Arora 0.10.0
Zoom Arora 0.10.0 on Windows 7.
The Arora developers have announced the release of version 0.10.0 of their lightweight, cross-platform, web browser. Arora uses the QtWebKit port of the WebKit layout engine and is intended to be compact, fast and full featured. The latest release of the browser includes a number of bug fixes, performance improvements and new features.

Arora 0.10.0 features the addition of AdBlock to block unwanted online ads and now includes the ability to save passwords so that users don't have to re-type their information each time they log into a website. The directory listing feature included in the previous release now has the ability to hide and show hidden files when viewing a directory and several keyboard short cuts have also been added.

More details about the release can be found in the change log. Arora 0.10.0 is available to download for Linux and Windows. The Mac OS X version is a little delayed but should be available by the 3rd of October, if not earlier. Arora source is hosted on GitHub and is released under version 2 of the GNU General Public License (GPLv2).
