    I downloaded the official installer for Windows (at this time 0.5.7) and also tried the 7z version but none of them works on Windows 7. The browser crashes the first time it opens, no matter what i tried, i couldn’t make it work… I am waiting the next version, hope it will be repaired :(

    I will second the fact that Midori is a great browser for Linux, but just loading duckduckgo.com
    (which is the default search engine so its immediately loaded on start) totally WTF BBQs Midori on windows causing a total lockup until the process is killed.

    Linux should not be rated on how well it runs windows programs that is just a added bonus that sometimes works for big profile games, and almost always usually works for simpler programs you need like utilities or creative programs, I have tons of obscure utilities that I need for this and that, that wine runs perfectly.

    I play 3 high profile MMOs and wine runs one of those perfectly, the others are hit and miss and get broken on some patches and are working on others.

    Mainly I’m a classic gamer, which linux does perfectly for what I use (except that the big 3 SNES emulators have been doing terrible maintenance on their Linux ports lately), and I play some of the MMOs wine supports (though a couple it doesn’t), and my PC gaming outside of that is mainly Valve stuff that has been ported to Linux with steam, which I will probable
    stick to in the future, proprietary software installing “stuff” on my windows installation has
    been a serious issue for a decade.

    Wine running of Windows games on Linux is just a added bonus that could work, but should never be expected to, since they were never designed to do so, nothing like Wine will ever become entirely perfect.

    Linux has execellent driver support now execept the efficiency of the open source ATI driver
    is still weak on newer cards, if you’re card is old enough to have been end of lined by ATI
    so you’re forced into using legacy, the open source driver is better, the proprietary from AMD is fast and feature complete, I hear everything is even better for Nvidia users, and Intel.

    Linux has a few issues picking between cards that have normal jacks and a HDMI out that can usually be selected in you’re sound mixer in the system tray, and seems to want to occasional reset back to HDMI (which you might not be using) but besides that I haven’t found a single device not supported in Linux out of the box (almost all drivers Linux supports
    are shipped with the kernel so all drivers are “out of the box”).
    I find that you want to use a distro shipping a newer kernel though, using a old kernel
    on a newer rig and expecting it to work (debian), is a recipe to go straight to segfaulting.

    Linux still has a few occasional usability for users unfamiliar with it in keeping some of the lower system features out of the way that has usually been configured to already be that way on most desktop oriented distros, and still suffers from some probable over zealous permission issues on some of the lower subsystems, most of them are easily managed with a small amount of knowledge on Linux.

    IMHO a good desktop oriented distro using KDE as the desktop is the best usability right now
    in Linux.
    I like Manjaro (rolling) and OpenSUSE (non-rolling), but just remember to open up the control panel in SUSE and go to networking and switch it over to use the networking daemon when you first start it up on the Live CD.

    I guess I’m a GNU/Linux power user. I just about live on the web! I have ~1,500 Firefox bookmarks that are (as they need to be) organised into fairly strict order so that they are useful to my poor old (memory fading) mind.

    When Midori can import said bookmarks & maintain the order of topics & sub-topics – that will be the day that I will very happily become a dedicated Midori user.

    Keep up the great work.

    Tried installing Midori for Debian Wheezy 7.3 again today. Worked like a charm.

    If you don’t have the tool apt-add-repository and are running Debian stable (Wheezy) 7.x, just add:

    # midori sources
    deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/midori/ppa/ubuntu precise main
    deb-src http://ppa.launchpad.net/midori/ppa/ubuntu precise main

    to the file: /etc/apt/sources.list

    To add the repository key to your keyring:
    sudo apt-key adv –keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com –recv-keys A69241F1

    Now you can install midori-0.5.6 without problems, using

    sudo aptitude update && sudo aptitude install midori

    Keep up the great work!

    Midori is junk for Windows. It gets stuck upon the first launch trying to go to Duck Duck dot com. So I have no idea what midori does, or what it looks like. And isn’t Duck Duck dot com some kind of junk/spam toolbar site? It’s just crazy, i thought i might try out a linux browser to see if it would offer more stability and privacy than a Windows browser. Fix this thing, as I would like to see what it does on Windows. It seems to have a popular rating, yet freezes upon startup in Windows. Linux boasts much, but has yet to run any Windows program properly. And most of my games are Windows based. Linux is a pretty woman, but disfunctional.

      Please learn how to use both WINE and VirtualBox before making sweeping assumptions.

      My commercial clients can run pretty much any older Windows software they need without problems. (Except the latest cinematic action games, but you can run them in VirtualBox. Ever heard of ‘dual boot’.)

      Linux is not a dysfunctional pretty woman, but a ‘hot lady’ that is even good at housekeeping your computer system. The learning curve to get Linux running properly is nothing compared to the wasted effort, sweat and sorrow I have experienced in the Windoze world(tm).

      Dream on dude.

      Script kiddie comments aside, I have a problem installing Midori on current Debian stable (7.3 wheezy). I would like to offer Midori to my clients as their default browser, since Firefox is becoming a little heavy on some older PCs.

      The current Debian package for Midori (midori_0.5.6-1_i386.deb from the download page) has libwebkitgtk >= 1.9.90 as a built-in dependency.

      This website lists libwebkitgtk-1.8.1 as dep. Debian squeeze has libwebkitgtk-1.8.1-3.4

      Also, the download website for Debian mentions the infamous (python?) script ‘apt-add-repository’, which is in Ubuntu, but *not* in Debian (or is some unmentioned dependency missing?)

      Thanks for taking the time to create a great light-weight browser and contributing to the open software community. I hope you can spare a moment to give Debian users access to the great Midori webbrowser.

      Midori will not launch on Windows 7. Neither installed nor portable version. I am a regular Linux user and install it in every PC I use. But the programs I really need to run on Windows do not run under Wine. Thus I do need Windows and just wanted a lightweight, fast browser. I guess Midori is not the answer. Disappointed.

    auf der suche nach alternativen zu Firefox & Co. bin ich heute erstmals auf Ihr Midori-Projekt aufmerksam geworden. Leider gehöre ich zu einer Generation die nie die Möglichkeit hatte in der Schule eine Fremdsprache zu erlernen. (Dies hat sich erst nach meiner Schulentlassung alles geändert). Ich bin daher wie viele meiner Generation nicht in der Lage Ihre englischen Texte zu verstehen.

    Hi. I really love the effort to keep available this browser that is neat and clean. However, I find that Midori is often compatible with several Microsoft back-ended web sites and pages that have an interaction layer such as SSO (Single Sign On). Is there any documentation for Midori or WebKitGTK+ that describes how to get a WebKitGTK+ browser (like Midori) to properly interact with SSO and other Microsoft style web pages? Firefox seems to be able to handle these sites fine, but as we all know, Firefox has become rather bloated and overbearing these days. Thanks!

    May I suggest that you guys, both, look up EEL web browser and borrow what is needed to stabilize Midori.

    It uses a highly stable and an exceptionally fast Webkit engine, yet it lacks Midori’s features and looks, of-course.

    Midori is nice work. I’d set it as my default browser if I could turn off the speeddial feature. For me, they are a distraction even when functioning as intended and a needless complexity. I would prefer my homepage or barring that about:blank on new tabs. It’s so very close what I consider ideal that I felt compelled to chime in and ask that you consider again providing a method for users to toggle that feature.

    2. I don’t want XUL, but I love it’s “drag and drop”-behavior. Especially in conjuction with the Lesezeichen-Symboleiste. Neither Epiphany nor Midori allow me that.

    3. I don’t want XUL, but I’m used to the middle-mouse-button to scroll.

    I love Midori and use it every day. However, I need to restart it very often because I only have 768 MB RAM.

    It seems that Midori doesn’t release memory after downloading. This is particularly problematic when downloading large files.

    Test case:

    1. open Midori and check its memory usage using ‘ps’ or similar. All good.
    2. do nothing except download a DVD/CD image of your favourite Linux distro.
    3. note that the memory usage of Midori now includes the full size of the CD image downloaded (possibly 1 GB or more), and that the memory is never released until Midori is closed/killed.

    I don’t understand why the browser needs to allocate large chunks of memory for files it is downloading, nor why the memory can not be released upon completion or termination of the download. Is this an area that could be optimised for those of us with low memory?

    This browser is fast and lite, I don’t want to slow it down or turn it into a Firefox clone, but it could use at a built-in addons:

    1. A scrapbook plus-type, that can quickly switch between multiple books for researchers.

    2. Privacy-type addons, like betterprivacy, ghostery, sharemenot

    3. A color toggle-type addon, again for researchers this is one of the top 10 firefox addons.

    Also, the sidepanel is nice, but it is a screen hog, at least make it adjustable and remember last position.

    Hi, there are dimbulbs out there (like me :) ) that don’t know how to install too much in Ubuntu outside of the software center or that tiny download that opens the software center for newer versions than are carried by the software center. Please have something like this available because all of this tar.gz stuff never works for me :(

    Also, maybe consider making Midori the “privacy browser”. I.E. get rid of geolocation cr@p (last i checked Midori doesn’t have) and all other snooping methods by the crooked rotten theiving tracking companies that are making BILLION$$$$$ off of selling people’s private data, most of whom are unaware of whats going on. Maybe team with StartPage (DuckDuckGo is fine too i guess) and see if there’s a way to fund development for a privacy-conscious browser.

    On my computer I have Midori, FIrefox, Chrome, Opera, Konqueror, Lynx (yes it is handy sometimes). Midori wins for most of my daily work since it is what FireFox and Opera used to be- fast and lightweight. If you can’t tell, I am impressed. Keep up the good work!

    I still use firefox because of plugins and certificate handling when I am developing a site or when I am doing ecommerce which needs extra caution. Occasionally I use Lynx to see what is going on and how spiders see a web-site.

    However, if Midori drifts away from the lightweight browser it is there will be no reason to not return to Firefox 100% of the time. How about different versions for each? A plugin manager like Firefoxes would work too, but then you are competing with Firefox on grounds it has already won. It is better to fill the void Firefox left (about 3 or 4 IIRC).

    How about a mobile version of Midori that will compete with Opera mobile?

    what we need is a “Hi-Privacy Browser”, something that is basically harvesting webpages and giving little or no info to the website servers, 3rd party tracking etc. I think if you repositioned Midori as this kind of a browser it would become incredibly popular in a few years at most. Just look at Startpage.com – already profitable and growing quickly just by word of mouth. Same thing would happen with Midori. As it is now there’s not too much that separates it from the mainstream browsers other than its light on resources. And where is the config:about option? can we disable Geolocation? Privacy is going to become a huge issue once the avg person finds out just how much data all of these websites and 3rd party trackers have been compiling on them. And forget about firefox and chrome and opera doing anything about it – they all make their money from the search engines.

    Hello.I have a bug to report.Well ,that is it . After I run the command “./ configure”,it said “Checking for program version valac >= 0.1.6 : not found
    /root/Downloads/midori-0.4.7/wscript:107: error: valac version too old to be used with this tool” However, my version of valac is 0.1.8, it is not old at all. I think the version is new for midori .

    Midori works well in Windows 7 (detected as OSX flash, html5), sites that gave me problems with Opera (http 500) or Safari 5.1.7 (please drop down boxes) I have not. IDM works well and the only thing I have noticed that when leaving not clear the history and CCleaner does not detect the portable version

    No bookmarks?
    I am going to need a few pages for my speed dials and that will be a slow dial by then.

    And when I wish to download something I’d like to be consulted about where it is going to be saved. Being fast is good but not if I have to chase after it to clean up.

    I have only just got hold of the browser so I don’t have anything to compare it with. Thanks for the work though.

    I would totally switch to Midori if it would support Ghostery.

    Please create a preference settings for tabs, so I can choose which tab gets showed after closing another tab… now it automatically switches to the last tab, even if it’s empty. For instance, I have 5 tabs, tab 5 is empty, I go to tab 4 and load a page, I click on a link with ctrl pressed, in a new tab… if I close that tab, I do not return to tab 4, but the empty tab 5 !

    Good browser… Nice Job !

    Hi
    very good, using the version from standard Ubuntu 12.04 repo. Although in Firefox, I can click into the url line and see previously visited sites. Autocompletion works fine but I miss that, maybe there’s a hint for that?
    Thanks.

    Very fast browser but it would be great if it could manage SSL certificate and ciphers, my company need to use custom certificate authority but we can’t add it to Midori as there is no features available :(

    Please don’t bloat.
    Plenty of room for customization, should one want to:
    ~/.config/midori/extensions/
    ~/.config/midori/config
    ~/.local/share/midori/[styles extensions]
    “…aims to be lightweight and fast.” That’s why I like it. Please don’t change Midori into one of them bloatware browsers like IE. Mail, chat, all that plerf can be accessed easily via html or personal extensions.
    {Those who want Midori to work in Windows should try out XFCE4}
    I agree with pingback: https://duckduckgo.com/ is my new favorite search engine.
    Thank your for providing this fast, lightweight html rendering app!

    Midori is a lovely lightweight browser: congratulations and thanks.

    Just one plea :

    PLEASE don’t “fatten it” needlessly in this new variant, by adding email handling. Email is a quite separate function, needing a heavyweight client (because it has to have access to endless thousands of locally stored historial mails) – there is no reason to have all that baggage hanging on the back of a web browser. What we need is lightness and speed, which you’ve achieved brilliantly.

    I can’t imagine why anyone would want to combine an email client with a browser – the two are for different purposes, different work contexts, different times of the workng day.

    At least – PLEASE keep Midori available as a separate entity, if you do go in this new direction.

    Thanks a lot

    Mike, London

    Sorry, I don’t know the answer to that. I built this kreenl for a headless board that had a USB flash drive but otherwise no display, keyboard, or mouse.You might want to hop on #ubuntu-arm on freenode and see if they can help. The stock binary kreenl has everything under the sun and might cover what you need already.

    Great tip, thanks!Maybe avoid an accadentil push (nah, no idea how that could happen), one could usegit config global url.git://git.gnome.org/.insteadof gnome:this way you get access to the read only versionAlso to my big surprise i found out how good the tab-autocompletition in command line works try it out!

    Currently testing Midori on the Saluki OS.
    Great little browser, but one problem. The HTML5 support is not quite right. It is great for opening pages as an application, but, it doesn’t offer full offline support. Take read.amazon.com their online kindle app, works very well in firefox but in Midori the Pin book function does not seem to work meaning you can only read your books when you are connected to the internet.

    Be great if you could fix this, happy to help with the testing.

    Hi,

    Thanks for your dev efforts. Giving a try to your Midori. Seems a fine alternative.

    Please, give some thought to implementing “aliases”, that is, abbreviation shortcuts for web addresses, just like the feature found on Opera (called “nicks”) and Firefox (called “keywords”). For ex.: once set, the user only has to type, into the address bar, say, “goo”, visiting http://www.google.com, “mjg”, for http://www.majorgeeks.com and so on…

    Also, in my opinion a must-have feature worth-implementing would be the ability of importing Opera hotlinks (with nicks and all) and/or Firefox bookmark collections (also with keywords and all).

    Regards from Brazil.

    Good luck.
