Vivaldi 1.4 is released with more control! Schedule, Restore and get more flexibility!

Back in August, we released Vivaldi browser 1.3 with theme support and received lots of great feedback. Thank you! In less than a month, we are back with yet another release with some new features as well as many improvements.

Most of us spend significant amount of time every day on the web so we believe you deserve the best possible experience for YOU. Vivaldi is all about personalisation and customisation so that you can make your web browser just the way you like it to be. We feel that this release is getting us a step closer to achieving that vision.

Mood play with Theme Scheduling

When a user tweets:

It only strengthens our belief that we are on the right track. We are building Vivaldi that is made for YOU and to make it more personal, we have added the capability to change the browser theme with the clock. Theme scheduling allows you to set your favourite theme to your preferred time. You can also switch your favorite theme according to your schedule or mood as many times as you want during the day.

User feedback is the core of Vivaldi’s product development process

It’s no secret that Vivaldi has more features than any other browsers out there. On top of that, our very active user community shares lots of great feedback on our existing feature with us. This particular feature came to life based on a feedback from one of our users. Now, you can restore the last closed tab by middle-clicking on the trash bin icon. If you accidentally click a close a tab, don’t worry! You can undo it with just a single click.

More flexibility

It’s very interesting to observe how people use Vivaldi. We’ve seen some screenshots or videos showing how people incorporate Web panel to their every day browsing. So based on the feedback, we have added the capability to have web panels of varying widths, as different web panels require different widths to perform optimally. This will give you more flexibility over how your content is presented. Again, it’s all about giving controls.

We are trying our best to be on top of our game whether it’s bringing updates to you faster or providing new features and adding more finesse to them. We owe it to you, our users who have constantly provided us with feedback which helps us to grow.

Thank you for taking the time to provide us with such detail on how YOUR browser should shape up. We look at each and every one of your feedback to understand better what can make Vivaldi better for you, now and in the future.
