QtWeb Portable is a modern Internet Browser that stands out through its light weight, speed and enhanced security, appropriate for any computer due to a low dependency level.
Similar to Chrome and Safari, QtWeb Portable is built upon the Qt Framework, which means performance at the cost of little or no requirements. It is an open source project, fit for use inside homes, as well as organizations.
QtWeb Portable is a replica of QtWeb (installer edition), sporting the same feature set with the difference that the portable version is less invasive and can be carried around on a removable drive and launched on any machine.
As any other respectable browser, QtWeb Portable sports a set of basic browsing functions common to most navigators, on top of which a unique architecture is built.
Therefore, you will be experimenting with a multi-tabbed environment, in which you can manage your browsing history, handle bookmarks and search the web. Other highlights include an option to render compatibility with other browsers, a virtual keyboard, a web inspector and extensive support for text encoding.
Further settings related to cookies and web content are made available inside the Settings window, where you can also make contact with the built-in ad blocker that shields you from annoying advertisements.
Overall, we enjoyed our experience with QtWeb Portable. It is a compact and reliable browser that makes use of very little resources during its runtime. Although it scored only half of Chrome’s rating on the HTML5 test, you can still rely on it for common web tasks.
