Projects / Kazehakase


Kazehakase is a Web browser which aims to provide a user interface that is truly user-friendly and fully customizable. It supports tabbed browsing, a "remote bookmark" feature (through RSS) in a menu or sidebar, a variable UI to adapt to the user's skill level, and customizable mouse gestures and key accelerators.

            I acctually had adblock working with it... even documented on the wiki but since then I switched to bfilter since having each browser fend for itself is just lame...

            Really nice little browser!
            I wish there were more documentation, and compatibility with some addons, like adblock.

            Finally a truly light browser.

            Thank you very much

            Very nice, but frequently crashes on my system
            This is the most promising browser project I've encountered in a long time -- all the features you'd want but much faster than others (e.g., the beloved Firefox). However, on my system (Slackware 10.2, kernel 2.6.13), every Kazehakase session eventually ends with a brutal application crash. If anyone could help me troubleshoot this, I'd be grateful, as I'd truly like to be able to use Kazehakase as my main browser. Thanks!

            I like it!
            Thank you for your hard work!

            This is a very nice browser. It combines a lot of things that I like about other browsers all into one. I like the close buttons on the tabs and the mouse gestures like in Opera. I only used it a short while now, but I already think it's really cool!
