  • does the brave adblocking support cosmetic filtering?
    That indeed isn't implemented yet.
  • readability script not working
    In general I'd recommend using the readability-js userscript instead. It uses the same library Firefox uses for its reader mode, which works much better than those Python libraries.
  • Using a url for searching websites
    Sure, by adding it to url.searchengines:
  • Why the hell does qutebrowser use 1gig with one tab open?
    Also note there are other alternatives like vimb or luakit which are probably somewhere between qutebrowser and surf, minimalism-wise.
    Something is leaking memory, and it's unlikely to be qutebrowser itself to blame - also see this comment for details. Not much we can do until someone finds out what's actually to blame.
  • Search from top of visible page
    JS implementation for :search / find in page? · Issue #5652 · qutebrowser/qutebrowser
  • Develop plug-in for qutebrowser
    Not in the general sense, see: Extension (plugin) support · Issue #30 · qutebrowser/qutebrowser
    Yes and no. For more advanced stuff you will need the Python extension API which isn't ready yet, but there's a lot you can do from userscripts. You can send commands and then e.g. look at updated session files coming from qutebrowser.

    Ideally it'd also be throttled a bit so it updates with a delay of a second or so. I opened an issue: Throttle/debounce/delay audible status ([A]) in tabs · Issue #6168 · qutebrowser/qutebrowser

    It'd be nice to have something built in into qutebrowser to inspect sessions and load parts of them, though. I opened an issue: Improved commands to inspect sessions · Issue #6167 · qutebrowser/qutebrowser
