Jon von Tetzchner, the CEO of Vivaldi, wrote an email to employees and other stakeholders sharing that they've crossed 400k downloads on their initial tech preview. He also shares that they will be starting weekly builds of the cross-platform browser.
Dear friends,Those wanting to try this new browser can download the Linux version for Debian and RPM distributions from Vivaldi.com.
Last week we shared the first technical preview of Vivaldi. We wanted to build a browser for power users like you and me. We expect something different – something better – from the tools we use on the web. We thought a lot of people might feel the same way.
Since last Tuesday, more than 400,000 of you have downloaded Vivaldi. That's more people than live in my native country of Iceland – and almost as many sheep. It's an amazing result for a technical preview of a browser. This has been a great start, but it is only the beginning. Many more out there want a browser built for their way of using the web.
Your support means a great deal to us, so we invite you to stay on the bleeding edge. Even though we have a small team, we intend to deliver a weekly snapshot of our progress. You can download it from our community site, Vivaldi.net.
Thanks for trying Vivaldi. Here's to what's next.
