Average-looking and clean interface
The setup is pretty straightforward as it entails following a step by step wizard without having to do any configuration. Upon launch, you come face to face with a minimal and barebones interface that could seem slightly counterintuitive for beginners.
You should know that the app comes with a streamlined interface that is designed to put an emphasis on the websites, not on the menus and function of the browser. Moreover, the application’s default homepage is set to duckduckgo.com, a platform not everyone might be familiar with. All in all, the program looks and feels as designed for advanced users.
You need to learn the default bindings first
It is necessary to mention that you are required to use specific commands in order to open tabs, visit pages, download, bookmark pages, so on and so forth. Unfortunately, the program comes with its own set of commands and it might take some time before you get familiarized with them.
While it looks familiar at first sight, users with less experience can soon discover that the app does not work in the same manner as the popular browsers they got accustomed to by now. In addition, you can use the command to activate the hint in the background (;b), so you can at least know how to start typing a particular command.
A keyboard-focused browser that can save time
In the eventuality that you are familiar with the CommandLine in Windows and you enjoy managing your files and folders in this manner, then perhaps qutebrowser could be a browser you would enjoy and that can help you speed things up.
