For more than an year now, we have been hearing news about a new browser in the making since its first Public beta. Called as the Vivaldi Browser available for PC, OS X, and Linux desktop operating system, the new browser aims to offer more features and powerful personalization options along with keeping up with the modern web.

Yesterday, April 6th 2016 marked the launch of the first major release of the new browser hitting the version 1.0.

With a founding team of browser pioneers, including Jon von Tetzchner, who co-founded and led Opera Software Vivaldi is being called as the ultimate web power tool for those who need it most. Some of the features which make it different are:

  • Tab Stacks
  • Tab Stack Tiling
  • Sessions
  • Notes
  • Quick commands
  • Speed Dial
  • Better Bookmarks
  • Web Panels
  • Personalized configurations
  • Chrome add-ons support etc.

The UI uses React and JavaScript, as well as Node.js. The core of the browser uses Chromium, ensuring pages render quickly and accurately.

We have been using Vivaldi since its first launch and have updated to the stable build as well. With different themes, and reminding us of the old opera features. It’s worth a try, and its free to download so download it today from
