I'm currently using uBlock, Disconnect, Privacy Badger and NoScript. Talk about overkill!

Wouldn't it be nice we could just implement these features into a browser or at least combine the features into a more sane single stable plug-in?

Yes! Put the features into abrowser as one addon.

Given the direction in which Mozilla is heading, I would really like to see the EFF develop their own browser.

the gnu project are already doing this by forking Firefox as icecat(aka gnuzilla)

I understand the sentiment Chris, but I actually like the way the plug-in architecture support the old school UNIX philosophy; many small tools which each do one thing, and do it well. A swiss-army-knife plug-in that tries to do everything is not necessarily an improvement, and building in lots of bells and whistles has lead to FireFox becoming bloated, which is ironic considering it began as a solution to the bloat of the SeaMonkey suite. Not that privacy/ security functions are bells and whistles, I agree they are important. But for example I'd like to see LibreJS functions included by default in any free code browser worth of the name, but until the project is more mature (both the client-side software and the server-side compliance), it's better to keep it as a discreet plug-in which can be installed/ removed and enabled/ disabled separately from other functions.

That said, I would like to see a 100% libre, cross-platform browser (on as many desktop and mobile platforms as possible), under a unified branding, since Firefox no longer really qualifies (EME, TokBox Hello etc etc). Cross-platform apps don't solve the problem of non-free OS, but they do make the transition to a free OS easier, because at least part of the UI will be familiar. The browser is a key app to make cross-platform, because people spend so much of their time using it.

One possible candidate is Dooble, has anyone else checked that out? I must admit I'm a little dubious of projects still hosted on SourceForge, after all the adware and non-free bundling scandals, but Dooble seems legit and released a new version recently:

I tried a few, now I have these:
html5 video everywhere
Noscript for some rare js exceptions
Request Policy for redirections
Random agent spoofer for html5 and making tracking harder
self-destructing cookies
ublock origin

And only youtube-dl since the others rely on some activated js at some point.

So this one is similar to donottrack and disconnect?
But with Noscript and RequestPolicy, isn't that enough?
Maybe it's geared towards people who have js on (the "normal" people, I am tempted to say).

I love the idea of this being a built-in feature though.
