Raspberry Pi Midori

In this Raspberry Pi Midori tutorial, I go through all the steps to installing the Midori browser to the Raspbian operating system.

Midori is yet another lightweight browser for the Raspberry Pi. Much like Luakit, for what this browser lacks in extensions and features, it makes up for in performance.

There are probably a lot of other better choices when it comes to Raspberry Pi browsers, but if you’re willing to give something a little different a go, then Midori should be on your list to try.

If you’re ready to give this browser a go,  go through all the steps of installing Midori to the Raspberry Pi right below.

All the pieces of equipment that I made use of for this simple Raspberry Pi Midori tutorial can be found right below.

Midori Features

Midori might be lightweight, but it does contain a lot of the basics that you require with a modern browser. I will go through just a couple of the features, but you can find out more over at their website.

Built for the Modern Web

Midori can handle most of the latest web technologies such as HTML5, CSS3 and much more. You will be able to have the full experience on most modern websites. Some websites such as Spotify may require further configuration to work on the Raspberry Pi.

Built-in Privacy Tools

Another must-have in a modern browser is the ability to clear any data that you don’t want lingering around. Midori also has the ability to disable scripts, third-party cookie blocking, and strip referrer details. You can also set up automatic history clearing. Installing something like NordVPN will help further increase your privacy and web security.

Open Source

If you love open source software, then you will be pleased to see that the Midori browser is open source. You’re able to download the source code over at the Wiki. You can also browse the development repositories.
