5. Konqueror

Konqueror

The oldest of the bunch, has been around since 1996, its layout engine called KHTML served as the base technology for the popular and well known WebKit engine which is actually a fork of KHTML used by Safari (Apple) and also until recently Google Chrome.

Chrome now uses a layout engine called Blink which is forked off of WebKit hence consequently a fork of KHTML too.

What’s so unique about Konqueror is the fact that it can be more than just a web browser, it can also act as a file manager hence you can browse both your web and local files with the same app. cool

4. ‘Web’ Aka Epiphany

Web-3.12

The GNOME desktop environment default browser, relies on WebKit layout engine or better say WebKitGTK+ layout engine to be exact.

Web maintains a clean and simple graphical user interface with only a required minimum number of features exposed to users by default, thus adhering to GNOME’s HIG (Human Interface Guidelines) and minimalistic approach.

Web as you may note is making use of GNOME’s titlebar design called “Header Bar” by integrating the toolbar placement into it.
