I feel really moved to see all this effort and to use a browser again which is based on the old Opera idea. I feel picked up, cared and heard. I hope all you employees will get the effort of this and that Vivaldi will live and evolve in the next decade.
I'm glad you like it
Man, I'm really moved by this thing. By all its pre-releaseness. I've deleted all bookmarks and by accident deleted the whole speed dial. Then I recognized the upper "+" button at the top of the (now empty) Speed Dial page. :ohmy: How efficient. Then I digged deeper in the bookmarks system. Oh boy, this is gold. "Use as speeddial". Why have I missed this? The whole bookmarks page is the best idea your competitors never had. And it's an old idea. And it's just recognizable, clearly arranged and practical. And then I downloaded my first file and saw the download panel. That was the moment, I felt back home.
I wrote it at reddit: What's my favorite feature so far? My answer: The whole approach. The chuzpah to say "All your Firefoxes, Chromes and Safaris are not good enough and we want to pick up the nerds that are a bit different".
Yeah, I know it's not fair - so many people and webbrowser projects exist with the same manner but this here is the freakin' old Opera spirit. They have worked and developed a dozen months and provide us now a chewy, bedazzling, modern, clunky, old-timed, feels-like-home, feels like mothers womb web-browser and I love it.
Give me all your bugs, give me all your functions. Give me all your love and I will give it back.
"A Browser for our Friends." –- can't be more clear than that.
It was literally heartbreaking to me when Opera 15 was released. I felt sad, lost... 15 years of Opera. It was the internet for many of us. It took me months to get FireFox into a half-way usable state, when I finally gave up on Opera about a year ago.
When I read the news about Vivaldi this week. Awesome just awesome. I hadn't realized it was still being worked on... as there hadn't been anything in the press since that reference back in 2013/2014 that Jon was going to revive the community, and bring us a new browser.
