Re: Midori and Google Docs


Hey Cassidy,

You might wanna file this as a bug against the auto setting. 

Thanks be to the gods that this works now xD

Best Regards,
Daniel Foré

I was mostly letting you all know in case you now wanted to use Midori for Google Docs that it's possible.

I'd just like to point out that this is no longer an issue (and might have been this way for a while). The "only" caveat is that you have to make Midori identify as itself rather than setting it to automatic.
