Firefox slowing you down? Vivaldi as an alternative.

Firefox getting too slow or bloaty for you?

I've been checking out the latest build of Vivaldi browser the last couple days. Nice and responsive; it works with Google extensions so you can get an adblocker or whatever from there. I only use ublock origin from there. It's not in the repositories (maybe experimental?) but Vivaldi provides a 32 and 64-bit deb package.. If you search for "vivaldi testing branch" you can find an installer script for non Debian/Redhat systems. They make it hard to find for some reason.

If some multimedia isn't working, launch Vivaldi from a terminal; it will display a curl command you can use to get a multimedia file from an Ubuntu repository.
