First look: Vivaldi browser

Vivaldi, a Web browser now in tech preview, caters to power users who expect more from their browsers, letting them interact with content in new and exciting ways. Created by former Opera developers, Vivaldi is built on Chromium, the same platform used for Google Chrome, Comodo Dragon, and, of course, Opera.

On the surface, Vivaldi looks similar to other browsers, but a plethora of tools lie beneath that unassuming interface. Here are our six favorites.

Speed Dial

Customize your start page with Speed Dial, a popular feature started by Opera and the star attraction in Vivaldi. This iteration is incorporated into your bookmarks, where you manage it the same way you would sort Favorites. Speed Dial links are fully customizable and can be sorted into folders, allowing you to create separate workspaces for any occasion.

Tab stacks

Do you regularly have 20-plus browser tabs open? Vivaldi lets you stack tabs to organize your workspace — just drag one tab on top of another. For example, you might want to stack similar pages to make them easier to locate. Hover your cursor over this stack, and you’ll get a preview of each tab in that group.
