This is a short post in which I will show you how to install Vivaldi Web Browser on Ubuntu 19.10 that has recently come out.

Vivaldi is a quite instant web browser. Created and developed by a former Opera developer, it adds many particularly good options. For example, it uses the Blink engine which is the same as Google Chrome so we will have guaranteed compatibility and speed. On the other hand, it has quite a high customization capacity at almost all levels.

On the other hand, a web browser that does not support extensions is doomed to fail at this time. But as it is based on Chromium it is compatible with the great majority of Google Chrome extensions. So it is a great alternative to the most popular browsers today.

Installing Vivaldi web browser on Ubuntu 19.10

As already mentioned, Vivaldi has very good support for most Linux distributions. However, it is not in the official repositories of the Linux distributions. But we will be able to install it without problems.

First of all, go to Vivaldi’s website.

In the main screen, there it will be detected automatically which is the package that we should download. For example, as I have accessed from Ubuntu 19.10, it already tells me that I should download a DEB package.
