So I found a way to have Vivaldi somewhat portable. It IS NOT official, and may break in the future. Also, it currently ONLY works with PortableApps! But, I might edit the source code and send it to Vivaldi. Or add it as a feature request later. But for now, here is Vivaldi Portable!
Download the latest Vivaldi Installer, and run it. Click the "Advanced" button at the bottom. Set Vivaldi to download as a standalone browser to wherever you want it. If PortableApps is installed at the location, create a new folder in the Vivaldi install folder named App. Inside of the App folder create a new folder named AppInfo. Inside of AppInfo, create a .ini file named appinfo.ini. According to the PortableApps Format site, this ini file includes some app data for PortableApps. (if you are lost, read the website. it will tell you where everything goes). Here is my Vivaldi AppInfo script:
[Format] Type=PortableApps.comFormat Version=3.4 [Details] Name=Vivaldi AppID=VivaldiPortable BaseAppName=Vivaldi Publisher=Vivaldi Technologies Homepage=Vivaldi.com Category=Internet Description=Browser Language=Multilingual Trademarks=Vivaldi is a trademark of Vivaldi Technologies InstallType= [License] Shareable=false OpenSource=false Freeware=true CommercialUse=true EULAVersion=1 [Version] PackageVersion=1.10.867.48 DisplayVersion=1.10.867.48 [SpecialPaths] Plugins=NONE [Dependencies] UsesGhostscript=optional UsesJava=no UsesDotNetVersion= [Control] Icons=1 Start=vivaldi.exe ExtractIcon=vivaldi.exe ExtractName=vivaldi.exe
Copy all that text into the appinfo.ini file we created, and PortableApps will put Vivaldi in the Internet section, and not have Vivaldi Update Notifier showing.
To update Vivaldi, you update the app, THEN you have to change the appinfo.ini script. Search for [Version] and change the PackageVersion and DisplayVersion to the installed Vivaldi version.
Hope this helps!

Oh, and by the way, IsJSRZNM is a separate account on Vivaldi.net. I accidentally posted using it. Next time, it will be under the Nanotech account. Sorry for the confusion!
