Arora is a free and open source lightweight cross-platform web browser. It runs on Linux, Mac OS X, Windows, FreeBSD, OS/2, Haiku, and any other platforms supported by the Qt toolkit. Arora's name is a palindrome.
Arora's features include bookmarks, history, tabbed browsing, smart location bar, OpenSearch, session management, privacy mode, download manager, WebInspector and AdBlock. The developer suspended his involvement in the project for several months due to uncertainty over a non-compete clause, but as of July 2011, he officially quit developing Arora.
After that, Bastien Pederencino took over the source code of Arora in order to update it. In 2011 he developed a new free web browser called zBrowser. It was renamed Zeromus Browser in February 2013, and forked in May 2013 in order to create BlueLightCat.
