Inicialmente baseado no qtwebkit (e atualmente no kdewebkit), o rekonq é um navegador leve desenhado para usar o motor de renderização WebKit em combinação com diversas tecnologias do KDE, permitindo-o integrar-se perfeitamente ao ambiente KDE. O nome é uma homenagem ao venerável Konqueror baseado no khtml que é atualmente o navegador padrão do KDE.
O rekonq já substitui o Konqueror como navegador padrão no Chakra e no Kubuntu, com mais distribuições expressando intenção semelhante para seus futuros lançamentos. A versão estável atual é o rekonq 0.6.1.
Por padrão, a janela do rekonq usa somente uma barra de ferramentas. Esta barra consiste de quatro botões de navegação (, , , ), a barra de URL e dois menus/botões, um para os e um para as . Esta abordagem minimalista para a barra principal marca a mudança mais significativa de interface do tradicional paradigma de múltiplas barras de ferramentas da maioria dos outros navegadores como o Konqueror.
Further, the main toolbar offers only limited customization -(locked at the top of the window, by default), (medium, by default) and (not shown, by default). This helps keep the rekonq UI simple and puts the focus on the webpage on display.
Version 0.5.0 introduces the tech preview of a vastly improved URL bar that offers access to search engines from the drop down completion list itself. The completion list is also populated by matching items from your history and bookmarks.
When started, rekonq displays the New Tab page, much of which is taken by a set of preview thumbnails of favorite webpages. These thumbnails offer a speedy way for the user to access their most frequently used webpages. There is also a pane at the top of this page allows the user to switch to previews of recently closed tabs and lists of bookmarked webpages, download and browsing histories.
Further configuration options activate several other UI elements hidden by default. These include a toolbar for bookmarks, a panel (a panel, being a mini-window that can be resized, detached or re-docked in the main window) each for bookmarks and history and a web inspector panel (handy for web development).
Under its minimalist appearance, rekonq packs a full set of powerful features. Some of them are described below:
Integração com o KDE
rekonq is designed with the aim of being a KDE browser. And it shows;
It obeys your themes, fonts, window decoration, menu highlighting, and many personalization options you set for your desktop.
rekonq plays well with other applications in the KDE family. rekonq will always use your chosen default applications to handle file types. PDF files, for example will open in an embedded Okular kpart within rekonq itself. Media files will open in Dragon Player (or any other designated default application for that filetype).
Bookmarks, web shortcuts (more on these later), cookies and authentication information are shared with Konqueror. You will see the same set of bookmarks from either application and you can log onto a website in Konqueror and carry on seamlessly if you decide to switch to rekonq. Your passwords are stored securely in KWallet and can be used from either Konqueror or rekonq.
Your downloads can be optionally handled by KGet. Feeds from websites can be saved to Akregator (or Google Reader).
Suporte ao KIO
O rekonq suporta os serviços KIO, incluindo as configurações de cookies, cache, proxies e rede. Os KIO-slaves tais como file:/, ftp:/, man:/, help:/, info:/, etc, também funcionarão no rekonq.
In addition to all this, rekonq uses KDE's own file dialog for opening/saving documents. This means, you have access to the Places sidebar from Dolphin while you open or save documents.
Thus, rekonq looks, feels and behaves like a part of your KDE desktop.
O mecanismo WebKit
rekonq uses the open source WebKit rendering engine which incidentally began life as a branch of the khtml/kjs libraries from the KDE project. WebKit is fast, powerful and used by many other popular browsers today including Google's Chrome/chromium, Apple's Safari and others.
One of the benefits of using the WebKit engine, is that plugins can be disabled from automatically loading. This comes in handy to surf websites fast, without being bogged down by flash plugins. In the so-called Click-to-load mode, you will instead see a button that you can click on to activate the plugin.
Suporte ao Adblock
rekonq comes with an automatic subscription to the Easylist filter, which is updated every week. Additionally, you can set up manual filters to block loading of elements from webpages that match your criteria. You can even download and import additional published filterlists or export your list for backup.
Suporte aos atalhos da Web
rekonq allows you to pick from an extensive list of web shortcuts - these are keywords that allow you to search the web quickly. For instance, entering
in the location bar will search Google for "KDE", while
will search Wikipedia for "KDE". There are dozens of these defined by default. You can edit these or even define custom shortcuts to search on your favorite websites.
Características de segurança e privacidade
rekonq allows users to browse the web without retaining information about the visited pages in your history. Note that this feature does not necessarily make you anonymous on the Internet - it only prevents fresh information from being recorded on your computer. You can also delete your history, cookies and other private data anytime straight from the configuration menu button.
When viewing webpages over a secure connection, you can also view SSL information straight from the URLbar by clicking on theicon.
Advanced tab handling
rekonq allows you to rearrange your tabs on the fly. Just drag a tab to the left or to the right and the other tabs will move out of your way. You can also hover over a tab to see a live preview of the webpage being displayed there.
A context menu (right-click menu) gives access to more tab-related functions such as the ability to detach, clone, reload the tab.
Session restore feature
If rekonq crashes, it will automatically attempt to restore your session, complete with all the tabs the next time you start it. If for some reason, the browser continues to crash upon restoring the session, rekonq will automatically start with a fresh session the second time.
Modo em tela cheia
rekonq supports full-screening the webpage straight from the configuration menu button or through a keyboard shortcut (Ctrl+Shift+F, by default). In the full screen view, the main toolbar will auto-hide and the webpage will be displayed over your entire screen.
rekonq has a slider to adjust the zoom right from the configuration menu with a handy button to restore the zoom back to default. Of course, you can still use keyboard (Ctrl+ +/-) or mouse (Ctrl + mouse scroll up/down) shortcuts just the same.
