Vivaldi has launched its own Mastodon instance and has hinted that it could build support for the alternative social network into its web browser

this could end up as an Embrace, Extend, Extinguish if it becomes the primary client that people use. but vivaldi is pretty niche and they open-source most components, so that makes it less likely

I would have switched to Vivaldi years ago if the whole thing was open source, but there’s no way in good consciousness I can support a closed source browser

And since it is closed source, I could never call it a privacy conscious browser.

It’s true, if something is closed source there’s no way to verify it’s secure, and if it’s not secure, it’s not private.

Sounds like a good fit since additional services is kind of vivalidis point of difference.

yes, their mail and calendar are great. such a breath of fresh air from the usual bloatware i find in corporate tech. i use open-source apps instead, but i can’t deny the convenience of having it all in one app, and the better UI from it being a corporate development

Mastodon works fine in the Web Panel o Vivaldi, I use it from there

@Zerush @SilentlyAnonymous i use it from firefox, it works well
