you're not familiar with it, it is essentially a free version of google
chrome that recently made it's way into fedora package repositories.
Advantages and features include:
* based on same rendering engine as qtwebengine (that qupzilla uses)
* has active, well-supported upstream
* some kde integration: kde file dialogs, kwallet for secrets
* supports most chrome addons/extensions
* pretty new to fedora (only a few weeks)
* packaging/buildsystem is... messy and fragile (not unique here,
qtwebengine suffers similarly but less so)
* not 100% native (like qupzilla)
My biggest concern among all the choices is the multimedia support.
Fedora cannot ship a full-featured codec stack in any of its spins due
to various legal issues. How do the browsers compare for the Fedora
user who wants to get more codec support himself?
