Install QupZilla QtWebKit browser in Ubuntu 14.04

QupZilla is a new and very fast QtWebKit browser. 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 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.

The latest release 1.6.6 comes with a number of bug fixes

  • added new AutoScroll plugin
  • added new F12 shortcut for Web Inspector
  • fixed: correctly switching between tabbars when closing tabs
  • fixed: draw tabbar base even when there are no tabs in main tabbar
  • fixed: position of add tab button when there are no tabs in main tabbar
  • mac: define application category in Info.plist
  • windows: load font.ttf (if exists) and use it as app font
  • linux: fixed setting correct paths for portable mode
