Midori 9.0


I have added a new version of midori to our BL 5.0 testing repo.

Features:

+ Use OpenGraph images for Speed Dial shortcuts
+ Better support for Javascript popups
+ (Re)store pinned tabs in the session
+ Re-introduce the Trust (certificate) button
+ Avoid key input recursion causing high CPU
+ Close Tab/ Other context menu items
+ Paste and Proceed option in the urlbar
+ Better urlbar suggestion escaping
+ Web extensions: Support for a sidebar action (experimental)
+ Merge app and page menu into one
+ Better focus handling of re-opened and background tabs
+ Show volume icon for tabs playing music

As usual post any comments or issues here.

Enjoy

wishing they would get to a proper bookmark manager ...

But yes it is slowly being modernized. Prob will never be as full featured as Chrome, FF, Opera et al but that is a good thing for us. Avoid all the bloat and if users want a more featured browser then they are free to install it.

I am actually running Midori 9.0 now (according to title at top). Use Midori for this forum. Gonna have to get 'under the hood' a bit more, obviously.

Midori is not the only browser that works with our appcenter. Any browser which supports apt-url works with it. This includes most well known browsers altho some may need to be configured properly to do so.

Perhaps midori was the only one that worked out of the box on Bodhi, but since BL 1.x apt-url could be made to work in at least FF as well as a few more. I remember writing wikis which are now gone from the net (but perhaps on the wayback machine) describing how to configure FF to work and perhaps a few other web browsers as well. Too lazy to look for it and while I have notes on stuff like that going back to those days, it is hardly worth it to look those up. It is dated information and not relevant now. On BL 5.0 using firefox for the first time on an apt-url link, FF asked if you want to open it with apt-url. So in that sense FF works out of the box. (I did check that btw).

I was that person who claimed the only Midori can work with App centre. That time I did not know how stuff works. Anyway I never configured other browser to work with App centre. I am an CLI guy

slowly modernized? thing is about useless and feels like i'm using a windows 95 browser, or something. it is good at crashing though!

I gave Midori 9 a try for a couple days. First thing is it's unique visually how the tabs open and close, hadn't seen that before, kinda cool.

Bookmarks were already mentioned, it appears you can add them, but no way to list them.

I prefer when I open a link in a new tab, to not automatically switch to that new tab. I didn't see an option for that in preferences. I could probably try to request that from author if was going to continue to use it as my primary browser.

However,there was a random unimportant link I tried to follow that wouldn't work, but opens fine in other browsers. No idea why. https://www.smithsonianmag.com/arts-...uare-62138490/

When I tried Midori in the past, lots of sites didn't open or work right, so it's way better than before, but still not good enuff to be primary browser in my opinion.

Also no automatic ad blocker, I didn't investigate to see if their is any add-on support or anything, so I spent a couple days looking at the kinds of ads I normally don't see.

P.S. it' didn't close right! Immediately after posting this with Midori, I decided I was done with it, so, because it's set (by default) to restore all tabs, I decided to close my ten or so open tabs. When I got down to three, they won't close. I can switch between them, but the pages themselves are frozen, can't scroll or anything. I can type in the address bar but it doesn't ever open another site. I was able to resolve by closing it completely, opening, then closing tabs worked.
