While having the most up-to-date software on your computer is usually an excellent idea, the LifeHacker article doesn't say anything about the reason why. Just that you should do this, because they say so. Call me a rebellious fool or whatever, but when I read such garbage, I am inclined to do just the opposite.

Then again, I don't use Chrome on my PC's...where 99.9% of my internet surfing takes place anyway. My systems are really a 'No Chrome'-zone. As I have Android with Google Play, Chrome comes with that like the unwanted stepchild and gets treated as such, because I am not allowed to remove it from my phone.

What's your opinion on Vivaldi?
(I think) it's a Chromium back end, with a power-user type front end made by a chunk of Ex-Opera employees who got grumpy when Opera abandoned Presto and decided to just be a "shell wrapper" on top of Chrome-something.

So Vivaldi is nice because it allows (me) to use most of the Chrome plugins, and a reasonable amount of peace of mind they aren't really using much more data than they have to (compared to many of our Google Knows Too Much concerns.)

So I am a bit shocked at "how much I missed" not keeping up with tech news! I have to "medium soon" go do a password overhaul on some of my email, and I just installed the "password checker" (so even if you don't want that very precise plugin, it's my larger point about Vivaldi in general is one of my pair of Go-to browsers.)
