    I have been using the PortableApps version for a while now, it is very light. It's also in the Ubuntu repo.

    Daveski17, that's my opinion as well.

    I used it a lot at work, it always ran quickly. It may break the occasional page but you can't have everything lol.

    I took qupzilla for a spin myself and quite liked it.Youtube videos are a bit stuttery but otherwise it seemed to function ok.I like the little ip location info next to the adblock icon.

    I've noticed that QupZilla works very well with HTML5 built Web sites, and that's the future. If we can only get Web developers to faster embrace the new code, plus CCS3, in their site designs, it would get better for all browsers IMO.

    Yes, flash wouldn't work on some pages for me. I thought the font had changed on one or two sites I use with 1.8.8 as well.

    It looks like YouTube videos don't fully fill the page's screen until the Comments section below is rendered. Don't know if that's a browser issue or not. And yes, that visible IP address is a nice touch. :)
    That could be an issue with Google Font APIs. Developers are beginning to use more exotic fonts on their sites, and if for some reason the API doesn't work, it defaults to whatever CSS Font Family Property is specified in the code.

    I suspected something similar, I keep forgetting that there is a tweak in Chrome for this.

    Web developers would be only too delighted.... The problem is, people who pay the bills want to accommodate grotty old browsers people (and particularly public services) still use, which makes the development experience truly horrible and unproductive. I think the tipping point is close though. The other side being the whole DRM and streaming protection stuff, which is pretty much still Flash or Silverlight.

    The new version is based on Chromium v45 so lots of open vulnerabilities and on top of that the sandbox is not enabled/implemented.
