Vivaldi Technologies released Vivaldi 2.4, a new version of the desktop web browser, to the stable channel today.

The new version introduces new toolbar customization options, bookmark management improvements, and support for multiple user profiles among other features.

Vivaldi 2.4 is already available through the web browser's automatic updates system. You may run a manual check to install the new version of the browser right away by going to Vivaldi Menu > Help > Check for Updates if you don't want to wait for the browser to pick up the update automatically. Standalone downloads are available on Vivaldi's website as well.

Vivaldi 2.4

vivaldi drag toolbar icons

One of the core improvements of Vivaldi 2.4 is better toolbars customization support. Vivaldi supported removing toolbar buttons from the main toolbar for some time; the new version gives new customization options.

All you need to do is hold down the Shift-key on the keyboard to drag icons to another location. Note that this is reserved to some icons, e.g. navigational icons and extension icons but not other toolbar elements such as the address bar or the new profile icon.

You find reset options under Menu > Settings > Appearance > Window Appearance > Toolbar Customizations > Reset Toolbar.

Bookmarking improvements

vivaldi multi bookmark

Vivaldi 2.4 introduces support for bookmarking multiple tabs in one swift operation. Just select multiple tabs using Shift or Ctrl, and right-click the selection to find the new bookmarking option in the context menu.

The bookmarks are saved to a new folder called Saved Tab Selection (Date, Time). There is no option to change the default name but you can do so in the bookmarks manager at any time.

User Profiles

vivaldi user profiles

Vivaldi 2.4 introduces support for user profiles. We reviewed the feature earlier this month already. You may create multiple users to separate browsing activity.

User profiles use individual storage locations to separate extensions, the browsing history, cookies, and other data from one another.

Profiles can be customized individually, e.g. by installing custom themes or mouse gestures. A click on the user profile icon displays the current user and options to load another user or manage user profiles.

Vivaldi's synchronization feature supports user profiles. If you make use of it, user profiles will be synced alongside other data.

Other Vivaldi 2.4 improvements

  • Calculator in Quick Commands to make quick calculations right there. Use it by opening the Quick Commands interface with F2. Type the equation and press the Enter-key to get the result.
  • Option to disable Tab Stacking by drag and drop in the Settings. Also, change the length of the tab hover delay to avoid accidental creations.
  • Double-click to rename tab stacks.
  • Option to open results of a context menu search in the background (Settings > Search).

Closing words

Vivaldi Technologies continues to introduce new customization options to the web browser that set the browser apart from other browsers that limit the functionality.

      Well it is a bit difficulty to distinguish between domains and files for instance.

      I know a service made by google that is similar to Google bookmarks.

    @Ashwin–Thankful you delighted my comment; who knows how many “gamers” would have disagreed!

    The comments section under this very article (3 comments) is identical to the comments section found under the following article:

    Not sure what the issue is, but have seen this issue under some other articles recently but did not report it back then.

    With the cloud, there is no such thing as unlimited storage or privacy. Stop relying on these tech scums. Purchase your own hardware and develop your own solutions.

      This is a certified reddit cringe moment. Hilarious how the article’s author tries to dress it up like it’s anything more than a png for doing the reddit corporation’s moderation work for free (or for bribes from companies and political groups)

    With Google Chrome, it’s only been 1,500 for some time now.

    Anyone who wants to force me in such a way into buying something that I can get elsewhere for free will certainly never see a single dime from my side. I don’t even know how stupid their marketing department is to impose these limits on users instead of offering a valuable product to the paying faction. But they don’t. Even if you pay, you get something that is also available for free elsewhere.

    The algorithm has also become less and less savvy in terms of e.g. English/German translations. It used to be that the bot could sort of sense what you were trying to say and put it into different colloquialisms, which was even fun because it was like, “I know what you’re trying to say here, how about…” Now it’s in parts too stupid to translate the simplest sentences correctly, and the suggestions it makes are at times as moronic as those made by Google Translations.

    If this is a deep-learning AI that learns from users’ translations and the phrases they choose most often – which, by the way, is a valuable, moneys worthwhile contribution of every free user to this project: They invest their time and texts, thereby providing the necessary data for the AI to do the thing as nicely as they brag about it in the first place – alas, the more unprofessional users discovered the translator, the worse the language of this deep-learning bot has become, the greater the aggregate of linguistically illiterate users has become, and the worse the language of this deep-learning bot has become, as it now learns the drivel of every Tom, Dick and Harry out there, which is why I now get their Mickey Mouse language as suggestions: the inane language of people who can barely spell the alphabet, it seems.

    And as a thank you for our time and effort in helping them and their AI learn, they’ve lowered the limit from what was once 5,000 to now 1,500…? A big “fuck off” from here for that! Not a brass farthing from me for this attitude and behaviour, not in a hundred years.
