For those unaware, Vivaldi is a sparkling new(got its first stable release in August) browser from some of the people behind Opera. It features many of the cherished features of Opera, as well as numerous improvements and a primary focus on user choice. It's highly customizable and has very extensive support.

I used it. I don't really see why I'd choose it over Chrome? Are we still in the browser wars?

I actually think Vivaldi is superior to Chrome and probably every other browser out there at the moment.

Sadly it's logo looks like shit, but what can y'do.

But this feels much more in the spirit of Opera was before it became "just another Webkit browser". I mean Vivaldi is Blink, which is just a fork of Webkit, but it feels more mature feature-wise than Opera already.

But it feels clunky and odd. I don't need half of the features it offers.

"FileTrekker"I actually think Vivaldi is superior to Chrome and probably every other browser out there at the moment.

I actually think it's faster, too. Handles HTML5 and Flash better. Plus, the biweekly updates means that any bugs get fixed very quickly.

As for not needing the features, well... That's why there's choice. Those that just want a prepackaged browser that accesses websites can use Edge, Chrome or Explorer. But Vivaldi is perfect for powerusers that want absolute control.

I honestly have never heard of this. In any case, I stick with trusty Firefox.
