  1. I’m in shock. Just happened to find this today as I was troubleshooting video problems on my old single core pc I keep near the garage for youtube how-to videos. The only operating system the old timer can handle is ubuntu 14.04, but firefox is painfully slow and won’t video. Opera 12 is fast enough, but will barely play video. I installed vivaldi with no problem and am enjoying what feels like a modern pc. I don’t know why some say vivaldi is slow!
