Vivaldi on iOS?

So now that in iOS 14, you can set 3rd party browsers as default, is there a chance that an iOS/iPadOS version of Vivaldi could come sometime in the future?

You’re mixing two completely different things
- default browser = the web browser that’s used to open links from other apps (obviously you have to have it installed)
- browser engine = part of the browser that’s responsible for rendering the websites
- Apple requires all browsers to use the WebKit engine
There’s always a chance — IIRC even a plan. The problem is that V still has to be rebuilt on WebKit.
@trose0928 You can only assign default browser from among those browsers that have been installed. iOS will not permit Vivaldi to be installed, because it is not built on the Apple/WebKit engine, the only engine they allow on their platform. So you can't select it, because it's not there. It's not there, because Apple excludes it.
That said, Vivaldi has plans to build (from scratch) an Apple/WebKit browser at some point in the future. It's just no possible yet.
