Dear unixmen readers,

In this tutorial I will show you how to install a  fast web browser that uses WebKit rendering engine in combination with various KDE technologies.

It is called renkoq  and is the default browser in Chakra and Kubuntu linux distributions.  This web browser comes fully loaded with many features such as adblock support, advanced tab handling,  web shortcuts support and many private and security features.

renkoq has a very simple and friendly user interface, it uses only one toolbar by default that consists of four navigation buttons: back, forward, home, reload/stop.

If you want to install  the renkoq browser in  your machine and give it a try, open a new terminal(CTRL+ALT+T) and  run the following commands.

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntuhandbook1/apps
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:kubuntu-ppa/backports
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install rekonq
