@cross1: I'm with you, as I was reading I really liked what Neeva has to offer, but that monthly fee put me off. I'm more than happy to contribute to Neeva, but at $60 a year is a bit costly (adding all the other expenses we have in our daily lives).
@colebantam , yes, and another dozens more. There are always risks in the network and no browser is 100% shielded, there are always security holes that can be exploited.
Security depends on 50% of the user himself
In all those cases they gained their market dominance before all that stuff was revealed and people no longer had a real choice, so... The devil you know etc.
Every new business has to answer the question: What am I bringing to the market that others aren't already providing?
@ayespy: No not 'end of story', merely one (flawed) way of viewing the story. Partners/advertisers will always look to independent sources of information such as statcounter to determine how many users there are.
Having a billion unique userID's means nothing by itself, it is how much browsing they do that they care about. That the people tasked with developing Vivaldi do not understand such a basic concept and the contempt they (including you) show for rational arguments against user tracking and 'phone home' behaviour is a major impediment to the browsers success
[Tabs] Opening and closing tabs slow with many tabs: work in progress (VB-80215)
👀 Nice! Looking forward towards more improvements. It would definitely be useful.
Also thanks for VB-82079.
There's only one regression left which bugs me. Namely, since the version 4.0, new tabs created from a standalone tab will not create a tab stack, even though in regards to the settings they should. Prior to 4.0 it was working fine, but since then it stopped. I think it is that bug, it apparently is related to having multiple windows open https://forum.vivaldi.net/topic/65580/as-tab-stack-with-related-tab-does-not-work-when-there-are-multiple-windows
Just in case, I reported it as VB-83186.
Anyway, good job. Keep up the good work! 👍
@luetage Obviously, no one can see the server-side code. That would be a huge security risk - and it's not anyone's business anyway. No cloud-based service publishes their server-side code. That would be insane.
@pesala: I have the same Vivaldi version and have no forum extension, yet I do not see any toolbar 😞 (Unfortunately I cannot send a screenshot of this 😉 )
But this is a problem for another time 😃
(Interesting, on Vivaldi for Android there is a toolbar, so here you go)
@roguescholar said in Why you should replace Windows 7 with Linux:
setting up any kind of dual-boot configuration and you're running a UEFI system, this is the only way to go about it, trust me.
I'm writing on behalf of my dual-boot Tower, after she recently read your post. In no way is she decrying potential benefits of rEFInd; she does not know, either way, as she's never used it. She did however ask me to respectfully challenge your assertion that
this is the only way to go about it, trust me
My Tower happily boots back & forth between my ArchLinux KDE & SparkyLinux Cinnamon systems, using nothing but humble grub & os-prober. Each OS was installed as UEFI+GPT, & i chose to let the Arch bootloader "dominate". My Tower graciously accepted this arrangement.
Here's the last two lines of her /etc/default/grub, which let the !=magic occur:
### guigirl: Appended the following so that Arch grub will see my Sparky boot:
In your initial paragraph you explicitly mentioned windoze, so she did wonder if maybe unspoken in your second paragraph was an assumption that anyone wanting to multi-boot would "naturally" want windoze + Linux. However your actual words are so firm, with your use of
, that it seems you really do mean any & all forms of multiboot irrespective of OS. In that case, my Tower begs to disagree with your bold statement. You don't even have to trust me; this post was written without any BIOS. 😇
@wolfee Probably you used the window background image feature.
Said feature got removed when they added the option of having the same image in both speed dial and tab bar.
Which means that now, the only image that can appear on the tab bar is your speed dial's wallpaper. To enable this, check "Transparent tab bar" on Settings > Themes.
Also, I don't get it what you're talking about the image not moving with the window, but try changing how vivaldi scales the wallpaper on Settings > Themes > "Image position" under Background
