Description : lightweight web browser based on Qt WebEngine
Falkon is a new and very fast Qt Webengine browser. It aims to be a
lightweight web browser available through all major platforms.
Falkon has all standard functions you expect from a web browser. It
includes bookmarks, history (both also in sidebar) and tabs. Above
that, you can manage RSS feeds with an included RSS reader, block ads
with a builtin AdBlock plugin, block Flash content with Click2Flash
and edit the local CA Certificates database with an SSL Manager.
Falkon is definitely the successor of the package qupzilla, which
is now obsolete, and will no longer be maintained. Falkon is now part
of KDE development works. I used to maintain the package for Qupzilla,
and will keep on maintaining the new-branded package.
This package closes bugs which are open for Clonezilla.
