Privacy browser can have custom search URL. It may not seem like a big deal if you use popular search engines like ddg, qwantz etc. But if you use custom searx instances with your personal preferences it can be a life saver.

Privacy Browser can also pin SSL certificate of websites. So if next time you visit the website, and the ceritificate is not what you pinned, you will be alarted. This can be useful for Man in the Middile Attack and someone pretending to be that website with some other certificate.

There's also a feature of pinning website's IP address. Again in case it changes, you'll be alarted.
