After stepping down from Opera three years ago, former CEO, Jon von Tetzchner, has jumped back into the fray with a new browser, called Vivaldi. Developed as a spiritual successor to his former flagship, Jon was motivated to kickstart the development of Vivaldi after Opera dropped Presto and the bulk of its pioneering feature-set.
Jon von Tetzchner said:“We are making a browser for our friends … Vivaldi is for all those people who want more from their browsers.”
I've been rocking Vivaldi for two days solid now, and aside from a few behavioural quirks (it's only a preview!) I'm loving it. Its infrastructure reminds me of Github's Atom text editor, but it is both significantly faster and significantly more stable.
