Rekonq, the promising KDE WebKit-powered web-browser, is nearly ready for its version 1.0 release.
One month after the Rekonq 1.0 Tech Preview
release, Rekonq 1.0 Beta is now available, as mentioned on a Rekonq developer's blog
. It's also been confirmed on the project's mailing list
Among the features of this open-source KDE web-browser that relies upon QtWebKit is a simpler and standalone design compared to KDE's Konqueror, tabbed browsing support for plug-ins, proxy support, ad block for those not supporting publishers, sync support, and other features.
KDE Rekonq 1.0 Beta can be downloaded from their current (temporary and simple) rekonq.kde.org
