Vivaldi 6.4 adds volume control to Pop-Out as it celebrates cross-platform availability

Vivaldi 6.4 and the volume control in Pop-Out

El Vivaldi 6.4 which Has arrived today It is an update that, in the case of this browser, we could say is discreet or transitional. Its CEO, Jon von Tetzchner, has highlighted above all something that has nothing to do with this version: that it can now be used wherever we are. It doesn't matter if we are using a computer with Windows, macOS or Linux, if we are using a Raspberry Pi or a mobile device, even iOS/iPadOS, or a car. It's everywhere. The version for Apple devices has been to blame for the lack of v6.3: they made a mistake with the numbering and have gone up v6.2 this.

But as we just said, this is not new to Vivaldi 6.4. Continuing along the same lines, Jon insists saying that all data will be synchronized among all our devices, and it will do so safely. When we move on to the news section, very little stands out, starting with something that the community requested: Pop-Out now has a slider to control the volume, and in the video section I notice a couple of absences.

Vivaldi 6.4 now available

If from Chrome, Brave and other Chromium-based browsers we go, for example, to YouTube and right-click twice (the first brings up the service's native options), we will see an option that says "Copy frame." It may seem unimportant, but for someone like me who sometimes finds it useful to capture a video, it is comfortable and does not force me to juggle to get the right capture I need without having to leave the video controls.

On the other hand, and I continue speaking as a user, I like that Firefox's Picture-in-Picture allows you to put the video in full screen. To a proposal in this direction, a Vivaldi ambassador responded that he did not understand why, that the meaning of this type of floating videos is precisely this, that they float, but I have seen tutorials in Firefox on a large monitor and, once again, Picture-in-Picture allows me to control the action without being bothered by the control bar, which even when I pause, usually shows cards from other videos that cover what I want to see. That does not happen in the "alternative" Firefox player.

So, Jon, if you read me, these are just some ideas.

The other most notable new features that have arrived with Vivaldi 6.4 are in the calendar that will now have templates for repetitive events. We can create simpler or more complex windows depending on what we need, and it is something that is not a bad thing because the default one, at least for my general use, has too many options.

The Vivaldi team has taken advantage of the moment to upload the version of Chromium to version 118.0.5993.112. Vivaldi 6.4 is now available from your official website in DEB and RPM packages, and also for Windows and macOS.
