How can you find so a lot of new things ?  :)

I try, but it's a monster. 250-300 MB to download.  :D

He got excited, but is discouraged by its size.

Non, ├ža passe.  ^-^

If somebody will the compiled package (30' with 8 threads 2,8 Ghz at 100%); he can find that HERE. I uploaded the result.

But I dont understand how it works : I have nothing in the menu ? Nothing in /usr/bin, but some installed in /usr/lib, etc...

How can we run this browser ?  :o

It's Chromium + a Qt layer.

There's also this by the same maintainer (a qupzilla developer I guess):

The list of files contained in this package HERE. I don't see an executable in that.

Maybe it's an add-on, a workshop ??  No idea?

What could it be ?  ::)

just a quick update:

with the latest version of otter-browser, it integrates ad blocking and supports bookmarks and a bookmark bar.

i have tried to watch youtube videos (with the "flashplugin" package installed) and it works fine. i have not tried to use html5 video, though.

the developer also starts to work on qtwebengine support.


i am using otter-browser as my second web browser for a while and i like it. there are still some improvements i would like to see in the future.

I installed both browsersers Qupzilla an Otter-Browser. I prefer Qupzilla because of a more polished look. I hate the new tab button in Otter and the skewed magnifying glas symbol in the search field. I would like to change its appearance but cannot find a way how to do it. Normally I would look for image files in programms registry and maybe swap an image with a self-designed one. But in this case I think it is better to wait, because it is being heavily developed and the developer maybe will do it himself soon.
Qupzilla seems fast to me and it looks good so I'm goind to beatify it with quick launch links and try to understand all of the settings. I just disabled all cache and history settings, because I think a program should only remeber what I want it to remember using a bookmark.

Qupzilla impressed me very much in recent days. I would prefer it to any I got to know. It has superior speed, looks good, displays any site I visit without problems. I have to confirm that I didn't visit any benchmark sites - What for? I don't surf the web the way these benchmarks are composed.

But now I have a serious problem: My profile is lost!! And I cannot make a new one! Qupzilla simply doesn't save my settings and starts with initial settings each time. I don't have any bookmarks anymore, no quicklaunch links. I have a backup profile, though. How could I restore my profile then?

The reason might be that I have profile-sync-daemon enabled...

I could then copy the backup registry and rename it to qupzilla, but there is s.th. funny. The file manageger tells me that a registry qupzilla already exists, but I cannot see it.
Wrong, it is there, but it is a symlink.
I'm doing what Arch Wiki sais, I stop psd.service, look if the symlink is gone, it is not, so I delete it. Then I copy the backup registry and rename it. I start Qupzilla and everything is back!!  ;D ;D :D :D
It just took Qupzilla a bit longer to start, so I clicked two times and two windows appeared.
Now I'm going to reenable psd.service.

Yesterday I installed qupzilla-git from AUR. It is based on qt5-webengine. Installation took very long, half an hour or so. With all dependencies it took ca. 100MB disk space.
Well, it has a slightly differen look and feel, more fancy, scrolling is smoother. But loading sites feels "a bit of a bit" ;) slower.
There are however some more serious glitches:
- Speeddial doesn't work. It tries to load Qupzilla home page as first symbolic window, but the loading animation goes on and on. I filed a bug report to the developer.
- Right click on a link doesn't give the usual context menu, there are only Back, Forward, Reload, Navigate to... and Copy link address options.

I think about going back to normal Qupzilla.

Edit: I looked at the task manager and noticed that there is a QtWebEngineProcess running between 1 and 10% of my CPU. That makes my fan go a little faster and never slowing down to slowest level. I'll definitely uninstall that WebEngine stuff.
Edit2: The WebEngine issue was on Manjaro forum site, when I'm writing a message. When I just read the forum or go to other sites with less complex content, the process slows down.
Edit3: Both issues occur in both LXQt and XFCE. It seems that Qupzilla 1.9.0 is simply not ready yet.
