Vivaldi is becoming my favourite Chromium derivative.
Version 1.4.589.41 now released. This introduces the default location of /usr/lib/adobe-flashplugin for libpepflashplayer.so Pepper Flash plugin library. This removes the need to specify the path and the version number in the wrapper script. Both 32bit and 64bit versions tweaked for Puppy with latest Pepper Flash added. Uploaded as .pet and .sfs packages. Menu entry and .desktop file for rox pinboard or start from terminal with the command "vivaldi". The 64bit was tested briefly in Tahr64 and Slacko64 and runs as root with adequate sandboxing. The 32bit runs in slightly older Pups like Precise and Wheezy. In tahr you could optionally introduce sandboxing by editing the wrapper script but this is not essential.
EDIT:- Pepper Flash version upgrade to 23.0.0.207 done.

Vivaldi 1.5 is now released.
Testing 1.5.658.44 in both 32bit and 64bit.
Pepper Flash 23.0.0.207 included.
Netflix widevinecdm included but untested.

NOTE:- the location /usr/lib/adobe-flashplugin already exists in the Puppy system as a symlink to /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins so I have to put the Pepper Flash libpepflashplayer.so at /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins in the package. That way both .pet and .sfs install and work as expected.

Now testing Vivaldi 1.7.735.46 (32bit and 64bit) with the modification suggested by 666philb using bbe to enable run-as-root with sandbox and infobars enabled. (Actually I am not sure if infobars have been removed from Vivaldi anyway as the UI is extensively modified). Latest Pepper Flash appears to work. Netflix support not tested. Puppies with glibc 2.13 (eg Wheezy) or later.

I agree too.

I'm running your, Vivaldi 1.7.735.46 32bit and (64bit on fatdog-710), and so far like it very much.

This is my first Chromium based derivative, am impressed, so I went and dl'd Slimjet and Iron to test them out.
I like them all three, but am leaning toward Vivaldi, atm.

Thanks for the browsers. Wink

I have observed that Vivaldi takes much longer to load than chromium, opera, iron or slimjet in the 32 bit variety. Also these 4 render web pages quickly when compared to Vivaldi on my older kit using TahrPup 6.0.6. I would describe Vivaldi as sluggish.
