Midori is a lightweight, uncucked web browser. Developed as part of the Xfce project, it is written in C and licensed under the LGPL v2.1. It is based on the WebKit engine.
Pros:
lightweight enough to run on an older Raspberry Pi
LGPL v2.1+
only 56,882 SLOC, compared to Firefox' 10.2 million and Chrome's 7.1 million
no analytics
plugin support
Cons:
few plugins available
no process separation
Thoughts? Anyone here used it?

I thought the browser was no longer being updated?

Latest version 0.5.11 released 2015-08-30, but 0.5.7 was released 2014-01-15. It's not inactive, just very slow, so it's more a case of getting very little attention from the developers.
Uncucked by SJWs.
writing performance-critical code in anything but C
comparing lines of code to software that isn't just a gtk3 wrapper around a browser engine
The rendering engine isn't included. Mozilla Core (presumably including gecko) is 15,272,315 lines of code.
requires 2 versions of ruby to build
I don't see anything about that.
binary plugins only
Would you rather have your plugins interpreted for a horribly slow experience?

I run it with JS disabled to test websites. Since WebKit doesn't have the best HTML5 compatibility and everything it supports is supported by every major browser (except, maybe, Internet Explorer) I can be sure that it will like mostly the same across every browser.
I also use it as a backup to open several email accounts/watch porn.

I use it in VMs and on minimal installs. The javascript VM is slow as fuck and gets unstable when it's resource starved, and there is the occasional rendering error on complex sites, but otherwise it does what it is supposed to do without taking up too much space.

Do you know what a "JIT" is, son?

Tabs
Shit
Make a fucking effort.

Tabs should not be in an application. It's inconsistent and redundant. They should be in the taskbar.

Am using it right now. Was using Vivaldi, and liked the addons and features, but the snail pace is unbearable. So I'm with Midori for now, until not having Vivaldi's features gets unbearable. Guess it's a tradeoff.

if the choice is closed proprietary botnet(vivaldi) or segfault(midori) i'll choose segfault any day

can i run uBlock Origin on it? and also, how much does it protect your privacy?

palemoon is crashing a lot on me, it also consumes almost as much as firecuck in memory. can i keep hundreds of tabs open in Midori for days on end on windows 7?

Tell me more about this tabbar.

Midori is a good browser to use for short periods of time, its incredibly buggy though and will somtimes just crash itself and die, which isn't a bad thing I've had qutebrowser just go off and be the little engine that oculd and take up 50% of my cpu. But it fails the adcancer test, because of its lack of decent adblocker.

good for using internet during system setup I also recommend to you w3m when doing that
take it ED for an adblocking test, and watch it fail
Good for work during installs(getting a background looking at wikis etc) but crap at being a day to day browser.

I prefer Qupzilla, for that particular niche. I use qutebrowser myself but it's really autistic compared to Midori and Qupzilla.

The standard taskbar, with rectangular entries for every open window, is actually a crude form of tabbing. If you add program grouping, preferably in a usable icon-only way like KDE Plasma or Windows 7, then the tabbing becomes a bit more advanced with each application getting its own tab group. Now, add the ability to lock all windows of a given application to the same dimensions. Put things like "close all windows to the right" or similar in context menus within tab groups. Bam! Everything has usable tabs in a consistent manner.

How does it compare on memory usage? Firefox uses fucking 180MB with 0 tabs open on my machine.

How relevant to the discussion!

Lightweight enough for me, I just uninstalled cuckfox.
The fact that it might not support the latest JS anti-features makes it extra good.

Brody Roberts

So what browser would you suggest? Surf?

Isaac Butler
Isaac Butler

I don't really have many suggestions because all current browsers are shit. They're either bloated botnet, or make use of bloated crap, or can't parse html5 properly, have issues filtering ads, etc.

Absolutely disgusting

Sorry as much as I respect and enjoy the other things that have come out of the Xfce project, on this I'll have to pass.
