QtWeb: Compact and Secure Internet Browser
Firefox-powered browsers are quite common and I have even reviewed a few them in the past, Flock, Orca etc. but you don’t see browsers based on Nokia Qt framework often.
QtWeb is one such web browser, that is compact, portable and secure, and uses Apple’s WebKit rendering engine. In case you didn’t know, Apple’s very own Safari and Chrome also use WebKit to render websites.
One of the first things I check after installing a new web browser is its memory usage. And surprisingly, QtWeb only used 20-25 MB with one tab opened.
- Tabbed and non-tabbed Interface
- Move or undock Navigation and Bookmarks bar
- Private Browsing with masked User Agent
- Full browser reset feature
- Low memory usage and portable app
QtWeb has all the features that you can expect from a web browser, plus some unique user interface and privacy features. It allows you to change it’s Application Style, and see how websites websites look under different versions of Windows and Unix environment. You can also move inside the browser window or undock and place your Navigation and Bookmarks Bar on your desktop.
For privacy issues, you can turn on Private Browsing mode to avoid leaving traces of browsing. It even masks your UserAgent which is being sent to the web server.
In short, QtWeb is a great browser with very low resource usage, small in size and is portable so that you can carry it around in your USB drive.
