Arora, a refreshing new Qt/WebKit browser

Filed under
Software

The Gentoo Qt maintainers have been doing a fantastic job of getting cutting edge Qt software into shape with the qting-edge overlay. I’ve been running Qt 4.5 since beta1 and am quite impressed. Recently they bumped the Arora ebuild to version 0.5. Arora is a lightweight browser based on Qt and WebKit.

I must say, I am impressed. This browser is lightning fast. The interface is pleasing, yet minimalist. You get all the benefits of recent WebKit, and the nice cross-platform nature of Qt. It feels much faster than Konqueror4.2, and the recent WebKit engine means better compatibility.

Having experience with both (and more) distros, we decided to do a comparison of CentOS and Ubuntu when used for a server. Read more
