I'm not 100% sure if I can put this here, but I was wondering if there is anyone else using the new Browser Vivaldi?

It's currently in beta and I've been using it for a couple of weeks now. I haven't had any real issues using it so far. I do really like how the browser is compatible with Google Chromes extensions.

Here's a link to it if anyone is interested in trying it out:

I love to try out new browsers. I'll try it out.

Don't break the silence. There is nothing to save.

I tried it. It was nice, but it didn't take my fancy. I recommend other people try it out!

I don't like the look, but otherwise I think it's fine. I'll recommend it to a few friends to find out what they think.

I love the features that it has, paticuarly the command pallete. I don't think that it's ready to replace Firefox Developer Edition but I will probably give it a whirl again when it's out of beta.

I'm loving it, I have replaced it as my standard browser.

I have reverted to my old browser now due to bugs when I have two windows of it open, which due to my set-up including 2 screens isn't very convenient.

Wow, it must've improved since I've last used it. I'll check it out later.

Looks like another proprietary Chromium fork like Opera and it even has the speed dial, not really something I'd concider using.

considering it's compatible with most chromium extensions most if not all adblockers should work

A bit curious relating to privacy.

Here's a reddit link regarding the privacy of the consumer regarding Vivaldi Browser:

https://www.reddit.com/r/privacy/comment...i_browser/

A bit outdated, however, with answers from 8 months ago. Creator or developer, not sure, details on leaking information by default, but it could be resolved by now.

I wouldn't trust it because it is closed sourced and also seems hevily derived from chrome which is nutorious for violating numerious privacy issues.

Privacy is important, but what's more important is the fact that the UI design of this is so jagged and blocky it feels like it's cutting my eyes

Yeah. Opera used to be something.
Now, I don't really see anything I miss on IceCat.

I tried it out a few times for a spin, the existing customizable features are pretty nice but if really wants to be a Opera 2.0 electric boogaloo, it need all that internet suite stuff Opera had, like a email client, irc and a torrent client.

Those things were great in Opera,  but kinda bloated in the memory  usage, if they found out a way to have all of that in a resource efficient  matter,  i would switch  to Vivaldi  in an heartbeat!

Now, that you mentioned it, I wonder what way would I prefer.
Having one browser for everything, or multiple applications, each for specialized protocols.

And I would probably prefer multiple applications.
If browser implements everything there's a good chance I simply won't like let's say it's torrent client.
Or even if if's fine, other option can simply be better and give me more control.

It looks well meh, I currently use Palemoon which lately has had some issues. I'll probably give it a try hope I can change the way the UI looks though.

Seems great.... I doubt that it will be more greater than Chrome.

Perhaps not, but take into account the Chrome is made and owned by Google, a multimillion dollar company, that is one of the, if not the, biggest name in the Internet, that ships Google Chrome with Chrome OS, and all Android phones. Even some Linux distributions that are completely separate use it as a main browser.

Personally, if the developer tools are anywhere close to as high tier as Google Chromes, even going as far as allowing the viewing of Websocket frames (unlike some other browsers that shant be named *cough*Firefox*cough*) without the use of a plugin, I will definitely be swapping Google Chrome. I absolutely hate GC.

vivaldi is based on chromium, so anything in chromium should work in vivaldi as well.
