Vivaldi is a free web browser from the original Opera Web Browser founders in 1994, designed for Windows and Linux. Download the beta version here.
It has an interface similar to Google Chrome. You have forward, back, refresh, and home keys next to the address bar by default. New tabs are opened with the simple + tab and close with the X tab. It has a little sidebar with quick links to bookmarks, mail (not available yet), downloads, contacts, and notes. Towards the bottom left, just above the status bar, the options gear icon would make more sense if brought up to the top right or even the sidebar where people would look for it first.
You can look at the bottom, and you will find the option to show or hide images and display only cached images to speed up browsing. On a web page, youâ€™re having difficulty reading? Just slide the bar to zoom in or out and reset. You can go nuts between those two features, changing how a page renders 15 different ways, from filters, including grayscale and intensify, to 3D to fonts. This feature is great for anyone having difficulty reading a web page or for fun.
Vivaldi enters a crowded and vocal browser market. People tend to love what they love for a long time. Vivaldi's name does not exactly roll off the tongue, but so far, they got an excellent thing going here. Could it be the next big thing?
