    it's definitely a browser that I will try, it resemble to me the first firefox

    anyway it's nice to see that khtml returns to home (kde) after years of modifications (forks) by apple (webkit) then google (blink), in the true spirit of opensource

      Yes it has a nice GUI indeed, no nonsense just a simple Firefox 1.x/2.x clone without the XUL, used it a bit when wanting a "small browser" like Midori or Epiphany and it was good at not crashing too.

      I guess it should fit in well with LXQt desktop, the latter is in a need for attention though (boring bugfixing and maintenance, or so I thought when I tried it, 0.10). Well there will be an upcoming LXQt 0.12.
      No relation to Qupzilla except the letter "Q" and the good wishes I have for them

        I use QupZilla when my usual browser doesn’t work with an important site, like for example paypal. However it’s not suitable for everyday use for me because of its poor support of dark web pages theming.

        Glad that "Falkon" will not depend on KDE. Not a fan of the name though! They should have kept QupZilla, I don’t see the point of changing…

          Qupzilla sounds too affiliated with Mozilla.

            "Kiran" was a much better name.

              Yes, Kiran would have been a nice name. Qupzilla works well on Wayland, it is fast and touch screen scrolling works perfectly. I might reconsider it, Firefox is still my favorite but they don't seem to care about these issues at the moment.
