Vivaldi 3.2 has launched today, the update brings improved tracker and ad-blocking functions as well as improved tab management. As with other updates, Vivaldi 3.2 ships with other minor improvements such automatically changing backgrounds on Speed Dial when you’re in dark mode, profile pictures can be synced across Vivaldi installations, and the ‘Copy to note’ feature has received a fix after users experienced difficulties.
The biggest feature in this update is the re-organisation of the tabs interface. With all the tab function buttons being moved to the bottom bar, users will be able to press them with just one hand. These buttons let you open tabs, switch to private mode, bring up recently closed tabs, and list synced tabs.
If you fancy yourself as a bit of a privacy aficionado, you’ll be glad to hear that Vivaldi 3.2 introduces custom block and unblock lists to let you choose which sites you want to block trackers and ads on; this extra control allows you to put truly irritating sites on a leash while continuing to support your favourite sites through ad revenues.
A final point worth mentioning is that Vivaldi’s Tab Strip has received a name change; it’s now called Tab Bar. The firm said this offers uniformity across its desktop and mobile versions of the browser. If you’re not a fan of the tab bar on mobile, you always have the option of disabling it in the settings.
In order to begin using the Vivaldi mobile browser, head on over to the Google Play Store. The available version contains all the new features mentioned above.
