Default Chromium for Windows/Mac/Linux will end

Well, just as I started to feel good about Vivaldi browser, Google announces it's withdrawing support for apps on Windows, Mac, and Linux.

From Vivaldi Forum

Quote:
Apps are apps. Extensions are extensions. Extensions are unaffected by the deprecation of the apps. If Chrome somehow limits the app API that ships with Chromium so that it will only run Chrome-hosted apps, we're kind of stuck with that. If they simply cease to support non-hosted apps but don't blackball them, then they will still run in Vivaldi.

Apps are basically just web pages. For those with special built-in settings or functions, Vivaldi may eventually craft its own API to support them. But as a rule, things dropped by chrome will not be practical to maintain in Vivaldi.

There are already some extensions built by Vivaldi devs and testers, they just aren't advertised as such, because they run on Chrome, Opera etc. as well. One way or another, Vivaldi will always seek to have the most options and the greatest range of choice of any browser, but the Vivaldi philosophy seeks to build as much of that in to the browser as possible, to maximize efficiency so that extension bloat can be controlled.

Not Chromium as in the browser. Just the apps you can add to the browser.

As I understand it the advancement HTML 5 has made renders those apps unnecessary.

By the way, on Linux Chrome is called Chromium. Some small differences, mainly the update mechanism and the branding. It is supposed to be the development version but I don't know if that is really the case anymore.
