Midori 0.5.10
Midori is a lightweight browser, yet capable of handling all common web site technologies.

Midori is a lightweight WebKit-based browser.

The program's big button interface and straightforward settings mean it's very easy to use. And of course you also get core features like tabs, a configurable search gadget, user styles, cookie management and extensions for the most needed features such as ad blocking, form completion and mouse gestures.

There are plenty of extras, too: spell-checking, RSS/ Atom/ XML feed detection, an ad blocker, kiosk mode, customisable user agent and more.

Sounds great, in theory. In practice, it's not so reliable, at least for the Windows build we tried: the program crashed each and every time we tried to launch it on our first test machine. We had more luck on the second, but that wasn't exactly encouraging.

If you're looking for a WebKit browser which just works, then, opting for Chrome would make more sense. But when you get Midori working it's a likeable tool, easy to use but with some interesting features, and if you're exploring the alternative browser world then we'd give it a try.

Verdict:

Midori can be a good choice for fast web browsing on lower powered hardware.

Windows 10 May 2019 Update ISO (build 1903)

Free Full Commercial Software

This is the latest version of Windows May 2019 Update. it's a media creation tool that can be used to upgrade an existing installation of Windows or create installation media for another PC. Just make your choice after launching the tool and it'll do the rest.

What was new in Windows 10, when it was released? The OS brought back the Start Menu, though with a twist: live tiles keep you up-to-date with the latest news while also providing an easy way to launch apps. (Don't worry if you prefer the Start Screen, it's still there and you can boot into it if you prefer.)

Apps now work much more like regular desktop programs. They have minimise, maximise, restore and close buttons, and can be resized (to a degree) and organised however you like.

If you've still lost track of a program in the mass of open windows, a new Task Spaces feature can help. Click its taskbar button and you'll see thumbnails for everything running now, a little like OS X's Mission Control - just click something to switch to it.

Better still, Task Spaces also supports virtual desktops. Add extra desktops as required and it'll display thumbnails of each one, making it easy to identify whatever you're after and switch to it.

There's also smarter snapping, new customisation options, and even a bunch of experimental additions to the command prompt.

May 2019 Update brings a whole host of new features for Windows 10. See the Microsoft Blog for more information.

The Windows 10 ISO will give you build 1903 which is the May 2019 Update.
