac users served info-stealer malware through Google ads". - - AND as with information, ALWAYS get your software from the source provider, the DEVELOPER. Scams are constant and a dime-a-dozen. It's called parasitism.

Malwarebytes Labs analyzed new Mac malware masquerading as the Arc browser while targeting victims via Google ads. ‘Poseidon’ Mac stealer distributed via Google ads On June 24, we observed a new campaign distributing a stealer targeting Mac users via malicious Google ads for the Arc browser. … The threat actor rebranded the new project ‘Poseidon’ and added a few new features such as looting VPN configurations. … Seeing campaigns distributing the new malware payload confirms that the threat is real and actively targeting new victims.

Heavy file, almost double than Opera and Google Chrome(don't use), and triple than Firefox. And with the time it will use a lot memory and CPU.
