qutebrowser is a web browser with vim-style key bindings based off the QtWebKit (or the QtWebEngine in its latest release). It is lightweight using a minimal GUI and is inspired by software such as Vimperator and dwb. It uses DuckDuckGo as the default search engine.

Qutebrowser was developed by Florian Bruhin, for which he received a CH Open Source award in 2016.
