Midori 0.5.9

If you like light and fast software then you’re probably more than half way of liking Midori. For those of you who aren’t familiar with it yet – Midori is one of the best alternatives to Firefox / Chrome.

As of today a new version of the nimble browser is released into the wild and here’s what it packs in it:

Midori 0.5.9 Feature Highlights

  • Show search menu upon left icon click in location bar
  • Make middle clicking ‘reload’ button duplicate the current tab.
  • Don’t hide window decorations for Midori-Granite. [relevant for Elementary OS users]
  • Trim old and unused code – making Midori even lighter and faster.
  • Plenty of bug fixes!

I’m not sure how would other people feel like, but to me Midori 0.5.9 feels faster and smoother (especially animations) than its former versions.

No doubt the developer/s done remarkable job at improving Midori and pushing the open source web browser further into the edge.
