Wow i am loving this browser more and more and still in Beta. How good will the finished product be. :)
Outstanding! Also the speed with loading pages and the overall startup speed of the browser has easily doubled in this latest version. And they are improving it further they say. Still lots of work to do for the devs, but right now it's already very good.

Has anyone tested version 3, yet? Does it feel any faster? I liked the format of Vivaldi, but it didn't run very well on my end.
I haven't tested it yet but make sure to only install and use Vivaldi 32-bit version since 64-bit version is still experimental and has a lot of bugs

I installed Vivaldi a couple of days ago, the first impression was okay, until I noticed that every time I open a new tab, the focus moves to the new tab, which is supposed to open in the background! o_O
I looked it up on Vivaldi forum, and it seems to be a common complaint by Vivaldi users. Vivaldi Web Browser Community - Vivaldi Forum - New tabs in the background (1/1) A forum staff member suggested using "middle click" to open a new tab in the background! (I had no idea what middle-click meant, had to Google it:p).
It's a shame because I wanted to use Vivaldi as a secondary browser, but given my heavy browsing habits (30 or 40 tabs at the same time), this middle-click thing is a deal breaker for me:(

I use Vivaldi 32 Bits Portable. It still has glitches but overall acceptable.
Internet Download Manager works fine but Video download i.e Download Bar doesn't appear in Vivaldi.

To open new tab in background you have to right click link & select open in background. Most browser open in background with the option open in new tab. So yes it gets annoying at times with Vivaldi as users have the habit of selecting open in new tab but with Vivaldi you have to click open in background.

I tried the latest snapshot and i think Vivaldi it's going to be a good browser.
I used the 64 bit version and it reminded me Opera 12 version.
I liked it but i think it still needs work.
I like that have implemented some things from the old Opera version like the zoom bar on the down right corner.
I am looking forward for the stable release
