    Introduction to rekonq

    Based initially on qtwebkit (and currently or kdewebkit), rekonq is a lightweight browser designed to use the WebKit rendering engine in combination with various KDE technologies, allowing it to integrate seamlessly into the KDE desktop. The name is a reference to the venerable khtml-based Konqueror which is currently the default KDE web browser.

    rekonq has already replaced Konqueror as the default browser in Chakra, with more distributions expressing similar intent for their future releases. The current stable release version is rekonq 1.0 (July 2012).
