Dooble Web Browser

#1 Post by I am Baas » Tue Jul 05, 2011 4:37 pm

Dooble is a new Open Source Web browser that focuses on compactness, security, and stability. Dooble is the only Web browser that encodes a user's browsing information.
http://dooble.sourceforge.net/

Saves settings to Documents and Settings\User Name\.dooble + Writes Trolltech keys to the registry.

Portable settings, and data is my request to the developers of Dooble.

I found a previous request here.

The response makes me think that the developers have never even heard, or thought of portable anything.



Please anyone who supports portable software comment, or post a better request.

Some notes:
  • From the trolltech registry entries, I'm guessing this is QT-based like Chrome and Safari. The site isn't real clear about that.
  • Its GPL'd and I like the inclusion of a file manager and FTP. There's some great Firefox plugins that do this, but a little more native support sounds like a very good thing, especially on Mac.
  • Download.com gave it a somewhat tepid review

The latest version of Dooble is 1.54 and it seems that it saves all its data and settings inside its own folder. However I do not like this browser for several reasons- insufficient tabs settings, password protection is mandatory (if the user doesn't create a password Dooble doesn't save browsing data and settings on exit) and no way to import bookmarks. Once I wrote about the impossibility to import bookmarks from a HTML file but it seemed that the developers simply didn't care.
