29 <title>Introduction to falkon</title>

31 <para>
32 <application>Falkon</application> is a KDE web browser using the QtWebEngine
33 rendering engine. It was previously known as <application>QupZilla</application>.
34 It aims to be a lightweight web browser available through all major platforms.
35 </para>
36
37 <para>
38 Although <application>falkon</application> is now part of KDE, it can be
39 installed without KDE (with the loss of <application>kwallet</application>
40 functionality).

45 Falkon relies on QtWebEngine. That uses a forked copy of chromium, and
46 is therefore vulnerable to many issues found there. The Qt developers
47 have always preferred to make releases at the same time as the rest of Qt
48 (rather than adding emergency fixes). Now that they are keen to move to
49 Qt6, the 5.15.3 and later Qt-5.15 releases are initially only available
50 to paying customers. QtWebEngine is something of an exception because of
51 its LGPL licence, but getting the git sources (with the forked chromium
52 submodule) to a point where they will successfully build on a current
53 BLFS system can take a lot of effort. Be aware that future fixes for
54 vulnerabilities might be very delayed, to the extent that you might wish
55 to consider using a different browser.

106 Strictly speaking, only karchive is required to build falkon,
107 but several other packages in KF5 can be used if they are present. To
108 build only karchive, download that package from the directory specified
109 in <xref linkend="kf5-frameworks"/> and use the build instructions on
110 that page changing the $KF5_PREFIX to /usr.
