Save your cookies for later

Time for an update after another too long release cycle. Let’s see what
we should highlight of the changes…
Bookmarklets work now, that is you can use javascript: in bookmarks and
the address entry. New windows opened from web pages actually are opened
finally, in the form of new tabs, cookies can be stored on disk if you
are using a recent libsoup with WebKit and Midori.
And hey, changes to preferences or bookmarks are saved dynamically as
they are changed by you – regardless of crashes your configuration is
kept. Which brings me to the also new (optional) crash dialog that now
pops up if Midori crashed and you reopen it. It allows you to modify
preferences or discard your last open pages, which is useful if for
instance a script crashed and disabling scripts may prevent Midori from
going down again right after having started.
Last but not least, starting up Midori with a long history is much, much
faster now. There is still a delay but it’s comparatively small.

So [http://goodies.xfce.org/releases/midori/midori-0.1.2.tar.bz2 download midori v0.1.2] already!

    Just thought to mention that at least for me the focus traversal goes from address field to the tabs, when i’d think it would be intuitive for it to go to the search field. I don’t seem to be able to reach the search field no matter how many times i hit TAB, so it looks like it’s completely out of the focus traversal cycle.

    I have no clue if this is a common thing or just something with my setup, but just thought to point it out as the search field is the most used part of any browser for me and many others.

    Nice browser guys, i really look forward to dumping firefox for this.

    This browser is great. Too long have I waited for Firefox to open a page or recover from a crash in Ubuntu. Pretty close to making this my default browser…still have the occasional problem with blocked popup windows. How can I resolve that?

    Keep up the good work!

    Thanks so much! webkit has so much power builtin and a linux build has been lacking. Tabs seems find to me. But gmail will ravage the browser into a crash.

    I use Midori 0.1.2, libsoup-2.24.2.1 and WebKit-1.0.0-0.16 (svn rev 39370), but my cookies lost every time I’m closing Midori. Do I need newer libsoup or WebKit?

    Works for me (Intrepid 64bit)

  7. sr

    Awesome! Looks like I’ll finally be able to switch to Midori for real (and god know I want it)

    which version exactly?

    Nice, I guess the one thing I’d like to see is download support (there’s an option in right click menu to save link as, but it doesn’t work, and I can’t find any code for it…)
