By

The Norwegian browser company Vivaldi Technologies has released an experimental version of its Vivaldi browser for Linux on ARM devices, including the Raspberry Pi.

This includes the Raspberry Pi Zero, Raspberry Pi 2 and Raspberry Pi 3 — single-board ARM based computers with over 14 million units sold worldwide — as well as CubieBoard, ASUS Tinker Board and others.

“We are excited to unveil Vivaldi for the popular development board Raspberry Pi and other Linux-based ARM devices," Vivaldi Technologies chief executive Jon von Tetzchner (below, right) said.

"Enthusiastic Raspberry Pi users who are looking for a more feature-rich and flexible browser, will find Vivaldi a thrilling experience.

“Vivaldi is a Web surfer’s complete toolbox that you can personalise and make your own. We strive to add more flexibility for the thriving culture of computer hobbyists and hope that every owner of Raspberry Pi will have fun using Vivaldi.”

To reduce resource usage, animated GIFs can be turned off or the advanced Reader View can be used for a clutter-free reading environment.

Vivaldi also has built-in functionality such as tab grouping, screenshot capture, and the ability to take notes right in the browser which, in combination, increase the speed of browsing.
