The power user's browser Vivaldi has come to the Raspberry Pi and other Linux Arm boards.

The Chrome-based browser will run on all three generations of the Pi, as well as the CubieBoard and ASUS's Tinker Board, Vivaldi said today.

Vivaldi has supported Linux (and Mac) since it made its debut, but this is the first Arm port, a milestone on the road to a mobile version that it pledged to produce last year.

A bright spot for Opera fans.

    Power users use power browsers.

    Chromium is a basic browser, and from version 57, Firefox has become a basic browser as well.

    For a power browser, the choice is between Palemoon and Vivaldi, with each of them lacking in some areas. Personally I have Firefox 52 ESR for some things, because neither Palemoon nor Vivaldi has what I need (Palemoon lacks Video Downloadhelper, Vivaldi lacks h.264 support on Linux).

    Chromium and Firefox are both viable options for a "Power User". I would also hazard a guess that so-called "Power Users" by and large use one of those two, if not both.
