Midori Portable

Sven Sorensen

Portable version of a fast web browsing featuring several privacy and ad-blocking options.

Free and open source Internet browsing software, reviewed by Sven Sørensen

Midori is a fast and free web browser which offers a number of privacy tools, an ad blocker and automatic cleaning of browsing history.

As the portable version of the program, Midori Portable can be run from virtually anywhere without leaving any traces on the system.

Midori offers many of the conveniences we have all come to expect from web browsers including bookmarks and a shortcut section which gives you quick access to selected web sites.

Just as with virtually all other modern browsers, Midori includes tabbed browsing which allows you to have multiple web pages open simultaneously. Like Firefox and Chrome, it also supports private web browsing where windows opened in this mode will not save in your history, nor will the sites you access it with access regular cookies.

Toolbar items can be moved around and customized. The browser comes with some extensions which can control looks and functionality.

All in all, the Midori browser is an interesting entry into the Windows browser market which uses the same open-source layout engine as many of the most popular Linux-based applications.
