The first thing that come up on my mind when using this browser is the quick response of this app. QupZilla is really lightweight and fast. QupZilla just like other modern web browser has some important features such as private window (incognito window). With this feature, we can browse any website without having to worry about history and other information left on the web browser.

QupZilla also comes with standard features such as bookmark tool and history, default download manager, site info, adblock, cookies manager and web inspector. All those features did not make this web browser run slow. QupZilla is extremely fast!!.
