a new, customizable web browser Vivaldi is a new web browser from the original creators of the Opera browser. Vivaldi is based on Chromium and designed to be streamlined and straightforward to use. The browser is designed for power users and offers a high level of customization options. You can choose the location of your tabs and address bar, set keyboard hotkeys for common tasks and much more. In addition to the standard browser features, Vivaldi offers several innovative improvements. You can use Tab Stacks to group multiple open tabs into one, resulting in a less cluttered interface. The Adaptive Browsing feature makes the GUI color scheme act like a Chameleon and adapt the colors of the current website. You can also take notes and add screen shots of web pages while browsing, store attachments and add URLs to easily organize and locate it later. You can open web panels in the sidebar and read news, follow social media or chat with your friends, while using the main browser window separately. Copyright Snapfiles.com

The real Opera browser 4 stars by realbull2009250 Apr 30, 2016 (Read all my 60 reviews)
Since Opera dropped their own Presto browsing engine for Chrome's Blink engine, things haven't been exactly the same. If you're a fan of that Presto engine browser then you should try Vivaldi which is made by former Opera developers who want to bring back that same experience. While this is the first 1.0+ release it is not a fully fleshed out browser, but it is very good for a 1.0+ release. It ran and started up fast on my fast Windows 7 64bit laptop with no problem, faster than Opera and FireFox. It feels really light and fast like the old Presto engine Opera. The one feature that I really loved about the Presto engine Opera was the tab stack and split window view. Now it is in Vivaldi! You can stack tabs and then view several windows simultaneously. And you can add extensions from the Chrome website and NOT a separate proprietary extension website like Opera. The only weak point I found is that certain options aren't added yet, but surely as the browser develops they will be included. If you are using Chrome or a Chrome based browser then definitely try Vivaldi. show Review details
Unacceptable 1 stars by LowStrung Apr 09, 2016 (Read all my 13 reviews)
Vivaldi, while touting unique features, is the worst browser I've ever tried. Starting it up on my fast Windows 7 laptop took much longer than even the latest bloated Firefox. Same with the menus, especially the settings dialog: They seemed to take forever to pop up. I found customizability quite limited, compared with even very old versions of FF. There were no fine adjustments of the user interface, which looked pretty crude, no matter which of the presets I chose. Also, every time I tried to open a new blank tab it presented me with the speed dials, a feature for which I have no use whatsoever. All I wanted was a blank tab, or perhaps a new tab with my home page. There was no obvious way to shut off JavaScript for certain sites, and I couldn't find anything like FF's familiar "about:config" for advanced settings. The trash can icon at the top of the screen, which I assume was for clearing the browsing history, was very little help, because there were no details as to which items in the browsing history would be cleared; the cache? The history? Cookies? Delete what? You'll have noticed that this review is written in the past tense, because I uninstalled Vivaldi and won't be using it again. show Review details
