Vivaldi in Distro
We are really surprised about this great and fast Vivaldi!
It's a great browser.
As we put Firefox the last years in our little Ubuntu/Linux Mint-based distro-project as the default browser, it breaks now the sound on our system while discontinuing supporting ALSA and switching to Pulseaudio as a hard dependency!
So with our next release we have to choose another browser!
Will Vivaldi support ALSA in the future?
-> our system is optimized for A/V-productions without Pulseaudio!
As Vivaldi is closed-source and with a company behind:
Is it possible to put Vivaldi in our next release?
What kind of data is sending to facebook, google or other companys through vivaldi?
Thanks for answering!
and best regards,
@chalee: I sent your request backstage to the developers and testers, in case anyone is interested.
@chalee: The founder has asked one of the guys (Director of Business Development) if he would contact you.
We get no answer until now - but it doesn't matter!
As we spoke in our team about it, we think that there could be a lot of complication (for you and us), because vivaldi is closed-source!?!
So we decided to put Chromium, Palemoon or Midori as pure open-source-browser by default
and give a note to our users, that they can install vivaldi by thereself easy.
Privatly it's my new favourite browser!!
