Sandcat - Penetration Testing Oriented Browser for Pen-Testers

Sandcat Browser brings unique features that are useful for pen-testers and web developers

Sandcat is targeted at penetration testers - people who test websites for security holes - but could also be useful for developers, or anyone else who would like a little more low-level control over their browsing .. This is a capable security testing and developer-oriented browser.

Sandcat Browser is a freeware portable pen-test oriented multi-tabbed web-browser with extensions support developed by the Syhunt team. It is built on top of Chromium, the same engine that powers the Google Chrome browser and uses the LUA language to provide extensions and scripting support.

It has many useful security and developer oriented tools updated to version 4.0 with the fastest scripting language packed with features for pen-testers such as: 
  • Live HTTP Headers — built-in live headers with a dedicated cache per tab and support for preview extensions
  • Sandcat Console — an extensible command line console; Allows you to easily run custom commands and scripts in a loaded page
  • Resources tab — allows you to view the page resources, such as JavaScript files and other web files.
  • Page Menu extensions — allows you to view details about a page and more.
  • Pen-Tester Tools — Sandcat comes with a multitude of pen-test oriented extensions. This includes a Fuzzer, a Script Runner, HTTP & XHR Editors, Request Loader, Request Replay capabilities, Tor support and more.
Features inherited from Chromium include:
  • Multi-Process Architecture — each tab is its own process
  • Developer Tools — in addition to the Chromium Developer Tools, Sandcat comes with a Source Code Editor and its own JavaScript and Lua consoles.
