Database, delayed loading and dozens of shortcuts

Time for an exciting step ahead, databased backed bookmarks, which brings in completion of bookmarks in the location entry and search in the bookmark panel. On top of that we have dragging of bookmarks into and out of folders.

A new feature is Delayed Pages. If Midori crashes and you open it again, pages will be delayed/ suspended/ frozen and not fully opened until you reload them. This is handy if one website is problematic, so it won’t crash or freeze immediately again. Also it accelerates startup because not all pages are loaded into memory at once. The feature can also be enabled by default in Preferences > General > When Midori starts > Show last tabs without loading.

Fans of Speed Dial will like the option at the top of the Speed Dial for larger thumbnails. Also you can now have as many shortcuts as you like.

Also worth mentioning are some performance optimisations during page load as well as optimisations in adblock including compatibility improvements.

Two new extensions are shipped by default: ‘Minimize New Tabs’ and ‘Copy Addresses of Tabs’. Have a look in the Extensions panel and try them.

A little goodie that came in last minute is completion of multiple words, for example type “my cat” in the location, and it will match any visited pages or bookmarks with a name such as “my chubby cats” or “my box with cat toys”.
