    It was very buggy on my system. I'll stick with Kazehakase and Opera.

    The one that came with Hardy, 0.017 didn't work with gmail so I gave it the flick.

    You can't also set the number of lines scrolled my the mousewheel, this is what makes Gecko browsers kick Webkit ones in Gnome.

    Guys, it's like pre-alpha release, so don't bash it for stability.

    I wat to use it as a secondary browser for a change of scenary with a little extra speed, but it crashes on sites with heavy flash use. For example, try going to youtube.

    Then why should someone install it if something always crashes?

    Upgrading Glib 2.16 from the Hardy repos to version 2.18 from the Intrepid repo fixes the crashing. See http://wiki.xfce.org/midori_faq

    I's a quite basic browser but it has some nice features, such as keyword searches using the urlbar, custom scripts and stylesheets, Webkit rendering engine, and it's lightweight. The Xorg memory ballooning Firefox causes, and the frequent crashing of Firefox made me look for alternatives and I like Midori, even though I miss some of the extensions and tricks that I got used to.

    You can export firefox bookmarks to xbel format which Midori uses with the syncplaces Firefox extension.

    Still this is indeed 'alpha' software, so it means it has missing features and rough edges. But it's starting to get usable.

    I'm amazed. On my system, I find that opera fairly flies and renders beautifully, as does firefox - though firefox has a lead with it's extras and sheer power.

    Midori is very light, and thus would feel very fast - if it did not disappear in a puff of smoke whenever I load a second tab. Also I find the rendering of the webkit browser lags far behind that of firefox and opera.

    Epiphany is a worthy smaller brother to these two magnificent browsers, but Midori being in it's 0.0.21 early stages still requires a lot of work.

    It looks extremely promising, but is yet to prove stable on my gnome setup.
