Jon von Tetzchner, CEO of Vivaldi Technologies, has announced the release of a new version of his web browser. The list of changes is long, but the list of most outstanding news is not so long. Vivaldi 5.7 Above all, it introduces two noteworthy novelties, to which a third is added for users who prefer to use the keyboard as much as possible. And among the minor tweaks introduced, many have remained in the address bar.
The first novelty that stands out is that the windows panel has leveled up. Until now, what it showed us was a browser window, but now it will be possible to manage the tabs of all open windows. If we are working with several windows at the same time, the new version of the window panel in Vivaldi 5.7 allows you to move tabs from one window to another, even stacks of tabs. In addition, we can now restore closed windows in batches.
Vivaldi 5.7 now available
The second novelty that they have highlighted in Vivaldi 5.7 is something that I, as a browser user, did not understand that it was not available: that emails auto-mark as read. Vivaldi Mail separates emails by unseen, seen and read, but no matter how much time we spend with an open email, it will remain as unread until we mark it (the letter K on the keyboard works). This changes in Vivaldi 5.7, as a new option has been added to mark emails as read, but by default it will continue with the old behavior.
The third notable novelty is that it will be possible to assign a key combination to mark emails as spam or like not spam. The complete list of changes is in the release note, in the section that says “Vivaldi 5.6 to 5.7 changelog”.
Vivaldi 5.7, which succeeds 5.6, It is now available to download from your official website, in DEB and RPM packages for Linux users. For those who already have it installed and the repository is added to their distribution after the first installation, the new version should already be available as a new package.

Vivaldi has a great android version (with built-in translator, ad-blocker, and the rare ability to have bookmarks on your home page), but the PC version doesn't stand out at all
I use it as a secondary browser after firefox and it's great, I recommend it
