Hey guys!

How are y’all doing today? Been a while since we really caught up, seriously.

Then there’s Firefox — I was one of the early people on Firefox because it was fast. But over time it slowed down. I’ve heard they revamped it this year, so I’ll probably check it out later this week. 

The one I tried out today is called Vivaldi and is kind of cool.

According to my research, Vivaldi is known for giving the user complete control over the browser itself.  That’s impressively true!  Continue reading
