Thumbs up Vivaldi 4 - a milestone for desktop and Android!

Ghacks will probably have a review on all the recent changes.

https://vivaldi.com/new/

It's just nice to see this chrome-based underdog has kept on adding new features in such little time!

So much better than another browser i know that keeps doing away with features users came to appreciate over the years...

Can there be a better review than Martin Brinkmann's?

Vivaldi 4.0 introduces translate feature and Mail, Calendar and Feed Reader functionality.

Great to see Vivaldi making big strides. No surprise here since its backed by ex-Opera dev.

I use it as a secondary browser on Windows, behind the new Micorosft Edge because of how well the latter works under the Windows ecosystem.

Vivaldi is my primary browser on Linux

Firefox Nightly & Via browser are my browsers on Android.

And... just like it is here, when you have a great supportive team such as with their own forum, everything just makes you appreciate it even more.

Just recently, was wanting to make Presearch default bookmarklet to search a specific site and for some reason, it wasn't working with Vivaldi. Here then is the modified JS solution a Vivaldi user posted:
javascript:q=window.getSelection().toString();if(! q)q=prompt("Search%20terms");if(q!=null)location=" https://engine.presearch.org/search?q="+q+"+site:"+location.hostname;

Have Vivaldi as default on Android with Firefox nightly. Odd enough, Firefox stable could not connect to the internet.

Vivaldi on Linux, Firefox as backup.

Last but not least...

Perhaps the greatest thing about Vivaldi, is that, M$ and G$ are nowhere near to what this ad hock crew has done over so few years, with so little budget!! Reminiscent of Firefox in its glory days.

Reminds me of the health care system webpage creation of a certain country that cost millions! A country that could have built thousands of webpages for the same price and so much better in performance had they hired private coders... oh oh!
