Just adding a couple things…



  • I just downloaded what's offered on the main site, and as I'm using Slackware 14.1 64bit I had to go the extra step to change the rpm to a tarball. No big deal really. It starts up okay, but once started it IS fast. Ugly colors for the time being, but fast. I did get this when it started up: [code]me@home:~/vivaldi$ [15955:15980:0225/073838:ERROR:logging.h(777)] Failed to call method: org.kde.KWallet.isEnabled: object_path= /modules/kwalletd: org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.ServiceUnknown: The name org.kde.kwalletd was not provided by any .service files [15955:15980:0225/073838:ERROR:native_backend_kwallet_x.cc(230)] Error contacting kwalletd (isEnabled) [15955:15980:0225/073839:ERROR:logging.h(777)] Failed to call method: org.kde.KWallet.isEnabled: object_path= /modules/kwalletd: org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.NoReply: Message did not receive a reply (timeout by message bus) [15955:15980:0225/073839:ERROR:native_backend_kwallet_x.cc(230)] Error contacting kwalletd (isEnabled)[/code] After shutting down Vivaldi, I also had to do a Ctrl-c to get back to a normal konsole. I also did a check on how much memory was being used and it blew my mind that it uses three or four times as much as Seamonkey or Firefox! Snapshot attached...

  • You're obviously not using KDE; the fact you don't have the Kwallet password manager is a given. But yes, Chromium-based browsers (Midori, Opera 2x, and Vivaldi) tend to use more RAM than Mozilla-based browsers.

    Yes, I am using KDE, but I'd forgotten I always disable that nasty abortion known as 'kwallet'.

    When the RAM usage gets down to decent levels, I'll give Vivaldi another shot, as I liked what I saw for what it is so far other than that.
