I just tried this for the first time...

They really need to fix bookmarks. Importing them works, however if you try reordering them Vivaldi reverses the bookmark order and it becomes a pain in the rear getting them in the preferred order.

I hate their 64-bit build messing my 32-bit Chromium installation. Also its uninstall sucks.

Bookmark ordering is still screwed up, so this is still useless to me.

They claimed that they have improved the tab performance and drawing vastly, you have to try that. Actually it is the first browser in which browser UI is drawn using HTML5 and Web technologies, next would be my guess "Servo" from Mozilla.

Did you try it ? :p  

To be honest, I was excited when I downloaded vivaldi, but when I opened it up for the first time, man that made me run away!

I use it as my main browser for a couple months now (cause ###### Opera :p) Performance is good for me, it has some issues here and there but there, like speeddial thumbnails not showing up but they have a new build every other week.  I wouldn't recommend for people till the beta comes out though

Yes, its nice browser in functionality wise and can be used as default browser though what makes me irritated that Vivaldi 64-bit caused Chromium 32-bit screwed up. Uninstall only removed Icon from desktop, all stuff remained there like garbage. It was really bad bug.
