How to install Falkon Web Browser in Ubuntu 18.04

In this article, we are going to learn How to install Falkon Web Browser in Ubuntu 18.04. Falkon is a free and open source web browser in the past. It’s built on the QT web engine, which is the cover of the Chromium browser core. The Falcon provides many icon sets and other elements to match the user’s desktop operating system’s native look and feel. Some of the additional features of the browser include a collection of history, web feeds and bookmarks at one place, the ability to take full screens screenshots and “speed dial” home-like operas. Lower system resources are used for larger general purposes such as Firefox and Google Chrome. The Falcon QT uses cross-platform application frameworks and offers built-in adblock. By default, this adblock has been whitelisted by Falcon’s main search engine, DuckDuckGo. There is a “portable” (not installed) version for the Windows platform. Falcon is delivered in portable apps.
