Cocoon has expanded its privacy-enhancement browsing tools to iPhones and iPads today with a new iOS browser called GetCocoon. The Safari alternative, which like the iOS default browser is based on WebKit, creates a buffer around your browsing habits.

GetCocoon uses Cocoon’s privacy tech from its desktop browser plug-in to anonymize your browsing. In GetCocoon, as with Cocoon’s add-ons, your site requests are run through Cocoon’s secure servers, stripped of your identifying details.

The browser supports desktop Cocoon features such as anonymous e-mail address creation, history syncing through your Cocoon account, and single-PIN sign-on. It also lets you block iAds, although they are on by default.
