Vivaldi browser

A Web browser for Windows, Mac, Linux and Android from Vivaldi Technologies, a company founded by the former CEO and co-founder of Opera Software. Named after the Italian composer Antonio Vivaldi and introduced in 2016, Vivaldi later moved from its original Presto rendering engine to Chromium, allowing people to switch from Chrome and use the same browser extensions (see Chromium).

Although Chromium based, Vivaldi has a large number of additional features; for example, it has more options for customizing the user interface than any other browser. Favorite sites can share a side window, and a guest profile can be created that deletes cookies and history. A "boutique" browser for the computer aficionado. See Opera browser.


Vivaldi Supports Privacy
One of the major features of Vivaldi is its tracker and ad blocking, which is configured by the user.







Mouse Gestures
Although mouse gestures can be added to other browsers via extensions, Vivaldi includes gestures that can be customized for a dozen operations on tabs, links and pages.
