Reporting period: 2017-06-01 to 2017-09-30
The main objectives have been: confirming the market interest (competitive analysis, willingness to pay, market segmentation), recruit people to trial the prototype in phase 2 and update the go-to-market strategy and the business plan accordingly.
The main conclusion of the actions and the results is that the project is very attractive and viable, and thus it shall continue, according to the Business plan for Phase 2 and beyond. The main vision of the project, of providing a European browser, with advanced privacy and security features, has been fully confirmed by the actions in Phase 1.
Overall, the main work performed and the accomplishments of Phase 1 have been:
a) On the technical solution, we assessed the efficiency of the anti-fingerprinting solution, based on theoretical analysis, practical tests and also based on relevant patents found. Thus, we fully defined our anti-fingerprinting solution, which is efficient while fully maintaining a good user experience.
b) On the technical side, we also determined how the infrastructure costs will vary, depending on the number of users. This information has then been used for updating the business plan.
d) We finished the assessment of the IPR status and determined that there are no patents we are in danger of breaching in terms of our anti-fingerprinting and data protection solution.
e) We updated our business plan and our go-to-market strategy
