    Nothing i have tried will go through the executable part, after dealing, I have done many, but they will not go ahead and RUN on my Linux mint 11, which is on a 2011 dell vostro 3350 w/ intel core i3.

    The Linux runs fine, but i cannot get a browser to replace firefox (which is refusing to play youtube). I am not a tech kind of owner, either a close friend set up the whole Linux thing a few yrs ago for me. I know of no one around here, in Thailand, who is savvy with Linux; most people here use win 7, 8, 10 etc or Mac.
    Any ideas ?

    Chrome, Opera, and Vivaldi are closed-source.

      Tell me about it! I don’t understand why people still believe Opera is opensource. I just discovered it the hard way. After I downloaded a 400 MB file of pure garbage from Git.

    Chrome is NOT open source, remove it from the list. This is a tech website without techs…

    Opera is not open source too
    http://www.operasoftware.com/press/faq -> Is Opera planning to open source its browser?

    I think what you mean is that Chromium is based off Google Chrome.
    Saying that Google Chrome is based off Chromium is pure misleading.
