Vivaldi browser launches for Android

Vivaldi browser launches for Android

Speed Dials offer a quick way to get users to their favorite websites and to organize bookmarks easily, while the Bookmark Manager provides a way to add/edit descriptions and nicknames for websites.

Overall, Vivaldi on Android is a worthwhile contender. The design is similar to the desktop browser, with optional light and dark modes.

As a result, you can consider the mobile version of Vivaldi an extension to the original browser, and the parent company wanted this to be possible from the very first launch.

Vivaldi on Android also gives access to multiple tabs that you can reach by tapping the tab switcher from the bottom-right corner of the screen.

If you were tempted to use Vivaldi on PC, but were discouraged by the lack of synchronization between desktop and mobile, you may want to try out the new Vivaldi browser for Android, now available on the Google Play Store. There's a built-in notes tool too, for jotting down memos and lists without opening another app, plus the ability to take screenshots of entire webpages (not just what's now visible on the screen).

Another cool feature is the pre-installed search engines that can let you switch between search engines like Google, duckduckgo or bing in just one tap.

Something unique and a feature that no other browser have till date is the Notes feature that allows you to create and save notes within the browser. There's also a notes tool, which lets users write down ideas without having to move to a separate app; Capture, for taking screenshots of an entire web page or a section of it for saving and sharing; and tab switching, which lets users swipe between open tabs, private tabs, those recently closed, and any open on another device. There are things like Speed Dial, which is basically a set of shortcuts that the user has saved.

What should endear you to Vivaldi?

At the same time, Vivaldi doesn't overload the user with options and hides those behind its Panels UI convention.

You also get some more convenient features like built-in screenshot functionality along with full-length scrolling screenshots for webpages; Reader View for distraction-free reading. The company also claims that it encrypts the data on the device using a password and it doesn't use any third-party servers.

You can choose your default search engine in the Vivaldi Browser, as there are several popular options available.
