Midori, a lightweight web browser that features full integration with GTK+ and fast rendering with WebKit, is now at version 0.5.6.
The new and improved Midori 0.5.6 has been released with many bells and whistles. The developers don't usually have big jumps in terms of quality and features, but the current version release is quite a surprise.
“Our new session management nicknamed tabby need a little bit more polish so we decided to go for a double length release cycle. This is a proper rewrite of the tab loading at startup and for the first time fully aware of multiple windows, able to load most recently used websites first and smart enough to not block GUI updates.”
“If that’s not impressive enough it designed to get a sync backend and session management GUI is already work in progress, though it’s not ready for the spot light yet,” said the developers in the official announcement.
Highlights of Midori 0.5.6:
• The speed dial or homepage is now opening according to preferences;
