The site is encrypted by the entity first in the title. They say that the browser is sailing to China? I'm wondering if it's o'k we're discussing it here in the vikings' realm. Joke as it might be, what if there are changes in future? :)

For what it's worth, all things one discusses (or uploads) anywhere on the Internet should always be done with a thought given that 'other eyes' may very well be watching - now or in the future. If that creates personal risks, then perhaps one should forego that particular discussion (or upload). Just sayin' ;)

edited to add: Codes can eventually be cracked; cryptographic weaknesses can eventually be discovered and exploited; service providers can be compromised; 'permissible' comments in one era can become 'unacceptable expression' in a later era; and so on. But "data is forever" - particularly when placed onto a public network. Unless one has a deep understanding and practice of high-level encryption and knows precisely who his recipient is, one should never put onto the Internet comments that may come back to haunt one later, whether via VPN, HTTPS, or whatever... unless one is prepared to take a stand and pay the price when or if a day of unexpected disclosure arrives.

There used to be a thread for the Vivaldi browser. Has it been deleted?

This site is encrypted (and maintained?) by the "Opera AS" - which I heard, is no longer doing the browser. :sherlock:

    Opera Software ASA were still involved as far as I know, although I think it would not be bad if the Chinese team took over since they will probably work much more efficiently. Not to mention that Chinese and Russians are known to be the best programmers in the world. Just look at 360 Secure Browser for example. It has everything you could possibly want built into the web browser without the sluggishness of Vivaldi. I would love to see an Opera browser like that in the future.

    Opera AS is the one who makes the browser.

    Opera ASA is the part of Opera that was not bought by the Chinese consortium. They are the Holding that owns AdColony, Surfeasy, Skyfire, etc.

    They are no longer responsible for making the browser.

      O.O So why did I remember it the other way round?? :confused: :doh:

      Tufuzay, would you mind going to Hell with your Russians!?
      Emigrant Russians, on the other hand, would do, but those would usually try to assimilate. Please do not confuse the Great Under-the-Sky doing business with the post-Stalin shit of a country we have become here. The Chinese have retained their brains while we haven't. By far.
