"Arora: Arora is a Webkit based browser written with the Qt UI framework. It's surprisingly fast and pretty full featured. Arora has many of the features we expect in a modern browser, such as Flash blocking, ad blocking, private browsing mode, a bookmark manager, a history manager, privacy controls and even the Webkit inspector. Arora also runs on FreeBSD, Mac OS X, Windows, and Haiku. One downside to Arora is that it is not updated nearly as often as Firefox or Chrome.

"Epiphany is the official web browser of the GNOME desktop. It is a very easy to use Webkit based browser with a simplistic user interface. In fact, Epiphany is like the granddaddy of simple web browsers, delivering a simple user interface years before Chrome came on the scene. The browser is very speedy and polished, offering more features with each release. Epiphany makes a great alternative to Firefox and Chrome!"
