Adventures in Linux - Browsers

It's awesome to have my backspace functionality again, thank you. Apparently Firefox find Vivaldi and Wikipedia to be unsecure so I can't browse there easily. The advanced option to bypass seems to be missing. Maybe Midori.....

Goddamn upgrades. Decided to upgrade to 17.04 (reformat and install), tried to reinstall Opera and it wants libgstream-base 0.10, or something like that. It doesn't like the libgstream-base 1.0 that's installed. I don't want to screw around with rolling back (or what ever it's called when using a deprecated version; it's been a long night) so I installed the latest version of Operomium that you've been warning me against. In trying to get the damn thing to work in an intelligent manner I came across many an Opera forum thread that essentially read "How the fuck do I get X functionality from 12?" "Very few people used X so we designed the new version to be just like every other browser out there so people don't get confused but someone built an addon that does something like that." If your browser works just like every other browser out there why would I bother with yours? The fact that there are hacked patches to create X should clue you in that people aren't happy with the changes. More than once I read a comment stating that they could no longer recommend Opera. I'm with them.

Have you tried Vivaldi?

No, I haven't. Operomium doesn't work exactly how I'd like it to but add-ons make it close. What does impress me about it is its built-in ad blocker. It's fun to click on the blocker icon to get stats and comments, "59 on this site. That's a lot of ads blocked." "35 on this site. Opera blocks ad after ad!" "99 on this site. What is this? A website for an advertisement firm?"

After learning that Opera was bought by a Chinese company that makes most of its money by selling user data, I've stopped using Opera and am using Vivaldi now. It's much better now than when I first tried it.
