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.

    I use Vivaldi for my Blink based browser. The gestures and tab handling mimic Opera well enough that I don't constantly swear at myself when something behaves unexpectedly. They also deliver innovative updates pretty regularly, and while it is closed source they seem to be maintaining a similar strategy as the original Opera team with multiple platforms supported.

    I also use Otter Browser as my WebKit browser; while it is under development unfortunately WebKit struggles to keep up with Blink and Gecko.

    Primarily I am using FireFox, but since 57 I've been getting more and more angry at the lack of extensions: gestures only work in tabs on a website (not empty tabs or FireFox tabs), and without Tab Mix Plus there is no way to have tabs open/close like Opera.
