Mumbai: Veera, the ‘Made in India’ mobile-only internet browser, launches today to revolutionize the mobile internet experience for Bharat.
Veera is envisioned as a challenger browser for India by Arjun Ghose (previously an investor with VC firm Falcon Edge / Alpha Wave and McKinsey), Rahul Pagdipati (Chairman of the Board Zebpay & Board Member at Brave browser), Aditya Julka (serial entrepreneur Founder of Paddle8, entrepreneur-in-residence at Harvard Business School) and Kanu Gupta (founding leadership of Goldman Sachs in India, serial investor).
Veera is funded by a slew of reputed blue-chip investors, including Ayon Capital, COG Network, 6th Man Ventures, Folius Ventures and iSeed Ventures, as well as marquee angels such as Aalap Mahadevia (Briarwood Capital), Kabir Narang (B-Capital), Nikhil Mohta (Carlyle, ICICI Ventures), Kevin Hu (Brevam Howard), Saneel Srini (Moralis Capital), Ashwin Ramachandran, Viram Shah (Vested), and Dr. Devaiah Pagidipati (Freedom health, Physician Partners, Anion Health).
In a digital age where safety and speed are paramount, Veera stands as a testament to homegrown innovation that not only addresses the core needs of crash-free browsing speed and security but also seeks to fuel the curiosity of the next generation.
Arjun Ghose, Founder of Veera, said, Our mission was to craft a faster, safer, and private browsing sanctuary for Indian internet users. We embarked on this journey to build an internet experience that resonates with India’s uniqueness. With the average user spending approximately 7.3 hours per day online Veera’s impact as the window to the internet for a billion Indians is undeniably significant. But, let me assure you this is just the beginning; there are a whole bunch of features in the pipeline that we are super excited about and will launch shortly.”
Setting new benchmarks, Veera boasts blazing fast speeds, clocking in 40.8 runs/minute on Speedometer – a feat that places it at the peak of browser peers. Veera also boasts of an integrated live tracker, showcasing the real-time count of thwarted ads and trackers alongside a tangible representation of data saved.
While blocking trackers is a feature a few select browsers already provide globally, Veera goes a step further by blocking third-party trackers, ads, autoplay videos and more by default.
Currently accessible exclusively on Android devices and will be available on iOS and Windows in the near future.
