I did not go along the Chinese path with Opera and decided to try Vivaldi (By the creator of Opera, I believe) and was hooked. Privacy (I think), speed, etc…
Anyone tried it?

What do you mean by “Chinese path”?

Opera is developed by a Norway company.

OH, I see now what you mean by that: didn’t know that a Chinese company has acquired it.

>So I’m back to Opera; as Dellu says, it’s got its own built-in VPN, and I’d forgotten (doh!) that it also supports Chrome extensions using the amazing “Download >Chrome Extensions” extension. So you can make up for the egregious lack of a Reader View by installing an appropriate Chrome extension such as “Just Read” (highly recommended).

I didn’t read Bill’s comment. I am sorry. I actaully was wondering why they don’t have servers in Norway…surprise, it has been acquired by a Chinese company. Living in Norway, I never heard of this acquisition.

Personally, I enjoyed the VPN; am able to get to the US network with no problems as many youtube videos allow only US viewer. I find the VPN very fast; specially the German server (Geography?).
