Qutebrowser is a minimalist browser designed to be operated from the keyboard. It uses the same rendering libraries as Chrome, and can, therefore, handle any site that works in Chrome. Users of the Vimperator Firefox extension or the Vimium Chrome extension will find Qutebrowser's interface familiar. Unlike other more resource-demanding browsers, Qutebrowser does not provide a plugin system. Instead, it provides a userscript system (unrelated to javascript-based Greasemonkey/Tampermonkey scripts) that can execute scripts written in any scripting language (perl, python, ruby, etc), passing in information about the currently displayed page. Qutebrowser also includes a memory-efficient, host-based ad blocking system. To keep memory requirements low, the authors do not plan to add more complicated, Adblock-like rule-based blocking. Qutebrowser is available for Windows, macOS, and Linux.
