    I also can't see any license details either in the link or in the downloaded installer package.

    I did find this on wikipedia though ---- http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vivaldi_%28web_browser%29 Freeware apparently, according to the right hand side info box.

    Re: a new browser VIvaldi

    I find it amusing that the bone of contention was the move by the Opera developers to switch from the Presto engine to Blink and now we have Vivaldi using, guess what? Blink!

    Still choice is good.
    It is a machine. It is more stupid than we are. It will not stop us from doing stupid things.

    Works well , but missing many features at this point. The HTML5 player works well on all video sources tested so far. Ill check the progress of the browser from time to time until released.

    Try to get an Adobe Flash system integrated into it, but still keep it freeware.

    I tried it yestersay. It does somethig weird with the window manager decorations - it seems to disable the proper window manager ones and put its own ugly ones on instead. What's that all about? I found it so jarringly unpleasant that I uninstalled it again without looking any further.

    It doesn't look like it will be open source. There is already a ton of proprietary browsers based on Chromium. Opera, Yandex Browser, Maxthon, Torch Browser, Comodo Dragon, Epic Privacy Browser, CoolNovo, Superbird browser ect ect.

    I doubt it. They would have to partner with Adobe to develop their own pepperflash and it's a long process. Google did it and Opera is still working on implementing peperflash but that takes time. It doesn't makes much sense either, as adobe flash will not be part of the future of Internet.
