After more than one year in public development and millions of downloads, Vivaldi today released the first major release of its desktop browser: Vivaldi 1.0.
“We share the same core code as Chrome (Chromium) but we are very different with handling the privacy of our users. First of all, our business model is not based on understanding a user’s online behavior and profiling our users to monetise that information. We have no intention of knowing what people do on the web. What we focus on to provide superior experience for anything our users choose to do online,” Jon von Tetzchner, CEO at Vivaldi, told Help Net Security.

I find using this browser that it is really sleek & quick. It's faster probably because there are no browser add ons. I use it with Firefox and have both opened. There was a update to the Vivaldi the other day. I really do like this browser though. As I don't use it other tthen just browsing. ;)
I do a lot of streaming of television from all over the world, so I have many adblock add-ons on both Firefox and Chrome. Rarely, I get a successful pop-under, but Webroot keeps me safe.
So my experiment was to use Firefox to successfully access a show, then used the exact same link with Vivaldi. All I got with Vivaldi was a naked girl.
To meet my needs, Vivaldi will need adblock add-ons.
