Dooble Web Browser 2020.07.07 Is Released
The mysterious developer "textfield" has released a new version the Dooble web browser which is desribed in the bundled README.md as a "weather bug browser". The Dooble browser uses the mature Qt5 webview module to render web pages. It supports tabs and most other features you would expect from a simpler modern web browser. The latest release adds HiDPI and Qt 5.15 support.

- Native Qt HMAC.
- dooble_settings::setting() may not return the provided default value if a database-access error occurs. Corrected.
It also mentions that you may want to:
- Please remove dooble_settings.db if Dooble does not launch correctly. Qt 5.15.0 LTS.
The new version installs to
/opt/ instead of
/usr/local if you install using the Debian .deb package available at SourceForge. There is also some kind of
.dmg file which may or may not be for macOS available there. Those using other GNU/Linux distributions or other operating systems like FreeBSD will have to compile it and figure out how to install it on their own. Fedora users can use these instructions for Fedora. Dooble has a GitHub page with source code.
