Midori 0.5.11 Browser Adds Client Side Decoration Support

For those not already set with their open-source browser choice or do in fact currently use the Midori browser, an update to this WebKit-powered browser is now available.

Midori 0.5.11 is the new version out this morning and its biggest change is support for client-side decorations. When enabled via the GTK_CSD=1 environment variable, client side decorations and the GTK+ header bars are now supported for this browser. The CSD support is good considering Wayland support has already been worked on for this browser.

Midori 0.5.11 also has bumped its requirements for WebKit2, libSoup, and Zeitgeist. There are also many bug-fixes present in this new version.

More details on this open-source GTK+WebKit web-browser update can be found via Midori-Browser.org.
