    Mr. Saive in Debian/Ubuntu/Mint On 64-Bit System architeture you provide a “.rpm” file rather than an actual .deb.

    Please fix it I’m really excited about Vivaldi (cause it’s developed by an Opera programmer and I really find Opera so cool) and want to make a testdrive with it.

      @Phillipe,

      Thanks for notifying us, corrected in the writeup and included correct DEB package for the Debian/Ubuntu and Mint.

    Ravi, Thanks for this article. I tried to install Vivaldi on my Linux Mint 13, but it is running into a problem right from the beginning.

      @Olympian,

      Sorry for the trouble, it’s due to missing links, I’ve just updated the links with most recent version, hope it will work for you..

      • Olympian says:

        Thank you for updating. I am able to download, but ran into problem with the next step (dkpg). Could you please see if it is similar to the problem that I ran into installing Chrome on Linux Mint 13 (ie Mint 13 is too old)? Thanks

          @Olympian,

          As I said latest version of Vivaldi browser requires more recent version of libnss3 (>= 3.17.2) libraries to function properly, the only way to install latest Vivaldi you should do a system upgrade….

    WIth great power comes great responsibilities…

    Does it have the necessary web security (inbuilt or apps) for a safer experience? (Like Trafficlight, AdBlockPlus, etc.)
    .

    • Ravi Saive says:

      @Ray,

      Yes, there are tons of plugins and extensions available for Vivaldi, all of them you can find at: vivaldi://chrome/extensions

  4. Raheel says:

    It’s about time a good successor to Opera 12.17 came along. However, I found that the RAM consumption is greater than Google Chrome with having its own technologies running on top of the Chromium back end. I hope this would improve overtime, but for now I’m sticking to Polarity for Windows and Midori for Linux.

  5. How about any plugins or extensions? Also how much memory does it eat compared to Chrome?

    • Ravi Saive says:

      @Marin,

      Yes, you can install all your favorite plugins or extensions by going to Vivaldi://extensions on the browser and about memory it uses much less than Chrome and FF…
