Kazehakase (Japanese: Dr. Wind (風博士, kaze hakase)) is a web browser for Unix-like operating systems that uses the GTK+ libraries. Kazehakase embeds the Gecko layout engine as well as GTK+ WebKit. However, the author also plans to add the ability to switch between additional different rendering engines (e.g. GtkHTML, Dillo, w3m).[1]

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).

Kazehakase is free software, available under the GNU General Public License. It has been available at repositories for Debian[2] and Ubuntu,[3] and has been ported to FreeBSD.[4]

Kazehakase seems to be no longer in active development since 2012.
