If you have ever looked for alternatives to Chrome, or Safari, or whatever web-browser you’ve been using for ages, chances are high that you came across Vivaldi. Made by a group of developers who formerly worked on Opera, Vivaldi is one of the best web browsers for Windows. it is filled with customization options and features that boost productivity multiple folds.
Vivaldi is bringing this power-user spirit to Android today. The Android version, which is currently in Beta, offers a number of powerful and convenient features available to current Vivaldi desktop users as well. If at all, the current Android build lack some features that are available on the desktop version, but we can expect them to arrive on Android soon.
For starters, Vivaldi offers speed-dials, which contain saved sites and folders, ‘nickname’ shortcuts for search engines, and the handy notes feature in-app. Another prominent feature is Vivaldi’s encrypted sync feature, which means the browser doesn’t rely on Google for syncing of bookmarks, passwords, and autofill info among other stuff across your desktop and mobile sessions. The sync feature works with a Vivaldi account, which also gets you a Vivaldi mail ID. Oh, and yes, the browser does have a dark mode!
Among the features that the current beta version on Android misses on is the feature to stack multiple tabs into one tab. Nonetheless, if you’ve been waiting for the Vivaldi experience for your Android (like us), the wait was well worth it. Go check it out!
