Arora web browser review

Jan 07, 2010, 03:03 (0 Talkback[s])
(Other stories by Richard Ibbotson)

"Pros:

"Lightweight web browser that works on just about any platform and on slow hardware

"Cons:

"It doesn’t have that many features yet. It’s still in the early stages of development

"Arora is a simple and lightweight cross-platform web browser based on the WebKit web browser engine, which has a small memory footprint. It can do some things that the more sophisticated web browsers can do. WebKit is also the name of the Mac OS X system framework version of the engine that’s used by Safari, Dashboard, Mail and many other OS X applications. WebKit is a browser engine which was originally forked from KHTML and is now developed further by Apple, Nokia, Adobe, Trolltech and others. There is also co-operation going on between KHTML and WebKit, but only to a certain extent."
