A dialog for notifications is also included.
QupZilla features an integrated RSS reader that allows you to stay up to date with your favorite websites. This web browser has been originally created only for educational purposes. Its main goal is to be a very fast and secure QtWebKit browser available to everyone. Users can import bookmarks from other sites and customize the browser’s interface with a few clicks. The preferences window has some fantastic privacy features to protect your identity online.
Bookmarking your favorite sites is very easy. All you have to do is to hit the star in the search bar and then choose a place to save it to. Configuring this browser is similar to configuring Firefox. The preferences menu has lots of options including a password manager, a download manager, notifications, and network proxy configurations. This advanced program loads pages very fast and has the ability to pass off external programs and parameters as the download manager. QupZilla is relatively new and bugs are being worked out, so make sure you give it a try.
