Vivaldi Web Browser Features
- Adaptive Interface: Vivaldi’s color scheme will adapt as you browse the web, much like a
Chameleon adapts to its surroundings. A clean and modern look complements the content.
- Spatial Navigation: Say goodbye to tab-cycling through web page content now. You can move in every axis using the arrow keys. Get faster anywhere on the web page using your keyboard.
- Sync: Have multiple computers that you want to keep in sync? Vivaldi Sync enables this beautifully. Your bookmarks, history, passwords, and settings can all be synchronized across various instances of Vivaldi through the encrypted sync infrastructure. Watch out – It’s coming soon.
- Email: Now that’s a double treat – your e-mail client built into your web browser. E-mail is still undeniably important to many of us. Vivaldi offers a robust, efficient, lightweight mail client. And, it’s going to be called M3. Stay tuned for updates.
- Powerful Bookmarks: How many bookmarks do you have in your browser? 56, 225, or 1056? If you use bookmarks a lot, you have come to the right place! With Vivaldi’s bookmark manager you can organize and access your bookmark efficiently. You can set your own tags and necks for lightning-fast access.
- Web Panels: Web Panels allow you to view websites as a panel on the sidebar of your Vivaldi browser. Read news, follow conversations on social media, chat with your friends, and much more, while using the main browser window separately. It’s the next best thing to having a “Boss Button” on your browser.
