Fooling around with Midori

Filed under
Software

Over the years, I’ve used a lot of Web browsers. Most of them are dead and gone, and most people probably haven’t heard of many of those browsers. So, when I run into a new (at least, for me) browser my friends shake their heads. They can’t understand my curiosity.

And that curiosity was piqued a week or so ago. I was going back and forth about browsers on identi.ca. In one dent, I mentioned that tried I’d a browser called Midori and hadn’t been impressed.

Somehow, that got the attention of one of Midori’s developers. He dented, suggesting that I try installing the browser from the project’s PPA. I gave it a shot. And even though I’ve only been using Midori for a week and a bit I am impressed.

Android-on-ARM mini-PC draws less than 7W

The DSA2LS runs a pre-installed Android 4.2.2 (Jelly Bean) with integrated online or offline update functionality on a dual-core, 1GHz Freescale i.MX6 DualLite system-on-chip. The SoC has a Vivante GC880 GPU that’s not as powerful as the Vivante GC2000 GPU found on the Dual and Quad i.MX6 models, but it still plays back 1080p video and offers 3D graphics acceleration. The power-sipping DualLite enables the fanless computer to run at a modest 6.26W active and 1.42W standby, according to Shuttle’s AnTuTu benchmarks. Read more
