Vivaldi attracts many users for its high-level customization and productivity features. In spite of this, it remains free. Vivaldi, being a Chromium-based browser, extensions from Chrome Web Store can be installed.

Vivaldi looks like Opera at first glance but you’ll see the difference once you start exploring and customizing the browser settings.

Tab management is one of Vivaldi’s greatest assets. There’s a lot that you can do with tabs, you’ll be able to: change tab position, stack tabs, or even hibernate tabs. The Tab Stacks feature allows tab grouping to improve tab visibility and to have less clutter in your browser workspace. Moreover, in Vivaldi’s side panel, you can put your favorite websites there and these sites will appear as pinned.

If you do research, take advantage of the Notes Panel where you can add notes (of course) and take screenshots.

Like Opera GX browser, Vivaldi’s Razer Chroma integration provides a thrilling and immersive browsing experience with lighting effects.

Vivaldi also offers themes and includes a theme scheduler where themes can be automatically changed at specific hours.

Like Opera and Brave browser, Vivaldi has a built-in Adblocker too. It blocks annoying ads, protects you from malicious ads and trackers, and websites you visit load faster.
