The most innovative of all modern browsers, Vivaldi, today reached another milestone in the stable branch. The team behind the browser today released Vivaldi 1.10. Let's see what has changed.

Toggle image visibility with menu and hotkey

Vivaldi 1.10 is getting more options to toggle image visibility. There is a special menu item and a hotkey which you can use to enable or disable images on web sites.

Desktop wallpaper as the Speed Dial background

In Windows 8 and above, it is possible now to select your desktop wallpaper as the background image for your Start Page in Vivaldi. A new option in Settings, when enabled, will make the browser apply your desktop background to the Speed Dial page.

Docked Developer Tools

Developers had a long standing request for the ability to dock Developer Tools. The  Vivaldi 1.10 browser finally features this ability. It is still possible to have them in a separate window if you prefer this mode.

Replace New Tab Page With Extensions

A new option will allow the user to control what happens on the new tab page with extensions. Using this new feature, you can add something useful instead of Speed Dial. For example, you can install a third party extension to show different time zones or motivational quotes. There are plenty of extensions to choose from.

You need to install an extension that provides an alternative speed dial/new tab page. For example, you can install the Incredible StartPage extension.

After that, go to Settings -> Tabs ->New Tab Page and enable the option Control by Extension. See the following screenshot.

Now you have a custom New Tab page provided by the installed extension.
