I didn't check to see if Ruario's script specified "latest" or a specific version. I just wanted a glimpse at first so what I have, and like so far, is vivaldi-stable-2.1.1337.51-x86_64-1ro

EDIT: I don't know if this helps at all:

Failing that, go all out:

I am using i3 as a window manager, no DE. In firefox clicking the 'set as default...' always worked, but not so in Vivaldi. But the following (from your Vivaldi forum link) did the trick:
Code:
xdg-settings set default-web-browser vivaldi.desktop
Cheers, Leon.

I installed Vivaldi on my laptop. It has an amazing interface, however I somehow dislike the behaviour of the address and search fields. Will play with the settings a bit more...

Out of interest, what do you mean when you say behaviour? The one thing that I find a little odd is the progress bar when loading a page. Chromium has a dial that spins when it's trying to connect and when it's loading [I think in Chromium, the dial spins anticlockwise when it's trying to connect and clockwise when it's loading]. When Vivaldi is trying to connect the progress bar just hangs and everything is at a standstill. It would be great if the progress bar pulsed rather than did nothing before the page loads.

when i start typing in the address field, it would display some really weird suggestions, like something i have bookmarked long time ago, but have not visited recently.

I think you can select between it displaying your history when you search, your bookmarks, or nothing at all. I personally go for the latter - it's a huge benefit, especially seeing as in Chromium you do not have this option.

I agree, that's why I wrote that I am going to play with the settings. So far I really like Vivaldi and hope to make it my default browser once some things are cleared.

Any guidance on getting Widevine working? I followed the directions here, but the tests still don't work and I get an "Unexpected Error" on Netflix. I do have the Widevine plugin enabled in Settings. It works fine on Chromium.

Did you use the Sbo script to build and install Vivaldi?
It installs Vivaldi to /opt/vivaldi and vivaldi, in turn, looks for the widevine plugin in /opt/google/chrome.
Ruario has a script that will download and install the latest widevine. You might search his messages for the link to the script.

I was his latest-vivaldi.sh script. Now that I've switched to the SBo version, it works. Thanks cwizardone.

Great - for future reference you may find this thread useful. Particularly this post.

EDIT: I see you posted in there too, still, you may find ruario's post valuable as a reminder.

One hopeful sign about the browser is the web site does not use overlays. Perhaps the developers have half a clue about design.
Yes, see attachment

We take a files from a google hosted URL. Nothing is sent back. Of course because a connection was made to request the file, Google know that someone from that IP requested the file but that is about the sum of it

What are you talking about? Why would you jump to this. The reason that we state that we capture the IP address in our privacy policy, is that it is impossible for us not to capture this, since a connection was made and you can always see the IP of incoming connections. If we didn't mention this people would accuse us of lying. We don't send through your real IP address. So, if that connection is through a VPN, then it is the VPNs IP. In addition as already stated, we scrub our logs and remove the last octet of these IP addresses anyway. Thus all we know is that someone who appears to be hosted in country X sent the request. In addition we are not sharing this info with others.

[EDIT]: Ok, I misread you and missed “not”. Yes we know the rough location of people not using a VPN but we do not know who they are. We know, their screen dimensions, OS and architecture and a generated unique identifier, plus roughly where they are connecting from. This isn't really enough to pinpoint them. Websites you frequent can know just as much if not more due to extensive user of cookies, login data and JS. I would not be able to find “you” by looking at the collected stats, there is not enough to go on. I suspect the dozens of sites where you likely have an account (LQ included) probably know a lot more about you than we would. Even many sites where you have no account likely know a lot more, since not everyone scrubs their logs and they could infer stuff by where on the site their visit, particularly if the site is big and diverse (Wikipedia being a more extreme example).
