Major rumblings in the browser world
September 1, 2008
Wow. There’s a lot going on in the browser world again all of a sudden.
I recently came across a new open source browser, Midori, still in alpha status. It’s based on Apple’s WebKit (used in Safari) and is very fast. Surprisingly fast. Of course, it’s not done, and it shows. It crashes, many features aren’t yet implemented, etc. But it’s promising and worth keeping an eye on. It’s nice to have another KHTML/WebKit-based browser on free operating systems, too.
Nice to see so much movement.
