About QtWebEngine and QupZilla
QupZilla will in future be ported to QtWebEngine, which will (amongst other improvements) bring multi-process architecture. 
With QtWebEngine comes dependency on Qt 5, which means older platforms may not be supported.
QupZilla on QtWebEngine will be new major version 2.x.x and I hope it will be ready with Qt 5.3 (or Qt 5.4), depending on Qt devs.

  3. Thanks for this changelog.
    About QtWebEngine, I have to say that I hate multi-process architecture, one ot the reason for I left Opera (Opera 15+ has multi-process architecture).
    So I think it would be the same for Qupzilla.

    1. Actually in QtWebEngine, it should be called out-of-process engine. It only use one background web process.
      As a result, if the web process crash, the application (QupZilla) will survive it. I don't really think there is anything to hate :D

    2. So the processes should be only 2?
      In that case, I will have nothing to hate! :)

    3. Oops, I'm sorry. Everything I wrote above is not true. I just checked it now and it really uses one process for every webview (tab).
      Anyway, it's still a long way to QtWebEngine.

  8. David,

    Why is that you're using webkit version 534.xx when there is a new version such as 537.xx available?

    I think you're doing a great thing with Qupzilla: it works great for me on Linux. Thanks.

    1. Release 1.6.1 is with webkit 537.21 and not 534.xx.

      But David, any idea about bump it to latest release of QtWebkit? Or it wil be as is until moving to QtWebEngine?

    4. Windows builds are using Qt 4 & QtWebKit 2.3 (537.21). It will probably stay the same until switch to QtWebEngine. The reason is that Qt 5 Windows builds have issues with Flash (probably with all NPAPI plugins). If it ever gets fixed, I'll update the builds to use Qt 5. But for now, the current Qt 4 & QtWebKit 2.3 works the best.

      For the Linux, it will use system QtWebKit library. So if your system has old QtWebKit from Qt 4.8 (534.34) installed, it will use this old version.

    5. Hi David,

      The most likely (s)he's using linux builds.

      For the bump in webkit engine I'ḿ ok with this version. It works nice, majority of websites I visit render ok so no need to upgrade. But what happens sometimes, for instance, youtube say that my browser is outdated and support for it wil be descontinued but I can switch user agent and message won't appear. So no problem here too.

      Delete
  9. Still no HTML5 youtube support under Windows as i see :( Well, i check out again when you have switched to QTWebengine :)

  11. Hi, I installed Qupzilla on Elementary OS a couple days ago. It was working for a while, but now I can't seem to get any images to load on any websites. Is there a fix to this, or is it a temporary bug?

  14. Thanks for the great browser. There is one sentence - i unplug support js but on some sites it is necessary. Js can be controlled through the inclusion of the icon on the bottom, but it is not very convenient, as you have to do it every time for certain sites. Offer - make a white list of sites where js is automatically activated. Of course, this list can be replenished both manually and through the icons at the bottom of the menu option.
