This is a lightweight web browser written with Python and QT5.  This is the 0.4 version, which is also a major leap forward with a cleaner code.

Link to the release post, which has insturctions and download:


Taken from the relaease post:

"The browser currently has the following features:

-Open link in a new window.

-Notification support (xfce4-notifyd).

-Download files (via wget) and Bookmar online locations.

-Back, Forward, home, zoom buttons etc. are there.

-Search switch: easily use multiple search engines by addding a keyword to the search switch field. Then add the actual word to the search field. Default search engine is Privatelee (switch field left empty) . Currently added additional search engines are: Wikipedia search, Wolfram Alpha and Youtube search.

-There are now placeholder texts available to help users. Tip. Hover the mouse cursor over the switch field to  get instructional tooltip about the available search engines.

-The browser should support common Linux plugins after they are installed. Note. you will still need to install flashplugin-nonfree or equivalent in order to view Youtube videos. HTML5 playback is currently somewhat broken in QT and Webkit."

Enjoy and give feedback.

If your favorite search engine is missing or if there is a feature you would like to see then let me know., This browser is still under active development and will receive upgrades. In the future I will also make a Windows version out of it.

Edit. The browser also has a web inspector in it.
