Raspberry Pi users now have one more browser with the newly-announced availability of an experimental version of power-user-focused Vivaldi. It can be helpful on a Raspberry Pi connected to a TV as an alternative to the basic browsers that come with smart TVs.
The Vivaldi browser is now available for a range of ARM-based Linux devices and is supported by the Raspberry Pi Zero, Raspberry Pi 2 and Raspberry Pi 3 systems as well as CubieBoard, ASUS Tinker Board and more.
The new web browser offers a range of quirky and interesting features. More helpful, for Raspberry Pi users, is the ability to fine-tune performance.
Jon von Tetzchner said “companies should not be able to collect information so freely and particularly not to use for commercial purposes”.
Vivaldi is a desktop browser that focuses extensively on customisation. Users can change almost every aspect of the browser, whether it has to do with look and feel, adding quick notes, or defining customised keyboard shortcuts and mouse gestures.
In line with the Norwegian-based team’s aim to make Vivaldi the most feature-rich and customizable browser available to power users, the developers have created the new Window Panel.
People should worry about online data collection by technology companies because it gives them unparalleled insight into users lives, said Jon von Tetzchner, founder of Opera and Vivaldi browser.
Opera and Vivaldi founder says the government needs to protect individuals from the worst excesses of tech firms.
