A session manager is finally coming to QupZilla, the Qt-based web-browser.

A long-held want by many — a bug requesting the feature was first opened in 2013 — the new Qupzilla session manager lets you create, delete, rename, and switch between multiple browser sessions.

Perfect for times when you want to save a set of open-tabs and windows, but don’t want to add clutter to your bookmarks.

Helpfully, QupZilla 2.3 will also make an automatic backup of your last browsing session so that you can quickly get back to where you were after an accidental quit.
