Please don't introduce any new browsers that use QtWebkit into the archive.

QtWebkit receives no security support once it's branched from webkit trunk.
The current QtWebkit version in unstable hasn't picked up security fixes
for over 2 years.
Since Qt decided to switch to Blink it's probably going to get even worse.

The description "[...] to create a safe browsing environment" is almost
cynical in this regard.

Cheers,
Felix

What do you mean with safe? Is this browser going to have security
support?

[Message part 1 (text/plain, inline)]
Hello,

The browser runs by default with options that are usually found in other 
browsers "private mode"  and the user explicitly grants exceptions to 
retain data from various sites between launches.

Dooble is focused on privacy and security:
- it comes with a secure P2P email client and serverless messenger 
called Interface
- all settings (Internet browsing history, cookies, cache, bookmarks, 
favicons...) can be encrypted with a user defined passphrase, and user 
is encouraged to do so on start
- always HTTPS, do not track, hide referrer, suppress redirections and 
automatic cookies sweep can be selected in the settings
- search box in the toolbar includes alternative search engines like 
Blekko, YaCy and WolframAlpha

the description " Dooble, a light browser created in qt to create a safe 
browsing environment." can (should?) probably be replaced with " Dooble, 
a light browser created in qt focused on privacy and security".

Regards,

Maybe. I was mostly refering to the release notes that list only two
browsers with security support (iceweasel and chromium):

http://www.debian.org/releases/stable/amd64/release-notes/ch-information.en.html#browser-security

Would you expect dooble to make that list some time in the future?
