Time for a new Midori release. There are probably not as many visible changes as with the previous release, but one thing that is a major selling point for some users, is single instance support. Provided you have libUnique which is based on dBus, subsequent calls of “midori” will call the original instance instead of spawning independant processes. More importantly “midori http://www.twotoasts.de” will open a website in a new tab. Incidentally instances are per display, so you can still run Midori on different X servers. (Note that multiple instances will still overwrite each other’s config files, though).
Support for userscripts is being improved with time, for example Midori started to read the names of scripts and show them in the panel and the list is updated if you add new files to the folder. Also userstyles are supported now, they go in ~/.local/share/midori/styles, similar to scripts.
Oh, and curiously, we have an Extension icon now. The actual extension support is still incomplete but it’s a start. Apart from that I actually made an effort to have *some* stock icon for any possibly missing icon in the interface except for the throbber. That still means you should have an XDG compliant theme but you won’t see only broken images if icons are missing.
So much for that, it’s nice to see Midori coming along well. There seem to be users on more platforms than I can even claim to have seen myself by now. Midori fans use Linux, BSD, Gnome, KDE, Xfce, Openbox, MacOS, Windows, E-Ink, Maemo, … there may be more. I am happy to observe how portability can actually work and not only serve as a marketing term.
