Now that firefox is officially dead, I might have to give this a look for my web development needs

I'm having downloaders remorse. Originally, I was really impressed with Vivaldi and it worked well for a time. Then is became problematic. Page rendering became slower, along with all kinds of little quirks. The "bookmarks bar" is no bookmarks bar at all, it's a drop-down menu. Adjusting font size became a problem and a number of times it just froze on me. Alas, I uninstalled it and reinstalled SlimJet as a Chrome reolacement as it has all that I need and is much more stable.

After spending quite a bit of time sorting everything out, (forgive me I'm 69 years of age), everything came together quite nicely. Anyway, Vivaldi has really surprised me. It does most everything that a browser is supposed to do and does it very well. As of now, it performs better than crappy old google and the unpredictable FireFox, which by the way, used to be pretty good. I'm using Vivaldi as my default browser and for me that's amazing considering I've been using FF for so long. I just hope the folks at Vivaldi don't screw things up like the morons who wrecked FireFox.

Am a new user to this browser, wanted to try another Chromium based browser and settled upon Vivaldi. So far, am impressed by the feature set in this browser. Is quite customizable, and have not had any problems with the browser rendering pages. Has quite the different interface from other Chrome based browsers, so am still getting used to it. Is not a dealbreaker, but still am learning the ropes.

This is now becoming a seriously good browser. Seems to be quicker than others, certainly firefox is becoming very slow these days.

Wow Ive never heard of chromium browsers loading slow, on all the machines I have including older laptops running linux, chrome is the one and Only browser that loads in under 1 second. Conversely its Firefox that takes up to a minute to load sometimes on older machines. I have never used Opera so I cant comment on its load times. Vivaldi again loads in similar fashion to Chrome, under 1 second.

It's my default browser since the beginning. Each release getting better. Seems it will be the best (as old Opera), but with zero market (also as old Opera).

When it was launched I thought, the browser would be good as the ex Opera people are behind it. Unfortunately it didn't shaped the way I thought it would. Like almost all chromium based browser it too is slow to load. Just load a previous session with 15-20 tabs, the circles never seems to stops. In fact this is a major issue with all chromium based browsers.

In terms of functionality still nothing come close to the old Opera out of the box. To get the out of the box functionality of old Opera you are free to add tons of extensions !

Anyways this is my experience with various Chromium based browsers. Your experience could be very different than mine.

I seriously feel that if the old Opera code is made open source then there exists enough development experience with people that we could have a better browser than any browser that exists today !

Definitely the spiritual successor to pre chrome Opera. Love the features and customization. Using Beta 2 and nothing but good so far. Real Opera browser is dead and this seems a worthy replacement.

Scratch what I said earlier, it's still clunky. The interface just doesn't transition smoothly and the start up time keeps increasing.

Youtube videos stutter quite a bit. It also doesn't seem to resize the player based on the window size. Instead it remains static in the center of the page.

Still got a ways to go yet, but I'm hopeful

Things are shaping up nicely. It's not as clunky as before but still a little on the slow side.

I'm really looking forward to the built in mail client becoming operational. It has other nice additions like built in notes, sidebar, etc., things that had set Opera apart. One of the best things that no other Chrome clone offers is some control over the UI. Not only are there a few more options within the settings but, you can edit the appearance much in the way you can with Firefox by way of editing it's CSS file.

It's still only in Tech Preview but has already surpassed the new Opera.
