rekonq is a lightweight, QtWebKit-based web browser developed inside the free software project KDE. It was the default web browser of Kubuntu (between 10.10 and 13.10) and Chakra GNU/Linux. rekonq has been officially included into KDE Extragear on May 25, 2010. In contrast to Konqueror, which has been KDE's main web browser for years, rekonq aims to be a standalone and simple web browser. Its code was initially based on Qt Development Frameworks' QtDemoBrowser and is developed on KDE Projects' Git repository.
rekonq integrates into the KDE desktop, e.g. downloading files through KDE download system, sharing bookmarks with Konqueror, KIO support, etc. rekonq possesses most of the features of a modern web browser, specifically:
- Tabbed browsing
- Unique loading address bar
- Ad blocker
- Support for plugins (Flash, Java)
- Proxy support
rekonq uses the WebKit HTML rendering engine.
