– A separate check-box can be used to include or not the operations within a profile
– You can save your preferences in a .profile file and load it whenever needed
– Scheduling for execution of already created profiles via cronjobs is supported

Falkon – a KDE web browser using QtWebEngine rendering engine, previously known as QupZilla. It aims to be a lightweight web browser available through all major platforms. This project has been originally started only for educational purposes. But from its start, Falkon has grown into a feature-rich browser.

Falkon has all standard functions you expect from a web browser. It includes bookmarks, history (both also in sidebar) and tabs.

Falkon uses the Qt cross-platform application framework and offers a built-in AdBlock. By default this adblocker whitelists the web page of Falkon’s main search engine, DuckDuckGo.

Until version 2.0, QupZilla was using QtWebKit. QtWebKit is now deprecated and new versions are using QtWebEngine.
