    Vivaldi versions

    Vivaldi home page seems to be blog or forum or FAQ, no overview of the browser. In an old post here:

    I don't understand, isn't stand-alone the default version? What's the other version, some kind of LAN or intranet thing?

    I installed it and used it for about a month (but frankly I preferred an old version of Opera). I didn't like Vivaldi much (and don't care for Chrome either).
    It seemed to uninstall without complications. Give it a try and see what you think.
    I've been using IE and Edge for the last few months, but am using Edge more and more lately. (The downside of using Edge is that each cumulative update seems to wreck my choice of settings.)

    Here's an overview at Wikipedia
    Here's some (dated?) choices of explanatory video at YouTube.

    Maybe cpwilson meant a portable version? That should be possible with Vivaldi, although I haven't tried it. I seem to recall it had the option when originally being installed.

    That could be it Arne, since obviously from you guys' 2 posts it's a 'normal' browser.

    Thanks for the links RockE. I guess I was hoping for some dazzlement due to "aimed at staunch technologists, heavy Internet users", but that doesn't seem to be the case. I'm not into Chrome either, but I do like the new Opera, and expect I'll settle on it as my main browser after testing a few alternatives.
    Lugh.
