Unfortunately, some researchers don’t understand the importance of making the code they use to reach their conclusions available. What’s worse, even if they do understand, the administrators at most universities do not, and the publishers of the all important scientific journals have no method in place for reviewing the code used in scientific research.

QupZilla looks just great, and it seems to be a perfect browser for those users who prefer a more different approach when it comes to the interface look and feel. QupZilla stands out with an interface that doesn’t resemble neither of the ‘modern’ ones like Firefox, Chrome or Opera, but rather keeps a classic look, which I believe may fit many users out there. So let’s see what this impressive browser is all about.
