Vivaldi icon A stylish and fast web browser that provides a complex set of features and tools to help you get the most out of surfing the Internet

Vivaldi is an intuitive and very appealing piece of software whose main purpose resides in offering you a new way of browsing the Internet. Despite being based on the Chromium engine, it offers a series of additional tools and components to serve your every need when visiting your favorite webpages.

Feature-packed yet unobtrusive GUI

The program displays a compact and intuitive user interface, allowing you to open multiple tabs and organize them with the help of the ‘Tabs Stacks’ feature, so you can switch between them with ease, either via mouse actions or keyboard shortcuts. However, it cannot run in multiple instances or several simultaneous windows.

In a retractable side-panel, Vivaldi offers you various handy tools to enhance your browsing experiences, while also providing you with one-click access to its ‘Settings’ window, enabling you to customize its usage to suit your particular needs. These are also accessible by clicking on the utility’s icon in the upper left corner, which reveals a series of menus and submenus.

Visit websites, create bookmarks or write down notes in just a few moves

Vivaldi allows you to surf the Internet just like any other browser, offering you basic functions as such ‘Forward’, ‘Back’, ‘Home’ or ‘Refresh’, as well as a search box that can perform Google lookups.

It also offers a more advanced feature, ‘Site Info’, which provides you with details about the cookies and site data, letting you manage ‘Permissions’ (images, JavaScript, plugins, popups, notifications, mouse lock or others) and view ‘Connection’ information; this can prove useful, particularly if you are concerned about your online safety.

From the side-panel, you can access and manage your ‘Bookmarks’, being able to group them into categories, open them in other tabs or remove them altogether. You can also manage your contacts’ information (email address, phone number, postal address) or you can write down notes and grab screenshots of the current webpage.

Moreover, Vivaldi offers extensive support for keyboard shortcuts, allowing you to perform almost any action you need through a few keystrokes. These can be customized from the ‘Settings’ section, along with other ‘Appearance’ related aspects and ‘Privacy’ preferences.

An intuitive Chromium-based web browser

To conclude, Vivaldi is an interesting application that you can resort to as a more practical alternative to regular browsers, thanks to the helpful functions that if provides you with. Being in its development stage, it still has some kinks to work out, but as it is, Vivaldi presents a lot of promise for the future.
