@kde How have i never heard of this?
It came up clean. Not prefilled with bookmarks I didn't ask for. No ads. has an adblocker by default and defaults to ddg for SE. Not asking me to 'share' telemetry. Ima play around with it!

@gemlog

You may have heard of it.

It got a name change from "Qupzilla" to "Falkon" after it became an official KDE project!

@MutoShack No, that's not ringing any bells either. I'm just getting old I guess.
Which, you know, beats the alternative! :-)

@gemlog

That's fair. It was never extremely popular, either (even by Free Software standards), so that may be a contributing factor.

I personally was never a fan of Qupzilla, but Falkon is really nice! It may just be the good marketing that's changing my mind, or it could really be better. It always takes me a while to tell 😅

@MutoShack Back in the day i used konqueror, which was nice, because my web browser was also my gui file manager. It had a nice feature for splitting the screen as well as tabs.
Sadly, it fell behind and I adopted FF - which wasn't evil yet back then.
