Zambia’s Mathews Chishinji has developed a web browser called ‘Dall Dall web browser’ in a bid to compete with Google Chrome and others

21-year-old Zambian programmer and software developer, Mathews Chishinji has developed a web browser called the ‘Dall Dall Web’ browser; making him the first Zambian in history to do so.

Mathews Chishinji is a 21-year-old Zambian programmer and software developer currently based in Zambia. He became known in early 2021 after he created a programing language that allows Africans to write computer languages in native African languages. This year, the 21-year-old Zambian has developed a web browser that allows internet users to search the web and browse. Dall Dall web browser is simple, fast, secure, and easy to use, and it is available for download.

Speaking to The African Dream, Mathews Chishinji said the motive behind the creation of the Dall Dall web browser is ”to push the competition of African web technologies in line with others like Chrome, Firefox and Opera Mini.” The 21-year-old is hoping to see more competition in the tech industry with African tech geniuses making the most of it. According to him, Dall Dall web browser will be open source as well, for the interest of computer science students and software engineers to contribute to its future developments.

According to StatCounter GlobalStats, hundreds of millions of Africans are using Google Chrome browser, Safari, Firefox, Opera, and others. This has created a huge market penetration for these tech giants making billions from the continent. Africa is the second-largest continent, after Asia, in size and population; with over 40% internet penetration rate.

Chrome 62.26%

Firefox 10.82%

Safari 10.32%

Opera 9.04%

Samsung Internet 3.65%

Edge 1.73%

In June 2019, more people in Africa accessed the internet than did in Latin America, North America, or the Middle East. There were 525 million internet users in Africa, 447 million in Latin America and the Caribbean, 328 million in North America, and 174 million in the Middle East.

With over 3 billion internet users globally, Mathews Chishinji is working hard to make Zambia’s first web browser a dream come true and be among the world’s top web browsers like the Google Chrome browser. On that backdrop, he added special marquee code to his web browser which allows users of the browser to get live notifications from Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, LinkedIn, and other social media platforms; making it the first of its kind. This will give users a live Internet interaction kind of feeling, more like an Artificial Intelligence kind of feeling.

The 21-year-old told The African Dream that the Dall Dall web browser is still in its development process, but could be used for anything related to a web search. He added that Africans should promote technologies owned by Africans and ”keep our history and search data in our very own African databases.” He said all source code files of the browser will be put on Github for ”easy access to code contributions for those interested in everything that matters.”

As of the government and Africans in Africa? It’s up to them to stand up and emancipate themselves from technological slavery. People like me are not interested really in government funding but are rather interested in law documents that will support my African works.

I think that one way they can make it one of the biggest is by supporting projects like these in getting works verified from the appropriate authorities as the law is one of the most important things that shape the structure of any government.

Americans and Europeans including the Chinese, have taken interest in almost everything on this earth and have applied the law. That is what we also want taking interest in everything and applying the law.
