surf is a simple web browser based on WebKit/GTK. It is able to display websites and follow links. It supports the XEmbed protocol which makes it possible to embed it in another application. Furthermore, one can point surf to another URI by setting its XProperties.
Install the AUR package. Alternatively, there is the AUR package for the development version.
Optionally also install thepackage for URL-bar
surf is configured through its
config.h file. A sample
config.def.h file is included with the source and should be instructive.
Patches & additional features
There are many user-created patches available from the offical site that greatly extend the functionality of surf. Patches can be applied to both the source
surf.c file and the
$ cd src/surf-version/ $ patch -p1 < path/to/patch.diff
TheAUR program can be used with surf to create a simple tabbed browsing experience.
A basic set-up:
$ tabbed surf -e
Note that to achieve a similar effect to Firefox or Chromium where upon closing the last tab, the browser exits, use instead:
$ tabbed -c surf -e
