    No, really, it is my main browser for important stuff and most communities - however for recreational surfing I use chromium. So it is about a 60/40 split between them.

    Funnily enough, chromium crashes on me roughly every third to fifth day (every day without adblock) while otter tends to stay up for months.

    How is Otter coming along? I have not gotten around to installing Qt5 on any of my machines, so I have not been following its development. More viable than Opera 12 these days, I am sure, but any comments on how far along it is?

      (I really wish I could find the magical settings to get notifications when ACs reply)

      Excepting that it has the annoying 100% cpu bug when hitting a CSS-looped-animation (most engines had this at some point, usually solved by throttling the framerate after giving up on making webdesigners actually test their sites in standard-conforming browsers) and that I don't use plugins I honestly havn't noticed anything jarring except for that I had to rebuild the language-files to get hotkeys working for menus and that it doesn't differentiate between forms and the rest of the page when using tab/3 (so, it is as bad as non-O12-browsers for keyboard navigation).

      Since they do have an appimage (and should have resolved the ssl-issue by now) do give it a spin.
