The Arora is a community of the Punjab region closely related to Khatri community.

Aroras were mainly concentrated in West Punjab (now Pakistan) along the banks of the Indus River and its tributaries; in the Malwa region in East Punjab (a part of India), although not greatly in what became the North-West Frontier Province from 1901; in Sindh (mainly as Sindhi Aroras but there were many Punjabi and Multani speaking Aroras as well); in Rajasthan (as Jodhpuri and Nagauri Aroras/Khatris); and in Gujarat. In post-independence and post-partition India, Aroras mainly reside in Punjab, Haryana, Himachal Pradesh, Delhi, Jammu, Rajasthan, Uttar Pradesh, Uttarakhand and Gujarat.

Arora (web browser)

Arora is a lightweight, cross-platform, free and open-source web browser developed by Benjamin C. Meyer. Arora is available for Linux, OS X, Windows, FreeBSD, OS/2, Haiku, and any other operating system supported by the Qt toolkit. Arora's name is a palindrome.

The browser's features include tabbed browsing, bookmarks, browsing history, smart location bar, OpenSearch, session management, privacy mode, a download manager, WebInspector, and AdBlock.

For several months, Meyer discontinued development of Arora due to uncertainty about the strictures of non-compete clauses by his employer; finally in July 2011, he announced that he would no longer contribute to the project. Another software developer, Bastien Pederencino forked Arora's source code, and published a variant called zBrowser renamed Zeromus Browser in February 2013. In May 2013, Pederencino published another variant called BlueLightCat. In February 2014, some new patches were released on Arora's github project page, with some Linux distributions incorporating the changes in their individual versions of Arora packages in their repositories.
