    Have checked it out, it could have been so great if it wasn't for the high resource usage and constant activity from child processes being spawned. This multi-process architecture really is a disaster. I wonder if it's not possible to implement a "limited content process" feature like in Firefox?

    It's always Gmail old login page on Vivaldi here. My other browsers open Gmail new login page. And my password manager too have Gmail new login page saved. Even if I paste Gmail new login page on Vivaldi, it still opens Gmail old login page. I tried cleaning history and all but no use. It's a fresh installed Win 10 and fresh Vivaldi 64 Bit Standalone Install. How to get Vivaldi to open Gmail new login page?

    It works just fine for me. Perhaps you should clean cookies and cache via Tools ---> Clear Private Data.

    Perhaps you need to reinstall. You can install Vivaldi with the help of Sandboxie, to see if it behaves differently when running inside the sandbox. You can also post this problem on the Vivaldi forum.

    Now I did a Clean install of the newly released Win 10 version 1803. I installed Vivaldi 64 Bit (previous, was a Standalone install). Still, I get Gmail old login page.

    Just tried. Unlike other times this one I liked it. But I couldn't import my Bookmarks from Opera 12, although I followed the instructions, and also I tried other import way.

    It's so frustrating, I really wanted to dump Firefox 52 for Vivaldi, but the high resource usage and blurry font problem is just too much. Chromium is the biggest crap ever created, shame on Google. :thumbd:
