Home Software New Vivaldi version has tab management window

Norway-based Vivaldi Technologies has released version 1.13 of its Vivaldi browser which is targeted at power users who are choosy about configuring things their own way.

The main feature in the new version is the new Window Panel that makes managing multiple tabs easier.

There are also improvements in performance and new file download features.

The Window Panel opens a “tree-style view of tabs” on the side of the browser window. From there, users can conveniently manage tabs by doing the following:

  • Get an easy overview of all open tabs as a list.
  • Drag tabs to change their order.
  • Group tabs by topic to save space.
  • Tile Tab Stacks to compare several web pages side by side.
  • Hibernate unused tabs or Tab Stacks for better performance.
  • Pin tabs to ensure they always stay open.
  • Mute sound in specific tabs.

“Vivaldi offers more built-in options for managing tabs than any other modern browser. Users can choose where they want to position the tabs; they can navigate to them via their keyboard; group them and so on. The new Window Panel takes tab management to the next level,” said Jon von Tetzchner, chief executive of Vivaldi Technologies.

The new downloading features are:

  • a warning dialog when closing the browser before a download is complete;
  • the ability to pause and resume downloads; and
  • download speed displayed in the download progress bar.

While rolling out new differentiating features, the Vivaldi team has reiterated its philosophy of going native. Vivaldi’s signature features like tab grouping, built-in screenshot capture tool, ability to take notes right in the browser, and endless UI customisation options already provide control to the users.

“We are working hard to give our users a browser that does not rely on add-ons. We aim to develop more and more functionality that is built-in natively into the browser and offers a secure, speedy and complete browsing experience,” said von Tetzchner.
