  • Can't expect miracles with a pre-alpha (tech preview) - won't be beta for a while yet



  • I am not waiting miracles, I expect not damage my computer and my others browsers…



  • @ramonjosegn:

    A technical preview, alpha, or beta version is not expected to damage your computer, but there's no guarantee that it will not, and quite a high chance that it will. Don't install anything other than final versions if you're not prepared to fix things that get broken. Set a restore point if you're of a nervous disposition.

    Even final stable versions of software are not guaranteed in any way. Read paragraph 10 of the license agreement.



  • If using Windows, put anything "alpha" (and some things "beta") into a special limited-user account and use it from there. If it causes hiccups, at the end of the day should all else fail, you can always blow away the account, and the problems should go with it. At worst, a pass or two with something like CCleaner will remove any shards that are left behind in the registry. There's a reason a "stable" release is called what it is, and the implication is also that any other kind of version will be less than stable… the earlier in the development cycle, the greater the instability risks and potential negative consequences.



  • I believe that no one (OP included) will win the Pulitzer prize for discovering that a prerelease SW has some bugs.

    Instead the news is that the version 0.0001 is already completely usable, and that Vivaldi is in line with the good old Opera-Next.

    I mean that a beta version of Opera was almost always more stable and usable than some released sw.



  • Obviously being a beta version will have errors.

    But re-use files and folders from another browser (Coc Coc browser) I find it unacceptable, it's like installing Linux and to be mixing it with Windows operating system.

    No serious programmer would do that …



  • @ramonjosegn:

    That by the way is something that happens, and that is pretty useful, never heard about WINE end it's antimatter, Cgywin ?



  • For software so early in development to work as well as this does is quite amazing. I can hardly wait to see this project mature.

    I also like Vivaldi browser, so I report bugs, is a great alternative to many current browsers, personally I hate Chrome

    But for he wordpress errors I can not test it very thoroughly



  • I have to admit I'm quite intrigued by Vivaldi supposedly uninstalling this Coc Coc browser as part of its own uninstall process and/or overwrite its previous install just by installing Vivaldi. Not sure how something this random could possibly happen, given that Vivaldi has its own entirely separate installation (and settings) folder.

    Almost makes me want to go install that Coc Coc browser and see for myself how is something like that even possible.



  • You expect no damage in your computer?

    Then you should not be testing preview softwares on it. Simple. :woohoo:

    The browser is a preview, it means its to get a quick view on the product directorio and where its headed, its not designed for daily use or production browsing.

    Preview is not a Beta, a Beta is a product that is designed for testing and will be launched soon but could be unstable and contains some bugs, not ready for prime time. A preview is just a look at the product for curiosity. Vivaldi is not even a Beta yet. Preview is actually not even Alpha, even when some people call it like that. The previews of Explorer for example did not even have a menu, it was a box to load a website and nothing more.

    It will have bugs and it will be unstable and its not suggested to be a replacement yet for your current browser. Its for adventurous people that want to test and report bugs. :whistle:

    All the bugs you mentioned where reported already. Don't worry it will not break your computer, but nobody can guarantee you that either, if you are afraid of that, you should wait until an official stable release is out.

    What you mean re-use files and folders from another browser? What exactly?

    People mix Windows and Linux operating systems all the time, not sure what you tried to say with that, but I interconnect Windows and Linux machines just fine, and use files in what ever system I like.

    Ok, thanks for bugs reported.

    How can I delete for Windows 8 apps???





  • @terere:

    To remove an app in Windows 8 look here:

    Vivaldi NOT showing a UNINSTALLER BUTTON
    I think should be use CCleaner or anohter cleaner software :(

    I found news bugs:

    – download a file with a name exist on the computer on the same directory not working
    -- webmasters tools search box works with bugs (no led writing more a fews letters)



  • @ramonjosegn:

    • I am installed for Windows 8 APP, now I NOT can uninstalled (rigth button only show a little options)

    Please try providing a screenshot (preferably via Imgur), as I'm not sure what you mean exactly. Some tips that might come handy:

    • Vivaldi can be installed as a "standalone" version. In this case you only need to delete it's folder and it's "uninstalled".
    • If what you mean are Start Screen options, try pressing [Win]+[R], typing "appwiz.cpl" (without the quotes) and searching if Vivaldi is somewhere on that list.

    @ramonjosegn:

    • I have previous installed COC COC browser, Vivaldir re-write all my files for COC COC browser
    • Uninstall Vivaldi uninstall Coc Coc browser!! Can I not have 2 browsers installed?

    Wait… You said you could not uninstall Vivaldi and now you say you did uninstall it? As for it deleting this other browser's data - sorry, but I have to call bs. It's nigh impossible, unless you specifically told Vivaldi to install on top of that browser (say, you installed both into a "C:\browsers" folder instead of "C:\browsers\coc" and "C:\browsers\Vivald"), please double check.

    @ramonjosegn:

    • On Wordpress I no can upload files
    • On Wordpress I no can drag and drop files

    Which version of Wordpress? I just tried Wordpress 4.1 and I'm able to both upload files and drag/drop them to upload.

    @ramonjosegn:

    – download a file with a name exist on the computer on the same directory not working

    Works for me. Vivaldi just adds a "(1)", "(2)" etc. at the end of the filename (as is standard in Windows).
