it’s always a good idea to try out alternatives. 🙂 Welcome to Arora: (under Debian-Gnome3)
For several months, Meyer discontinued development of Arora due to uncertainty about the strictures of non-compete clauses by his employer; finally in July 2011, he announced that he would no longer contribute to the project. Another software developer, Bastien Pederencino forked Arora’s source code, and published a variant called zBrowser – renamed Zeromus Browser in February 2013. In May 2013, Pederencino published another variant called BlueLightCat. In February 2014, some new patches were released on Arora’s github project page, with some Linux distributions incorporating the changes in their individual versions of Arora packages in their repositories.
under Debian it’s easy as the usual:
apt-get update; # update apt package definitions apt-get install arora; # install arora browser
- fast, sleak, efficient, webkit without Google influenced Firefox (they get millions for making Google the default search engine…)
- AdBlock INCLUDED 🙂
- Nice Page-loading %percentage% view
- Excellent https://startpage.com/ / https://ixquick.com/ integration 🙂
- You can use all the Firefox-Hotkeys like Alt+D to select the Adress-Bar
It has Adblock INCLUDED! 🙂 No extension needed! GOOD JOB!
What features i would love to see:
- easy Tor enable/disable buttone 😀 (if that is not making it very bulky)
