Vivaldi Browser

Post by mediatechnology » Sun Aug 05, 2018 11:57 am

I've used Firefox until around V58 or 59 before it became an out-of-control memory hog and unusable.

Then I used Iron. Iron is OK and fast. Iron renders some sites in Mobile format.

Opera is OK too.
Recently I tried Vivaldi and it is as fast as the other Chrome variants but uses less memory compared to Iron and Opera.

On a simple webpage Vivaldi consumed about 128 MB of memory. The same page, under Firefox was well over 500 MB.
Both used essentially the same plugins: Roboform and Ublock Origin.

I'm running Vivaldi on Win 7 and Ubuntu 16.04 and it is my default browser on both. Try Vivaldi

SOCIAL MEDIA PLATFORMS should advance FREEDOM OF SPEECH. Yet too many Americans have seen their accounts suspended, banned, or fraudulently reported for unclear “violations” of user policies. No matter your views, if you suspect political bias caused such an action to be taken against you, share your story with President Trump.
