Midori 0.5 Released, Works Towards WebKit2
Written by Michael Larabel in GNOME on 4 April 2013 at 08:48 PM EDT. 6 Comments
The lightweight GTK+ web-browser Midori has seen its v0.5.0 release. Midori 0.5.0 offers up new features for those using this WebKit-powered browser, but more features are on the horizon.

Among the features to find with Midori 0.5 is the introduction of a Cookie Security Manager (accepting/rejecting cookes on a per-site basis in real-time), improvements to the kiosk/execute use-case, speed dial improvements, and completely configurable mouse gestures.

Some behind the scenes work is adding support for WebKit2 and improved extension loading. In terms of WebKit2 usage, there's still more work ahead for future releases of this lightweight GTK2/GTK3 web-browser. WebKit2 is the updated interface for the Webkit rendering engine designed to fully support a split process model where the web content is separate from the browser UI model.

More details on Midori 0.5.0 can be learned from this blog post.
