@Pesala said in Interesting benchmark test by one of our users!:
in these days of broadband the differences have become insignificant.
I have a very fast internet connection most of the time (7ms), but sometimes it goes all slow. An internet speed test shows everything is as fast as usual, but it takes ages to load all web pages. That's when I run browser benchmarks. The last time I did this, after the problem went away, Vivaldi came out on top. Usually Google Chrome wins, followed jointly by Chromium and Vivaldi coming in at a close second, and Firefox coming in Paddy last.
Google Chrome: 87
Firefox: can't remember exactly - just shy of 60
I don't have Opera.
When my internet connection is working the way it's supposed to, I probably wouldn't be able to tell the difference in browser speeds. Nonetheless, it's great to see Vivaldi come out on top. Go Vivaldi!

@Steffie Now do you see the problems Vivaldi has created?
V offers the user so many features that sometimes it boggles the imagination.
A user can keep it really simple or they can go whole hog. I use only a few features but they are all I need.
Then there are those use a ton of features. What it all comes down to is how the user wants it. Each and every
one of us have our very own "personal" Vivaldi.
Vivaldi...just about the most perfect browser there is.
I know, I have already shared MUO articles at times. The first I have even shared and commented on G +
As Vivaldi is updated, positive reports accumulate on various computer pages. In some it is even named as the best browser of 2018.
isn't the email parser the same as the website parser?
It probably is very similar, of course.
you can easily configure O12.18 to open mail links in your default browser
To be clear, I’m awaiting Vivaldi’s M3 and hope it’s integrated into the browser.
But I wouldn’t recommend having the full Opera Classic suite mainly for the emails/feeds/news to then spend time securing this 5-years-old sitting target (or, as suggested, completely working around it).
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
@ornorm said in Nice article:
@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
