Fast and light-weight Linux browser
From time to time I still use my old Lenovo S205 netbook from 2011, not as my main computer but for travel and writing. And for some reason I really like it.
Perhaps the limitation of resources and the fact that I can’t run 20 apps, browse Facebook and stream Youtube at the same time is actually a nice feature. It makes me focused on my task. Oh and the keyboard is very nice as well.
I run Xubuntu, write a bit of Ruby in terminal and use mostly Vim for my writing. Nothing too intense — small projects and small files. The only pain point is when browsing the internet. Firefox and Chrome are too slow and clunky on a resource limited PC.
One thing that surprised me is that you can use J a K keys to move the page up and down. Pretty neat feature for Vim users.
In overall the experience with Midori is smooth and it’s a nice little responsive browser that suits perfectly my old and slow netbook.
