New web browser: Vivaldi
article #943, updated 44 days ago

Vivaldi is looking very good so far, Windows Mac and Linux:

http://vivaldi.com

It is possibly the only browser for 32-bit Linux which will do Netflix and other DRM’d video. To do this, you need the ffmpeg codecs package and also widevine. For Netflix, you also need to start it like this (use vivaldi-snapshot if that’s what you have):

vivaldi-stable --user-agent='Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/51.0.2704.79 Safari/537.36'

Vivaldi does not yet have built-in synchronization of bookmarks et cetera, but one can use the excellent EverSync to take good care of this, it also works amongst Firefox, Chrome, IE, Android, iOS, and even Windows phones.

Just saw this. Looks very good, though haven’t built one yet. If I ever move to a Docker-based platform, will probably use it!

After changes are made to domain contacts at GoDaddy, Wild West Domains, and subsidiaries, it will say something like:
