Accustomed to writing about new features that stand out for their originality, the launch of Vivaldi 3.7 It seems a bit bland. In other versions we have talked to you, for example, about the browser's native mail client or a second row of tabs, but this installment does not mention any of that. In any case, the absence of really striking news does not mean that there are no improvements, and it is that this version of the browser has received a different kind of love.
And this is not new. That is, there are many developers who add, add, add and, when the time comes, they focus on making everything work better. And that's what they have done in Vivaldi 3.7, improve performance and speed. New windows open 26% faster, and tabs will open twice as fast. This, which can be seconds when we do it once, can translate into minutes at the end of the day.
