Switching from Chrome



  • Greetings, I'm currently a Chrome user and have been for years. Should I choose to install Vivaldi, how do I transfer: My history My bookmarks My blocked websites My approved websites Also, what type of protection have you implemented to protect Users from hackers coming in through Flash and similar programs that can give access to our computers as well as take them down thru viruses, Trojans etc. Finally, will this browser work with Windows 10? And will the LastPass extension work? Thank you for your time. I truly look forward to trying Vivaldi?



  • @twoods403:

    My history
    My bookmarks

    Vivaldi button > File > Import settings and bookmarks > choose your google chrome profile

    @twoods403:

    My blocked websites
    My approved websites

    What do you mean exactly? However, the method above should be care also of these settings if implemented in Vivaldi (as based on chromium/chrome)

    @twoods403:

    what type of protection have you implemented to protect
    Users from hackers coming in through Flash and similar

    The protection is the same as the chrome, as they uses only the PPAPI plugins, a new technology which makes difficult to use plugins vulnerability (NPAPI plugins don't work anymore in Vivaldi/Chrome). However, you should use also a good antivirus to be sure, as for every browser ;)

    @twoods403:

    will this browser work with Windows 10? And will the LastPass
    extension work?

    Yes, and again yes :P

    I use as main browser since several snapshots (developer builds) ago, and I really like it, so try it and look if it's fine also for you :silly:
