Midori is a very fast web browser which is free and available for Linux platforms and Windows operating system. It is small, but very powerful and useful.
This lightweight web browser supports the most popular parts of the web such as Google, Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Spotify and Rdio. So good, I love the spotify app and is even better for me that Midori supports it. Just make sure you have Adobe Flash Player installed before listening to music on Youtube or Spotify, am i clear?
Midori is not only fast and small, it is also beautiful."It is carefully crafted by skilled designers and coders, right down to the last pixel." What about user privacy?
Midori comes with built-in privacy tools that help the user to protect his/her privacy while surfing the internet. Following are some privacy tools included in Midori web browser:
- script disabling
- thrid-party cookie blocking
You can also tell the web browser to delete the browsing history after a set amount of time.
