I mainly use opera and firefox now and then. Now I am trying out vivaldi.
Would love to see a power saver and data saver feature included sometime in the future.
I enjoy the customisation in Vivaldi. Page loading is a bit slow and a hot startup is also not as quick as it can be
The truth is I love Vivaldi (my favorite composer), and while I was looking for a new browser, I keep going back. I've been here since, no IE or Google or firefox. In the 90's I was using netscape. AND I use duckduckgo as my search engine.
Someone need to pay the bills, very valid point. I am really happy of the direction Vivaldi is going. As a IT / Business consultant, my company spend some money every years different type of software subscriptions or license fees. As a contractor for a large range of different clients I am more than happy to pay for my software use as long as it gives me something back. Free is good, but someone need to pay the bills. I am not asking for an invoice from Vivaldi - on the other hand there is nothing like a free lunch.
If the options are adverts or subscription. Happy to pay.
Adaway is the more elegant solution, but not everyone is willing/able to root their device. An adblock option for a browser makes sense. Opera made a fine choice of implementing it by default for their android browser. I'm actually using it as we speak, although adblock is turned off since I use adaway…. @luetage said in Android App:
i was originally hoping for mobile version. over time i had doubts that the parts of the browser i like/use would work the same visually and interactively on mobile. what are everyones thoughts on what vivaldi could do better/different/easier than other mobile browsers.
I think the thing to note about brave is they build it on electron.
A straight port of chrome would've gave them far more functionality, but it would potentially introduce new cruft when considering features like user privacy. Using electron essentially gives them an easier build platform, but it also forces them to build more functionality themselves. Github and other contributors have basically did all the work of making chromium into a clay you can mold into your own project, but they did that by stripping out most of the things that make chromium a usable browser.
Google actually did a significant part of making it possible to use chromium as a backend by modeling their own content api after the one in webkit.
I don't believe it's necessarily a bad tradeoff to build a browser on Electron. I just think that it just means less work in some areas, and more work in others. For example. I don't think a minimal browser like MIN would work as well in concept if they had to build on significant parts of the chromium source code just to get a working prototype.
I just like to point out Vivaldi's pdf printing (rendering) still takes for minutes, and chrome browser's rendering is much faster. Opera was very fast pdf rendering and I am not sure why this happens to Vivaldi.
When I print via pdf mode, maybe due to the background command operation,
I cannot click on any links on any other tabs, and
I cannot scroll any page on any tabs.
It takes for a minute to preview and another minute until actually saving the pdf.
It gets longer when the pages get multi pages as you assume.
Maybe power users do not use often the pdf printing than bookmarking, but I do have sometime like to save pages at a document base, pdf.
Thank you for your kind attention if possible.
Always appreciate Vivaldi community and development team.
Since my bookmark list is very long, so I had tough time to move a link from one folder to the other within the bookmark manager. But as you pointed out, if I open both bookmark manager and side panel with at the same time, I can drag and drop neatly.
