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.
