Description:
Browse the World Wide Web
Arora is a lightweight cross-platform web browser. It's free (as in free speech and free beer). Arora runs on Linux, embedded Linux, FreeBSD, Mac OS X, Windows, Haiku, and any other platforms supported by the Qt toolkit.

Arora uses the QtWebKit port of the fully standards-compliant WebKit layout engine. It features fast rendering, powerful JavaScript engine and supports Netscape plugins.

Apart from the must-have features such as bookmarks, history and tabbed browsing Arora boasts:

very fast startup
integration with desktop environments
smart location bar
session management
privacy mode
flexible search engine management
download manager
WebInspector, a set of tools for web developers
30 translations
Arora began as a demo by Benjamin Meyer to help test the QtWebKit component, but since then it has grown into its own project outside of Qt.

Arora has a small, simple code base that is fun to hack on. Join the party in #arora on irc.freenode.org!

Even though this version of Arora is a bit old, out of all the non-Links browsers I've tried, it works the best on my classic Pandora.

Cool. Do you have a git repo for arora? I wouldn't mind having a go at those pesky dialogs myself.

As I updated from QT4 to QT5, I'll try another build soon.

Is there likely to be any further work on this? It's the only browser which remains responsive and works reasonably well on my CC unit. It would be cool if there was an option to ignore all the certificate warnings? Apart from that its pretty much there...

When my laptop died, Firefox and QupZilla could not handle my typical usage pattern (lots of tabs) while staying usable. Arora made it possible to use my OpenPandora (original) to search for a replacement laptop. I did hit a few bugs, but it is much more stable than Chrome and Midori.
