Midori (?, Japanese for green) is a lightweight[4][5] and fast [6][7] web browser. It uses the WebKit rendering engine[4] and the GTK+ 2 or GTK+ 3 interface. Midori is part of the Xfce desktop environment's Goodies component.[8] It is the default browser in elementary OS,[8] the SliTaz Linux distribution[9] and the Bodhi Linux distribution[10] as well as Trisquel Mini, SystemRescueCD, and Raspbian. It was also used by wattOS in its R5 release.[11]

Midori is part of the standard Raspbian distribution for the Raspberry Pi ARMv6-based computer. While Dillo and NetSurf are also in the menu, Midori also features as a desktop link. Midori is also packaged with elementary OS and Bodhi Linux as their default web browser.
