So, what is it...

Vivaldi is a multi-platform and freeware web browser, developed by Vivaldi Technologies, The browser is generally used by previous Opera web browser users disgruntled by Opera's transition from the Presto layout engine to the Blink layout engine, which removed many popular features in the process.

My experience with Vivaldi leads me to say that it's a powerful tool that, will give you a new web approach to go online.

Note:
You have to take in consideration that, this is a Beta version of Vivaldi. We advise to use it, only for testing.
