Arora is a cross-platform free software web browser using the WebKit rendering engine to draw web content. It is built on top of version 4 of the Qt. It has a very a minimalistic and lightweight interface, tab management, simple history and bookmarks system and global user CSS.


[edit] History

The original codebase was written for Trolltech by Benjamin C Meyer ("icefox"), a Qt developer.

It was released as the Qt Demo Browser as part of Qt 4.4.0, demonstrating the capabilities of the then-new Qt-WebKit integration. After the release, Meyer forked the code and continued working on it independently, under the name Arora.[1]

[edit] Proxy support

Arora can use a Socks5 or http proxy.
