Quantum

Works great for me none of my addons were affected, Lastpass, UBlock Origin, Stumbleupon and yes not such a memory hog anymore. Although at 64Gb was never a real issue anyway. I don't mind the square tabs either... nice and clean so thumbs up from me!. Video Download Helper is working on Linux Mint 18.2, not tried on Windows 10 yet but should be ok?

Hacking!

Hacking is illegal no matter which way yo look at it (ok white hacking systems when a company ask you to find vulnerabilities in their systems is fine), However the way they did that reeks of well either jealousy or revenge.

Bring it on

I managed to get Crysis and Trackmania Nations Forever running through wine (Karmic 9.10 x64) from Vista Ultimate x64.
