About QupZilla

QupZilla is a new and very fast QtWebKit browser. It aims to be a lightweight web browser available through all major platforms. This project has been originally started only for educational purposes. But from its start, QupZilla has grown into a feature-rich browser.

QupZilla has all standard functions you expect from a web browser. It includes bookmarks, history (both also in sidebar) and tabs. Above that, you can manage RSS feeds with an included RSS reader, block ads with a builtin AdBlock plugin, block Flash content with Click2Flash and edit the local CA Certificates database with an SSL Manager.

QupZilla's main aim is to be a very fast and very stable QtWebKit browser available to everyone. There are already a lot of QtWebKit browsers available, but they are either bound to the KDE environment (rekonq), are not actively developed or very unstable and miss important features. But there is missing a multiplatform, modern and actively developed browser. QupZilla is trying to fill this gap by providing a very stable browsing experience.

History

The very first version of QupZilla has been released in Decemeber 2010 and it was written in Python with PyQt4 bindings. After a few versions, QupZilla has been completely rewritten in C++ with the Qt Framework. The Windows version of QupZilla was compiled using MingW, but due to a huge problem with Flash, it is now compiled with Microsoft Visual C++ Compiler 2008. First public release was 1.0.0-b4.

Compiling

Before you start compiling, make sure that you have installed the Qt (>=4.7) development libraries and you have read the BUILDING information.

Linux

  • OpenSSL (libcrypto) is required
  • pkg-config is recommended (to correctly detect versions of QtWebKit)
  • pkg-config is required for Hunspell spellcheck
  • Hunspell development package for spellcheck
  • QtWebKit 2.3 is needed to have support for spellcheck

Windows

  • OpenSSL (libeay32) is required
  • QtWebKit 2.3 is required
  • Hunspell library is required for spellcheck

Then you can start compiling by running this commands:

$ qmake
$ make

After a successful compilation the executable binary can be found in the bin/ directory. On Fedora and possibly other Linux distributions you need to replace qmake with qmake-qt4 or qmake-qt5 since qmake is for Qt3.

On Linux/Unix: To install QupZilla, run this command: (it may be necessary to run it as root)

$ make install

On Mac OS X: To deploy QupZilla in dmg image, run this command:

$ ./mac/macdeploy.sh full-path-to-macdeployqt

You need to specify path to macdeployqt only if it is not in PATH.

Current version

The current stable version of QupZilla is 1.6.4. You can download precompiled packages and the sources from the download section at homepage. However, if you want the latest revision, just take the latest code snapshot either by downloading a tarball or running:

$ git clone git://github.com/QupZilla/qupzilla.git

If you are using Ubuntu, you can download QupZilla from PPA:

$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:nowrep/qupzilla
$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get install qupzilla

for development version:

$ sudo apt-get install qupzilla-next
