Install pyBrowser in Ubuntu 11.04 Natty Narwhal

pyBrowser is a simple web browser that's written in Python. It's written in C++ and the interface is from GTK+, so it integrates with Gnome quite well (as with KDE thanks to the Qt-GTK+ toolkit engine). Although it may not be as advanced as Chrome or Firefox, etc since it's a bit new... but the rest assured, it loads fast and uses very little of your system resources nonetheless.

So if your old Linux Laptop or PC kinda sucks with GNU/Linux these days because it seems that GNU/Linux ask for a bit more "resources" than it used to be... then pyBrowser will come in really handy. From support for Java script to flash video, this cute little browser supports a lot of major features any other web browser has but things like web page bookmarking, etc are still under development (but you can bookmark pages nonetheless) at the moment.

PyBrowser, according to sources is actually the only browser that supports the Ayatana Scrollbars in Natty as well. The history actually goes back few years into the past, so it's not that "new", but the original project seems to be frozen at the moment. So someone has decided to move it to launchpad. Anyhow, if you use Ubuntu 11.04 Natty Narwhal, then you can install pyBrowser by entering the below command.
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:mefrio-g/pybrowser-daily
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install pybrowser
