Opera-Like Otter Web Browser Out In Alpha Form
Phoronix: Opera-Like Otter Web Browser Out In Alpha Form
A few days ago I wrote about a Qt5-powered web-browser inspired by Opera that's open-source and would see its first development release soon. There was lots of interest in the project with many Opera users having experienced a falling-out with the closed-source browser's recent versions. Now as of yesterday Otter Alpha 1 is available...
A message just to subscribe the thread, I already shared my toughts on the other Otter-browser related one.
Be warned that these packages are highly experimental, especially DEB, it will be hard to satisfy dependencies, AFAIK Qt 5.2.0 is not packaged yet for Debian / (K)Ubuntu...
But you can always extract binary and run it with SDK.
I encountered this problem but fortunately it was easy to build with the packages from qt-project.org. On Kubuntu I required the gstreamer and gstreamer base plugins dev packages to be installed but otherwise it was fairly straightforward.

It would be nice to setup wiki page with such information, (also listing runtime dependencies for Windows, since it is as usual harder target), I'll try to add it in coming days (one place to collect all possible caveats).
BTW, the only part of my clone I had actually started on was an URL matching lib, for the content blocking. You inspired me to hack it up today into a presentable condition.
If you'd like to use it in Otter, take a look at
@curaga, interesting. :-)
I was looking for something like that (also for site specific preferences, since I would like add matching rules instead of simply matching host), so far I've found only this:
I don't have time to analyze it right now, so I'll have some questions here.
Does it load file from disk itself or you have to set list to it?
How it plays with non-ASCII characters in URLs?
