Cookies, completion enhancements, clearing data

So this release of Midori took a bit longer to ripe but it was hopefully worth it. If that says anything, the manual ChangeLog is by far the longest since the first version. There were lots of bug fixes, memory leak fixes and performance improvements all around, which I won’t bore you with here. Among the highlights are the new Cookie Manager extension, support for –app and –config arguments on the command line, search engines in the context menu and address completion (optionally). There is experimental support for detaching panels from the window (try it out and make noise if you are interested), support for Gtk 2.16 entry progress and icon which is means better theming. The news feed icon is back and can open your favourite news aggregator, it was broken for a while now. External download managers are also supported again. There is a Clear private data now in the Tools menu – including Flash cookies.

    Midori is on the good way : fast , simple , lightweight and scriptable.

    It keep crashing sometime but i use it as my principal browser now.
    I’ve find the higher tab a good choice since i’m using Lucid Gtk theme : very nice.

    For people interresting on a Flashblocker for Midori , a guy made this one which work great :

    Just one last thing : when using Usercripts/CSS , the page load the content and apply the changes after > a good thing would be to force usage of Usercripts/CSS before the page load the content.

    Hope you understand me , english is not my native language …

    I really LOVE Midori except for the fact that there aren’t any keyboard shortcuts for switching tabs. Could you please implement direct switching with Alt-1, Alt-2, Alt-3 etc..? And while you’re at it I’d like Alt-D to do the same as Ctrl-L (select the address).

    The best browser out there! Had to install it on my computer at the office cause I missed it so much :)

    Seriously, is it that much of a burden? In Ubuntu/Debian, a suitable version of GTK is installed by default, likewise probably Fedora and all of those other release-based distros. Let’s not forget about rolling release systems!

    Nice. Much more stable, although it still segfaulted yesterday when I wanted to make a comment here about how stable it is. In the peacekeeper js benchmark it got the highest score by far (982), and second was ffox 3.5b4 (644).

    Don’t really know what features to request besides better stability.

    Will you bring back a button to navigate up one level like in epiphany?

    This is surely needed.
    Firefox refuses to add one, but it’s a really cool feature. Maybe you can use the neodiggler extension for firefox as a basis.

    Eh, I like the fact that it makes the highlighted tab higher. With the theme I’m using, the space under the tab bar separator isn’t even noticable.

    Thanks for all the hard work. I am really loving Midori.

    Could you please add a setting to get nice little tabs back?

    Why does the active tab needs to be HIGHER?

    It doesn’t so in Safari for example, it’s just a little bit more colorful than the others..

    Why waste 2 or 3px over 200px (or how wide is ONE tab?) when there ist abou 1700px*3px not used at all (on my screen).

    Visually indicating the active tab by color makes more sense imho, in all apps.

    But surely this should go to the theme-artist, shouldn’t it?

    The current height is actually the default. For a while now Midori applied a hack to decrease the height, however that meant the active tab couldn’t stand out visually anymore. Notice that with the “bigger” version the active tab is raised over the other tabs.

    If you need smaller tabs, either look for a different Gtk theme or disable the close buttons.

  11. monna

    Wow, that Tab-border on the bottom is really annoying.

    And were the tabs thinner before?

    Besides, Midori is great. Bloody fast, even with lots of open tabs.

    I had compiled midori from code in git repository, and upon recent compiles webKit ( from svn). I liked browser. But I have a question – how to enable database client storage, openDatabase from javascript for midori? Is it possible to add setting in ~/.config/midori/config for this? When I load examples from
    WebKitSite/misc, DatabaseExample.html, DatabaseTester.html
    http://webkit.org/misc/DatabaseExample.html
    they fail, openDatabase returns null. What is the reason? Code in WebKit enables client storage; juniper browser, if not crashes at start, seem to work well with openDatabase.

    Please, tell, how to add configuration to enable this feature, if that is possible.

    Oh, if my email doesn’t work, I accidentally added .ca to my email instead of .com. (I have a tendency to do that)

    Yey, gmail renders properly now! :D Midori now behaves more smoothly now. :] Thanks for all your work. (midori=my favourite browser now. I don’t even have firefox installed :P )

    I also somewhat agree with commenter #2. Another thing I’d like to see is some sort of session exporter/importer. (I think copying/pasting session.xbel would work but I don’t want to dare at the moment. :P )

    I’d like to see vanish the 1px horizontal separator before tab panel and reduce tab panel of 1 px, like previous versions.
    Now Midori seems fat.
