Available Midori 0.4.4

Just been announced on the list of Xfce la Midori version 0.4.4 one of the lightest browsers available for GNU / Linux.

I leave you my modest translation of the message in English:

We have once again made improvements to GTK + support, which is why the release of this version was delayed. Unfortunately, there are several behavioral issues that could not be traced back to code that indicate that Midori must be compiled with the -enable-gtk3 option to allow support for GTK 3.

The work around the clipboard error was removed WebKitGTK + 1.4.3. It is recommended, however, if it is possible to update WebKit as it also affects applications such as Empathy and Devhelp.

Support for the Unity menu bar has been improved, including work around the hard-coded menuproxy blacklist.

DuckDuckGo has been the default search engine for a while. Meanwhile, it received several improvements. Midori now cooperates with the search engine so that part of the revenue from the ads is donated to Midori through the use of a constant, not a single tag.

The experimental full-screen API used by HTML5 video websites is now supported. Deleting and exporting bookmarks has been improved. IPv6 addresses are best handled when typed in the url bar. The 'Open in Image Viewer' function was implemented.

When starting the private browsing mode an information page is shown aligning the key facts in a different way to the normality of the web browsing sessions. Midori should be safe by default.

As last-minute surprises, if Midori runs with less than 352MB of RAM, the page cache is automatically disabled, which greatly improves memory usage in configurations of this type.

The experimental data policy site finally allows basic whitelisting and blacklisting of Web cookies, local databases and the preservation of compensation values, with private data. Note however that at this time it is not complete, and there is no UI yet.

    Wow, and I was just about to check the official page. Now I just have to wait for the Debian Sid .deb package, and despite the fact that I use an LTS, the only thing I update often is Midori, as each new version improves much more.

    God ... if I weren't so lazy I'd already be using LMDE, but just for playing I use win.

    I want to be a BD and web developer, I will have to put you in this to get ahead.

    Very good news! I got to know midori recently thanks to the Slitaz distro and was surprised how light it is. I haven't installed it on any of my systems yet, but I'm going to take advantage of this release to see what happens.

    Excellent, hope they improved the stability too 🙂 Midori is straightforward, light but just very good.

    Hello, it is true that it is great. I recently installed Squeeze with LXDE on a 128Mb RAM PC and with Midori I made the most of it, I just couldn't configure the proxy, a real shame.
