Hi, we installed Vivaldi alongside Chromium and Firefox on our public terminals, because we believe in the freedom of choice - also on the Internet! Our public library is already open for everyone, no matter race, sex, age or political preferences. And the same goes for the Internet - it should be available for everyone, for the same reasons -and it still mostly is, at least for now - even if the pressure from the commercial services are getting higher and higher (centralized social networks, network neutrality, censorship, and so on).. So I think it's a natural fit - free browsers and free access to knowledge, online or by written books - it should be available for everyone, all over the world!
I was always an Opera user, and bemoaned the decisions they made to drop so many of the treasured tools I loved so much. I am so glad you have brought these back to us, something as simple as a browser that can take notes in the sidebar makes all the difference in the world! Thank you.
@QuHno said in The Web: 30 years of history, challenges and change:
The 2 longest treads in the old my.opera forums:
Color management and encryption for mail.
I was one of these people who wanted to get a enhanced Opera M2 (more privacy by PGP/MIME and S/MIME). And encryption never came.
As a consequence I dumped Opera M2 and switched to Thunderbird (Linux) and The Bat! (Windows).
When I fists started on the web I had only Lynx at home. At work we could choose between Netscape (?) or IE3.
Personally I used Lynx/Netscape ate home until I found Opera in the mid/late 90s.
Took to FF as a backup browser as O was not always recognized.
I have been using Vivaldi since its first Alpha version (before the Technical Release) and am still here checking the Snapshots.
Must occasionally use FF for banking as the security Extension my bank wants me to use will not support Chromium browsers that are not chrome
To all the teams and support staff; Great work and some great achievements over the past years!
Workaround for the search-field autosuggest bug (which I doubt will be backported to 2.3): when you see the autosuggest item that you want, select it so that it's brought up to the search field, but then add a space to it before hitting enter.
@colemanrik Don't be worried, you're just seeing one of the preinstalled bookmarks
from resources\vivaldi\default-bookmarks\en-US.json and en-AU.json
"title": "Lower price - Hotels"
Just remove the bookmarks you don't need, or even remove Include bookmarks from settings/address bar/address field drop-down menu.
Preinstalled bookmarks and the few search engines partnering with Vivaldi are for now the only revenue for Vivaldi.
