A few notes about Opera and Vivaldi

These are a few notes about Opera and Vivaldi web browser’s when compared to Firefox, after using both for a week.

The good

  • sleek interface (both but I became more fond of Opera in this regard)
  • functionality (both)
  • some sort of adblocker included (both)
  • integrated VPN in Opera (although I have mixed feelings about this, since it’s proprietary as far as I can tell)

The bad

  • resource usage bigger than Firefox in my system (both)
  • slower than Firefox, using default configs (both)
  • proprietary (both)

The following specs were used when testing both browsers:
