Note that you can run Vivaldi (and probably all Chromium-based browsers) with the --single-process flag,
Frankly I care very little about the multiprocess/single process thing (single process is more or less buggy on Vivaldi, Opium, Chromium and so on).For the end user what counts, after all, is the final result.What Vivaldi people did right (IMO, obviously) is the priority order.Vivaldi is still plenty of bugs, but has already a speed dial working, it has a user recognizable will to implement the email function, it has a function to import settings from Opera and so on.Emdek, on the other hand, focused the development more to fix anything under the hood before starting to add more features.While I respect his arguments I believe that was a not productive approach (and I told him in less "suspect" times).I was really enthusiast when I read about the Otter project (an still I'm) but the fact is that with Vivaldi I felt @home since the day one, I felt somewhat @home using Qupzilla and Opium, but I still feel "naked" using Otter.That's not a suggestion to give up (absolutely not) , but a renewed suggestion to rethink the development path.My two cents.
You're comparing a browser made from the ground up by a single developer with occasional help from limited people
And now, thanks to Vivaldi, I'm kinda forced to start harvesting our APIs to expose more user visible changes. ;-)
It's better to have two similar browsers than none (especially if they aren't similar to Chrome / IE / soon Firefox ;-)), lets make software, not war. :-)
Oh, also urlfiler.ini and user.css are needed.
This morning I wanted to visit a project's homepage from within synaptic package manager, so I clicked the homepage link and what happened? Vivaldi came up sluggish and presented me his redunant initial page (and not the project page I wanted to visit)! I did NOT set vivaldi my default browser, I even still have qupzilla set my default browser in the LXQT system settings, and Vivaldi has made himself more important than this LXQT setting - without asking me. My conclusion: Delete vivaldi immediately - so I did.
1. Is Otter going to be only for Geeks or also for Mortal People (that's me ?If only for Geeks it will die, and bring no money to the Author who--I think--deserves in the future some financial benefit out of his work. Mortal People can yield the fruits.2. Hence, the answer for the 1st question affects everything.
Yes, it would be nice to add all the rich features of later versions of Opera (including skins and integrated e-mail/newsreader/...), but try to keep the stability and speed above all.
There are ideas a-brewing to undermine the Otter project https://vivaldi.net/forum/all/1664-suggestion-hire-the-guy-making-the-otter-browser
Competition is always the pepper of life , so for me Vivaldi is a welcome entry as it was Otter, as it should be Fifth browser (I haven't tried it yet, but looks like it has the same aim as Otter).
Perhaps Otter and Fifth could cooperate instead?
