Mac OS X image available and support for PAC proxy

Mac OS X image available
Thanks to Seyyed Razi Alavizadeh, Mac OS X image of 1.4.1 version is now available to download.
You can download it the same way as other versions, from homepage.

Support for Proxy Auto-Config (PAC)
QupZilla now supports loading PAC files for configuring proxy. You need to specify URL for PAC file in Preferences. PAC files can also be stored locally (as seen in screenshot).
All JavaScripts functions from PAC standard are available for scripts, so that means every PAC script should work just fine.
However, please note that there is dnsResolve function that is blocking and may hang the browser for some time (there is no way to prevent it). So if you experience hangs, try disabling PAC proxy.

Option to choose PAC file in Preferences.

From time to time I am getting a question how to donate money. Since you asked for it, it is now possible to donate money via PayPal from Contribute section at homepage. I'll be very thankful for any amount.


  1. What are operating systems's requirements for Mac OS X's Qupzilla?

    1. http://qt-project.org/doc/qt-4.8/supported-platforms.html

  2. What about Mac OS X PPC? The only port I know is by Macports.

  3. Hey David
    First off, great work on a great browser. I'm really glad you and a few others are making and working on webkit browsers that aren't just chrome clones.
    My real reason for writing this comment is about bookmarks. I have a fairly large bookmark collection with many different sections and many different folders. There is also many nested folders, foders within folders. But since Qupzilla doesn't have nested folders my bookmarks in Qupzilla are a huge mess. Any chance you are working on adding that feature to Qupzilla in the near future? Its really the only big reason I can't use Qupzilla as my main Linux browser.

  4. I use the latest git version on Arch, However, SOCKS PAC files don't work.
    Http PAC files work perfectly.

    1. Can you please open bug report at github? Thanks

  5. Is there any option to provide PAC file location? I am on Archlinux and using :

    Application version 1.4.3
    WebKit version 537.21

    But I don't see any option to provide the same. I am missing anything?

    1. It's only supported in git builds right now.

  6. hello i am very pleased to discover this browser
