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, and SystemRescueCD. It was also used by wattOS in its R5 release, although the OS dropped it ahead of its R6 release in favour of R4's web browser Chromium.[11]


Inclusion in OS distributions[edit]


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 as its default web browser.
