Vivaldi is a New Browser introduced by Former CEO of Opera

The new browser Vivaldi is based on Chromium and it has been aimed at power users.

Opera’s former CEO Jon von Tetzchner will be launching the first preview of this new browser Vivaldi that will be aimed specifically at power users. Opera basically started when in 1994 two programmers started working on a web browser with the idea of making a really fast browser.

They wanted to develop a browser that could be capable of running on limited hardware keeping in mind the requirements of individuals. This is how Opera came into existence. From there on Opera gained a lot of recognition and the small community grew large.

Opera kept on developing and improving its software based on its user’s feedback. However in today’s fast moving world Opera no longer serves the purpose of its users who had helped the browser grow. That is why a new browser has been developed. This browser will serve the fast developing world of today, a browser that will be rich in functionality, highly flexible and will put the user first. 

So the first Technical preview is now available for users. It will give the users an idea of how this browse will work and also show them the direction of the product. Moreover all of the features that are to be present in the original product are still missing but still it will satisfy everyone once they use it.

The users have been advised and encouraged to give feedback once they use the browser in order to discuss all the issues and problems. For this purpose there is an active forum where the users can give their feedback directly with the developers. Well this is actually the best way to make any product better and the developers have made the right decision in this regard. 

For all the keyboard lovers out there this web browser is going to be a wonderful experience. The developers have provided the web browser with Quick Commands. These Quick Commands will allow the users to quickly search through different settings, open tabs, bookmarks, history and much more with just a single keyboard shortcut. There is also the option of customizing your own Quick Command menu which allows making one’s own commands and running them efficiently and quickly.

The developers have also equipped the site with Speed Dial feature. So now all of the favorite sites can be easily accessed from one place. Users can now also create multiple Speed Dial groups. This feature will definitely be quite helpful for users as less time will be wasted in opening their favorite sites. Vivaldi also has a very unique feature that makes it stand out from the rest and this unique feature is that it has been built on modern Web technologies. The developers have used JavaScript and React to create the user interface with the help of Node.js and a long list of NPM modules. 

Currently the Vivaldi team comprises of 25 employees and Jon von Tetzchner is the sole funder of the project. So let’s wish him luck for his new web browser that seems will make an impact once it’s out.
