What's new in Midori 0.5.8:
- Today is the day of Midori 0.5.8. Dedicated to Adblock and WebKit2. Rather than trying to meet fixed dates as we used to, we selected which goals define if the cycle is done. No more no less
- As liked, fast and efficient our Adblock extension was, the original maintainer isn’t around anymore and flaws were accumulating on a code base that wasn’t very accessible anymore. So long story short Adblock is rewritten from C to Vala, several classes and files instead of one monolithic entity, plenty unit test cases and real whitelist support. Add to that a statusbar icon for easy flipping filtering on and off and seeing whether anything was blocked on the site. If you had problems with peculiar display problems whilst using Adblock, chances are good they’ll be gone with the upgrade. Adblock is as always shipped with Midori so just be sure to enable it in the Preferences
- In other news WebKit2 is making another big jump and closer to the finish line. Text selection behavior, favicons, support for multiple rendering processes, opening new windows and setting cache and cookie paths correctly. There’s still work to do in the areas of extensions and downloads in particular, but we’re getting there
- We have working spelling corrections again. Right-click an underlined word and pick a suggestion from the menu. It’s that simple

The app has a simple interface, similar to those of other modern web browsers. It supports tabs, which means that you can open a large number of pages at the same time and swap between them with ease.
Midori can also open private windows. Any pages visited in “Private Browsing” mode aren’t stored into the app’s history log and the web cookies aren’t saved. Also, no website can track your activity, language settings or time zone while using this mode.
Furthermore, the program comes with a shortcut panel where you can save various web addresses for fast access.
The app’s “Preferences” area enables you to choose the action you want the program to perform when it starts. For instance, it can show the last open tabs, the Speed Dial page or the Homepage.
Also, you may fiddle with the font settings, define a default output folder for the downloaded files and several network options. The way the browser looks may be modified by altering the toolbar style.
Some privacy settings are available. Thus, you can have the cookies and history log deleted after a certain period of time (one hour, one day, one week, one week or one year).
Midori comes with several extensions which allow you to modify the way the browser works and looks. For instance, you can color each tab distinct shade, copy the addresses of all tabs to the clipboard and block advertisements according to a filter list, just to name a few.
The bottom line is that Midori is a nice program that can be of great use on a daily basis. Inexperienced users should have no problems in figuring out how to work with this software.
