QtWeb is a web browser focused on strong privacy and a clean environment. While running, no traces are left on the host machine while browsing and none are left behind after a browser "reset" in the privacy menu. All toolbars, including navigation bar, can be turned off or docked anywhere, and even moved outside the main browsing window. Includes built-in support for Torrent downloads and ad-blocking functionality can be easily enabled.

Based on Qt framework and Apple's WebKit rendering engine (also used by Apple Safari).

Security note: development of this browser appears to have stalled and the software may be subject to security vulnerabilities.

I adjusted the entry for the fact that Qt is now a publicly traded company, no longer owned by Digia. (Funnily enough, it's traded in Nasdaq Helsinki, of all stock exchanges...)

I was worried that QtWeb was as dead as K-meleon. It hadn't been updated in more than a year. Thankfully, I was wrong.

QtWeb makes for a great secondary browser or portable browser, or even as a primary browser if you don't like bloatware. It's small and fits on a flash ram of at least 2GB, and contains all modern web technologies except java.

The lack of java isn't a problem for those who don't visit sites laden with that crap. It works with adobe flash, so youtube and other sites work fine.

The only downside to QtWeb is a lack of plugins or extensions. It would be nice to have an adblocker (especially for youtube) or other content blocker.

Not bad but can't work with Java.

I like it, the only portable browser without registry write to my system, and without any wrapper to clean registry after exit.

Problem that its skin is awful.

Still page loading problems...

Nowhere near as functional/customizable as other browsers but still a very good secondary browser. Extremely lightweight when you consider how much disk space and memory Firefox, Chrome/= or Opera can take up.

Still page loading problems, still using v3.3...

Tried ver 3.3 and sites loaded with no problem on XP. Thanks for the tip.

Still the same page loading troubles as with 3.5 and 3.7. I'm reverting to 3.3 which seemed to work perfectly fine on Win7x64.

Nice browser, but it doesn't load some pages I've had trouble with in the past. It is extremely light on resources and portable, so it certainly looks promising, and I will keep my eye on this one. I use Opera as my primary browser, K-Meleon as secondary, and Seamonkey third. Seamonkey, like FF, is a resource hog, but at least it has a mail client, HTML editor, and IRC built-in. Also, it's 100% compatible on every site I've used it on.
