QupZilla makes use of WebKit to support modern web standards.[1] Additional effort was put into seamless integration of the browser with the native look and feel of users' desktops.[2] Some additional features of the browser include the integration of history, web feeds and bookmarks in a single location, the ability to take a screenshot of the entire page, and Opera-like "Speed dial" home page.[3] It is reported to consume fewer system resources than the major general purpose browsers like Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome.[4]

The project was started as a research project in 2010. The first preview release, written in Python (using PyQt library), was ready by December 2010.[5] In 2011 the source code was rewritten in C++ with a goal to create a general purpose portable web browser, with the initial target at seamless integration with Microsoft Windows' and Linux desktop environments' look and feel.[6]
