What’s unique in Vivaldi for Android?



  • The new Android Vivaldi is very promising.

    Now I have only one missing feature: By zooming to fit to width of mobile screen.

    @danielson: We already have Dark theme, just go to Settings -> Themes

    Was it there on the initial release?
    Have initially enabled it via chrome://tags

    But now i see it in settings. 😉

    Yeah, it was in the previous build (163). I can confirm that I had switched configured it to use the Dark theme via the Settings menu.



  • First off, ALL Android browsers are inherently unsafe!

    As for the new Vivaldi Android browser, its performance is less than stunning, with 293 out of 404 BrowserAudit.com tests passing, 11 posting warnings, and 100 tests being skipped. To its credit, no Critical alerts were posted.

    All other Android browsers are equally unimpressive, but one must also consider that the platform is a Google messterpiece with gobs of built-in spyware "features". I caution everyone to NEVER use an Android device to transmit any financial data for this reason, no matter how tempting it may seem.

    What dude? I mean, at face value, sure. I could also say that ALL browsers are inherently unsafe, that is an equally valid statement.

    Android [has] gobs of built-in spyware "features".

    Citation needed.


    Visiting the BrowserAudit website linked above, my Vivaldi browser on my desktop is so secure that the website can't even test it. When I click the "Test me" button, nothing happens. I usually go to other websites to analyze the security and privacy risks in my browser configuration, ones that can actually analyze my configuration.

    I recommend finding a better way to analyze the safety of your browser. One that has been updated in the last 4 years and is capable of analyzing browsers in a more complete and robust fashion. The results from that website are not meaningful in 2019.



  • But there are lack of syncing search engines with a desktop. Every day I use about 20 different search engines, and I bounded with stupid firefox which is only browser that allows to sync search engines between desktop and android.
    Keywords for search engines is a beatiful idea, but users need more!
