    I think these are all snaps. Chromium's back though.

    I didn't upgrade yet, but it's a shame they focused on stuff that's not important to me. I didn't need the email and calendar stuff. I rather see them focusing more on anti-tracking like Brave and a new and improved password manager. Extensions should also be more easy to manage and what really bugs me is that when you install a new stand alone version, that you can't easily import settings. It's a pain keep having to configure Vivaldi from scratch.

    Do you use Vivaldi on more than one computer? I have it set to sync with my laptops and phone so for instance if I add an extension on the desktop PC it automatically gets added to installs on the other machines.

    I also don't need the new calendar and email features. I would have liked them to make the browser compatible with Chrome themes :)

    Didn't Opera ASA have a calendar and mail function back in the day?

    New version is out nice. Was excited until I saw nothing much changed aside from the email/calendar stuff. Bummer.

    Yes I use it on my desktop and laptop, but it's not just about that. It should also be able to easily import settings when you install a portable/standalone version of Vivaldi and when you make a new browser profile. Does the sync feature also has this ability?

    Yeah and as much as have tried to adapt and like Vivaldi for about a year, am finding much more responsiveness of performance with the newest Chrome. It's like a see-saw up & down and back n forth with browsers lately.

    Most users anymore run 10 and have for sometime but others like yours truly is relied mostly on 8.1 and Vivaldi seems geared more to the updated architecture than the former. And I can understand that.

    I get the dead bird every once in a while but very infrequently. And almost always it's on a Yahoo page.

    A few people have reported the bird. Until the latest upgrade I'd never seen it before on macOS or Ubuntu. Never at all on Win 7. So I'm guessing it's a recent bug and sporadic in nature.
