Vivaldi Browser Improves Profile Management, Blocks Abusive Ads and More!

At Vivaldi, we continue to focus on our two hallmarks - privacy and customization. We are always looking to enhance what a browser should provide, and the latest version of Vivaldi has a handful of new features that do just that. We've improved security by blocking advertisements on sites with abusive ad practices. There are new ways to navigate quicker, customize user profiles along with overall improvements that add more flexibility to Vivaldi's intuitive user interface. Browse safe with no abusive ads We want you to be safe while on the web, and worry less about who's abusing you with dangerous ads. We've added a new functionality to block adverts that use abusive technologies and ads designed to be misleading. The Abusive ad-blocker functionality stops ads from sites that are causing you problems, such as pop-ups that prevent you from leaving the site. The Abusive ad-blocker gives the browser access to a blocklist that has been enabled by default and can be turned off in the "Privacy" section of Vivaldi Settings. This feature is an addition to our wide range of privacy settings. The blocklist is hosted on our end-to-end encrypted servers. It is updated from the server automatically by the browser, and applied to intrusive websites without needing to contact the server each time. Going forward, the blocklist of abusive ads gives us the opportunity to consider adding similar, related functionality for the benefit of our users. The way that we've implemented this functionality is an interesting step in the direction of relying less on third-party services. More personality to user profiles We know that you love to make Vivaldi personal. And we always work towards improving every feature so that you feel it is built precisely for you. We've got great feedback on our support for User Profiles and based on that we've added new ways to customise those for you. For the uninitiated, you can create multiple "users" without logging into a different operating system user account, or the need to maintain multiple standalone installations of Vivaldi. The inherited default set of avatars clearly needed more customization even if you are logged in through your Vivaldi account. Now you can make this process much easier and personal for non-synced profiles with the following additions: * Update the avatars * Add and delete profiles in the pop-up * Edit avatar within the pop-up More highlights of Vivaldi 2.6 We want you to stay ahead, browse smarter and faster. Just like our previous updates, this one is no exception adding more efficiency and convenience to your browsing. Filter saved passwords: Imagine scrolling through a long list to find your saved passwords, for example, a particular bank account? Go to Settings -> Privacy and you can easily find your saved passwords by filtering either through account names or websites. Super convenient! Keep a tab on unread tabs in the Window Panel: When you open a link in a background tab, you'll be notified in the Window Panel if it is unread. The unread tab counter tells you precisely the number of tabs that still need your attention. Navigate faster with 'Find in Page': Are you a keyboard lover looking for a specific word or a term in a lengthy article or post? You can find whatever you are looking for much faster with 'Find in Page' - if the search result is a link, it can be opened instantly using Ctrl+Enter. Visually enhanced Search Field: The magnifying glass on the Search Field on the right side of the Address Bar can now display the favicon of the active search engine, helping you to easily identify the search engine. Enable this under Settings > Search. Game is still on: Our previous update with Razer Chroma integration grabbed quite a few eyeballs but this time we've got your ears as well. Users requested for support for Razer headphone devices and we've added it. Performance improvements to speed up Vivaldi We've made performance improvements that will appeal to those of you who work with loads of tabs. There is a marked improvement if you tile tabs into split-screen views, or often move tabs to new windows. Opening, closing, and resizing of Panels in the sidebar is also much snappier. Even though the summer has set in the Northern Hemisphere, we are continuing to build Vivaldi that is just right for you! At the same time, we are also laying the foundation for upcoming future releases. As always, thanks for your feedback! Keep them coming in and download Vivaldi 2.6 right away.
