This is a bugfix release, peppered with a few minor goodies as usual. There were issues with importing the older speed dial configuration at startup on some systems, and crashes when using the address completion. An issue with icon sizes in error pages as well as handling of https URLs in Adblock were also resolved.
Motivated by confusion of users of Adblock, URIs in Adblock, when adding bookmarks and when changing the homepage are now validated visually.
Backspace and F5 now serve as Back and Reload accordingly to cater for strong habits of some users and making the experience of casual users a bit smoother.
Now for the bonus, [https://secure.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/wiki/Geo_URI geo URI support], which is a fairly new standard for URIs such as
which you can open in Midori to have it show a map of the location as of now. This blog unfortunately doesn’t allow me to insert geo: links, so you have to copy the address to the location and hit Enter to open it. There used to be extensions to support this in Firefox and Chrome, both of which unfortunately haven’t been maintained recently. Midori can also serve as a system-wide handler of the geo: scheme on Unix systems (GLib >= 2.28).
As a reminder, the user agent strings changed with Midori 0.3.5 and if you used to pretend that you’re browsing with Safari or Firefox, try going back to identifying as Midori. Typical issues such as Facebook and other websites mistaking Midori for a mobile phone browser or Google hiding interface tweaks have been addressed with this change.
