MX 17 Repository: The Midori Browser Thread

#1 Post by Stevo » Mon Nov 12, 2018 7:56 pm

After a long period of seemingly little activity, the developers released a completely rewritten Midori 6.0 on Halloween 2018, and we've packaged it for the test repo. It also switched to a libwebkit2 separate browser engine instead of libwebkit, which means that can be updated to fix security bugs...unlike libwebkit, which is not being updated. It's also using GTK+ 3 instead of 2 now.

Midori remains a fast, lightweight browser, but picks up support for many of the newest Web technologies.

If you try it, let us know how it installs from the test repo and how it performs. Thanks!

I downloaded it and in installed and seemed to run well enough.

But what I immediately noticed was that the interface was organized considerably differently from the picture in this thread. In using it I see it has the "gnome 3" look and feel which I really don't care for.

I'm always on the look for a new lighteight browser, and I might be able to get used to it but I think I'll stay with conventional styling and pass on anything gnome-3 style and hope for better from Falkon when/if it becomes more readily available.

I think it loses a lot of points because it doesn't support HTML5 streaming (i.e. something like video chat in the browser) based on what I can see in the results.

I asked on the Debian forums if anyone using straight Debian would file a bug against the package requesting an update in the Debian repos. I just had to swap some build-depends and tinker with a config file install to get it to build, so a real maintainer shouldn't have any trouble doing the same thing.

Right, I think it loses a lot of points because it doesn't support HTML5 streaming, and Peer To Peer:
Midori Peer To Peer: 0/45 , like Palemoon: Peer To Peer2/45 (Palemoon too) but for me it is not very important.

The most important items are for me Security items:
Midori 6.0
Security 24/3
Missing:
Subresource Integrity
Web Authentication / FIDO 2
Credential Management

2D
Image export formats
WebP support
--------
Palemoon 28.1.0
Security 24/32
Missing:
Content Security Policy 2
Web Authentication / FIDO 2
Credential Management

2D
Image export formats
WebP support

Video&Audio codecs
