Midori Web Browser

I wouldn’t say my hardware is exactly poor but its not cutting edge up to date either so over the years I’ve evolved towards low foot print applications and services for most of my systems.

With this in mind I use slim and LXDE on my ArchLinux Laptop, the other day I heard about Midori which came out as the fastest browser around at the minute. At work I have an openSUSE box so thought I would give it a try on there, oh whoa is me, its installed but refuses to run complaining;

sales@linux-du10:~> midori

So I had a little moan on my local mailing list whereby everyone came back with "Works fine on Ubuntu" yeah cheers great help.
Anyway I gave it a try on my Arch system and its perfect, the speed is 10x faster than Firefox the only thing I miss is Foxmarks.
