Project Canineum - Getting started

Step 0: Your PC should be running a 64 bit version of Windows.
Step 1: Download Canineum.zip.
Step 2: Open the ZIP file and move the folder inside wherever you want it to be.
Step 3: The browser and all its files are inside this folder, feel free to create a desktop shortcut for it for easier use.
Note1: This is a free browser, not selling your data or showing you extra ads, for that reason it only supports freely available audio and video codecs.
Tip1: This will get better as patents expire overtime.
Adblockers: Adblockers or other extensions are not supported yet, but you can use AdGuard DNS to block ads in all browsers on your PC.

Tips and Tricks

Task Explanation
Load URL Put your URL in the address bar
Smart Search Put anything else in the address bar to search it, you can even use Search Syntax or Bangs
Open files Put "file:///file address" in the address bar or drag your file into the browser window (works best with PDFs, images and txt files)
Pins and Unpins Use commands "/pin" and "/unpin" (when pinned Canineum will always be the top window)
Fullscreen Use the fullscreen commands "/fullscreen" and "/unfullscreen"
Languages Websites are loaded based on keyboard language, used when the browser is launched (if they support this feature and the language)
Right click This menu can be used for printing and inspecting source code, it also has shortcuts to some of the buttons next to the address bar
