Way to go Vivaldi! Congratulations!
Its been Vivaldi for me since 2015. Will never ever go back to Chrome. Its tagline also says now "Don't be a browser"!
Before Vivaldi, i used Opera and nothing else !
Thanks to Jon and the various teams !
My old Chr-Opera installation was lost when I formatted my PC a few months ago. Found an old screenshot from 2014, though (unfortunately not from the speed dial page). ^^
it's been 4 years already? uhh, kinda scary that we are still at the same point: beautiful manifesto and a piece of software that still is far from production ready
but it will probably get there before we hit 10 years, right?
in 4 years I moved from Fire to Water for obvious reasons, and just a bit earlier I moved back from Opera to Fire due to performance issues
Then - Opera, Firefox, Seamonkey
Now - Opera, Firefox, Vivaldi, Brave
I'm very indecisive and still trying to find the sweet spot (same browser, synced across devices, with features I want).
Have been using IE first, than opera from 3.62 upward, and last year more and more vivaldi. you only need a good enough mobile browser with sync before i can drop all others
mmh.. I'm bad with dates.
- IE 3 (omg) > IE6
- Mozilla Suite 1.0 > 1.4
- A bit of old Opera (Probably 6, 9 and 10)
- Firefox 0.8 > 2.0 (I used FF for years but gecko became slow, sluggish and affected by UX madness).
- An year of Maxthon and a bit of Lunascape.
- Chrome until around 50? (Blink is a good engine, after all, its stock UI isn't).
- Vivaldi 1.0 Beta > Vivaldi Snapshot RC.
Sometimes I also test Brave and (chr)opera. But rarely opened, as the latest FF which is still there.
Opera 12 as the main browser until late 2016, when Vivaldi felt ready.
My Browser history:
Started with Netscape Navigator 6 or 7
Short time with Firefox
Opera from 5.x to 12.16 (still using 12.16 Mail client)
Now I am quite happy with Vivaldi (snapshot) on Linux
Thank You very much for your efforts
Then - Opera (classic)
Now - Firefox (~50%), Vivaldi (~50%)
4 years ago:
Internet Explorer 4;
Netscape Communicator from 4.5 to 4.7;
Opera from 6.0 to 12.18 (still using M2);
Vivaldi from TP1 to Vivaldi 2.3.1430.4.
From 2013 to 2015 i tried various browsers including Firefox, Opera Blink, Iron, Otter but after a few minutes i was back to the real Opera.
In 2015 a love was born, the only one able to replace Opera 12.
@Gwen-Dragon Hehe, I should've picked a different filter on my phone
@srdgrb We hear you!
2015 (was a huge fan... but saw my disappointment grow more and more) :
