Welcome to the Vivaldi Browser forum


  • Vivaldi Team

    We like to thank you all for downloading our first Technical Preview! We are very happy to see all the great comments and feedback. We are working hard to keep improving your experience and making the Vivaldi a great browser. We are loving all the feature requests. We would love you even more if you also could be polite and concise in posting ;) Developers regularly read through the posts here. Please understand that we need to pick and choose what we pick up at a time. Our short term focus is to make current features running smoothly and finish implementing planned features. We are discussing the best way to share version updates/info on the vivaldi.net site as well as browser updates. So keep watching this forum for that! Again thank you for taking part!



  • thanks to you guys, your browser is a dream come true, well, a born-again dream ;-)



  • Thank you very much, for ressurecting my dream of amazing and useful browser again(after such a long time, where good old Opera died :-( ).
    Only one …suggestion... Maybe it would be easier for you, if you create some public bug/request tracker, it would be easier for not duplicating error reports.



  • Congratulations on getting out this technical preview. It certainly looks promising. Best regards.



  • You could do a survey with request to see what we want most ;)



  • Looking forward to seeing Vivaldi grow and become the perfect Opera 12 replacement!

    And don't feel pushed too much. It's the Intarweb. People will always be demanding and impolite. It's normal by now.

    I'll just watch it grow over the next months, maybe years, and continue to provide feedback and rants where I assume necessary. ;)

    One thing is true for sure. This is a very early version, and still looks more promising than any other contender to the post-Opera12 throne already. From what I'm seeing in German language press, it's raising quite a few eyebrows across the board already… probably the same everywhere. All the old Opera fans disappointed by other browsers, waking up now. ;)



  • Gratulerer med en nydelig nettleser med alle muligheter. Er allerede blitt en favoritt.
    Ble aldri helt fortrolig med brukergrensesnittet i Opera egentlig, med Vivaldi detter bare ting på plass av seg selv helt automatisk. Noen små bugs her og der, men dette vil kun være gjeldende i i kort tid er jeg overbevisst om.

    Takk :)

    thanks to all Vivaldi Staff, I knew you were thinking in building a new browser with that Opera feeling and u are in the right way!

    I'll suport you! Thanks to everyone, thanks Jon!



  • THANK YOU!

    It's the first version and I already love it. Excellent!



  • Wonderful first version ! Showing a lot of promise.

    A much better product than Opera 15 was to them.

    I do agree with 'majkl' though. Some searchable method of bug tracking for users so we are not bombarding you with duplicate issues.

    Thumbs Up



  • Is it possible to ask for a text file or Excel that contains all the texts contained in the browser so that we can prepare a new language?



  • Thank you very much for creating an alternative to users such as me. As an Opera user since the very earliest days (paying for the program and upgrades) until now, I am really happy to see what you are doing. I was looking for a replacement years ago for Netscape and Microsoft and Opera provided it. Then Opera's focus changed – for the worst in my opinion.

    As Opera 15 and the subsequent releases started coming out, I would try them out and then I would return to release 12.14 and 12.17 over and over. With Opera's changes, I could not bring in my bookmarks, multiple tabs, etc., etc. Right now I use Opera 12.14 x32 as my primary browser and 12.17 x64 to access several sites that require the newer coding.

    As Vivaldi matures, I really hope that I will be able to use just your browser for all of my internet needs and stop having to rely on several browsers to access some sites.

    Thanks again for your work and efforts for those of us who don't follow the herd.



  • I was almost about to migrate to SeaMonkey, because there is no other "wholesome" web suite like Opera 12 :dry: … until I heard about Vivaldi. :woohoo:

    Wish you best success.



  • I've just downloaded and installed Vivaldi on my laptop running Mint 17 64 bit and I am impressed! I've been a long time FF user from the days of it's predecessor Phoenix but have been finding FF sluggish of late. I look forward to being able to import my bookmarks and then hopefully use Vivaldi on my main computer.



  • Nice to see Opera spirit comeback :)
    I've made Seamonkey my main browser but can't wait to see which direction Vivaldi takes.

    Congratulations on the test release.
    I just grabbed it, and am looking forward to see the changes.

    I think can safely say "Don't expect an Opera replacement"
    This is something new, that will hopefully have the best features of the competition, plus features they don't think are important to users.

    In my experience browsers either let you down with security features, or are too bloated with them.
    Hopefully we can strike a sensible balance, and it will be the best at what it does.

    BTW. Did anyone else see the Vivaldi reference on this weeks "Security Now" ?

    I think its all about user choice. Browsers as opposed to almost every other software are today all about not giving users a choice. This is a strange behavior in the browser industry.

    Every piece of software is all about giving users a choice, but browsers are not. It seems they impose users what they thing is best for their daily use.

    I hope Vivaldi builds on that major flaw and emptiness. Its all about giving users a choice. A browser is a very personal piece of software. You don't want tabs on the top, move them. You don't want a search box, remove it. You want a button in your status bar, put it there, you don't want a status bar, no problem.

    Let users customize the browser so it fits their needs. Every user is different and so I think every browser will behave differently for every user. If you give users a choice, they can make their browser fit their use and not the other way around.

    Its not about building another Opera 12 clone, I hope they use Opera as their basis only but evolve much more than that and give users customization options. This is what made Opera different from others + innovation features which where not available in other browsers.

    I agree.



  • G'day Vivaldi team. Congrats on this first release.

    I can only agree with the post of Dr Flay above.
    For me, Opera was always about the flexibility provided for power users, the extensive customisation available via editing .ini files etc, and the simple fact that it used its own (Presto) engine - completely different to other browsers.
    For me, the fact that Opera was always the browser with the least (usually zero) outstanding security issues was a HUGE bonus, along with the speed at which the Opera team addressed security issues.
    For me, the built-in mail client was perfect.
    As a long-time (since v3.2) and faithful user of Opera (including the paid-for versions), I was EXTREMELY annoyed (I can't say 'pissed-off' on an open forum, can I?) by the change of direction, and have stayed with Opera 12.7 ever since.

    SIGH. Vale Opera!

    Now, I don't expect Vivaldi to be a continuation of Opera 12.7 … but if it could (in the future) include a lot of the powerful features of Opera 12 ... I'd become a very happy and faithful user of Vivaldi.
    What I see in this Technical release is looking good.
    I am, however, a bit wary of Vivaldi using the Chromium browser engine, though (if I've understood that correctly). It may mean a security flaw in Chromium will also be a security flaw in Vivaldi.

    I hope you clever people at Vivaldi can continue with the development of the Vivaldi Browser. I, for one, would be quite prepared to pay a subscription (as I did with Opera years ago) for a browser that works for me.

    Best wishes,
    OziIan



  • I think that Vivaldi browser is great so far I just wish that Ghostery and HTTPS Everywhere and Privacy Badger and other privacy extensions worked properly so that advertisers couldn't abuse me like they can when I'm not using those extensions.
