It looks interesting, but it's not free software, so I have no interest
myself.  Firefox/Iceweasel has been serving me well since before it was
Firefox, and Pentadactyl has been my primary UI to it for a long time.  I
don't feel like Mozilla is taking it in a good direction anymore, but if it
ever gets too bad, there's Iceweasel, and there's Pale Moon (which has
committed to "classic" Firefox extension APIs and UI), and there are other
alternatives like Conkeror, uzbl, etc.

Even if you don't care about free software, Vivaldi is made by former Opera
devs, so how do we know they aren't just repeating a cycle?  It could go the
same direction Opera went and need to be rebooted again.  As long as it's
proprietary, that's a risk its users will always face.

My two cents.  :)
