New User say hello wanting verification



  • Hello I am a 70 year old new guy . Just found Vivaldi couple days ago.and converting 10 computers from different platforms. Came from firefox,palemoon,opera. since versions 1 :) They keep getting worse.
    Looking forward to a future ability to sync. I know they dont announce in advance. I have that ability pretty well now using Evernote till it happens

    My question is on my first install I was offered a free email account. Not knowing I declined. From what I have read this is not available but there is a site called "I love free software" that directs to a what appears to be a Vivaldi site for a free email account. Before I sign up I wanted to verify

    So far I have to say this seems to be the most common sense and most usable browser out there And the first one I have seen that will actually give up memory and is not CPU hoarding nuts! :)

    Thanks
    Slim



  • @Slim - When you signed up for the forum you received a free email account. It doesn't have a terribly large storage quota (only 1 GB I think) but is useful for any number of people who don't run huge email volumes.

    At the top of the page you will find a "MAIL" link that will take you to your free account (Slim@vivaldi.com) and you may start using it.



  • It's a convenient address to use for Vivaldi Bug Reports if you want to keep them separate from your other email.

    That doesn't sound like it was an install from https://vivaldi.com

    I'm NOT saying that you have anything to worry about, but it might be worth checking for any unwanted software that may have come from your install.

    See

    Yes, this article

    is talking about the account you now have (as @Ayespy referred to ).
