FYI: If you want to try out Ghostery Dawn, the new browser from Ghostery, there is an AUR package for it now. The browser is still in Beta, but it is already close to being officially released.

Update: The work on the Cliqz Browser has now stopped (the last commit remains 30th of July), but the positive news is that in the meantime Ghostery started working on a new browser to replace it. It is in Beta phase but already usable (regular release + nightly builds). Eventually all Cliqz Browser users will be recommended to migrate to the new browser from Ghostery.

If you are interested, the development is public. You can follow it on

Hi, sorry I did not see the comments, so I could not answer faster. For the moment, there is still active development (last release was merging with Firefox 78.0.2). You can follow the changes on This was not the "farewell" release, but a regular merge update.

I did not have the time to update aur/cliqz, but for the aur/cliqz-bin package, which I'm using myself now, I bumped it, so it is sync with the official Debian releases. Should the development stop, it will be clearly communicated, but currently the browser is still getting security patches.

Hi @milouse,

Thank YOU for letting me know.

Yes, I've moved away from Cliqz already as if a project where updates are essential is dead, no point continuing using it. However, when I spotted the update I just wanted to make sure.

Just as well Firefox has improved massively since the last few versions. Still sad for Cliqz, though; it was a good one.

Keep up the good work.

Hi @Gio

I must admit I didn't make the update myself, since like you said Cliqz adventure has ended. PhCl, which worked at Cliqz done it by himself. I know from them that they wanted to push some « farewell » to their browser, to inform their user-base that the browser is discontinuated and that they should migrate to another browser. I didn't test it myself (since I already move back to firefox), but I think this new release will just do that: at first launch offer end-user to migrate to another browser.

Thus, no worry, it's not a scam, but a legit new version, however I think it's one of the last to be published I you should migrate to another browser ASAP.

Have a good day.

Hi. I was surprised yesterday when I received an update of this. Isn't it dead? According to

"Dear Cliqz friends,

on April 29, 2020 we’ve announced with a heavy heart the Cliqz story is over. It is a terrible decision, but it is the only one possible. There is no future for Cliqz as it is today."

Thank YOU.

Yes I know that. This is my ignorance of the subject ;) I thought that this binary is ready to be installed. Now I have everything ready. I compiled and Cliqz works - Great work! Thanks for help :).

milouse commented on 2020-04-07 16:57

Mmmmh yes and? I don't see your problem. You must already have a cliqz-bin.tar.gz and a cliqz-bin.tar.gz.1 file in the same directory, that's why your newly downloaded file with wget has been saved as cliqz-bin.tar.gz.2.

What's wrong with it?

Now you should extract the downloaded archive and build the package with makepkg. Have you read the AUR documentation about building a package? And in fact the whole article?

OK, right. That's the same result, but in english. The same is on my phone or other web browsers too (1,35KB):

Hello @niemcu. I don't have such a failure. I think you got a temporarily network error while communicating with

If the error persists, you should better asks on the archlinux forum. In any case, to help anybody understand the error, please prefix your command with LANG=C like this:

LANG=C wget

Thank you very much.
