    The truth is that it sounds very good, I currently use Firefox but it is true that I feel it heavy ... not on the main computer but on my old laptop ... Anyway, I would like firefox to take account of this browser and consider it in the future improve this aspect, although it does not seem to me that it is currently bad, just a little weak in some aspects.

    I used it when I installed elementary os luna, a couple of years ago and I really did not like it at all, I installed flash in many ways and it never worked!

    I just installed it on Debian 8.3.0 amd64 and it is much slower than chromium and iceweasel.
    In the drop-down lists it only looks for the first letter when you type, let's say that it does not adjust the search with the first characters entered, only with the first.

    I agree that it is simple.

    Don't ever install this program. I have tried to uninstall it from my computer (Win 10 in this case) but it does not appear in the "uninstall programs" view, I have managed to uninstall it with an uninstaller in hunter mode, but another Midori file has appeared in another location, outside of program files. I have managed to remove it as well, but the firewall still keeps indicating that there is midori activity on my computer. It allowed the external communication access of midori in the public network (as it was already configured), and I had to change my network from public to private, since in this mode, the application communication was blocked. To this day, I still don't know where the heck the active Midori files are hiding. I just hope I have blocked the program from communicating with the outside world through the firewall.
