Why had I never heard of this browser? Webkit based...fast...light (~900kb .deb file), and seems to be perfectly stable to me.

So...what's the catch?

You can download it here (http://code.google.com/p/arora/downloads/list) [code.google.com], by the way, although a slightly older version is available in the repositories. I'm testing it out now. Looks pretty good, actually. I hadn't heard of it, either. Nice one.

Even an OSX and Windows version! Does it support adblock and spell check?


Oops Windows version -1

It's extensible, so I suspect such things as adblock and such are in the pipeline. I just ran a browser benchmark. Not quite as fast as Chromium, but much faster than Firefox.

No, I don't think so. Its features are few, but what it does it seems to do very well.

It has a "private browsing" feature which makes your browsing history and such not recorded at all. :D ;)
