Some time ago I had a short conversation with a friend about browsers. I use Firefox, open source and very popular; he used the protagonist of this post, and the reason for people like him is simple: it offers many interesting functions for demanding users or "power users". For example, him native mail, news and calendar client or split screen, all in the same window. Today, the company launched Vivaldi 3.6, update that adds another interesting possibility.
Personally, I don't like having a lot of tabs open, but I know people who have literally dozens of them. From X amount, in other browsers the tabs begin to shrink. This is something that will be more difficult in Vivaldi 3.6, as it has added the ability to add a second row as we see in the header capture.

Vivaldi 3.6 It is now available from the developer page, which can be accessed from this link. Linux users whose distribution adds the repository after the first installation should already have the update available. In other systems, like the Manjaro that I use on one of my laptops and where it is in the official repositories, it will still take a few days to arrive.
