Does anybody use it? I really like it, it's the most full featured browser I've ever used. Faster than firefox. The downside, it does so much it has a learning curve.

Yeah, we've had a few threads on it.
It's actually outstanding, Chromium based so it's got all kinds of nifty plugins.
I use it regularly but FF is still my goto browser.
I really dig Chromium on Linux though, it's all the good stuff less the stuff you don't want.

I use Vivaldi. I've used it for a while. I have Chrome, but only use it for Netflix. I also have Edge but refuse to use it because it doesn't allow blockers. Other than that it works great. I used Firefox for many years until it became bloated and I was having some other issue which I can't recall right now. I tried Brave. It sucked. I use Opera on my mobiles but wasn't happy with it on my laptop.

Yeah, not crazy about edge, and don't like the way 10 tried to push it on you.

I had no clue what it was either.
The noise that box makes... chuckle.gif
It took 5 minutes to boot.
But you got a nifty square mouse.

yepper , it's the noises that I recall ,,
sitting in a Cubicle back in the 70's at a Aerospace firm ( Northrup )
The Ladies on the old word processors smacking away at those keyboards ,,

was the only drawback to an otherwise very cool Job .
Then , 1983 , My Neighbor got one of the first Personal
Home Computers ,,,

Black background with bright green characters ,, JEBUS ,, my eyes have
never been the same since ,,

five minutes to boot , was pretty fast back then ,,
I recall dial up on my first PC , took a full minute to flip a page .

ya hit enter , took the Puppy for a Pee Poo Potty ,,,
when ya got back ,,, ya still had time to fill her water Bowl .

Those ancient IBM mechanical keyboards are very responsive. I use a mechanical keyboard at home, a Razer BlackWidow X Ultimate. They are expensive.

I didn't use it enough to know that. I just knew that when I tried it it was fast and smooth. I didn't bother with settings or anything. All I had to know was that there are no blockers allowed and when asked about it on the M$ site the standard answer was to turn on the pop-up blocker.
