Vivaldi browser

I stumbled on the Vivaldi browser today and decided to try it out as it is created by the guy who started Opera many moons ago.

https://vivaldi.com/

There is .deb and it installs just fine on Waldorf.
Early days but it looks and feels good so far (no extensive testing yet).

Re: Vivaldi browser

I love Vivaldi's Four Seasons! Also Piazzolla's Four Seasons. I got to see Mercury Baroque perform both of them not too long ago in Houston.

In any case, I'll have to give this a good ole fashioned looksie.

I like Opera, especially the newer releases.

@MartinRF:  Thank you for the info and link.  I'm going to give it a look as well.

Re: Vivaldi browser

ummm just tried it... looks out of place on KDE and the buttons on the right, where my desktop has them on the left.
It is a preview, so I'll check back in later.

Re: Vivaldi browser

Oh...my...goodness; their web site is s-s-w-w-e-e-t-t!!  I just downloaded the deb and will install shortly and take it for a spin.

@hinto:  Well, that's what you get for using KDE!  ]:D

Re: Vivaldi browser

It's a keeper IMO; using it now.  I've experienced a few minor anomalies.  What I don't like about it:

01) I don't care for the mail, contacts, and notes features.  I only want a web browser.

02) I don't care that it made itself the default browser without asking.

03) I can't figure out how to set the home page to blank.  I've done so like I've done with other browsers (about:blank), but it doesn't seem to work under Vivaldi.

04) Doesn't appear to be a way to disable the password saving feature.  I don't want to store passwords in a browser.

...and moving the window decorations buttons wink (Model T anyone? Any color as long as it's black. wink)

To be fair, it is nice.  I'll probably install it on my Mac since every once in a while FF forgets how to "swipe".

Re: Vivaldi browser

Vivaldi looks like a work in progress that still needs significant development. As it stands now, it's not for me but It'll be interesting to see what comes of it in the future.

Yes, it is currently deemed a "tech preview". It's certainly not ready for prime time, yet.

I wouldn't say that.  I've used it plenty of times since installing it yesterday and I've only encountered a problem once.  I'm enjoying using it.

This would be a deal breaker for me, even on my personal computer which only I use and have physical access to.

Re: Vivaldi browser

There's a lot of things missing right now, but so far I like what I've seen. They moved/added some commonly-used accessibility features into the bottom bar for easy reach (next to the scaler), which is a great idea.

Re: Vivaldi browser

@AnInkedSoul:  Yes, but that's like asking "Isn't CrunchBang just Debian tweaked and rebranded?"   ]:D

You don't have to save your passwords.  You just get prompted anytime you enter something in a password field.

Except that one is a whole OS and the other is just a single application.

But isn't CB just debian tweaked and rebranded?
