Thousand and one bug fixes

Thousand and one bug fixes, that’s what this release turned out to be. A
long run of tweaks in various places rather than short and explosive.
Kudos to PaweĊ‚ for his great work, notably with bookmark import and
export, including Netscape HTML import, and a new infobar prompting to
install userscripts and -styles if the User Addons extension is
activated.

A rather big move is Launchpad as the new bug tracker. I have tested it
and am convinced of the superiour usability over FlySpray and Bugzilla.
And this addresses the frequently raised concern of using a unique bug
tracker, so it should be easier to report bugs with an existing account
and a familiar interface. The old bug tracker still exists and will
remain in place for a while, but new bugs should be reported at
Launchpad. The code repository and translations remain with Xfce and
Midori is still fully usable and supported on it, and dozens of other
platforms. Kudos to Dan and Michael for moving over a huge number of bug
reports.

The new default search engine is DuckDuckGo, https://www.duckduckgo.com
a slick and powerful engine with a string focus on data privacy and no
logging whatsoever. Midori uses the SSL version out of the box.
This change is not automatic for existing configurations, and Google as
well as Yahoo remain available from the menu and as tokens ‘g’ and ‘y’
respectively.

Problems with ‘,’ and ‘.’ for link search and inline search with Russian
keyboard layouts have been fixed. Options for languages and panel layout
have been simplified. Netscape plugins no longer show up in the
Extensions panel due to repeated confusion with users. URIs keep spaces
encoded as %20 to allow copying to other applications. And context
menu-related problems have been fixed.

    This web browser actually runs my CSS and JavaScript code correctly (most other non-mainstream web browsers fail at this, some very miserably), and it’s fast. Nice work!

    I added a link to Midori on my web page in my short list of major web browsers:

    I will be using Midori as one of the web browsers I test my web site development work in from now on.

    P.S.: Could you add a page on your web site that re-directs as follows?

    is/are win builds to be no more? If so, please say so, so I can stop checking… also note that I had to use Firefox to post here, as Midori win build 2.6 crashed 4 times on the attempt

    I simply love this browser, I just think the only important thing missing is a password manager! Hope to see it in version 0.3.1 ! :-)

    Having spent 3 days with it I must say it’s perfectly stable.
    It rocks. Great improvement over 0.2.9.

    That’s right, scrolling a bit or scale the window shows the site correctly.
    Thank you for the tips anonymous. I’m happy now! ;)

    if you only see gray square try scrolling a bit to “tilt” the page. It works for me then. Sometimes i get it like that on youtube also. It’s a webkit bug. Epiphany also suffers from this on my machine.

    revast, I am not sure about the default settings, but when I go to Tools > Customize Toolbar I can just add the Sidepanel button if I want. You have to have the Toolbar Editor plugin enabled for this menu entry to be available though.

  8. patriki

    ok, it should be my configuration. Otherwise, I don’t have any problem with FF4 or chromium with this site.
    thanks.

  9. revast

    where is the sidebar button gone?
    after the address bar, there was a button to activate sidebar.
    how do I get it back?

    nevertheless, thanks for your hard work.

    Looks like broken package, not exactly Midori’s fault. Maybe notify maintainer of that ppa about this?

  11. gio1988

    why can’t I update it on my ubuntu lucid amd64 from the ppa?? :-( it gives me this error:
