Vivaldi introduces vertical reading mode in new release

By

Norwegian browser company Vivaldi Technologies has released version 1.14 of its browser that is aimed at power users, and has introduced a vertical reading mode in this version.

The new version also includes Markdown support for Notes, rearrangable Web panels and the ability to re-order search engines.

The vertical reader view allows users to see a reading environment free of clutter; fonts can be changed, line height and column width adjusted and a dark of light background used.

This mode of viewing is intended to cater to the Chinese (simplified and traditional), Japanese and Korean languages.

“The needs of our users come first, no matter where they live or what language they read, write or speak. The vertical reader mode gives them more flexibility to access content on the Web on their terms,” said Jon von Tetzchner, the chief executive of Vivaldi.

“We are confident that with this unique feature, users of the East Asian languages all across the globe will have yet another reason to choose Vivaldi.”

Using the Markdown feature, users can add formatting like headers, bold fonts and bullet points to notes that are taken while using the Web. Simple HTML can also be previewed.

The rearrangable Web panels can now be reorganised and customised in the browser sidebar. The choice of Web pages can be prioritised on the fly to make browsing more interactive and convenient.

Also new in version 1.14 is the ability to re-order search engines, introduced in response to user requests.

“Over the last three years, Vivaldi has introduced a series of novel features and customisation options that keep our users productive, inspired and engaged on the Web,” said von Tetzchner.

“We are trying to capture our users’ imaginations and focus on giving them multiple ways of accessing their favourite features so that they can browse exactly the way they want to.”
