I want to use Canvas with a different browser called Vivaldi...

I know it's not a "supported browser", but can I use a plug in or get permission for it?

Thanks for the advice. I'm not on a DSL connection, but I'll look into it. It looks like I have success using the browser from my physical campus, but at home just a few miles away my private internet won't connect (I use Century Link). I'll look into it, but for the meantime, thank you for all your feedback!

If it works on campus and not off campus and given the error i would suggest checking your proxy settings. That error is a web server closing the connection because the ssl connection could not be established.  It could be your browser is trying to use the on campus proxy fromout side the campus for some urls and it is being disallowed.  I dont know the browser so cant advise on where those settings will be.

Hope this helps

I too had used Opera for about six months a number of years ago as I wanted to experience the product due to the touted speed and security.  But I ended up with Chrome for various reasons:  Google apps, Drive, higher availability of plug-ins, a persistent bookmark toolbar on all my devices, etc. 

ps.  Opera is currently at .59% - 1.3% market share, depending on the source.

I have been using Canvas with Vivaldi since Day 1 and have had only one issue with it (Arc). 

When I am forced to use Chrome, I feel as if I am going back to Windows 95.

Vivaldi is the best browser available and it gets better with each release.
