Will reloading work?
...and have you updated Midori? It doesn't crash that often nowdays compared to, say, 0.3.2.
Or just try another browser, such as Chromium and Firefox, or Dooble.

Thanks, already removed Opera - was slow besides other problems. Fool with Midori again - seems better now after a day with Opera. (:>)

Sounds like an 'opera buffa'!
Is Midori okay security-wise? I guess the advantage of Firefox is the many eyeballs it gets, so problems are identified and solved faster.

Do not think Midori is quite ready for prime time. Only displays about half the bookimark favicons (icons) and crashes too often with 4 or more windows open.

I agree with Douglas, I find that I have to reload a website in Midori twice for it to show correctly. It does not seem ready for everyday use.

I've had library books open in one tab, flash audio playing in another, and numerous reference tabs all open, no crashes. However, a couple of times when I tried to add a bookmark, it didn't seem to respond very well. The bookmarking thing may not be up to scratch. I've never been a big fan of bookmarking. Search engines work too well nowadays!
Is the security aspect pretty much standard across browsers?

I've now tried a bundle of web browsers: Arora, Chromium-browser, Epiphany, Firefox, Midori, Opera. Firefox was jerky on Lubuntu, so there is apparently a reason Chromium comes with Lubuntu. At this point the only one, coupled with Watt R5, in the above list that functions really well - is fast, stable and does the things I require - is chromium.

Thanks Douglas...the last couple of versions of wattOS had Chromium. I tried Midori in the last version, and will likely go back to Chromium as its what I use daily as well.

When I read this I searched on the browsers, and I found this: http://elementaryos.org/support/answers/814
Those people reason that Midori actually has some important advantages: better human interface guidelines, and written in Vala and C. So there may be some worthwhile motives for staying with Midori. $0.02
