I found a fun way to get running nice on . The algorithm works only with X11. Here it is:

$ xrandr --output <output> --scale .7x.7
$ flatpak run com.viber.Viber
$ xrandr --output <output> --scale 1x1

Now you have a viber window in nice DPI. Hate those messengers...

In fact, and are good examples of how differently single technology. Both of them are based on Qt with QML.

Telegram is fast and light. It allows you to change themes and is really feature rich. It uses up to 100 MiB on x64 system.

Now Viber. It is buggy and clunky. You have to make strange hacks to work it nice on Linux desktop. It uses 300 MiB from the start. They are working to make it better, but it's too late for me.
