Hi everyone! it’s been a while since I’ve been active on the forum as I had a serious non-covid health issue last year. I’d been looking for a lightweight browser that might work on Haiku and I discovered Quartz Browser.
Quartz is currently under active development, very small, and you build it using python. it’s quick and displays web pages well. I have not looked into creating a receipe for it.
Hey, it looks like this is another qtwebkit browser, you can certainly make a port for it if you wish.
How did you get it to work under haiku? i tried and it didn’t work, i mean it doesn’t work out of the box?
Hi khallebal! I installed python3.8 along with pyqt5_38, pyqt5_sip_python38, pip_python38 as the major python pkgs. I then downloaded the source to my home directory, extracted it there and ran the following:
→ pip3.8 install /boot/home/quartz-browser-qt5-2.3.7
This would install the executable in the following location:
I did do a quick creation of a hpkg for x86_64 using hpkg creator. I still need to create a proper recipe.
It uses the same at website engine as otter/etc.

Thanks, i got it to work, did it render this forum for you? for me it doesn’t load the page after
WebPositive is the only WebKit based browser on Haiku, the others uses QtWebKit, which is semi-deprecated.
I have no problems acessing the forums with safari
@extrowerk Thanks for clarifying qtwwebkit for me. I sent that message from my cell phone, and auto-correct kicked in and it got changed to webkit. The good news is, I was able to access the forum using the dolphin browser on my phone.
