This is my first how to guide, so bare with me a little bit.

Midori (緑?, Japanese for green) is a web browser that aims to be lightweight and fast. It uses the WebKit rendering engine and the GTK+*2 interface. Midori is part of the Xfce desktop environment's Goodies component. As of February 2009, the project is still at alpha status.
Should I use Midori?
Currently, as of version 0.1.7, Midori is still quite buggy. If you don't mind a browser that might crash every once in awhile, and want to try out something new, then go for it. I recommend that you still keep firefox installed, or whatever you are using as your primary browser, just incase you come across something that doesn't quite work as it should.
First, you must add two PPA's to your sources.list
Add these lines to the bottom of the file, then save and close it.
sudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list
Now you must add the keys to access the new PPA's.
deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/webkit-team/ppa/ubuntu jaunty main
deb-src http://ppa.launchpad.net/webkit-team/ppa/ubuntu jaunty main
deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/midori/ppa/ubuntu jaunty main
deb-src http://ppa.launchpad.net/midori/ppa/ubuntu jaunty main
Now update your repositories.
sudo apt-key adv --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com --recv-keys 2D9A3C5B
sudo apt-key adv --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com --recv-keys A69241F1
And install Midori.
sudo apt-get update
All the dependencies should be installed and you will have the latest version installed, if for some reason it doesn't just let me know and I'll try my best to figure out what happened.
sudo apt-get install midori
You can install flash as your normally would with any other browser, if you haven't installed it already, you can do so with this command:
sudo apt-get install flashplugin-nonfree
