TCP/IP doesn’t care what operating system you use. Viasat works with Linux and another other operating system that uses IP addresses.

A good question for DavidBrowserGuy!  Any update on this or when we will see a 64bit ver for Windows?

I doubt they will. When i discussed it with them via email they were at a loss at how to make self auto-updating. I explained how google used multiple distro specific repos and provided distro specific packages. I also pitched a few distro agnostic packages like flatpak and snap. They seemed to be at a loss.

You might be able to run it under Wine.  I can run Microsoft's internet explorer under Wine and haven't tried others but don't know why it wouldn't work.

No. Chrome for windows has a mostly garbage rating in wine, it's reasonable to have the same expectation for the viasat browser.
