Anyone Using Vivaldi Browser

Anyone using Vivaldi? Man it is so customisable it’s not funny. I know have a Surf type browser with a heap more function

No tab bar, bookmark bar or anything like that, I get a full screen browser.

Now I have it just how I want it, it is reminding me more of the Opera of old.

Updates and upgrades to the browser are regular. They are working hard to make it worth using.

Have you tried it with YouTube or other videos at all? Was really buggy with that when I tried it. Wasn’t much use for watching the sports highlights.

Good browser otherwise.

I’ve watched a couple of YouTube vids. Seems ok so far. It doesn’t like Imgur for some reason but most other sites seem okay so far.

Got the email about a new release - vivaldi webmail is actually pretty good if anyone is looking for a mail client; I don’t think it’s tied to gmail.

Installed the snapshot; pretty good, playing video.

Separate option; not sure if integrates into the browser yet.
Try to be privacy oriented like proton mail. I’ve pretty much replaced gmail with vivaldi.

Have they added syncing bookmarks between devices yet? If I remember well, it was in early testing when I tried Vivaldi, months ago.

This is the main reason I stick to Chromium. Probably I still will, at least as long as my Chromebook is alive, but I’ll install Vivaldi again out of curiosity.

There are a few of reasons I don’t use Chromium

  1. It doesn’t scale nice with hidpi, I have to change my GTK font size to make the tab fonts readable but that inceases the size everywhere else.
  2. Too much browser, not enough web page i.e. I like just tabs only.
  3. It’s Chromium.

Well, I use Google drive, photos, docs, calendar and keep on the daily basis, so Chromium is the natural choice.
