Vivaldi: a browser based on the Chrome and Blink engine with the essence of Opera

Vivaldi

There are a lot of different web browsers popping up on the market lately. The main reason for this is that, the most popular browsers are no longer the main choice of Internet users.

Y is that without a doubt we cannot deny that Chrome consumes RAM memory in large quantities (and it has significant privacy issues), and Firefox seems to have gone off the rails adding things that are not even relevant.

Day today we are going to talk about an excellent web browser, which has very good options and tools.

Vivaldi browser is a freeware web browser developed by Vivaldi Technologies, a company founded by the co-founder and former CEO of Opera, Jon Stephenson von Tetzchner.

About Vivaldi

Like Opera, Vivaldi has things like Speed ​​Dial, Rewind / Fast Forward, and other Opera browser functions.

Also, it has a lot of new things to look like as well, like Adaptive Color Interface: something that allows the browser to change colors based on the browser page, and so on.

The Navigator is based on Google's open source version of Chrome, and it doesn't pretend to be faster than Chrome, just very different.

Like Chrome, you can get the power of extensions. However, its goal is to offer so many features that no extensions are needed.

Vivaldi says you are working on a mobile version of the browser, and other projects designed to attract new users.

Like most other browsers, Vivaldi offers a private browsing mode It offers a degree of privacy to the extent that it does not record the sites you visit or store cookies and temporary files.

However, Vivaldi also focuses on privacy and makes use of DuckDuckGo the default search engine for the incognito mode of the browser, which will be used regardless of what your default search engine is in normal browsing mode.

Vivaldi has a minimalist user interface, with basic icons and fonts, and a color scheme that changes depending on the background and design of the web page being visited.

The browser also allows users to customize the appearance of user interface elements, such as background color, general theme, address bar, and tab positioning and start pages.
