  • The Current Performance Of Virgl3D, Future Plans

    Last week at XDC2018 in Spain, Elie Tournier of Collabora presented on the current state of the Virgl effort for allowing OpenGL acceleration provided by a host's system within a QEMU/VirtIO-GPU virtual machine environment.

  • Sync your teeth into power browser Vivaldi's largest update so far [Ed: This is a proprietary Web browser and there's no reason to use it]

    This week the Vivaldi browser received its biggest update, adding secure sync across devices and making many operations speedier.

    Vivaldi supremo Jon von Tetzchner, who co-founded Opera, the browser which invented many features taken for granted today, told us encrypted sync was the most requested feature. But it's one of around 1,500 tweaks and improvements to Vivaldi 2.0. Version 1.0 was launched three years ago.
