Do You know Web 3.0? Try Vivaldi
Hei, cat, I would like "hear" some impressions but the most exclusively possible within you own knowledge and at your own words, about Web 3.0.
Tell us in words not very specialized, within language of "more general use", please and if possible. I am noticing differences on various layouts of an increasing quantity of sites.
I don't know if the very limited knowledge of my own perceived something and at least next to what is occurring.
In this limitation, I have the impression that there are now two "platforms" (let me say this way) for displaying and download web pages. One Microsoft, another, no-Microsoft. If so, is it only for Windows OS?
Tell us in what aspects do you think this may favor Viv. And other aspects, if any, which may act on the contrary way.
At the end, if you want put some technical links about, please do it.
A hard task I am trying to deliver to you. And, above all, gratuitous! I wait I am not abusing excessively. Thanks - and apologies! - in advance.
The article comes from a discussion with an obvious FLOSS taliban, which states that he does not use Vivaldi, because it is a proprietary soft and also spyware, putting this article as evidence.
Naturally I have explained the fallacy of this article and explained that if he wants privacy, that he only uses TOR, then he is only spied on by the NSA and the FBI.
Apart also that according to this same page Mozilla is even worse

@pesala Thanks for the tip! Vivaldi is a real treasure quest.
Edit : just tried with the spacebar... Amazing!!!!!
Yes, I use Vivaldi right from the start and I still find new things.
What I do use a lot is the rocker function with the mouse to move forward and backward in the navigation history
Thanks everyone for your insightful posts!
We've decided to create more than one story based on your feedback, and in fact, the first one is already published on the blog. 😍 Take a look here: https://vivaldi.com/blog/10-tab-management-tricks/
More to come!
I am not a member of Reddit, so cannot comment there.
I used to check benchmark tests regularly on Futuremark Peacekeeper, comparing Opera 12 to other browsers.
However, in these days of broadband the differences have become insignificant. Honestly, who can tell the difference between 300 milliseconds and 500 milliseconds?
What matters most for fast browsing is customisability. If I can arrange my menus, toolbars, and shortcuts exactly how I wish, browsing becomes so much more efficient.
Customised Opera Link Context Menu
Default Vivaldi Link Context Menu
By removing items I never use, hitting those that I do need becomes quicker. Adding commands to launch a URL in another browser saves several seconds for Copy URL, launch other browser, and paste & go in the other browser.
When you can save 5 seconds for that, who cares about saving a few milliseconds for loading a page? Heavy pages that take tens of seconds to load can be loaded in the background while I continue reading or whatever.
Home user version is still free to use. And promoting the Windows version is certainly worth doing. As far as I know, adding a program to their available applications costs nothing, their money is made from their paid version, which offers more options than just installation.
@pesala Yeah, I thought so too, but it's wrong. The number of community members is equivalent to the number of accounts on vivaldi.com. But not all of them activate their account (log in) to forum.vivaldi.net, that's why there is a discrepancy. You are taking the number from the forum, Vivaldi is taking the number from the main site.
@gwen-dragon said in Website would like to show notifications:
@jj2016 If the page is open, click the globe/lock in addressbar
For Notifications select "Always block"
This option was already checked, but I clicked site settings> notifications and moved the slider to 'blocked'.
Solved. Thanks anyway.
