Vivaldi Browser 1.15 update released


Vivaldi is a cross-platform web browser built for – and with – the web. A browser based on the Blink engine (same in Chrome and Chromium) that is fast, but also a browser that is rich in functionality, highly flexible and puts the user first. A browser that is made for you. Vivaldi is produced with love by a founding team of browser pioneers, including former CEO Jon Stephenson von Tetzchner, who co-founded and led Opera Software. Vivaldi’s interface is very customizable. Vivaldi combines simplicity and fashion to create a basic, highly customizable interface that provides everything a internet user could need. The browser allows users to customize the appearance of UI elements such as background color, overall theme, address bar and tab positioning, and start pages. Vivaldi features the ability to "stack" and "tile" tabs, annotate web pages, add notes to bookmarks and much more.

All round improvements:

  • Capture tweaks - The Capture feature is a great example of our user-centric approach. One of our most popular built-in tools to communicate online now allows you to select the last option to persist even after restarting the browser.
  • Full-Screen mode enhancements - If you use the full-screen mode often, you can enjoy more screen real estate as you can easily toggle the appearance of the UI on and off through the Keyboard Shortcuts. While you are in the full-screen mode, you can access the various elements of the UI such Address Bar and Panels.
