Vivaldi Technologies released the first major version update of 2021 for the company's Vivaldi browser for the Android operating system today. Vivaldi 3.6 for Android follow's last week's release of Vivaldi 3.6 for desktop operating systems.

The update is already available on Google Play and as a consequence as a direct update on devices that support it.

Vivaldi 3.6 introduces a number of new features including one that is called Page Actions.

Page Actions allows users of the browser to modify the appearance of sites by applying preset filters. A tap on the Vivaldi menu and the selection of Page Actions from the menu that opens displays the available filters.

Available filters range from grayscale and black & white to inverting colors and a page minimap that is displayed next to a site's scrollbar in the Vivaldi browser.

Vivaldi users may apply one or multiple filters on a page, and these are applied instantly when selected. The selection is remembered by the mobile browser for the entire site. Filters are applied to any page you visit on the site in question, even across browsing sessions. Filters may be reset by toggling them in the Page Actions menu while you are on the site they are applied to.

Vivaldi 3.6 for supports other new features besides Page Actions. The developers have added a QR Code scanner to the application which users may launch by long-tapping on the Vivaldi app icon and selecting Scan QR Code, by selecting the option in the URL field, or through the search widget.

The scanner uses the device's camera, and you need to give Vivaldi permission to use it. Once done, you are able to scan QR codes with the device's camera.

The new mobile version of Vivaldi introduces support for external download managers, which can be configured under Vivaldi Menu > Settings > Downloads > External Download Manager. A third-party program needs to be installed, and it may then be selected in Vivaldi to handle file downloads.

The last new feature introduces a medium size option for Speed Dial tiles on the start page and new tab page of the web browser.

Vivaldi is available for free for devices running Android 5 or higher. The first version of the Vivaldi web browser for Android was released in 2019.

Closing Words

Vivaldi 3.6 is a usability update first and foremost. The new Page Actions feature provides users with options to change the appearance of a site. The available filters are limited in this release. A filter to turn off images or media files on a specific site would come in handy, among other things.

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

    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.
