Good but too many updates 4 stars by henerey773 Jan 18, 2024 (Read all my 37 reviews)
If you're like me and want to update your software before it interrupts your workflow with its auto-updating 'feature', you'll soon find the updates are coming too fast. A few every month. Otherwise a pretty good browser. show Review details
No longer supports win 78 4 stars by Klatuu Feb 23, 2023 (Read all my 29 reviews)
You can install this if you are running Windows 10 or 11, but if you had it installed on Windows 7 or 8, updates are no longer supported. Overall it's a feature packed browser. You can choose how to install it (simple or complete etc) and take it from there. Probably more features than you'll ever use! show Review details
Excellent! 5 stars by AllanHigdon Mar 19, 2022 (Read all my 3 reviews)
This Web Browser is the only one for me. Its support for people who prefer the keyboard cannot be topped. show Review details

Great browser 4 stars by Mog89R Oct 04, 2016 (Read all my 4 reviews)
I have two browsers Opera 12.18 and Vivaldi. I keep old Opera because of its email management. If Vivaldi managed my emails I would have only one browser. It amazes me how customable is Vivaldi and I like that. I would not regard it a slow browser show Review details
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 16 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
