  • Unlike some browsers in the same vein, Ryouko understands page requests that ask to open links in new windows. In 0.5.0 and below, it opens them in new windows with reduced-functionality, but as of 0.5.1, it opens them in new tabs.
  • Unlike some other amateur projects on SourceForge, Ryouko's Git repository actually has commits in it.
  • The "Save Link..." option in the context menu actually works. As of 0.7.0, it should work 100% of the time.
  • If faced with an unsupported file type, Ryouko will offer to download the offending file to your computer.
  • Of course, it's 100% free and open-source software. Who wouldn't want that? =)
