An Alternative web browser that turns web pages into digital confetti.

At a time when the web browser struggled against print metaphors like magazine and newspapter to find it’s own identity, The Shredder revealed the “soft” nature of the web. Markup, text, code, images and links are scattered across the screen like an instant Jackson Pollack. The raw material of the web, revealed, torn and tossed onto a heap.

“transforms the Web page’s text, graphics and underlying HTML code into a mangled but dazzling display.”
