@jon Congrats, great news!
Wow… I did not see that coming… or did I?
In all seriousness the Manjaro team were fantastic to work with. A really nice bunch of people and apparently willing to forgive my glacial 🧊 replies to their questions.
@catweazle: And we love FerenOS, though Manjaro is a lot bigger.
@ruarí , a soft is as good as it's community.

For those of you who want that theme. Switch distro!
But you should at least still try Manjaro!
@doctorg , I have never doubted for a moment the genius of the Vivaldi team and their exceptional work, despite the few personnel. It is significant enough that a small company is mentioned at the height of the big ones on the net.

This is unambiguously very nice news, & i am not trying/wishing to rain on the parade. I offer this remark purely for context.
I decided to include it as the default browser in our popular Cinnamon Community Edition. With its remarkable browsing speed, exceptional customizability and especially the way it values user privacy, Vivaldi for me is a perfect match for Manjaro Linux
That quote is pivotal. MJ C is not regarded as one of their "primary" editions. The Community Editions are built & maintained by enthusiastic highly motivated senior members of the MJ community [&/or Dev team], but not by @philm, who retains prime control of said "primary" editions.
It's a few years since i last ran MJ as my real OS, so it's entirely possible official attitudes might have changed in the interim. However back over the years i did run MJ, the forum & especially "official" attitudes to V were negative & even hostile. People simply could/would not get over the FOSS/GNU/OSS biz.
Back then I perceived a broad tone of
only when hell freezes over. Maybe the errant Polar Vortex has now reached Hades?

Why don't you add Manjaro theme for all browser users? Because I spent a lot of time to make my own dark theme for Solus, but if I had Manjaro theme I would just use it with a liitle changes.

@semenov-sherin Ruarí posted the hex codes above. If you are using the import/export theme mod you can import from here:
@komposten: one huge downside of Vivaldi - which is deal-breaker for many - is that Vivaldi is a proprietary closed source browser. And, if the sources aren't open, they could openly contain backdoors - which is especially scary for a browser. Vivaldi should open the sources.

Greetings from an EndeavourOS user! Been using Vivaldi from the Arch community repositories since earlier this year. Before that I was installing the Vivaldi .deb file back when I was on Pop!_OS (used also on Solus for a couple years too!), but I feel more at home on an Arch-based distro like EndeavourOS. Keep up the great work Vivaldi devs and good job to the Manjaro community team for making Vivaldi a default. It's been my go to browser since it was first released like 5-6 years a go.

Congrats to Manjaro Community for this excellent choice!
@qmastery16 - maybe you might want to let INTEL know that we want an open source chip...
@qmastery16: While your concerns are understandable, 95% of our source is open. This post sheds more light on the source situation with the various layers in Vivaldi: https://vivaldi.com/blog/technology/why-isnt-vivaldi-browser-open-source/
maybe you might want to let INTEL know that we want an open source chip
if Intel refuses to provide an open source chip, there aren't many alternatives.
However, if Vivaldi refuses to release the complete sources, there are: i.e. Firefox.
It reminds me of another Manjaro story - with the Micro$oft Office shortcuts...

It's certainly my default on both my Manjaro KDE and Windows systems
