Hmm! That's a possibility that I didn't think about. Although, I don't think I'm skilled enough to do that just yet. Specially not with a full browser. Sorry!

I am not certain it is worth my effort to try to re-package midori to use the new webkit libraries. For me it was just a proof of concept: to show that it was possible.

Maybe not, if it remains unmaintained for longer it won't help in the end.


I feel most users replace midori with a 'more reasonable and familiar' browser.

That's most probably true. I was just pointing out something I found out by accident.


For the record a few years ago I tried PaleMoon but at the time I found it far more unstable on my system than Firefox.

I've been using Pale Moon for sometime on another system and never had any issues with it. It has been very stable. I also had it on my mobile until they drop support for android.


Again, my post was just ment to inform. I'm very happy with Bodhi with or without Midori. Keep up the good work!

I've decide to change my web browser away from Midori and installed Pale Moon. Pale Moon, as you might know is a fork of Firefox but, it's slightly lighter than it's parent.

If anyone would want to try it, just do the following...

sudo sh -c "echo 'deb http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:/stevenpusser/xUbuntu_16.04/ /' > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/palemoon.list"
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install palemoon

I've also removed Midori since according to https://bugs.debian.....cgi?bug=864951

it uses unmaintained WebKit1 instead of webkit2gtk

sudo apt-get remove --purge midori

Thanks both but, here is the reason for my question...



I usually use Firefox, but kept midori in Bodhi since I liked it as a lightweight alternative. I always install stuff using apt-get or synaptic, so I don't really have to stick to midori.

Once again thanks!
