Projects / Arora


Arora is a simple cross-platform Web browser whose feature list includes things like "History" and "Bookmarks". It has a small code base. It was originally created as a demo for Qt to help test the QtWebKit component and find API issues and bugs before the release. A very old version can still be found in Qt's source code in the demo/browser directory. Arora works on Linux, OS X, Windows, FreeBSD, and embedded Linux using Qt Embedded, and works anywhere else Qt does.
