What is midori?

A lightweight web browser based on WebKitGTK+, for Unix, Windows, Maemo
and other platforms. Several extensions provide advanced functionality
such as advertisement blocking, cookie management, userscripts or mouse


Release notes for 0.4.3
The web inspector resizing issues were addressed and the maximum number
of closed tabs in private browsing is fixed.

There were a number of improvements to the GTK+ 3 support. Private
browsing makes use of the dark theme. The new
channel-(in)secure-symbolic icons are used if they're available. The
location supports .security-(un)trusted style classes. Tab icons display
properly. Configure no longer requires the GTK+ 2 version of
javascriptcore. The speed dial is fully usable.

There were a whole lot of performance improvements. Startup is much
faster due to optimizing how actions and tabs are created. Adblock uses
less allocations - and the Easy Privacy list is included by default -
and the cookie manager became faster.

Location and search in the toolbar can now be resized by dragging,
fullscreen hides all bars and borders now and the preference to override
all fonts handles monospaced fonts more selectively.

Support for GTK+3 is considered beta quality. It's almost ready but
minor issues are still expected. Build with --enable-gtk3
--disable-addons to test it.
