New Vivaldi Web Browser Update Brings Some Neat Features
Vivaldi is created by former Opera CEO who wanted to create a competitor to the well-known web browser but that is targeted at a very different user based.
Vivaldi web browser is exclusively aimed at those that know their way around the depths of a computer, meaning it is only for “Power users” but a recent update has added some really nice features akin to those found in Opera.
One of the most notable of these features is the addition of editable Mouse Gestures which for instances allows users to be able to certain actions by just drawing a gesture. For example, if you if you want to “close a tab in the background” or move back to the previous page, all you have to do is draw the gesture and click the “Save.”
This is somewhat a niche feature especially for a browser that aimed at a close of users who love playing around with settings but it could be very handy nonetheless.
Vivaldi also comes with an improved zoom and accessibility feature which allows users to be able to specific custom zoom levels for each tab without having it spill over to other tabs.
The max level at which users can adjust the zoom level is set at 500% of the actual page size. – which is quite massive if you ask me – and lowest can be set at 20%.
Additionally, Vivaldi 1.2 now comes with a set of tab commands which includes allowing users to appoint web pages as a tab’s starting point, allow users to view two tabs side by side in a tile format or close multiple tabs with just a single keyboard shortcut.
The cross-platform web browser is available for Mac and Windows aside from Linux.
