The fast, WebKit-based browser for lovers of Konqueror

Looks a lot like Konqueror? Yes, it does, and that is going to please a lot of people. So what is different?

  • It's a new application, not built on legacy code
  • It uses WebKit, giving access to a whole new set of features and tools, which will allow further development.
  • It's fast! Your legacy browsers will never feel the same again.

Let's look at its features - does it have the ones you loved in Konqueror? Well, it's still early days, but so far it can boast

  • A clean, uncluttered look
  • Tabbed browsing
  • Support for kde web shortcuts
  • Shares your Konqueror bookmarks
  • Import of html bookmark files
  • Shares your Konqueror cookies
  • Renders many pages that Konqueror struggles with
  • Can navigate in a proxied network
  • Has a privacy mode, for anonymous browsing
  • Can inspect web pages.

Click on any of these for an enlarged screenshot:

Multiple windows an youtube
History panel and "clear private data"
Integral page zoom, findbar and private browsing enabled

You'll find these and other screenshots on Picasa. The project's home page is here.

The developers can be found on the IRC channel #rekonq and there is a mailing list for your questions.

Take a quick tour with this mini-overview, then sit back and enjoy the experience.
