    First, I want to say that his distribution of Linux as absolutely terrific - I think the developers have done an extraordinary job. I found a review on the web in which the author expressed the view that Elementary Linux could be the "next big thing" in the Linux Community. I think that's it's certainly a possibility. I actually compiled web and mail servers on my PC (from source) simply to see what problems might arise. It was a bit tricky, but I got both web and mail servers working. ANYWAY: Why Midori? It doesn't do flash (as far as I can tell) and it's just kind of an oddball package, in my opinion. I don't like the manner in which it shows visited pages in a tab bar, either. Also, the only included package with which I've had technical problem is "Scratch". I have to install Gedit because Scratch keeps failing. Still, a great job by the development team - very fast, great wallpapers.....certainly the sort of thing that could lure folks away from Windows.

    Hey 88guy

    This forums are non official community forums, because the developers only provide google+ and reddit as support platform (unfortunately! another big fail in my opinion).
    But - developers already took notice about this forum here (saw it on twitter), we hope they're reading your post :)

    I do also not use midori (bad performance) and i've the same issue with scratch (crashes) as you have.

    Okay - I was "88guy" but something went weird with my registration.....so I registered again. ANYWAY: Yep, Midori and Scratch seem like pointless attempts to fix things which are not broken. There's nothing wrong with Firefox, and, Chrome (or the Chromium-browser) is another option. And, while Gedit is old as the hills, it works simply and works fine. Besides the fact the Scratch stops working after any sort of updating, it's not very intuitive (no save, nor "save as" button). It's a pretty crappy little editor, in my opinion. It's a great distro, but, i think that these are some really strange software choices. Not sure what they were thinking with these.....
