Hello Linux Geeksters. As you may know, the Otter Browser is an open source browser, similar to the good old Opera 12 Browser, with a interface developed in Qt5 and WebKit.
The latest version available is Otter Browser Alpha 2, which has been recently released, coming with support for manual proxy configuration (PAC), a feature for creating keyboard shortcuts profiles, an enhanced search bar, better management for hte browser cache and a few other fixes. For more information, see the official changelog
