We would have to look at those, but given the lack of extensions and
keyboard shortcuts for Epiphany, and the newness of Midori (have you tried
opening gmail in Midori? It reverts to the standard-html gmail interface,
and requiring sites to interface with Midori as if they were interfacing
with Safari shouldn't be something we should go with for an LTS).

I don't mean that as a knock against Midori.  I have the Midori PPA
installed, and use it with some frequency.  It's under really active
development, and it is a great project, but I don't think it would be ready
for use as the default browser in a release.
