Title: Anyone using Vivaldi browser?
Post by: Lee2 on June 07, 2017, 06:33:50 PM
If so what is your opinion of it?

Vivaldi is a freeware, cross-platform web browser developed by Vivaldi Technologies, a company founded by Opera Software co-founder and former CEO Jon Stephenson von Tetzchner and Tatsuki Tomita. Wikipedia https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vivaldi_(web_browser)

Good luck to them.

On the plus side:
A good solution for multi tab and improved session handling is a useful with room in the market for it.
If its new code it will be a fresh start and likely decent or better quality.

Negative:
Most R&D work done in high cost area.
difficult to get traction vs the established solutions.

I've practically tried almost every browser available and speed tested them all against Google Chrome and Slim Jet, an off shoot to Chrome and IIMO was faster than all of them.
If Vivaldi is an offshoot of Opera, it may not be as fast as Chrome or Slim Jet.
I've been usung Chrome as my default browser, because my Slim Jet browser seem to have slowed down a bit. When I get the chance, I'll check out Vivaldi and do a speed comparison.
