Google's Chrome browser has become the rival to beat since its launch in 2008. Few dare to fight it, including Firefox on all types of computers, Safari on macOS and Edge on Windows, but most of them do that "if you can't beat your enemy, join him" and launch their proposals based on Chromium. So does Vivaldi Technologies, whose Vivaldi 2.7 has been released today
This version, which has been in development for the last two months, comes with many improvements that will make us more productive. On the other hand, they have not wanted to miss the occasion and Vivaldi 2.7 is now based on Chromium 76.0.3809.110, the most up-to-date version of the open source version of Chrome on which the 100% Google browser is also based.
What's new in Vivaldi 2.7
- New option accessible with the right click that allows us to silence a web page.
- Ability to access our user profiles faster by creating desktop shortcuts for a specific user profile (Windows).
- New option in the settings to enable or disable Flash Player more easily.
- The status bar now informs users about the current status of a web page at the bottom of the window.
- Improved stability to ensure there are no unexpected crashes in macOS.
Vivaldi 2.7 is here available for Windows, macOS and Linux from this link. For Linux it is available for Debian / Ubuntu and Fedora / Suse as a DEB and RPM package respectively. Once installed and as Chrome does, the Vivaldi repository is added, so updating it is as simple as opening the software updater of our distribution and applying the updates. Are you convinced by the new features of Vivaldi 2.7 together with the functions it already had or will you continue with Chrome, Firefox or your other favorite browser?
