    Re: Midori Web Browser

    I have tried to like midori but its far too lacking and way too buggy, my biggest issue is bookamrks.

    No real bookmark management; even worse than chrome's [lack of] bookmark management. Import bookmarks doesnt work. period. It ONLY supports xbel which NO browsers use. I have used multiple methods to covert firefox's bookmarks to xbel but midori still wont import them (version in ubuntu repos says "malformed document", version from ppa just crashes)

    Thumbs down for me, a lot of work before it becomes usable. I also get rendering issues in a lot of sites.

    For me chrome is the best browser in linux (and I don't even like chrome that much, I definitely prefer opera 10.5 and firefox in windows but they both suck in linux IMO. Opera is incredibly ugly in gnome, and firefox is a slow pig compared to the windows version. It starts up at least twice as fast in windows for me and in gnome it takes up half the damn screen unless you hide the menubar and the bookmark toolbar)

    I am interested in using Midori for everyday use. (I would like to begin using FireFox for more sensitive things). This is the first time I have heard of Midori. How do you guys like it?

    One aspect that I like about Midori is that I perceive it to be fast.

    The down side for me is that when zooming the page, only the text (and not the images) zooms.

    And I don't particularly care about bookmark management for the moment. I use that in Firefox.

    Preferences -> Behaviour -> Zoom text and images

    Oh! Thank you Sertse. I never visited Midori's preference.

    Now I can zoom the images alongside the text.
    Why is it not the default settings?

    Well, now I will try to use Midri as default for a little while, and see how it works.

    Its now July 2010, and Midori has moved on a long way. I'm now on 0.2.2, running on Lucid Xubuntu, on an old Pentium III desktop that needs all the performance optimization it can get. I just found Midori by accident the other day, played with it out of curiosity and fell in love with it at first sight. It's now blazingly fast, clean and well designed and lots of nice little features like speed dial and search engine dialogue. I still keep Firefox and Epiphany enabled just in case, but Midori is definitely now my browser of choice and you can use Netscape plugins.

    One nice little tip in case anybody has the same problem. I also use Gmail, but Gmail doesnt recognize Midori, so it loads the basic html version that it uses for unrecognized browsers, and that is a very buggy experience (like it disables typing in some fields). You can get round this by telling Midori (in Edit/Preferences) to identify itself as Firefox and making sure that cookies and scripts are enabled. Gmail then obediently loads the full kit and caboodle.

    Best little browser in town, in my view.

    Re: Midori Web Browser

    ZOMG!!! I've been using this browser for a week now and it is THE BEST. super fast, hasn't got all that junk like all the other browsers.

    Just perfect. Set all the usual preferences I have (no menubar, open tabs without swithing focus to them...). If you type something in the address bar then you get the option to search google or wikipedia!! much more intuitive than chrome (in midori you just press down and enter when it pops up).

    Anyone know how to configure the toolbar? I want to remove the new tab button on the left, and the show sidepanel, google search and trashbin on the right.

    Really, WebKit is a great thing... Expect to see an explosion in features because the hard part of creating a browser (the html renderer) is done. Lots of browsers catering to everyone's different needs! that's the free software way

    Re: Midori Web Browser

    I have had midori sitting on my computer for awhile now. I like to have a second, or even third browser in case one goes buggy and I have to debug it. (I learned this the hard way, when firefox decided to open more than fifty help tabs every time I started it ) I hadn't really used Midori until I saw this thread. It runs fast for me, with no bugs to speak off. I don't know that I will ditch firefox, but I might play with Midori some more.
