Google When Google released its Chrome web browser for Windows, Linux and Mac OS X users were left out in the rain, without the ability to enjoy all the goodness that is Chrome. Thanks to the relentless porting efforts of the Chromium team, we now have daily builds of the Chrome/Chromium web browser, and I decided to take a look where the Linux version stands.

You are right. It says nothing about KDE in the About box, It is just a Qt app.
Strange - it was set up as a default browser at some point in one of Kubuntu Karmic's KDE 4 betas...
My bad, sorry guys/gals for this misinformation.

Arora was the default browser for Kubuntu Karmic Alpha 3.

Ubuntu Karmic Alpha 4 has just appeared on Distrowatch, but not Kubuntu as yet. When it does I will download the .iso and let people know if Arora is still the default browser.

It is a reasonable choice. Konqueror is gettting left behind by stubbornly clinging to KHTML, although Konqueror does still have an adblock-style mechanism that Arora (or Chrome for that matter) still lacks.

Apparently, KHTML is an integral part of KDE and cannot be removed without substantially damaging the user experience.
