    There is a new browser in town. Following the long tradition of weird names it was called Vivaldi.
    The company behind the browser is surprisingly also named Vivaldi and its co-founder is the ex-CEO of Opera Software.

    The browser is currently in Beta, but it works like a charm. Actually, I'm writing this post from Vivaldi and experiencing only a slight inconvenience (still not used to it).

    Pros:
    - European company (wave hi to NSA)
    - Made for power user - most of the customization I could remember from the old Opera are there
    - Incognito mode working (launch as "vivaldi.exe -incognito")
    - WebKit based - no compatibility problems with 99% of the Internet
    - Good team with proven experience

    Cons:
    - GUI built with modern technologies (node.js and React) - interface feels very slow comparing to Opera/Chrome
    - Raw - still in beta

    All in all, I like it.
    I would love it once they fix the GUI.

    I make extensions for Opera and it's a very good browser. It's Chrome based.

    Could be nothing but I prefer the things to stay where they are and use Opera as my secondary browser where (hopefully) google spy tools can't reach me

    I'm not sure how to put it correctly... Opera will be full of spyware, or spyware will be full of Opera?
