Midori, Sync me baby one more time

Some of you have been wondering why there wasn’t a release yet. Things were looking pretty good with the 8/ 4 cycle. Well, the first rule of release was, is and probably always will be, release day is when the release is done. And somebody has to actually do it as well. Around the end of the cycle there was nobody available to work on the remaining items in the milestone and as a consequence the release was pushed back a little.

Midori Browser a lightweight browser, sure that respects and promotes the freedom of users with an exceptional work team made up of Christian Dywan, Luis Coronel and a special thanks to Maurizio Galli as main developers among others, today we announce the release of version 9.0 with many new features.

Among the main features we have:

  • Flatpak Support
  • Better support for Javascript popups.
  • (Re)store pinned tabs in the session.
  • Re-introduce the Trust (certificate) button.
