Hey I 'm glad you’re moving away from chrome!
To me even to some others here the step might seem small going from chrome to vivaldi is already a step forward.
And I definitely get why you prefer it so much. There are so many useful features integrated into the browser like tab stacking the side-panel moving tabs left right wherever etc.
It definitely feels like a more ‘complete’ package in a sense then some other browsers.
Do keep in mind though, Vivaldi’s blog is more a show then reality, at least it seems vivaldi itself doesn’t really know where they want to stand and being in the middle is awkward.
Especially since most of their posts they make themselves out to be privacy evangelists.
And this is just plain BS.
Also abou tor.
Tor is a whole other ballgame. There are some whom use the tor browser as a daily driver yes: however for most people and from what I could make up with what I could read from your post.
You likely won’t be there yet, (not that you have to get there). and would prefer a browser which allows you to login to websites and keep most of your data stored, to be conveniently accessible.
Tor is not that.
The Tor browser uses the onion protocol. [link vid].
Every user of tor has the same fingerprint if used correctly (don’t install extensions or change settings apart from those you see in the option menu’s.)
So this way every person whom uses the tor network through the tor browser, - which is a modified version of firefox. Has almost identical fingerprints, - say to the servers visited by a tor browser all tor browsers have the same style of dressing and haircut.
Along with that tor browser is a very valuable tool whenever you feel like looking up something online you don’t want your ISP government, insurance company or whomever else to find out about searching such and such.
I would say: download it here: https://www.torproject.org/download/
And try it out.
As for a more private browser Vivaldi is perhaps better then chrome but still largely build on the same codebase, also as far as I am aware they haven’t put any effort into removing google spyware from their version of chrome/ium.
