How Vivaldi looks like

Vivaldi description

It may seem to users who have downloaded the browser Vivaldi that this is the shell of the old Opera was put on the Chrome engine. So you can briefly describe the product that turned out to be developers Vivaldi.

The main advantages noted by those who have already downloaded and installed Vivaldi's browser are his features and the ease of switching from other popular browsers. Let's start with the second paragraph. The browser uses the popular Chromium engine. Chrome and Opera are written on the same engine. This makes it easy to import all settings. Browser extensions for Chrome will also work on Vivaldi.

As for Vivaldi features, here it inherits some of the features of the Opera interface and complements it with unique innovations that make working with the browser even easier. One has only to start using one of these options, and you can’t imagine how you could live without it. Tab grouping function is quite a good solution. Simply drag the tab over the other. Those who are familiar with Opera, will find the usual vertical panel on the left. Previewing a tab looks quite a good solution, since it is not always possible to identify a tab by just the title. Another useful option is that you can display several tabs in one window. This is similar to how the screen on Windows can be divided into parts. The difference is that the window remains one, and the contents of this window is separated. This can be convenient for example, for those who want to always have an instant messenger, chat or social network on hand and not switch between tabs. At the very bottom of the page there is another panel with settings for viewing the content. Here you can choose a color scheme, such as monochrome or sepia. This can be useful for reading. There are also fancy settings that change the page geometry. Maybe someone finds it funny.

As for speed, the free Vivaldi browser at the moment can hardly be called “easy and productive”. It shows good performance with a small number of open tabs. According to some tests, Vivaldi even outpaces Opera and other competitors with three tabs open. But when the number of tabs reaches 20, the browser speed drops and any browser from the top three shows the best results. It is fair to say that today most users are "abusing" the number of open tabs.
