  • Toggle darkmode in Qutebrowser?
    See also https://github.com/qutebrowser/qutebrowser/issues/5542
  • [Question] How to get the URL of the "current page" in hints mode
    This isn't possible at the moment, see Expose some more variables to userscripts · Issue #937 · qutebrowser/qutebrowser. Should be a good first issue if you feel like writing a bit of Python and opening a PR, though!
  • How can i go back in a restored session?
    Relevant issue: Qt 5.15: Incomplete support for sessions · Issue #5359 · qutebrowser/qutebrowser
  • https://np.reddit.com/r/qutebrowser/comments/nubi3n/how_to_yank_last_part_from_url/h15vnwm/
    There's :yank inline {url:path}, but nothing to only get the last part of the path. You could however easily write a userscript in a language of your choice to do so.
  • "Scriptable tabs"?
    This is an example of something which is probably too advanced for a userscript (or perhaps parts of it can be done, but would be rather hacky).
  • Audio in tab bar
    I'd prefer using jinja (a template framework already used in qutebrowser itself) so that users can define their own ways of handling this: Switch to jinja for tab titles · Issue #1578 · qutebrowser/qutebrowser.
  • Uppercase hints equal to new tab?
    This isn't possible right now. Relevant issue touching on this as well: Filter hints with upper-case text · Issue #577 · qutebrowser/qutebrowser
  • Qutebrowser adblocker doesn't block youtube ads anymore?
    See adblock: Support cosmetic filtering (element hiding) and scriptlets · Issue #6480 · qutebrowser/qutebrowser
  • Unable to load page
    Thanks. Works fine here, I opened an issue to check if someone else can reproduce maybe: Renderer process crash on www.aftenbladet.no with Linux Mint · Issue #6519 · qutebrowser/qutebrowser
  • Focus tab to the left (instead of the one the right), when closing tab
    Glad to hear! I'd still like qutebrowser's behavior to be a bit more clever there though, so I opened an issue: Better default for tabs.select_on_remove · Issue #6517 · qutebrowser/qutebrowser
  • Browser crashes loading websites.
    No worries! I added some details to the issue and will see if I can reproduce it by doing the same.
  • A quicker way to reach localhost with qutebrowser
    Would you mind opening a pull request to the list of userscripts to add your userscripts there? You can even do so right from GitHub's web interface.
  • How to Add Domain Specific Settings (CSS) into `config.py`? Is it possible?
    In general, yes, see the documentation. However, content.user_stylesheets isn't a per-domain setting. There's an old PR trying to make it one, but it has some issues and I haven't gotten around to picking it up yet.
  • qutebrowser v2.2.3 released
    See adblock: Support cosmetic filtering (element hiding) and scriptlets · Issue #6480 · qutebrowser/qutebrowser.
  • .tex file for the keybindings cheat sheet
    What makes you think that it's a LaTeX thing? It was made by hand in Inkscape, so the SVG is all there is.
