The latest version of lightweight webkit browser Midori has been released.

Alongside bug fixes and stability improvements version 0.3.0 sees duckduckgo.com set as the default search engine. Never heard of it? Wikipedia says: -

“[DuckDuckGo.com] uses information from crowd-sourced sites (like Wikipedia) with the aim of augmenting traditional results and improving relevance. The search engine philosophy emphasizes privacy and does not record user information.”

  • Support for libnotify 0.7
  • Correct bookmark and search icon names
  • Better link menu handling
  • Fix Russian keyboard issues
  • Simplify language and panel options
  • Default to DuckDuckGo search
  • No Netscape plugins in extension panel
  • Easy user add-on install infobar
