Opera co-founder launches Vivaldi browser for desktop

The Vivaldi Web browser which was launched in 2015, in the form of technical preview, has now come out of beta and the stable version is available to download. Vivaldi v1.0 is available for Windows, OS X and Linux platforms and can be downloaded from the company website.

To recall, the Vivaldi browser is developed by Oslo-based Vivaldi technologies founded by Opera co-founder and former CEO Jon Von Tetzchner. The browser was developed along with a small team of 35 people.

The core of Vivaldi browser uses Chromium, supports Chrome add-ons and the UI users React and JavaScript as well as Node.js. The browser offers features like personalized notes, bookmarks with small screen shots and speed dials with options for multiple groups and folders. Multiple tabs can be combined into one for easy browsing of related sites. With these features the company hopes to attract high-volume users.

Highlights of Vivaldi browser
  • Tab Stacks: Drop tabs on top of each other to create a stack. It’s the fastest way to reduce clutter and keep organized.
  • Tab Stack Tiling: Tile tab stack and see multiple pages at the same time! With multiple tab stacks, it is like having multiple desktops.
  • Sessions: Save your favorite set of tabs as a session for later retrieval.
  • Notes:  Vivaldi can remember which site you were browsing at the time, and allow you to take screenshots as well.
  • Quick commands: Access open tabs, bookmarks, history, settings and more through a command interface.
  • Mouse gestures and keyboard shortcuts: Mouse gestures turn a flick of the wrist into almost any action in the browser. Keyboard shortcuts do the same with simple key combinations.
  • Speed Dial: Your favorite sites and bookmarks easily accessible from any blank tab. Include Groups and Folders for even more Speed Dials!
  • Better bookmarks: Access your bookmarks from the bookmarks panel, bookmarks manager, bookmark bar and of course Speed Dial.
  • Web Panels: View websites in your Vivaldi sidebar. The perfect way to browse tweets, Facebook posts, or chat alongside your primary browsing window. We like to say it’s the next best thing to a “Boss button” for the web.
