Vivaldi 1.0 Benchmark Tests from the web

Vivaldi 1.0 is now dominating the news these days.People are praising and writing reviews on this new browser, so I've decided to post 3 Benchmark tests found along the way.
​1. Ghacks :
Code:

http://www.ghacks.net/2016/04/06/vivaldi-web-browser-review/



Hardware: not specified
2. Computerbild.de :

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).
3. Chip.de :
Code:
http://www.chip.de/artikel/Vivaldi-Browser-Test_76313444.html



Does not do well in comparison to the others in the JetStream test.

Hardware: not specified.

Vivaldi seems to be doing better in most of the benchmark tests provided along with the reviews. Of course, individual hardware matters.Users are also welcome to try on their own and post the results.You can also post any other benchmark tests you come across(with the source).

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hey everyone,

I just bought an Intel 335 240gb SSD since I wanted to speed my whole computer up and I have finally installed everything. I backed up my old HDD on an external HD, did a fresh windows 7 install on the new SSD, imported all my old files & setting using Windows Easy Transfer, then added my 1TB WD 7200rpm drive for media. The SSD still has 160gb free.

Anyway, I ran some benchmarks using AS SSD Benchmark and found to have write speeds of around 114 MB/s and read speeds around 185 MB/s, which is a lot slower than the SSD should perform no? I'm using the Marvell 6.0 GB/s SATA III port for my SSD, as the intel ones are SATA II. I enabled AHCI mode after installing the SSD by mistake, which I'm wondering if it is the cause of the slower speeds. It's definitely faster than my old drive, especially with boot times, but I want to get the most out of this new drive. Could anyone shed some light on what I can do to dramatically speed up the benchmark tests? I know benchmarks aren't everything, but it should not test this low. Thanks!

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

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.

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.

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.

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
Stand-alone expansion pack, expansion packs that do not require the original game

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.

We have another PC in the house with a similar configuration that does not show this bizarre problem.

Gibson Research puts out a free DNS benchmarking software. My ISP is Comcast, and when I run DNSBench, it invariably indicates that Comcast's server (75.75.75.75) is the fastest. You can set your connection to automatically find and use the fastest server, or make it use specific IP addresses. My question is, if you leave the settings to automatically find and use the fastest server, does that add a connection delay? If so, am I better off to specify which 3 IP addresses I want used, entering the Comcast server first?

Running diagnostics on the drive should not result in data loss, unless the drive just happens to completely fail during the test.

You would be smart to backup any data you cherish while you can

You can run diagnostics on the hard drive by downloading the diagnostic tool for the hard drive brand and making a bootable disc.

I just upgraded my system with a new mobo and cpu today.

For some reason when I use Heaven DX11 benchmark, it shows my gpu as the motherboard gpu and not my GTX 680. Also, the scores are much lower than someone with my same graphics card. I have updated my bios and installed the newest driver for my gtx680.

I picked up a new laptop for a friend, a Toshiba Satellite A135-S4467. It is a core 2 duo T5200 @ 1.6GHz each w/1GB ram and Windows Vista Home Premium.

I ran it against my laptop, an HP Pavilion ZV5000, a Pentium 4 uni @ 3.2GHz, w/1GB ram and Windows XP Pro.

The program I used was Cucusoft's AVI to DVD conversion appl. Of course I used the same AVI file in each case.

The application provides progress stats and estimates of time to completion as well as info on Frames processed, etc. So it is easy to see how they are running.

Now I expected that the Toshiba would be handicapped since I doubted that the App could take advantage of the Duo Proc setup, but it still had 1.6 GHz w/1GB of ram to run with!

Well here's what happened....the HP showed 42 minutes estimated time to completion....the Toshiba showed 15 HOURS!
I watched the progress numbers until the HP finished, and the Toshiba was at about 3% complete. I stopped the Toshiba.

Now I know this has a lot of Oranges mixed in with the Apples, but the Toshiba results amazed me. I'm tempted to load XP on it and try to rerun the application, because I'm thinking that the worst impact is from Vista?

Any thoughts?

RELEVANCY SCORE 37.2

Hey all,
Just built a new comp and I thought this thing would scream but I'm only getting a whimper

AMD FX-62 Dual Core CPU
1.0 GB DDR2 PC3200 (I believe its 3200)
ASUS M2A-VM-HDMI Motherboard
Ultra X-Connect Titanium w/ UV Blue 500Watt ATX PSU
Seagate Barracuda 7200.10 250GB Hard Drive (Serial ATA II, 7,200 RPM, 8MB)
Haven't done the video card yet
This thing should move like lightning right?

Something about this thing is mega slow to load programs and such.
I just used CrystalMark to get some Benchmark scores and my CPU ranked a bit lower than an AMD FX-60 (19442 vs. 25188) but my HDD was piss poor with a score of 4738 vs others out there ranking between 2 and 4 MILLION!!
Now my HDD is in a constant churning state, ya know always sounds like its struggling and grinding away when running programs especially ones like adaware or spybot that scan, not super loud but it bugs me. Is this an indication that is a piece of junk?

Is there any other way to determine if its is my HDD that is the weakest link in my new computer besides getting another and popping it in and are there any other good benchmark programs out there that can confirm this for me. Also, why would my CPU be scoring lower than a lower model? Maybe its just that CrystalMark isn't reliable.
Also, I'm running some EMSA Disk Check Program right now to try that out and see what happens
