What's New in version 3.4.2066.76:

More is more: configure context menus, add custom links:

  • Configurable menus, a functionality that Vivaldi introduced recently, lets you move your most frequent actions to the top of the menu in the vertical menu, facilitating quick access, and adjusting to individual workflows.
  • Now menu customization goes up a notch and you are able to configure context menus (right-click menus). Rearrange, add or remove the actions needed and tailor the browser according to your preferred workflow.
  • For example, move 'Open in New Background Tab' to the top in the Bookmark Bar Item Context menu, add a direct link to the Vivaldi Forum in the main Vivaldi menu or make the menus compact by removing all the menu items that are not used.
  • With no limit to customization, you can even add fun elements by renaming the menu items with emojis.
  • Furthermore, custom entries can also be added to menus. For example, add the new Vivaldia game or any preferred site to the menu via an 'Open link' command.
  • Adjust the menu via 'Settings ? Appearance ? Menu'.

Periodic Reload of Tab: Stay up to date:

  • Vivaldi's comprehensive tab handling gets even better with Periodic Reload of Tab ensuring you are on the latest version of the site when you switch to a tab.
  • To enable Periodic Reload of Tab, right-click on a tab, move the mouse over the Periodic Reload menu entry, and select one of the available reload intervals.
  • The reload values for the tab can be set via a fixed list on the context menu of the tab or through quick commands to set an interval value (in seconds, with a minimum of 60).
  • There's also a small countdown animation a progress bar displayed underneath the tab to show the remaining time until the tab is reloaded automatically.

Periodic Reload of tabs is particularly useful while using other features in the browser. For example:

  • Set a tab with a news site on period reload when using Tab Tiling.
  • Or while working on another tab.
  • Or while refreshing a page that displays random content on every load.
  • Or simply to limit the memory usage of a site if it increases over time.
  • The Periodic Reload feature can be easily moved into a more convenient location or removed courtesy of the new context menu editing options.

And there's more:

  • Capture directly to a new note: Capture options now include the ability to capture a screenshot directly into a new note. You can highlight the part of a page or choose a full page capture and create a note, a very helpful feature for doing research.
  • Choose a new avatar: You have the option to select a custom image for non-synced profiles via a new plus icon in the top left of the profile manager.
  • Easier Speed Dial folder creation: Simply drag one item onto another to create folders within your Speed Dial, making it even easier to reorganize and optimize access to your favorite web sites.
  • Simpler tiling: All tiling commands now take into consideration your previously active tab. So that your current and last accessed tab will be tiled, when not working with selections or stacks. You can activate tiling commands via Quick Commands, keyboard shortcuts or even map your own mouse gestures.

What's New in version 3.1.1929.29:

  • Vivaldi 3.1 arrives with powerful viewing and editing options in the new Notes Manager. Available on Windows, MacOS, and Linux, it also sports configurable menus and is faster on startup.
  • Vivaldi 3.1 is here. Today, we unveil a first-of-its-kind full-page Notes Manager, an upgrade to our unique Notes feature. You'll also find the much-requested option to configure menus, as well as speed improvements.
  • Vivaldi's distinguishing features Tab Stacks, Tab Tiling, Vertical Tabs, Window Panel, Web Panels, Page Capture, Speed Dials, Mouse Gestures, Bookmark Manager, Tracker and Ad blocker are built-in and give more flexibility than any other browser.
  • Everyone deserves a browser that can be adapted to their way of working and needs. And we are proud to build features that fit in your workflow.
  • Earlier this week, we also upgraded the Vivaldi browser on Android which, too, sports unique functionality.

Notes Manager, the next level of Notes:

  • Unique to Vivaldi, the Notes feature lets you write down ideas and inspirations in the browser's sidebar. A great research aid, Notes support the Markdown syntax and can automatically attach screenshots and the address of the web page being viewed added to a note.
  • In the new version, this signature feature goes a notch higher introducing a Notes Manager with a full-blown notes editor that includes visual editing. This is a big jump from the original basic note-taking implementation.
  • The new Notes Manager offers capabilities that feel closer to word processing than to note-taking. The much more powerful notes editor displays notes on a full-page with a text formatting toolbar. With more space and tools at hand, it is suitable for working with both complex and shorter notes.
  • Viewing notes in the Notes Manager is also much more granular than in the sidebar. It displays information such as note title, creation date, number of attachments, and more.
  • The Notes Manager can be accessed from the Start Page.

Highlights of the Notes Manager:

  • Text formatting: Text can be hyperlinked and formatted with common styles such as bold, italics, and headings via a toolbar at the top or keyboard shortcuts. Even more, it can be achieved with Markdown formatting.
  • WYSIWYG Editor: The 'What you see is what you get' editor allows immediate changes to document in its styled form.
  • Find text: The Ctrl F shortcut looks for certain text inside a particular note.
  • Undo-Redo: CTRL+Z reverses the last action; CTRL+Y is used to undo the reverse.
  • Word count: A character and word count is displayed at the end of the note.
  • Attach images: Images can be added from the right end of the toolbar.
  • Full-screen editing: Notes can be edited without any distraction in a full-screen view, or along with a detailed notes tree view that can be sorted by note title, content, creation date, associated address or number of attachments.
  • New notes: They can be added from a webpage selection via the context menu, through Quick Commands, deleted, and organized into folders.
  • Note search: Ability to search through notes with a full-text search box right at the top.

Sync Notes across devices:

  • Vivaldi's secure syncing of notes content across desktop and Android devices is protected with end-to-end encryption. Notes can be used to store some snippets of code as well. User data is stored on Vivaldi's own secure servers hosted in Iceland.
  • This means you can compose and view notes safely across devices. For example, you can start writing a note on your Android device, and finish writing it later, or simply view it, on your computer.
  • Notes Manager, the only built-in note-taking tool in a browser:
  • Our philosophy is having tools built in the browser and the Notes manager is part of it. This means you can rely less on extensions and third-party apps which can hamper performance and pose a threat to privacy and security.

Configurable Menus:

  • We always try to capture your imagination and give you multiple ways to access your favorite features so that you can browse exactly the way you want.
  • You asked for configurable menus. We've got them!
  • You can now move the most frequently used actions to the top of the menu in the vertical menu, facilitating quick access, and adjusting to individual workflows.
  • In addition, add items that are not accessible from the main menu, something that makes your Vivaldi set-up unique. Similarly, removing items from the menu gives a decluttered look, if that's what you prefer.
  • Adjust your menu via 'Settings ? Appearance ? Menu'.

Speed improvements:

  • You'll find significant speed enhancements including faster startup and better handling of tabs in the new version. With overall improvements under the hood, you'll experience a snappier Vivaldi.
