Mouse gestures

The first release of the upcoming Vivaldi 1.2 version finally brought the long awaited ability to customize mouse gestures. Now you can assign the desired gesture to a number of actions available in the browser.
The browser reads custom gestures very accurately and also displays the performed gesture in the status bar! This is really useful.


Another interesting option is the ability to set any URL or a local file as a new tab page. This is possible in Vivaldi out-of-the-box.

Vivaldi's developers have continued to improve tab management options. New options can control the tab selection feature:

Multiple selected tabs can now be closed by keyboard shortcuts all at once. Tab selection now intelligently modifies the context menu so you can apply any command to the whole group of tabs as easily as to a single tab.


The new version allows users to ask for confirmation before they open multiple bookmarks. It is possible to specify how many tabs can be opened without confirmation.
