What's new in V3.1 (Released Sep 11, 2009):
- Multi-language support (5 languages)
- Web pages can be saved in Adobe Portable Format (PDF)
- Open links in tabs instead of new windows by default
- Bookmarks Tags (shortcuts) being added
- Download manager improved

Minor enhancements:
- Import bookmarks from HTML supports tags (shortcuts) properly
- Open in New Tab - context menu item added for bookmarks
- Proxy exceptions are evaluated as RegExps (wildcards pattern)
- Downloads window being closed with a browser (if no active downloads)
- PDF documents being just downloaded, no external application launched
- Optimized Settings access for read\only media (CD-ROM, protected USB, etc...)

Bug fixes:
- Relative path to Downloads location sometimes pointed to a wrong location
- Downloads window blinks while application closing sometimes

Really didn't think I needed another browser on my machine, but definitely glad I checked this out. If I was making a browser it would probably look like this. Just a few notes:

  • Probably the most portable browser on PFC

    - Memory - Seems to take up generally less memory than Iron as it doesn't have the whole protected memory space (which admittedly has other advantages) for each page.
    - Run from CD - Claims it will work on read-only media
    - Size - Tiny (5 megs)
    - One icon for one program - Nice to have a single EXE file and then you can manually delete the settings and cache folders it creates.
    - Privacy - this "one icon" element means you can WIPE your browser trail when you're done rather than just delete it.

  • Turn things off - I like being able to just disable whole page elements -- in this case pages, javascript, plugins, useragent, etc. Although sometimes that's good for privacy, I also like that some pages are just annoying and need all their bells and whistles turned off .. e.g. when you're reading an online article, you don't need any pictures.

  • Basic Adblock built right in. Although it doesn't seem to use the subscription system that's integrated into the Firefox "Adblock Plus" part.

Update: Oh and its GPL'd. None of the other browsers except K-Meleon (not updated much anymore) has that.

I think this has been mentioned elsewhere, but this project appears to be dead. Last update was pretty minor and more than 6 months ago, general forum look like idle and spammy.

I think this had a lot of promise as a minimalistic, user-controlled browser so I certainly hope it comes back to life or someone picks up the reigns. Meanwhile Chromium looks to be the only viable GPL browser left on the site.

Just want to note real quick, for me the Best thing about QtWeb is the ability to save webpages as PDF files, it makes a Great way to quickly make a pdf with just a little bit of HTML editing.
I So wish someone would fork it into a pure PDF creator based on that.

and if they'd upgrade when CSS3 is fully out, so the CSS-page* settings could be used, that would be just awesome, as QtWeb seems to 'print' the pdf files.
