dont know how i completely forgot opera existed but it feels like a real good time to look back into it after learning to really hate firefox and mozilla as a whole lmao

@root i'm an opera OG, but i dropped them when they switched to the chromium engine and lost all their customization

@john learning it was chromium was devastating but fortunately cy came in with the og fork


@root what is this fork, i've never heard of it

@root lol i use vivaldi and i love it, but it's also chromium based?

@john lmao it is? hahaha. well uhh i literally just learned from @katnjiapus that there's the otter browser as a continuation of how it used to be so maybe that'd be closer? at this point i had no idea browsers went this deep tbh.


@root tbh opera was a pain in the ass when it was on presto (before chromium) because it wasn't compatible with so many websites.

turns out web sites are designed for chromium because most people use chromium

@root @john Yeah it's Chromium based. Otter Browser uses QtWebKit, which is also based on the Blink-engine, but minus all the Google-parts AFAIK.

@katnjiapus @john

hmmm so you are saying it has all the good without the stinky... hmmmm... sounds too good to be true i must try it out then lmao

@root @katnjiapus eh never mind, any program that has text file for "how to install" that i don't understand get's the broom

@katnjiapus @john who doesnt love an experimental installer! (thanks btw i wouldnt have found this lmao)
