QupZilla

Submit portable freeware that you find here. It helps if you include information like description, extraction instruction, Unicode support, whether it writes to the registry, and so on.

QupZilla

#1 Post by I am Baas » Tue Dec 27, 2011 3:47 am

QupZilla is a new and very fast QtWebKit browser. It aims to be a lightweight web browser available through all major platforms. This project has been originally started only for educational purposes. But from its start, QupZilla has grown into a feature-rich browser.

QupZilla has all standard functions you expect from a web browser. It includes bookmarks, history (both also in sidebar) and tabs. Above that, you can manage RSS feeds with an included RSS reader, block ads with a builtin AdBlock plugin, block Flash content with Click2Flash and edit the local CA Certificates database with an SSL Manager.

They've replied already.
Hi,
currently, only profile data are written outside program directory (Documents/.qupzilla folder).
There is no writing into windows register.
I will add build DEFINE to use profile directory inside exe directory and probably release standalone portable build

I really liked this site's format along with github to enable bug/feature submissions. Other sites should definitely use this model.

Nemo Docs (not portable but a great idea) also has an great system using the getsatisfaction (not a free service) site.

With the 'zilla' in it's name I was expecting this to actually use Gecko despite the fact I know all QT browsers use WebKit. Bit of a misleading name.

So how does this compare to QtWeb ?

The author has added that DEFINE.

From now on, it's possible to compile a portable version of QupZilla. However, it seems the author hasn't done that (yet?).

I'm anxious to try the portable version when released.

BTW - Happy New Year to all of you!

v1.1.5 is out and a portable edition (ZIP) is available.
Download: http://www.qupzilla.com/download#download
Changelog: https://github.com/nowrep/QupZilla/wiki/Changelog

However, I found it writing Trolltech stuff to the registry after all...

Thank you, Emka.

Tested V1.1.5.

Now only writes qtsingleapp-QupZil-b880-1-lockfile to Temp folder in user\current\AppData\Local\ + the usual Trolltech keys to the registry.

@moderator

Please move to the submission sub-forum. Thanks.

Thanks Emka and Baas for checking into this. Its a pretty happy turn of events that we ask a developer to change a program where there's community interest and the very next release sees a portable version. I hope we see more examples in the same the way nowrep executed here.

Great news.
