Simple PyQt4 Web browser
Ryouko is a handy tool that can help you navigate to your favorite web pages. Just type the address of the page you want to explore.
- Proxy support.
- Can use Dropbox or Ubuntu One to store settings and data as of 0.10.0, allowing you to access your data from anywhere.
- Multiple profile folders can be managed from the GUI as of 0.10.0.
- Can print the current page as of 0.8.0.
- Can save the current page as of 0.8.0.
- Able to record browsing history. Unfortunately, clearing the history may not work 100% correctly.
- Partially-centralized notification system for somewhat reduced disturbance as of 0.7.0.
- Bookmarks manager as of 0.7.0.
- Allows you to close all the tabs to the left or right of the current tab as of 0.7.0.
- Experimental ad-blocking support as of 0.6.2 (enable it by going into the Preferences dialog!)
- Basic XSPF playlist support as of 0.6.2. This feature has since been removed.
- Custom search expressions as of 0.6.2.
- Web inspector support as of 0.6.2 (analogous to Firefox's Firebug tool)
- Location bar auto-complete-as-you-type.
- Stores cookies between sessions, and also allows the cookies to be cleared out. When clearing out the cookies on Linux, Ryouko performs a "shred -v" operation on the database for added privacy.
- Supports private browsing mode as of 0.4.4.
- Has a Find function as of 0.4.6.
- Supports opening new windows as of 0.4.6.
- Zoom in/out functionality as of 0.4.10.
- Status messages as of 0.4.8
- Has tabbed browsing, like any respectable modern Web browser.
- Supports command-line arguments. This means that it's actually possible to use it as your default Web browser! (But of course, it isn't recommended.)
- Unlike some browsers in the same vein, Ryouko understands page requests that ask to open links in new windows. In 0.5.0 and below, it opens them in new windows with reduced-functionality, but as of 0.5.1, it opens them in new tabs.
- Unlike some other amateur projects on SourceForge, Ryouko's Git repository actually has commits in it.
- The "Save Link..." option in the context menu actually works. As of 0.7.0, it should work 100% of the time.
- If faced with an unsupported file type, Ryouko will offer to download the offending file to your computer.
