So, Which One ?



  • Vivaldi is a GREAT browser ! Keep up the good work ! I recently shifted from Chrome to Vivaldi because i use XP, and Chrome will stop sending updates ! :'( But Vivaldi is better than Chrome actually ! Please don't stop updates for Vivaldi on xp ! My question is this : Which should i use for my daily purpose : Vivaldi Beta, or the snapshots ?



  • Neither. Use Opera 12.17 or some other stable browser like Chrome.

    Don't rely on Beta software or Snapshots for every day use. Just enjoy testing it out, for which purpose the latest Snapshot will always have more improvements, but it might also crash and lose your carefully crafted forum message replies.



  • But I really love Vivaldi !!! :unsure: :unsure: :unsure:
    It should really come out of beta soon. Its really good !

    Vivaldi? You will get it running on XP, but it is better to use 32bit.
    But here may be sometime problems with video decoding because of of missing modern codecs and GPU/hardware acceleration on XP.

    As one of the few XP64 users since the early days, I can say that such OS is practically unknown so, if we talk about XP, we are taking about the 32 bit OS, so the 32bit version of Vivaldi is mandatory, not better…

    Is better to use the 32bit version even on W10 x64, anyway... ;)

    Back to the OP question, i use the snapshots since the day one, just like I was used to the next builds of opera.

    In both cases I never faced great problems.

    Anyway, If pesala's message scared you enough, you can use two (or more) versions of vivaldi side by side, with independent profiles, or with a single user profile shared by all the installations.

    Yep, pesala's reply scared me enough.
    I just love running Vivaldi in XP, so practically, I have even forgotten about Chrome.
