I wanted to try out the new Vivaldi browser, so I downloaded and installed the latest v. 1.0.435.46. It's supposedly running, and Task Manager tells me it's using about 67 MB of RAM, but it doesn't appear in any windows. Tried a reinstall too. Would this be an XP problem? I can't run Chrome and sometimes Opera won't run in XP.

Since XP is no longer a supported. You will find this is a recurring theme of finding secondary browsers of the latest release working in XP. Since you already find that Chrome does not work with XP. Vivaldi is a Chromium based browser, it will not work in XP either unfortunately.

According to the Vivaldi web site, version 1.0.435.436 was/is the last version compatible with Windows XP.

See here: https://vivaldi.com/download/?lang=en_US

So, that older version ought to run under XP.


Having said that, I agree that it's time for XP users to move on to a supported OS with supported browsers and supported software/hardware/drivers.
