The Qt5 WebEngine is based on chromium so websites work as expected. I like that it is highly customizable, and hotkey oriented.

good:

  • lightweight; best non-terminal browser in terms of memory usage
  • hella scriptable
  • command hints/tab completion for those unfamiliar with vim-style key schemes

bad:

  • customization requires a lot of work, and scripts written by others are not within any central repository

Developed by a guy in Switzerland. While it will work like a standard browser in some ways, you can tell it is not geared for the average user. You can still use a standard keyboard and mouse aside from its unique keyboard capabilities, but the interface is very minimal.. no extensions. Getting to settings, bookmarks, cookies, etc is shrouded in mystery, but there are commands to get there for "the initiated".

Requires Win8+, but Win8+ is bullshit.

The built in ad block doesn't seem to block youtube ads anymore, but it's still a lightweight and intuitive browser

Amazing browser with vi-like keyboard shortcuts. Hint: use the updated version from git to avoid some annoiances like lack of support for client pfx certificates on olders versions.
