    Is there really a point in disabling sandbox?

    No. Unless your browser doesn't boot, default is to leave the sandbox on.

    I disabled it because it seems to make Vivaldi run more smoothly on my system. If you're already protecting Vivaldi with anti-exploit or third party sandbox, you should still be safe.

    About Vivaldi, what is the main strong point compared to Chrome?

    Basically it's about features. Like the ability to put tabs on bottom and a handy bookmarks manager to name a few.

    The full expanded History is very nice in Vivaldi.

    I have noticed that the text on Yahoo Finance is displayed in a "blurred" way, it almost gives me a headache. Can you guys perhaps check if you also get to see this on Chrome/Vivaldi, and is there a way to fix this? In Firefox it looks normal.

    I see this a bit on Chrome and Vivaldi, but I use this extension, that improves a lot the fonts on them...

    none of the chromium releases can use any extension to anti-blur - simple because the code behind is no longer present since v56. you have to set your system right because chromium uses system settings.
