Vivaldi supports Mastodon to free social networks from Big Tech

Vivaldi Browser supports Mastodon to free online communication from the stranglehold of Big Tech.

The Oslo-based company became the first browser to integrate today Mastodon – just a few weeks after launch its own server On the federated social network.

The moves are intended to accelerate Mastodon’s adoption while drawing more users to Vivaldi’s privacy-focused browser. They arrive amid a backlash against Silicon Valley’s closed platforms and lock-in algorithms, which spread deeper into the mainstream after Elon Musk bought Twitter.

Since the richest person in the world took over the bird app, Mastodon’s active user base has skyrocketed 300,000 to 2.6 million – a growth that was difficult to accommodate.

The sudden influx has overloaded many servers (aka instances) on the federated social network, rendering them offline and overwhelming the volunteers who maintain them. Vivaldi’s instance has the capacity to relieve some of the tension.

“We wanted to lend a hand.

Jon von Tetzchner, the co-founder of both Vivaldi and the Opera browser, told TNW the plans were first discussed more than five years ago.

“To be honest, we should have joined then, but when we saw the influx of users to Mastodon and we saw that some servers were struggling, we wanted to lend a hand,” he said.

Von Tetzchner also hopes to lower the threshold for entering Mastodon.
