Vivaldi 3.5 improves tabs, playback, adds QR code, but does not activate the new functions by default

QR code in Vivaldi 3.5

At the end of November, Jon von Tetzchner, CEO of Vivaldi Technologies, published an extensive note talking about some interesting news that would come along with Vivaldi 3.5. Specifically, we were told that the new version would arrive with email clients, calendar and feeds (news) integrated into the browser, but that version has already been released and, as in the beta (snapshot), they are not activated by default. To be honest, even with the version of Manjaro to update, I have not even been able to check if it can be activated, but most likely it is.

In fact, in the Vivaldi 3.5 release note they do not mention anything about these three clients, and if they do not mention anything they cannot explain that they are activated from vivaldi: // experiments. Yes they have explained the news that have come along with this updateThey have no other choice, and this time there are outstanding functions, but less than in other months and, of course, than those of the aforementioned clients.

    It happens to me with Vivaldi as with Edge, they are browsers that I like (in fact I use Edge in Windows 10), but I don't think about them in Linux or Android until, at least, they are 100% open source. Especially when I have other open source options that equal or exceed them.
