64-bit only currently, but runs fine on Wheezy.

Early pre-release of the Vivaldi browser is now available in both 32-bit and 64-bit. The flat UI sucks (as do they all), but it looks like it will present an interesting alternative for power users (which as always the target audience of the original Opera browser).

Speaking of which: just to clarify, this browser originates with the folks who originally started Opera, back in the day; it is in no way related to the current Opera browser (a good thing, IMO).

vivaldi is freeware so not my cup of tea, but the opera troubles did spur another free browser that I use on Dragora. fifth-browser http://fifth-browser.sourceforge.net/ still alpha but functional, light. Well, certainly lighter than the big browsers. It's also fltk so suited Dragora-tiny (no-gtk/qt).

My main browser is Seamonkey I find the interface much nicer than iceweasel/icecat I use chatzilla so that's a bonus and the only addons are a fork/tweak of little-monkey theme https://addons.mozilla.org/en-us/seamon ... seamonkey/ so it works with the latest version and tree-view for chatzilla https://github.com/hagabaka/chatzilla-p ... annel-tree.

I also tend to install Netsurf and Dillo built with enable ssl and links that I use with the -g option.

I'm primarily a Chrome user (and Google user in general- Google Drive, Docs, etc. ) so that works well for me, but when I'm just surfing the web I like to use elinks. I know its a little (alot) more primitive then most people use, but it does have tabbed browsing, bookmarks, history, etc. Just no pictures/videos :wink:
