The Windows version is far from lightweight, in fact it consumes more memory than Firefox and Chrome. Stability issues as well as a dearth of extensions limits its use. A good project but not ready yet for serious users.

Download link hopscotch. I downloaded from Softonic. Speed and rendering seemed a bit questionable.

Open source, clean, but perform not well on windows. Perhaps Falkon is a better choice...

The old Midori is gone and replace with a chrome like copy. I waited months to see if the new Midori with the new owners would make it better. What happen is that they did not care about Midori, junk the old code, claim to still using "webkit GTK+" and lie about features. There is no privacy it has trackers has one user found out: https://github.com/midori-browser/core/issues/422

Using Any.run it connects to the servers every time: https://app.any.run/tasks/85027248-3801-4a8d-a7cb-8c06919e9ed3

Cross-browser extensions is a lie, you can not use firefox add-ons, only chrome extensions because it is a chromium product.

Sync & Cloud Storage is a lie, it does not exist without installing another software.

Midori is dead

Midori isn't lightweight any more. It has become a good for nothing heavy ass browser with no addon support. The default homepage is populated by crap & the project seems dead for good. Chromium & Firefox are way better. Old Midori 9 can be built from source though, and it's light as it's supposed to be https://github.com/midori-browser/core

It might be fast but I'll never actually find out because it crashes every time I run the program. (i'm using windows 10home 64bit) I have tried running this on different computers and it always crashes

It's the same on my system (Windows 7 pro 64): the portable version of Midori hangs at launch. I only tried two times and delete it, considering that the list of bugs on its website was already scary before I downloaded this software. In fact, it is worst than what I expected.
