Arora is a lightweight, cross-platform, free and open-source web browser developed by Benjamin C. Meyer. Arora is available for Linux, OS X, Windows, FreeBSD, OS/2, Haiku, and any other operating system supported by the Qt toolkit. Arora's name is a palindrome.
For several months, Meyer discontinued development of Arora due to uncertainty about the strictures of a non-compete clause; finally, in July 2011, he announced that he would no longer contribute to the project. Another software developer, Bastien Pederencino forked Arorar's source code, and published a variant called zBrowser—renamed Zeromus Browser in February 2013. In May 2013 he published another variant called BlueLightCat.
