I just noticed the bug for preliminary wayland support was just closed.  I
haven't tried it.

Bug: https://bugs.launchpad.net/midori/+bug/975355

It's based on WebKitGTK+, so maybe that should work now as well?

  Preliminary Wayland support

Status in Midori: Webkit Web browser:
  Fix Released

Bug description:
  To work with wayland, gdk_x11_ calls and Xlib calls need to be wrapped
  in build-time and run-time backend checks:

  $ grep -r gdk_x11 .
  ./midori/sokoke.c:        Atom save_mode_atom = gdk_x11_get_xatom_by_name_for_display (
  ./midori/midori-browser.c:                         gdk_x11_xatom_to_atom (XA_INTEGER),

  $ grep -r Xlib .
  ./midori/main.c:    #include <X11/Xlib.h>


  The wayland backend in GTK+ 3.4 works, so as soon as these are done
  midori should be usable with wayland.
