Midori: lightweight browsing

,----[ Quote ]
| Despite an already crowded browser market Midori 
| promises to be a lightweight alternative to browser | 
| bloat
| Despite an already wide range of browser options 
| available there is always space for one more browser, it 
| seems. Midori is one of the most recent additions to the 
| browser market and bills itself as one of the lightest 
| browsers around. Which is what Firefox billed itself as 
| in the early days of existence, before it became 
| increasingly bloated.


Update on using Chromium

,----[ Quote ]
| Itâs been a little over a month since I started using 
| Chromium, the Open Source version of the Google Chrome 
| Web browser. Since then, Iâve been using Chromium quite 
| extensively. While the honeymoon isnât over yet, I do 
| have a better handle on what I like and dislike about 
| Chromium and how it fits into my Web browsing and use of 
| Web apps.


The Grumpy Editor's hugin experience

| It is an impressive piece of work, even though it has 
| not yet reached its 1.0 release (version 0.8 came out in 
| July). It definitely belongs on any Linux-using 
| photographer's system.



Using sidux with Midori

,----[ Quote ]
| I now rate Midori as one of the fastest browsers. I found a few rendering
| issues, but they are minor, and I'd rate it better than Konqueror at
| accurately rendering most pages, including this blog. It is without question
| faster and more accurate than Konqueror, and sidux includes Konqueror as
| their default browser in the KDE edition, so I am lobbying to make Midori the
| new default Web browser in the next sidux XFCE edition; it deserves it.


Midori: Extremely Fast and Standards-Compliant

,----[ Quote ]
| Midori is a lightweight GTK web browser which uses the popular WebKit
| rendering engine. I installed it on my Eee PC netbook to see if it could
| replace Firefox for light browsing.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
