Arc browser

Launched in 2022 by the Browser Company, a company founded by former Facebook employees Josh Miller and Hursh Agrawal, Arc Browser is a Chromium-based web browser that aims to change how a traditional browser works. 
Since it is based on Google's open-source code, users can import all their existing bookmarks, extensions, login information, and more, from other browsers. But that's just a basic understanding of it. 
It is not until you take a look at its features, that you realize just how interesting it is.

Arc browser features
Arc Browser has a wholly different UI compared to its peers. 
It features a vertical tab bar that allows users to see a large number of tabs comfortably. 
It transforms your bookmarks and tabs and brings them into an app launcher-like UI. 
There is also an option to create Spaces for various categories or tasks where you can store related tabs. You can also have different accounts, 6 pinned pages, and more in each Space. 
Arc browser also allows you to save up to 8 tabs as favorites.

The Arc Browser allows you to view multiple tabs at once in a split-screen which can increase productivity, and come in handy in situations where you need to access the contents of two different web pages simultaneously. 
Interestingly, it comes with built-in tools like whiteboard and notes, something which you can only access with extensions on traditional Chromium-based browsers.

With a new feature called Boost, you can even change the way websites look. 
You can change elements from websites such as layout, background, colour, font, and brightness of web pages. you can even remove items using the Zap tool. It is basically ?editing the internet?, according to the Browser Company.

If you're used to opening a plethora of tabs at once, closing them becomes a hassle. 
Arc Browser does this work for you as it automatically closes tabs every 12 hours. 
You can choose to save tabs by pinning them. 
It also features a built-in command bar through which you can execute multiple commands such as toggling extensions, opening/closing tabs, and more by just pressing the command key along with the designated number key.

Due to its vastly different UI from other Chromium-based browsers, Arc Browser requires a bit of learning, but it can become an organizer's dream once you get accustomed to it.

### Understanding the Cybervolunteer Program

Launched under the aegis of the Indian Cyber Crime Coordination Centre (I4C), MHA, the Cybervolunteer program is a pioneering step aimed to increase citizen participation in cybercrime awareness, detection, and prevention. Joining the program, as a Cybervolunteer, one can contribute by reporting illegal/unlawful content encountered on the internet.

### Who can participate?
