Vivaldi Web Browser 1.0 released

Q: Vivaldi Web Browser 1.0 released

Almost two years ago, the Norwegian browser firm Opera ripped out the guts of its product and adopted the more standard WebKit and Chromium technologies, essentially making it more like rivals Chrome and Safari. But it wasn?t just Opera?s innards that changed; the browser also became more streamlined and perhaps less? geeky.

Many Opera fans were deeply displeased at the loss of what they saw as key differentiating functionality. So now Jon von Tetzchner, the man who founded Opera and who would probably never have allowed those drastic feature changes, is back to serve this hard core with a new browser called Vivaldi.

Old meets new
Vivaldi doesn?t mark a return to Opera?s old internals ? it uses Chromium as a base and has a user interface that is itself unusually built using web technologies ? but it does bring back features such as tab stacking, an advanced bookmark manager, keyboard shortcuts, and the ability to start with multiple session windows.

Opera used to be ?more feature-rich, for a crowd of users that want more from their browser,? von Tetzchner told me:

After I quit [as CEO in 2010, then fully in 2011], Opera changed their philosophy. They made kind of a browser that?s more in line with most of the other browsers and doesn?t have a lot of features. The focus is in a way on making the browser disappear, and I think there?s a lot of people that want something different.

While these users could install Chrome with ?30 extensions? to get all the functionality they want, von Tetzchner argued, now they can install Vivaldi and get everything in the main package.
Gigaom rendered on Vivaldi technical preview

Based on the quick play I?ve had with the first Vivaldi technical preview, publicly released on Tuesday, there?s more to it than just reviving the old Opera feel (though that?s a clear aim). For example, the HTML5-based UI allows the browser to rather neatly adopt the color scheme for the page being visited. The use of web technologies for the front end also makes it easier to launch cross-platform ? the technical preview is available for Windows, OS X and Linux right from the start.
Future features
The ?sister service? to the browser, the Vivaldi.net community suite, already launched quietly about a year back. This was in many ways a replacement for the old, ditched My Opera community, and it provides blogging and forum functionality.

?We believe it will be the natural playing ground for those that are using the browser, with a free mail service and a place you can put your photos,? von Tetzchner said, noting that the mail servers are based in Iceland. ?It?s not really a commercial site; we haven?t spent a lot of time marketing it. But we will add more functionality and change it gradually.?

Von Tetzchner told me more new browser features will be revealed by the time Vivaldi reaches its first full version (WebRTC will likely be supported, for instance.) A mobile version is also in the works, though von Tetzchner wouldn?t say more on that subject than ?We?re going for a browser that has more functionality than what you?re used to, but also has more different ways to do things ? the principle of that will be the same on mobile as it is on desktop.?

The Vivaldi team numbers around 25, a ?substantial part? of which is the technical team, and more than half of which are former Opera workers. Von Tetzchner is personally funding it all for now, but the browser?s business model will be the standard affiliate-deal affair.

Will Vivaldi be big? It?s hard to say ? Opera itself hasn?t broke past a market share of a few percent for many years, apart from in the feature-phone market. But Vivaldi does seem to combine a fresh new look with an impressively old-school appeal to the power user, and it may well find its niche. Perhaps not everyone does want the browser to just disappear into the background after all.

The Vivaldi web browser has been released to the public as a technical preview. Vivaldi enters the browser industry with three guiding principles: continuous innovation, a strong focus on community and a respect for the unique needs of each person who uses the browser.

Hi folks anyone else trying the new Vivaldi browser?
 
No extensions yet but I will enquire, it has the familiar Opera style speed dial and I like the way cookies can be deleted, it also lists them separately for you and from here 11 cookies are listed from this site for example, I can delete all or pick which site individually.
 
Web Of Trust, HTTPS-everywhere would be nice along with a few others, what extensions do you use and why, regardless of which browser you currently favour?
 
Obviously not wanting to go off topic but there may be some I haven't used and would maybe when I send feedback suggest them also.
 
I'd sum up after a quick mess with it that it's a bit Spartan at the moment and Firefox is still my preferred browser for speed, stability, looks, extensions available and general ease of use. 
 
Thanks, Ian.

Story goes that some of the folks at Opera weren't too happy with the direction, so they split off and started Vivaldi hoping to pick up where the old Opera left off.

First stable release was issued a couple of weeks ago.

Has anybody tried it yet?

I think Standalone means, Offline installer?

Standalone software may refer to:
Computer software that can work offline, i.e. does not necessarily require network connection to function
Software that is not a part of some bundled software
A program that is run as a separate computer process, not an add-on of an existing process
Standalone program, a program that does not require operating system's services to run
A portable application, which can be run without the need for installation procedure

I wanted to try out the new Vivaldi browser, so I downloaded and installed the latest v. 1.0.435.46. It's supposedly running, and Task Manager tells me it's using about 67 MB of RAM, but it doesn't appear in any windows. Tried a reinstall too. Would this be an XP problem? I can't run Chrome and sometimes Opera won't run in XP.Edit: Moved topic from Windows XP to the more appropriate forum. ~ Animal

A:XP + Vivaldi

Since XP is no longer a supported. You will find this is a recurring theme of finding secondary browsers of the latest release working in XP. Since you already find that Chrome does not work with XP. Vivaldi is a Chromium based browser, it will not work in XP either unfortunately.You can see this discussed here: https://vivaldi.net/fr/forum/vivaldi-browser/8560-vivaldi-on-windows-xp-and-vista

Avira offers more than just an anti-virus (AV). Features that go beyond AV got integrated years ago (does anyone of you remember specific anti-spyware programs ?). I prefer to define what we offer as an add-on-security solution ? AV is shorter, but also less correct. Nonetheless shorter won.

Now we are about to stretch even further and integrate a browser into our eco system. And in case you are wondering: There are very good reasons for that.

Nowadays the top use-case for a computer is to access the internet using a browser. The infrastructure of the internet is run by different entities (routers, DNS, servers). The homepages contain executable code that is run in the browser. Manifold data formats are used in the net (HTML, JS, CSS, PNG, SVG, video formats, ?). All in all it?s a well connected and extremely complex system. And it is used to access valuable data (online banking, shopping, medical research, looking for a new job, ?) ? a disaster waiting to happen.

The browser developers (Mozilla and community, Google and community and Microsoft) are putting lots of resources into securing those browsers. And they are doing a very impressive job.

But the threats online are not getting less. There are a lot of them: Phising, insecure Wifis, malware drive-by, trackers, ? you name them!

This needs fixing.

Basically there are three points to secure:
The client (your PC and browser): Detect attacks and block them
The Internet infrastructure (like Wifis): End-to-... Read more

The benchmark SunSpider , V8 and Octane check the speed in the preparation of JavaScript.
The Acid3 test analyzes the conformity to current web standards.
Peacekeeper (Pk) focuses on HTML5 elements.
In SunSpider, a low value (in seconds) is better. In V8, Octane, Peacekeeper and Acid3, a high value (in points / runs) is better.

Hardware : The test PC COMPUTER BILD: a notebook with an Intel Pentium T2390 (dual core at 1.86 GHz), 3 gigabytes of RAM and Windows 10 (32 bit).

Hi

This morning I installed the latest version of Vivaldi, went to Channel 4's catch up page, All4 to watch a TV programme and got a message saying I needed to switch off my ad blocker (this would have been done permanently on All4 but I had to reinstall Vivaldi from scratch at the weekend and delete all of my settings as my PC to had a bit of a meltdown!) so I switched off Ad Block Plus on that page, then switched off Vivaldi's built-in ad blocker, refreshed and tried again - it still said I needed to switch off my ad blocker.

I therefore disabled ABP on the extensions page and added U Block Origin instead. Switched UBO off on All4, pressed 'play' and got the same message. I then disabled UBO on the extensions page so I had no ad blockers running at all, refreshed All4 & clicked play....it still said I had an ad blocker running!

Any ideas as to what to do next, please? It's obviously not ABP or UBO that's the problem if it's still saying it when neither is working and there doesn't appear to be any other setting I can change in Vivaldi so I'm at a loss! I'll probably end up just watching All4 on my horrendously slow tablet in future if I can't get it to work!

Thank you,

Ian.

Full Article: Adblock Extensions Released for Windows 10 Edge Browser

AdBlock and AdBlock Plus browser extensions have just debuted with Microsoft Edge support, finally allowing users on Windows 10 who want to stick with the default browser to install them too.

At this point, Microsoft Edge does not support extensions in the stable versions of Windows 10, so only members of the Windows Insider program running preview builds can install the new ad blockers. Microsoft is currently testing this feature and planning to release it in the upcoming Anniversary Update coming in the summer.

In order to install these new extensions, all you need to do is to open the store links forAdBlock and AdBlock Plus and click the install button. If you are on the latest builds of Windows 10, everything should complete successfully. Then simply go over to the extensions menu in Edge and you will be prompted to add new ad blockers.

Feature coming for retail users in July.

Source : Olhar Digital: Notícia: Navegador ultrarrápido da Mozilla será lançado para testes em junho

full article and more detailed in English : Mozilla's super speedy new browser will be available for testing in June

Three years ago Mozilla announced that began to develop a new architectural model for browsers, one that would front of WebKit (present in Chrome) and it would be much faster. For only now the project has gained a release date - although far.

The product is called Servant and his first version for public testing should be released in June. It will be an alpha available for Linux, OS X, Windows and Android, reports the blog of the initiative.

The Servant has been built on the basis of Rust programming language that Samsung helped Mozilla to develop in 2013. As explained by The Next Web, the browser will focus on performance, security, modularity and parallel - meaning that its components They operate independently, which helps improve the performance and stability.

Even though the news has finally received public appearance forecast, the alpha phase is only one of several that usually precede the official release. It should take months after it until the product is finally available for everyday use.

Mozilla does not talk much about the project, so do not know, for example, the foundation aims to unite it with Firefox - which runs the risk of losing market if the Servant win public.

Running latest Windows 10 and Vivaldi (a Chrome-based browser) versions. Beginning a least a month or two ago I lost the ability to type into Evernote Web Clipper fields. I've since learned that this also happens with third party sites in frames. I can, however, paste into the fields! Surprisingly, I find that sometimes (but usually not) after I paste into an Evernote Web Clipper field, I can then type into that or other fields in the form!?!

I have tried rebooting, deleting Cache and reinstalling Vivaldi. No joy.

A:SpywareBlaster 5.0 released! (March 1 released)

SpywareBlaster was one of my favorite tools of the past along with Spybot S&D and Ad-Aware. But things have changed, most browsers already offer about the same kind of protection or better with add-ons like Ghostery and Do Not Track Plus. The most current version of IE also automatically blocks third-party add-ons, Active X controls and Toolbars, users will have to approve the changes in order for them to be enabled and it is very easy to disable them now. Firefox and Google Chrome also auto block third-party extensions and you have to manually enable them. If somethings happens to get past the protection then IOBit Uninstaller can remove the most difficult browser add-ons with ease.

I hate to say it but SpywareBlaster is basically no longer needed since better options are available.

Hello, B.C.
 
My english is not 100% perfect, so I apologize.
 
After looking at how many problems were solved here I wanted to show mine, since yesterday, while not browsing or playing a fullscreen game, my default browser randomly opens, if I am playing a game, it minimizes it which makes it unplayable. And when I am browsing, no matter what browser is, my current tab switch to the browser home page, for example, In opera my home page is the speed dial, while browsing on a website e.j. wikipedia or any other, it changes to the browser home page for no reason, and that happens in all browsers, no matter what the default one is.
 
I do believe this is caused by a malware. I scanned my computer with both avast! Free Antivirus and Windows Defender and found nothing. I deleted opera and made firefox my default browser, it randomly opened constantly as it did with opera. I restored my system to 04/12/12 and the problem was still present (I also rebooted many times), however, as I deleted opera when restoring my system it was still there as my default browser but, when whatever was causing the problem attempted to launch it, it popped up a window telling that the launcher file could not be run, and so that window popped up randomly and it was actually the same thing, as when I deleted the launcher file, it stopped popping up the window (and a browser, because I had no default browser).

Dell M90 Laptop, nVidia Quadro, 2GB RAM

I have been working on a project and with everything opened my laptop reports that SolidWorks 2008 is using approx. 800MB of RAM (system has 2GB). I close out all my files, leaving SolidWorks open, and my RAM for SolidWorks is still up around 800MB. After closing SolidWorks, the task manager drops the SolidWorks application off the list (of course). I open SolidWorks and the task manager now reports that SolidWorks is using 150 MB of RAM.

Why is SolidWorks holding on to the RAM when I close my files? I've been told it is a Windows problem, and know of others with the same issue. SolidWorks is not the only program that does this (Mozilla does sometimes). Any suggestions on how to resolve this?
 

A:RAM Not Released

There is nothing to resolve.

This is the way Windows has worked for a while. Programs and files live in memory "cache" just in case they are needed again.

This is why when you run a large program, close it down and then run it again, that the 2nd run opens faster than the first.

This "cache" will be "quickly" reallocated when and if Windows, an active application or a new application needs more ram.

Until that occurs, there are no downsides and nothing to worry about.
