  5. For the next version my suggestion is to allow an option to force web pages to use the font you want. Right now you can set fonts in preferences, but they don't have any effect because the web pages still use their own fonts.

    Great browser btw!

  9. Thanks for your work, I have been using Qupzilla a lot lately and with these new features probably even more!

    By the way, at www.qupzilla.com it still says the current version is 1.3.1

  10. I have been using Qupzilla for about 2 months now in my xp computers and it is extremely fast and lightweight without having to adjust a million preferences for this browser to work properly..It does have its issues with flash animations as well as other types of streams..They do work but if you scroll the window while theyre playing they will tear and make them unwatchable until you backscroll to the position where you started it from,,and it has problems copying and pasting the exact text or command off of some web pages..Also you should be able to make it your default browser<>..In any case Thanks for all the work on this and Im waiting patiently for the 1.3.5 portable version as well...;)~

  12. Hello

    I have a question. I am trying to change the dock icon of the browser (on Linux Ubuntu 12.04) because it doesn't fit my theme well, but I'm having trouble. I have tried everything I can think of, to the point that there isn't a trace left of the old icon left on my hard drive and yet it still won't change. Any ideas?

  13. Very much I ask on behalf of interested, to compile for Windows the potativny version and an installer.

    With the browser it is completely happy but 1.3.1 it is often closed and destroyed

    2. Dear David, Qupzilla is really amazing, but unfortunately 1.3.1 always crash without reason. Qt always has many bugs, maybe you could take your time to do some debug.

      Good speed, my friend, i'm waiting the new release for windows. ^^

  15. A really nice browser, but unfortunately the ad blocker sucks. For example in Facebook it dosen't seem to block a single ad! :-/

    1. Try to add this rule:

      ##div.ego_column

      Delete
    2. Damn, my reply has gone nowhere!

      Ok I had said that your solution works perfectly, many thanks, :)
      But I also believe that rule, and the rules in the Adblock Plus lists that work so wonderfully on Firefox, should be in QZ ad blocker by default. The average user is not coming here to ask or find a solution, he will see all those advertisements and will switch to Firefox or any other browser with an eficacious ad blocker. So I thnk you should take this into account.

      Said that, I want to congratulate you for this nice, light and quick browser, :).
      Keep up the work, I think if it improved the stability and «stole» some ideas from Konqueror, it should be the default KDE browser.

  16. You do not plan to do spell check? Sorely lacking in your beautiful browser

  17. Hi,

    You have probably seen news of this:

    http://blogs.kde.org/2012/11/14/introducing-qtwebkit-23

    Will you try and make a release based on the newer QtWebkit? It sounds like there are some improvements in it which would really help QupZilla!

    Thanks again for the great browser!
