Mirrors in Chuanghua (2.4.1468.4):
March 14th is Pi Day, and we thought that’s a great excuse to get Raspberry Pi enthusiasts together to share their projects.
Well, if you are unaware that Vivaldi is compatible with Raspberry Pi and other ARM-based Linux devices, then it is time for you to elevate your “nerdy” self.
The crazy geeky bunch of developers at Vivaldi are always discovering various ways to make your browsing fun. More importantly, we believe in supporting cool stuff like Raspberry Pi and Linux on various devices.
So that you know, you can browse with Vivaldi on the recent models of the Raspberry Pi (⅔), along with other popular boards (and devices), such as CubieBoard and ASUS Tinker Board.
Read our handy guide on how to install Vivaldi on a RaspPi.
Share your Pi Project using Vivaldi browser and win
Sharing is pure joy and we believe in creating a vibrant community. The Vivaldi forum and blog let you interact with all and sundry. So all you Raspberry Pi tinkerers, do you fancy a new Raspberry Pi Model 3+? Dive in!
How about sharing some of your cool, wonderful projects that you’ve got on your mind or are in progress or are ready to be shared with us? If you happen to have pictures to support your idea, that’s even better!
The best entries will be shortlisted, and ONE lucky winner will receive a Raspberry Pi Model 3+ set. And if the competition gets too tough (we’ve experienced this before) we’ll have some cool Vivaldi swag for even more winners. The winners will be announced on Pi Day, March 14th.
Why Vivaldi on a Pi?
There are many reasons why you may want to add Vivaldi to your Pi. Simply because it has a plethora of quirky and interesting features that no other browser has and may appeal to you over the default Chromium browser on Raspberry Pi.
Are you looking to fine-tune performance? Animated gifs can take a toll on memory usage and you can simply turn off such support features in Vivaldi. There is also Reader View for easier reading and Vivaldi’s unique “User Interface Zoom” helps with better viewing.
Extensions is another synonym for heavy resource hog and Vivaldi’s in-built functionality is something that Pi users will fall in love with. Tab grouping, ability to grab a screenshot, find information about any image, take notes while you browse and of course, the side-panel which is addictive for any user who wants to make the most of his browsing.
You can optimise every setting in the Vivaldi browser. This is a great way to boost overall performance and enjoy browsing on your terms. Simply a Pi user’s dream. After all, the bug of creation and ‘making something’ has bitten Pi and Vivaldi users alike
On that note, participate in our special contest, share, win and celebrate the art of inventive browsing.
