Is the latest Vivaldi Browser Beta Secure like Firefox or Chrome?



  • I am a newbie to this forum and to Vivaldi browser as I always liked Opera until they changed various components. Therefore I am nostalgic for the old Opera... meaning Vivaldi. I downloaded the 64bit version as my PC is 64bit. Opera does not have 64bit. I have customized Vivaldi to much the way I want it, with Roboform and Adblock added, and imported all my bookmarks from Firefox. So far so good. Now the question I have is being that Vivaldi is a work in progress, would it be safe to say that it is secure as Firefox or Chrome, or being beta, it still has some security flaws? I use 64bit Firefox and Chrome because they are stable and relatively secure but no one here talks about Vivaldi being a secure browser. Please advise, as I do like it and want to use it. If I missed the article or the wording, please direct me to it. Regardless, continued success on the browser development.

    The engine is Chromiun 49. It is as secure as Chromium 49, plus there are a couple of ways the browser UI is even more secure.
