FBrowser

QtWebKit-based web browser on Linux framebuffer.

Security Notes

This browser is not intended for visiting untrusted websites.

By default, OSBridge is enabled, which allows JavaScript to execute arbitrary code on the host system for accessing hardware resources and system services directly. This feature could be disabled in config.json.

Additionally, QtWebKit is based on an old WebKit revision with known unpatched security issues. In this case, it is strongly recommended to avoid using this browser with untrusted websites or transferring sensitive data.
