Kazehakase (Japanese: Dr. Wind (風博士, kaze hakase)) was a web browser for Unix-like operating systems that uses the GTK+ libraries. Kazehakase embeds the Gecko layout engine as well as GTK+ WebKit.

The browser is named after the short story "Kazehakase" by the Japanese author Ango Sakaguchi; its literal meaning is "Dr. Wind" (a PhD rather than a medical doctor).


Notable features include:

  • Support for RSS as well as its Japanese variants LIRS and HINA-DI[1]
  • Drag-and-drop of browser tabs
  • Mouse gestures
  • Import of bookmarks from Mozilla Firefox, Mozilla Application Suite, Netscape Browser, Galeon, Konqueror, and w3m; shared bookmarks (with XBEL)
  • "Smart Bookmarks" programmable with regular expressions
  • Full text search in browser history
