"The most creative browser I have come across!"

/ Leave a Comment
So the other day I found myself in the middle of a conundrum, why did I use Google Chrome? What made me pick this when I first used my computer? Now it is to be said I can guarantee most people will have heard of the main browsers out there on the market being Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Safari and Internet Explorer (now Microsoft Edge). but what would you say if I was to say there are others out there, all it does takes is a quick google search to find that there is a plethora of different web browsers out there which do a heap of different things. After doing a bit of googling I came across one that I have found that blows the others out of the water!!

Now if you follow me on twitter then you already know browser I am talking about. The browser itself is called 'Vivaldi' and it is, in one sentence, The most creative browser I have ever come across! Based off of the Chromium source it is built with customisation in mind. After downloading, the first couple of steps it takes you through is all of the essential bits and bobs of what most people want to do e.g. setting a colour or theme to make their browser feel like their own, and customising start pages to what they want, but its when you delve a bit deeper into the browser that you find its brilliance.

Now me myself I love to be able to customise and change everything according to my liking, i'm always changing everything too do with my PC so when I delved in to the settings of Vivaldi I was incredibly surprised, the amount of changeable settings here is amazing, everything from the tab bar to the icons in the search bar can be edited and changed according to your own preference and how you like them.

So one point to Vivaldi in my eyes, the next comes from their intuitive side tab bar, now most common browsers adopt the same tab style that we all know and love, that is where your tabs are at the top and you click to change tab, what Vivaldi does is it lets you put this bar on the side. not only that but if you hover over the tab it will give you a small preview of the actual open tab, it gets better as well as it allows certain tabs to be grouped and can be viewed with the different thumbnails, so an example of this is I keep all of my social media tabs in one succinct tab group so I can see all of them at once, check the picture below for an example of this.

Another great little point is that this browser is incredibly light in terms of system usage, for any of you geeks out there then you know this a great thing, sometimes when I have used the likes of Chrome, IE or Firefox I've found them to be quite 'system heavy' and find the disk usage is peaking at 100%, I have yet to encounter this with Vivaldi.

So who should download Vivaldi? I think if you use the internet everyday and like the idea of changing everything to suit your needs then its perfect for you, another great little point is that the team behind Vivaldi are always updating the browser so it keeps the system fresh and new features always being released, a big plus to them is their social media channels are always updated and they always welcome feedback or ideas that would make the browser better.

If you would like to try Vivaldi click the link below and I promise you wont be disappointed!! I honestly like this browser a lot so will probably write another post with more features and tips I have found while using it.
