Insomniac and Multilogin are antidetect browsers that ensure user’s privacy and significantly expand browsing capabilities. Both browsers let you perform multiple disassociated tasks by assigning a custom digital fingerprint to each browser tab. This way, you can avoid geo-restrictions and other limitations set up by websites.
Let’s take a look at how the two browsers compare in terms of functionality and accessibility.
Neither browser has a free trial option.
Three pricing plans:
Assistant – $29.99/month
LITE – $89.99/month
Pro – $399/month
Three pricing plans + a custom plan option:
SOLO – €99/month
TEAM – €199/month
SCALE – €399/month
Custom – tailored range
NOTE: paying annually grants 25% off of every plan (prices in euros).
Windows, Linux, MacOS.
As both browsers use Chromium, the system load is similar (just a bit less) to that of Google Chrome. At least 4GB of RAM is required, as having more tabs open will strain weaker systems.
Multilogin also has the Stealthfox Browser option based on Firefox that requires less resources – 2GB of RAM for the 64-bit version.
The defining features of each browser.
Queue statistics collection locally without sending it elsewhere.
Gmail switcher shifts between Gmail accounts with a single click.
Advanced timers change tab colors to reflect the remaining time.
Century view is a vertical tab organization for faster navigation.
Pasties work as a clipboard for each tab to avoid pasting in the wrong tab by accident.
Cookie cleanup with a single click for the current tab, website, or Google cookies.
Browser choice: Mimic Browser (Chromium) and Stealthfox (Firefox).
Extension support for Google Chrome and Firefox.
Web scraping for data extraction.
Selenium and Puppeteer integration.
Permission management for task delegation.
Automatic collection of cookies from URLs with CookieRobot.
Profile sharing on different devices.
Open API for feature automation and scaling.
One of the main features of antidetect browsers is proxy support. Both browsers don’t provide proxies, and users should source their own. Take a look at the Multilogin proxy integration guide.
Both browsers excel at fingerprint generation and customization for multi-accounting, while Multilogin also supports web scraping.
Insomniac emphasizes general-purpose use with a spotlight on online shopping. In contrast, Multilogin positions itself as a one-in-all tool for e-commerce, affiliate marketing, crypto, and digital marketing with the ability to scale and automate business tasks.

Insomniac Browser has a minor presence on the internet. A lack of third-party reviews and showcases could lead to speculation, especially when proudly stating that "Insomniac is the best multi-session browser on the market today and has been for over a decade". Compared to a massive number of good reviews, showcases, and detailed comparisons of Multilogin, their "9-year refined anti-detect technology" statement seems to be simply truthful.
Just a few third-party reviews
No Trustpilot or G2 reviews
No YouTube videos
Little authority from external sources
Lots of (good) reviews and comparisons
Trustpilot – ⭐4.5
G2 – ⭐4.8
Authority proof – multiple industry awards
It’s hard not to see a big gap in authority and a strange discrepancy of capability purely from the point of self-description. And when adding reputation, Multilogin is the overwhelming winner.

Multilogin has a full suite of features, some of which require advanced knowledge, making it more suitable for teams and businesses with the ability to share tasks. It’s a well-regarded solution offering some of the best features in the industry, albeit pricey compared to alternatives.
Insomniac is worth considering if you need multi-accounting only for single-person use with no technical prowess required or just want to begin antidetect browsing for the very first time.
