It is a very good lightweight browser based on QT libs, the best I've ever used. It doesn't crashes like midori does sometimes, and it's lighter than chromium!! It's really customizable and has adblock installed by default: as for the menus, they're pretty similar to firefox!

Just have a look here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/QupZilla
and try it, you won't want to come back!

Just tried it. It needed a bunch of qt dependencies installed so I went ahead and installed them. Long story short. It crashes in my Laptop. CPU was jumping all over the place. So I used apt-get purge qupzilla and then apt-get autoremove to get rid of the qt dependencies I installed. Took up about 40MB of installed space in /.

The QT web browser I linked to has everything needed in the folder to run statically without needing to install dependencies.

Howdy Anti.

Not really incredible if you realize that QupZilla was released first in 2010, but this thread is from 2009.

I am an Opera fanboy and have been since v. 3.x about a dozen years ago.

It's not just for the browsing; Opera includes a mail client, RSS client, IRC client, and newsgroup client (not recommended for binary newsgroups). For overall bang for your bytes, I find that you get more with Opera.
