There are already plenty of web browsers all of which work relatively well but there are five main browsers that together constitute almost all of those used except for a small percentage of users. Some of the many other browsers are well worth trying.
|The five main browsers, with the percentage who use them, as of February 2017 are: Chrome 62.95 percent, Firefox 14.81, Internet Explorer 9.62, Safari, 5.34 percent, and Edge 3.68 percent. Safari is the Apple browser, and Edge the new Microsoft browser. The next most popular browser Opera has only 1.6 percent of the market. Vivaldi has a minuscule .03 percent of the market.|
The browser is aimed at staunch technologists, heavy Internet users, and 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. Vivaldi aims to revive the old, popular features of Opera 12. The browser has gained popularity since the launch of its first technical preview. The browser has one million users as of January 2017.[While the description makes it sound as if the browser might be difficult for ordinary users to use, I found it to be as easy if not easier to use than the more popular browsers. No doubt there are plenty of features that I do not use but it has the features I need and use all the time. Anyone who uses Chrome, or Opera should have no difficulty using Vivaldi. There is a side bar that can be opened or closed easily in which you can store notes and there are links to other features you often use. Vivaldi retains the Speed Dial of Opera in which you can store websites you often visit as tiles and just click on the tiles to access the site. Vivaldi can also use Chrome extensions.
