Software Review: the Rekonq Web Browser

Filed under
Software
  • Application: Rekonq
  • Version: 0.6.1
  • Platform: Arch linux
  • Desktop: KDE 4.6.0
  • Packages: rekonq
  • Pros: Fast performance, Web Kit based, new tab page, simple and intuitive GUI, tight KDE desktop integration
  • Cons: Doesn’t play nicely with KDE activities, session saving is problematic, a separate search bar would be better
  • The Verdict: Not quite ready for prime-time, but has lots of potential.

Interface:

The Rekonq interface is the height of no-frills simplicity. The main toolbar consists simply of back and forward buttons, the stop/reload button, the URL bar, and the configuration tool. By default the bookmarks toolbar is also enabled. Overwhelmingly, the focus here is on the web pages.
