KDE's Rekonq browser turns 1.0

Filed under

KDE developer Jonathan Riddell has announced that the Rekonq web browser has now reached version 1.0 and is available to download. Rekonq is a QtWebKit-based alternative to the more feature-rich Konqueror browser for the KDE desktop; it uses the WebKit rendering engine and aims to be faster, lightweight and simpler to use.

According to a blog post by developer Adjam, the focus of the 1.0 milestone of Rekonq was "cleaning up code and fixing bugs" to improve the application's overall stability. Adjam says that all of the 300+ bugs which were open on the project's KDE Bugzilla page during development were checked over and that more than 40 "REAL" bugs were fixed in the 1.0 release.
