QupZilla

Sponsor: Christoph Cullmann <cullmann@kde.org>

QupZilla is a QtWebEngine based cross-platform web browser.

During the Akademy 2017 Konqueror BoF, the ex-maintainer of Konqueror, David Faure, proposed to integrate QupZilla into KDE in order to replace the aging Konqueror. (His reasoning is that QupZilla is already much more advanced in terms of webbrowsing features, and there is almost nobody working in Konqueror, so there is no point in duplicating efforts).

Name proposals (order does not imply anything):

  • Ryōshi ("fisherman" in Japanese)
  • Eco
  • Ion
  • Falkon
  • Cube
  • Kiran
  • Quest
  • Kitsune ("fox" in Japanese)

Team

  • David Rosca <nowrep@gmail.com> - project maintainer
  • Seyyed Razi Alavizadeh <s.r.alavizadeh@gmail.com>


Manifesto Compliance Plan

Values

Open Governance

At the moment development/bugtracking/... happens on github:

https://github.com/QupZilla/qupzilla

The maintainer ok'd that this is moved over to KDE infrastructure during the incubation and the normal commit rights apply.

GPL v3+

Inclusivity

No barrier known toward the contributors.

Innovation

Using state-of-the-art web rendering engine, providing a cross-platform browser. Nothing too innovative but something at the moment missing in the KDE Applications.

Common Ownership

All clear no known barrier, anyone can contribute directly.

End-User Focus

Web browser => clearly targeted to our normal userbase
