Vivaldi Web Browser
is a free web browser built on the Chromium
code base (which is the same code base for the Chrome browser). CLASSE-IT
has chosen to support Vivaldi because of its focus on privacy and its stable release schedule. Also, Vivaldi's rendering engine is widely compatibile with modern websites.
Vivaldi default bookmarks
Vivaldi ships with a complete list of example bookmarks. These may be extraneous beyond demonstrating the full range of bookmark features in Vivaldi. If you want to clear them out before adding your own bookmarks do the following:
- Go to Bookmarks -> Manage Bookmarks.
- Select the top bookmark entry.
- Shift + click on the bottom bookmark entry (do not select the "Trash" entry).
- Press Delete on your keyboard.

This is automatically set on all CLASSE-managed Windows laptops.
A similar workaround should exist for all Chromium-based browsers. Please email email@example.com
with problems or questions.
