Midori: Is there a password manager? (Using Midori to Replace Opera).


I've been using Midori 0.5.2 for the last couple of days and, overall, I'm very pleased with its performance and GUI, but it lacks, IMHO, a password manager.

Searching the 'Net has resulting in very little recent information on the subject.

So, as the title says, Is there a password manager that will work with Midori?

Thanks.

Midori Linux looks to be based of Ubuntu, try Keepass http://www.howtogeek.com/93798/insta...-linux-system/

Thanks for the suggestion. I'll take a look, but as I'm using Slackware it may or may not work.
Thanks, again.

Take a look at KeepassX. There's a Slackbuild.

It's a standalone application, the databases are portable, and it comes in Linux, Windows, and Max, and the databases are compatible with KeepassDroid for Android.

I'm a little confused here, I thought Midori was a web browser, not a Linux distribution.

AFAIK, that particular Midori was an embedded OS and has not been developed since 2003.

Thanks! That did the trick.

You are correct. It was never said or inferred it was a distribution.

Glad I could help. I've been using KeepassX for slightly over a year and have been very happy with it.

Thanks, again. The more I use it, the better I like it. Now to figure out how to edit the bookmarks and I might adopt Midori to replace Opera (which appears to have committed suicide).

At idle, that is, loaded, but with a blank page, Midori uses a bit more memory than Opera, but once you start loading pages Opera uses almost double the amount of memory to display the very same page. OTOH, memory usage isn't an important factor in finding a suitable replacement for Opera. I like the Midori gui and, in some ways, it reminds me of earlier versions of Opera.

Oh, well. Things change, but not always for the better.

As I long-time Opera user, I find the reports I'm hearing most disquieting. If they turn out to be true, it will sorely disrupt my workflow.

I'll keep Midori in mind.

I call it, the "new" Opera 15, the chrome clone. If, and when, they put out a Linux version I'll take another look, but as for now, it is a write off. As I've said before, I feel like I've lost a old and good friend.

That's not necessarily bad...although it might turn out to be. The core of chrome, or actually chromium, isn't bad, its just some of the stuff surrounding it that isn't really all that good, until you add on a hundred different widgets and bits and pieces, to correct the problems/inadequacies. At that point, you get an unmaintainable monster that has never been tested (except for the testing that you do yourself) and whose speed and memory consumption may well be unrelated to the basic product, and that can be close to un-debuggable. (Plus, possibly, security issues.) Not the ideal situation.

If opera can take the core product and add on its own 'special source' in a fairly worthwhile way, it will have a value. If it can't, its dead.

At this point, the only thing that keeps me attached to Opera, apart from inertia, is that it handles bookmarks better than anything else (ootb). Yeah, you can handle 100s of bookmarks in any browser, but 10,000 or 100,000, and keep them organised so that you can actually find stuff, with sensibly finite amounts of work? Only with additional bits and pieces, in most browsers, and you don't know how well that will work until you try.

It is certainly one of the critical factors for me. I quite regularly end up with Opera taking up a couple of gigs, and that's a limitation. Earlier, before I realised how much the add-ons were inflating things, it was higher by a substantial percentage (25 - 50%?), and that was unworkable. These days, I try to keep Opera clean, and use a different browser for trying any adventurous stuff, and yes, I do like Midori, but it does feel like a project where 'the next release' is going to be the big one, and maybe it always will. But, there isn't all that much that stops me from changing to Midori as my main browser and using something else as the test mule.

At first the Chrome Clone, i.e., Opera 15, was NOT going to have bookmark capability and they expected everyone to use "Speed Dial" which I've always thought was only useful if you have just a handful of bookmarks. They also came up with some other half baked ideas, something called "Stash," and something else, I cannot remember name.
Finally, just this last Wednesday, they bowed to the users and said they will put bookmark ability into the Chrome Clone. We'll have to wait and see if they actually do it and how they do it.

At present there is no version for Linux, and if what I think is going on, is going on, I doubt there will be a Linux version.

Opera should have been the leading browser for all these many years, but the people who own/manage Opera do not have and have never had, the first clue of how market their product.

Supposedly, the change was to use WebKit as the browser engine. OK, Midori is a WebKit browser, but not "full featured," but not hard on they eyes either, and in some ways reminds me of earlier versions of Opera. Konqueror is a full featured browser and can be WebKit or KHTML, your choice, and very good looking, IMO.

So, the question becomes, why is Opera stumbling over their own feet trying to come up with a good looking, useful, WebKit browser?

Because they are in bed with Google, that is why, and Google doesn't want the competition. In one form or the other Google has paid Opera to commit suicide and go away. This is all conjecture on my part, but as the old saying goes,

"When all else fails, i.e., it doesn't make sense, follow the money."
