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


"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."
