First binaries are ready, QtWebEngine builds for Windows and legacy QtWebKit build for Windows XP.
We will need to wait a bit longer for QtWebKit TP4 binaries for Windows.
In the meantime I'll try to produce appimage for Linux.

Thank you very much, I highly appreciate all your efforts to create a flexible, powerful and trustworthy browser.
I couldn't find some builds- installers plus win32 archives. Are they published or I am missing something? I sought here.

@smaragdus, we are still waiting for updated 32 bit version of QtWebKit TP4 (current has issues with displaying JPEG images), only legacy version is available for now (otter-browser-win32-beta11-xp.zip), but it doesn't have an installer.

Good day!

Please help me to resolve this trouble:
i have installed the Otter 0.9.04 beta 4 on Xubuntu 14.04,
all OK, very fast etc, BUT don't understand yet
why does not work the Password Manager?
It is in "Security" menu but "Remember passwords" and "Use a master password"
options are locked.
As i understand they are disabled by default but how to do them active?

Thanks in advance,
waiting for you assistance,

best regards,
Askar.

@foras77, you need to update to at least this version to get it, beta 4 is extremely outdated.
