No frills web browsing

A new direction in web browsing


While other web browsers are becoming more complex, Cardinal goes the opposite direction: simplicity. Cardinal has only the essentials:

• Tabbed browsing
• Per-tab history
• URL sharing
• History
• Bookmarks
• Open bookmark groups in tabs
• Downloads

Other browsers can consume vast amounts of memory and CPU when you have more than one or two tabs loaded. This can bring your machine to a crawl, or force you to quit and re-launch your browser. Cardinal is optimized to drastically lower these requirements —by up to 90% — freeing up system resources for other applications.


Cardinal is currently in open beta, and will be adding many features such as popup blocking, private browsing, and enabling & disabling Flash on a per-tab basis in upcoming releases.

Current Release: 1.0 Beta 2

Cardinal is the face of CardinalKit, a embedded web browser framework.

CardinalKit uses WebKit as the rendering engine, and has all the major features that users expect from a web browser experience. It was designed to allow faster creation of macOS applications that feature a built-in web browser and tight integration between web browser and other features of the application.

Minder Softworks has a pipeline of applications that will feature CardinalKit as a core component.
