I use Vivaldi as the only browser on all my machines, although on most of them I use several instances of it. I frequently get a notification that a new version is available, and am asked whether I want to upgrade to it. I believe that Vivaldi might have installed a daemon that checks for new releases and sends the notification when a new version is available.
I've also assumed that I should not upgrade directly from Vivaldi.com, ,as it might create confusion for eopkg. So far, I've always waited for the next update from Solus instead. Is that a righteous course of action, or does it indeed make no difference either way?
Is the decision to upgrade my version of Vivaldi based on the version that's installed on my machines, and where they came from makes no difference? Or is it based strictly on what's in the repository at the time?
It occurs to me that upgraded software is not always put into Shannon immediately for good reasons. Installing from Vivaldi directly could bypass some testing done by the Solus team, thus it's why I always wait to upgrade with eopkg..
