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 is a relatively new WebKit-based web browser written in Qt, which makes it perfect for KDE users. 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.
