@guigirl said in I cheat on Vivaldi with Firefox 😇:
This post is a presage of apparently impending behavioural change heading to vanilla Firefox.
vanilla Firefox? 😲
Don't you think it's too extreme? Maybe FF-B would be much better choice? 😄
@hebgbs said in Bitcoin homepage:
IDK what you mean by bitcoin when Brave's only crypto I know of is Basic Attention Token. If there's something independent of Brave you accessed in the brave browser, then you should be able to also access it from Vivaldi.
Not to offend anyone, but if this person didn’t know which browser they were using, do you expect them to know which cryptocurrency they were using?

My hot take: Don't chase money, chase features. Vivaldi has plenty of them to spare, and lots of things Brave cannot do if you're willing to give a toss about it once more and really check it out.
@guigirl , I use Vivaldi, my other browsers with Blink, Gecko and WebKit are there only for test, to see when I have problems in a page, if it only Vivaldi or a problem of the page. For this purpose it is quite irrelevant that they are obsolete like SeaMonkey, Pale Moon.or others.
@ayespy , It don't work in a Wordprocessor or Textpad, there it switched to normal line to line scroll. But normally I had it desactivated, because I need it only ocassionally, I don't do much offline and the scroll for normal use is smooth enough for me.
@code3 , Blink was developed on the basis of WebKit, because by then it was better adapted to new web formats.The best example is to see the comparisons of Chromium browsers with, for example, Safari in compatibility and performance.Perhaps this is why KDE has not continued with SeaMonkey for a long time, seeing the limitations that it implies
@eggcorn , I agree with this. I think that the EU need to go independient of US Big Tech with own alternatives, but there a only few browser projects in the EU or Europe in general, that can compete. Vivaldi and UR are los most advanced in this aspect, others are discontinued, not very stable or outdated.
A lot of work is needed in this cuestion.
@code3 , to see when Apple finally accepts that we're in 2021 and Safari with its old WebKit gradually takes over to Internet Explorer.
Worse, to require others to use this engine that is already beginning to embarrass.
Although WebKit is the predecessor of Blink, this was 10 or more years ago
@ayespy , I also see it as problematic. Well, it was an idea, but I'm sure Jon doesn't feel like talking to a Chinese company either, I imagine.
But anyway, it doesn't stop us from taking any other function as inspiration.
Same with the UR browser, which also has some things I would like to have in Vivaldi.
Adaptivebee is also a small company, but French, with which it is perhaps possible to contact.
@kanishknishar I used Opera 5.0 before Vivaldi, from 2001 when it was recommended to me for its built-in email client. After Opera 15 was released, I kept on using Opera 12.18 until Vivaldi Technical Preview was released in 2015.
I continued using Opera 12.18 for my email until Vivaldi's client was released, but now I only use Vivaldi. I keep Firefox installed for trouble-shooting purposes.
@eggcorn , I don't speak about Palemoon and a few others, that still exists, I speak from projects which a simpe forks without a strong community, this will disappear very fast like others.
In a strong browsermarket, projects with a good developement and significant difference from others are dead born childs like the most in the last years.
It's a harsh world for browsers which are in the last % of the marketshare, single developers and small companies without a good community can't survive, as I say, like a small fruit store next to a hypermarket.
Look on the web, which browsers appear in the comparisons, apart from Chrome, Edge, Safari, Opera, Firefox, Brave and from time to time also Vivaldi (more and more), it is this that sooner or later breaks the nape of others.
@guigirl said in I *want* to believe her, but...:
To my eyes it seems innocent enough, albeit full of management-speak of a type that usually risks me breaking out in hives.
I hardly know a thing about the new CEO. But I lost a lot of trust in the Mozilla Foundation, after Quantum. Not so much because of Quantum itself. But because the page that came up on Firefox after the update, the page that was supposed to tell me about the update to Firefox: It was just a page full of flowery language that told me nothing!
That says something about the character of the Mozilla Foundation. It tells me that they care more for style then substance. That they want to look good, they want to look pretty. They don't actually want to be good.
