#surf - simple webkit-based browser

builds.sr.ht status

surf is a simple Web browser based on WebKit/GTK+.


In order to build surf you need GTK+ and Webkit/GTK+ header files.

In order to use the functionality of the url-bar, also install dmenu[0].


Edit config.mk to match your local setup (surf is installed into the /usr/local namespace by default).

Afterwards enter the following command to build and install surf (if necessary as root):

make clean install

#Running surf

run surf [URI]

See the manpage for further options.

#Running surf in tabbed

For running surf in tabbed[1] there is a script included in the distribution, which is run like this:

surf-open.sh [URI]

Further invocations of the script will run surf with the specified URI in this instance of tabbed.
