Qupzilla browser Ubuntu

QupZilla is a lightweight and very fast QtWebKit browser. It has been originally started only for educational purposes. But from its start, QupZilla has grown into a feature-rich browser.

The latest version 1.6.1 added option to enable tab switching using the mouse scroll wheel; a toggle to disable inline URL completion in the address bar; and the ability to launch full-screen mode using the command line.

There are also other changes and a few bug fixes in QupZilla 1.6.1:

  • added undo/redo context menu actions in editable web elements
  • speedup loading rules from subscriptions in AdBlock dialog
  • fixed speed dial with disabled javascript
  • fixed showing tooltips on tabs when tab previews are disabled
  • fixed search shortcuts longer than one character in locationbar
  • fixed building issues on OS X and OS/2
  • fixed disabling tab previews from preferences
  • fixed building new Gnome/KDE keyring passwords
  • fixed building StatusBarIcons plugin on Windows
  • win: add new jumplist option to open private window

These commands will install the QupZilla from its official PPA. Supports Ubuntu 14.04, Ubuntu 13.10, Ubuntu 12.10, Ubuntu 12.04, Linux Mint and their derivatives.

BTW: The developer announced in the release note that:

QupZilla will in future be ported to QtWebEngine, which will (amongst other improvements) bring multi-process architecture.
With QtWebEngine comes dependency on Qt 5, which means older platforms may not be supported.
QupZilla on QtWebEngine will be new major version 2.x.x and I hope it will be ready with Qt 5.3 (or Qt 5.4), depending on Qt devs.

QtWebKit browser QupZilla 1.6.0 has been released a few days ago. Here’s how to install it via PPA in Ubuntu 13.10, Ubuntu 13.04, Ubuntu 12.10, Ubuntu 12.04, Linux Mint and their derivatives.

This release comes with new TabBar implementation that supports scrolling through all tabs when tabs don’t fit at all into TabBar. So it means, no more overflowing of tabs!

LocationBar received new completion feature – inline completion. You can now write only first letter and the most used domain will be completed. Once you see the completion, you can just press Enter and load the site.
