    When the cross-platform Vivaldi web browser was announced last month it came with same-day Linux binaries, but initially was limited to 64-bit-only. The Vivaldi browser developers have now decided to support 32-bit Linux too...

    That's why proprietary software is bad. The developer has a control over user. I can compile 32-bit 64-bit version of Chromium and also compile it for other systems, e.g. ARMv7...

      Can you please stop posting about this proprietary software, otherwise you might start posting about Adobe's Premiere and other 1000s of closed source software. Or is there a reason why you post particlary about it?

        Closed source is still closed source

        Yeah, vivaldi we dont need. Better solution is opensource fork of opera: Otter browser.

          I am not interessted as user in Vivaldi due to its closed-source nature, too. But i think it is worth an article.

              Yeah right, coz open source code auto-ports itself to different architectures. Oh wait, it doesn't, it's ported by... developers.

                Otter is not a fork. At all. Being a fork would mean that Opera is open source as well. It's a wannabe Opera remake, but a poor one actually.

                  The reason is that it supports Linux. Or should Phoronix stop the articles about Steam as well?

                  It's really amusing when Linux fanboys cry about the big evil companies not supporting Linux, but when they're stupid enough to do so, then you again do nothing else but complain. Right, coz every software company is a charity and they all should give away all code for you, otherwise they can go to hell. That's EXACTLY how this world works. Right?

                    You can always help to improve it. ;-)
