I noticed the uploading of the midori browser, and tried it out.

Both this and epiphany-webkit have some significant bugs, but they are also quite fast and can handle my bank's evil website.

Midori is actually better with the bank; it's quite usable.

It does lack a few things, like you can't load a webpage into a running version of it, you can only run it as "midori http://www.bankofamerica.com" or whatever. But it does navigate pretty well. Neither of these saves the cookie it needs to in order to remember who I am from login to login.

epiphany-webkit ignores commands (either button-presses or menu selections) for back/forward, or quit, things like that, nor will it navigate with the arrow keys; you have to use the scrollbars. These are known problems with webkit, apparently, according to what I read. Midori does respond to the back and quit buttons, but can't be convinced to use the arrow keys except to scroll among its buttons.

Epiphany-webkit seems to have imported bookmarks from either epiphany-gecko or possibly from firefox (leftover from when I had titchy on the machine; re-loading my home directory put the config files back).

I wanted to make some comments and ask some questions about midori browser,
and I didn't want to open a new thread, so I'm posting here.
I've been playing with midori ver 0.0.15 which is in the angstrom feed for 2.6.24 kernel GPE
I'm using Angstrom-x11-image-glibc-ipk-2007.12-r13-spitz
I finally figured out how to get the address and search boxes to "reveal" themselves! smile.gif
Just select edit -> preferences -> interface.
Use the dropdown that shows "Default" and change it to "Icons"
And also: Show small icons [x]
Now you can type in an URL or search.

I have some questions. I went to this site, which has a midori FAQ and tried some of the work arounds there,
but I couldn't get the ones I tried to work. (I'm not asking about this here though).

What I need to know, is how to get bookmarks working. Bookmarks items are grayed out, and ctrl+d doesn't work
Many, many items in the preferences dialog are also grayed. How does one fix these?
