Software update: Vivaldi 5.4

Spread the love

Version 5.4 of the Vivaldi web browser has been released. Vivaldi is a web browser being developed by former Opera employees. It is mainly aimed at power users and Opera users before the switch to Chromium, although this browser is also based on it. Vivaldi has extensive features, such as mouse gestures, tab stacking, extensive keyboard shortcuts and annotation on web pages. The browser is free and is being developed for Windows, Linux, macOS and Android. The release notes for this release can be found below.

The new Vivaldi gets the ability to mute Web Panels, customizable Rocker Gestures, and an improved Vivaldi Mail.

The latest version Vivaldi 5.4 on desktops highlights the ability to turn off the sound in Web Panels, program what Rocker Gestures can do, and a fine-tuned Vivaldi Mail, Calendar, and Feed Reader. Jam-packed with improvements across the board, Vivaldi is now faster and better, including our recently launched Vivaldi Mail, Calendar, and Feed Reader. Ever since we launched this trio, we’ve focused on polishing and fine-tuning it.

The Web Panels in the browser’s slide-out sidebar gets the ability to turn off the sound, just like the way you can mute tabs, giving more control over which sound source you’d like to listen to. Rocker Gestures, a part of the Mouse Gestures capabilities, help navigate back and forward with your mouse buttons (click right + left = back). Now, you can assign any command you want to both gestures making them customizable.

Sharing of text is quick with the added support to highlight text and generate a link to that highlight. An option, “Always use secure connections”, has been included for secure browsing.
