Yes, I know its a preview, but if their starting point is Opera in terms of UI design, well I don't know how much they will change. I will be keeping the preview installed until the final version.

 

Too ugly and flat

 

Until Skuemorphic 3d buttons are back I will avoid. Why does everything have to look like it has been run over by a steamroller?

I noticed on my Windows 8.1 machine that Vivaldi has serious font rendering issues when enabling DirectX rendering. A pity.

Always game for checking out a new browser, especially one NOT built on Chrome's engine, but still willing to try it though.

Yes,

I gathered it WAS built on Chrome's engine, which is why I said I'd prefer it to NOT be built on it and why I'm NOT using it as of yet! ;)

 

Didn't think I worded that quite right for some of you to comprehend that! :)

Is this thing supposed to work on Windows 10 because it sure didn't on mine? Don't know if that was due to all the bloat looking crap in it or Windows itself, but gads, what a piece of crap looking thing!

 

Then, what's up with that Windows 10 uninstall process? Went to control panel and removed it, but it left the icon in taskbar and when I clicked that it still opened! I then went to where I had it installed and just flat out deleted it. Icon in taskbar didn't work after that and then I finally got the option to unpin it from taskbar, which I could not do while it was installed!

 

Don't know which is worse, this browser or Windows 10?

 

Yes, I do know both are beta's!
