Midori vs Epiphany Review

Filed under
Software

In the last couple months I've been seeing a lot of articles concerning the Midori web browser. It's a lightweight GTK-based browser that uses the WebKit rendering engine also used by browsers like Chromium and Safari. Since then, Epiphany has also jumped onto the WebKit bandwagon.

I've used both browsers before, but I've never tested them side-by-side. I'm going to use the "time cat" command in the terminal as a sort of stopwatch; note that due to errors resulting from my human reaction time, though "time cat" reports times to the millisecond, I'm only going to report times accurate to the tenth of a second (that being the uncertain significant figure).
