Is Vivaldi Battery Friendly?



  • I want to ask about vivaldi, is vivaldi battery friendly? I like to browser and always un-plug with wall charger while using laptop to surf web, do some code on my workstation, I mean laptop, last time I ditch opera because I saw that oper ex-CEO is working on this project, and I really hope to see a new browser born and vivaldi born, but still I also expect a browser that battery friendly and not hurting the system and CPU.. thanks for reading this. I just need answer since opera PGO launch I see so much diffrent on battery and memory works on browser that using proprietary engine, when Opera and Vivaldi, it's huge diffrend on loading time, and battery usage, even chrome lack on both of it..

    @BenyaminL: Not yet. It's on the "to do" list.



  • @ayespy Hello, when do you plan to release battery optimized version? At the moment it's the only thing that keeps me from constantly using Vivaldi on my laptop. If it's plugged I use Vivaldi, if not I have to switch to Opera, because it spares battery.

    @burito111 The developers won't give an estimated time of arrival for any features, more than "We're working on it," or "When it is ready."

    This avoids accusations of broken promises and frustrated users who have been kept hanging on for something that does not appear when expected.

    @burito111 I am an unpaid volunteer who does not work for Vivaldi. The developers have told some of us volunteers that they want to make Vivaldi battery friendly. No estimates or actions in that direction have been mentioned.
