Vivaldi in the media, again.



  • https://www.theguardian.com/technology/askjack/2017/jun/08/windows-program-recommendations-more-advanced-users

    "After installing the basics, I add a few programs to my own PCs. The main ones are Microsoft Office, the Vivaldi browser, Process Explorer, DoubleKiller (a duplicate file finder), Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and NovaBench. Only two of these are aimed at advanced users – Vivaldi and Process Explorer – but they all have their uses.

    Vivaldi is my second browser, alongside Firefox. It’s based on Google’s open source Chromium code, so it works like Chrome but without Google’s proprietary additions. Its main appeal is that it’s very configurable, so you can make it work how you want. Its drawbacks are that, like Chrome, it consumes a lot of resources, and it doesn’t handle hundreds of tabs as nicely as Firefox."

    I disagree with the final 11 words.

    I restrained my inclination to post in its Comments, as an answer to the article's subject question; "Linux", given it's not technically correct in that context, & i am sure the target readership would have been simply annoyed.

    I do not agree with this part!

  • Abstain.

    No mention in post that the comparison is between FF e10 (multiprocess) or single process vs Chromium/Vivaldi multi process. No or without extensions. How they are compared.

    The post look more like a personal diary for "how I use my system".
