Vivaldi – A Privacy Oriented Web Browser

Today’s world is already comparable to George Orwell’s dystopian novel ‘1984’, since “everyone is being followed and everyone’s information is being collected.” Lack of awareness of the amount of data harvested online is “a perfect storm of a really bad idea,” according to Jon von Tetzchner. He said he was increasingly concerned about data collection and tracking by tech giants like Google and Facebook. He wants to change that.

von Tetzchner is the creator of Opera, the well-known web browser. Now he has a new project. Yes, he’s creating a web browser again. However, this one promises to be very different from Opera. He has since launched Vivaldi, which includes functions he says bigger browsers lack. Vivaldi.net does not track searches and is based on an online community of users who recommend features, he said. It also offers a million ways to customize everything.
