Some lacks against chrome



  • Hi Vivaldi is a cool browser but has some problems & lacks; At first i think it is slower than chrome, yet & takes too many resources. Second has problem with Internet Download Manager(IDM) extension, specially in downloading video for example : when you watching video Vivaldi does not show any IDM's pop up above video to download it but you can see it on chrome( Vivaldi is chrome base browser so must be works correctly)! Third; there is no options to delete cookies automatically after exit , it is recommended that to add more options in privacy. At last : Vivaldi's setting is confusing & takes far from simple menus. Best regards



  • For me it only takes a bit more to load, pages load just as fast.

    The IDM popup, I can't verify that because I stopped using IDM.

    The settings actually have a better layout than Chrome and are easier to navigate, there is also a search box in case you can't find something. When I used Chrome, the Settings were such a mess that I didn't even bother looking for the particular item I needed, I used the search box all the time.



  • There is a "known problem" with IDM
    see https://vivaldi.net/en-US/forum/3rd-party-extensions/8400-internet-download-manager-not-working

    For the moment to delete cookies on exit, you have to use a Private Window for browsing.



  • I agree about the settings being complicated. It's only going to get worse as more are added. Probably too early though to make significant changes. Wait until 95% of features are complete, then think about stream-lining the settings interface.



  • In the Privacy settings under Cookies, doesn't the option "Session only" delete cookies on exit?

    In my case is slightly slower then chrome but faster than firefox.

    @mhbself:

    That popup doesn't work on all sites (on facebook does), but I think it'll improve as IDM now support Vivaldi in its settings.

    @mhbself:

    Actually is possible, but you risk to kill all cookies (maybe unwanted if you like autologin)
    With this you can have a kind of control of what keep (annoying for the first time, but keep browser cookies clean without losing wanted cookies)



  • Talking about differences from Chome: Is the security sandbox of Chrome working in Vivaldi?
