QupZilla 2.1.1

The fast and lightweight QupZilla QtWebEngine web browser has reached the 2.1.1 release days ago with some fixes.

QupZilla is a new and very fast QtWebEngine browser since version 2.0. It aims to be a lightweight web browser available through all major platforms. This project has been originally started only for educational purposes. But from its start, QupZilla has grown into a feature-rich browser.

QupZilla 2.1.1 is a small release with following changes:

  • updated translations
  • fix loading previews in SpeedDial
  • fix showing duplicated languages in spellcheck settings
  • fix sometimes pages being scrolled by itself when using native scrollbars
  • fix disabling GreaseMonkey scripts
  • Windows: fix highlight text color in item views

Download QupZilla:

QupZilla 2.1.1 requires Qt5 >= 5.8. So far the only way to run it in Ubuntu is using the AppImage:

Download QupZilla 64bit AppImage

The AppImage is a non-install file, just make it executable from its Properties window:

make qupzilla executable

Then run the file from its context menu will bring up QupZilla browser:

run qupzilla appimage

If you don’t see the ‘Run’ option, go to menu of Nautilus file browser Edit -> Preferences -> Behavior -> Check the line says “Run executable text files when they are opened”.
