Here at “Tech News for You”, I am caught between three web browsers: Google Chrome, Microsoft Edge, and Vivaldi. All three are excellent in my opinion and I actually struggle between choosing which one is my final pick. Vivaldi just released version 3.1 and their new full page notes manager has pulled Vivaldi back in the hunt as my top pick, edging out Microsoft Edge.
I really got excited when I came across the article at Chrome Unboxed that walks you though the steps of installing the Vivaldi Browser on the Chromebook. I am a big, big fan of Vivaldi; especially following their last version upgrade. To install Vivaldi on a Chromebook, you must have a Chromebook that supports Linux. If you do, follow the link below to read the rest of this story…
Vivaldi is a chromium based web browser that can be easily customized by the end-user. Vivaldi currently is the browser of choice, here at What’s On My PC… So far, I am loving this over Google Chrome and Microsoft Edge.

In brief, I have been torn between three web browsers: Google Chrome, Microsoft Edge, and Vivaldi… All are “chromium based” web browsers. I was pretty much locked in with Microsoft Edge, but may be changing my mind upon the release of Vivaldi 3.0.
I am not going to get into specific details, but what has me thinking about Vivaldi now is that I immediately noticed the lag I had been experiencing in the previous version seems to be gone and many of the streaming video apps I run seem to now run better. It may just be me, but things in this browser, just look and run better.
Vivaldi is one of those browsers that for someone like me, allows me to customize the browser to my taste, with its’ numerous common sense features that are not available in other web browsers. Vivaldi is one of those browsers that I predict will be talked about for years to come. I am also seeing that the Android version of Vivaldi has come out of beta and is also available at the Google Play Store.
I suggest you give Vivaldi a try. Main features of Vivaldi are:
To you folks at home, I am sure you are very familiar with Google Chrome. Google Chrome is Google’s signature web browser; but, did you know that Google Chrome is a spin off of what is called Chromium. Chromium (as defined by Wikipedia) is “a Google-developed, free and open-source project whose source code can be compiled into a web browser”. There is actually a Chromium web browser.
As result of the Chromium platform being open source, other entities can freely use the source code to develop their own signature web browser platforms. For example, here at “What’s On My PC” I have installed on my computer (for testing purposes) Google Chrome, the new Microsoft Edge, Vivaldi and Brave. Each one of the these browsers are built off the source code of Chromium and if you install and test drive these browsers you will notice the similarities to that of Google Chrome; however, each of these browsers have unique features.
Which one is better? Actually, they are all very good and it is exciting to see these browsers in competition with each other. It really comes down to a matter of opinion and maybe loyalty. Maybe you love Google products, Microsoft products or you like the idea of Open Source products. Maybe you love additional features; want more privacy and security; you want faster; or, like myself, you love trying new software applications.
Which one is my favorite??? At this point (and that can change at anytime), my favorite is the open source browser called BRAVE. What is catching my attention with BRAVE is the (to the naked eye) smoothness, clarity and speed; the more aggressive security and privacy protections; and, the seamless compatibility with the Google Chrome Store (to install my browser extensions).
