Hermit is the only Android browser with Sandboxes: Isolated Containers with Multiple Profiles.

• Use multiple accounts, all active at the same time, in the same browser
• Keep work accounts and personal accounts separate
• Ideal for privacy-invasive social sites
• Use permanent Incognito Mode for sites that offer free content to new users
