Vivaldi 1.3 in Windows 10 is slower than in Linux



  • Vivaldi 1.3 in Windows 10 is slower than in Linux. Is there a reason? Both are 64 bit.

    Both are 64 bit.

    what makes you say V is faster in linux? what do you mean by slow?
    testing V at browserbench.org it says it is much faster on Windows 10.
    Or maybe you are talking about the UI?

    I use Vivaldi 1.3 in Windows 10 in a Windows laptop (8GB RAM)and also Vivaldi 1.3 as a stand-alone (self-contained) app in Linux in a Linux laptop (3GB RAM). It the visual feeling I'm talking about, not tests using a specialised application. I find web pages (same ones) opening faster in Linux laptop than in the Windows 10 laptop, opening them simultaneously. The Linux laptop is more than 6 years old, while the Windows laptop was bought 9 months ago. Win10 boots up much faster than any Linux distros I have. I found Vivaldi few days ago. I wrote about my Vivaldi experience in Linux in "Vivaldi for Linux" section.



  • I find Vivaldi to be smoother in Windows than in Linux.

    For the most part, performance differences are unnoticeable. But for scrolling, Windows is much smoother.

    I find that pages don't hang as much on Linux. On Windows I get a lot of pages that have a similar issue to the old Opera 12 Never Stops Loading bug.



  • Have you tried it on the new Windows 10 Anniversary Update? I find Vivaldi even faster now since updating.
