Vivaldi 2.2.1369.6: Address Bar Improvements

The team behind the most innovative Vivaldi browser released a new snapshot of the upcoming version of the app. Vivaldi 2.2.1369.6 makes the address bar customizable, features the ability to mute tab without switching to them.

Vivaldi was started with the promise of giving you a highly customizable, full-featured, innovative browser. It looks like its developers kept their promise - there is no other browser on the market which offers the same amount of options and features. While Vivaldi is built on Chrome's engine, power users are the target user base, like the classic Opera 12 browser. Vivaldi was created by former Opera co-founder and developed keeping in mind Opera's usability and power.

Today, Vivaldi got yet another feature which was available in the classic Opera: the ability to customize the toolbar.

Customize the toolbar

It is possible to remove any button using the right-click menu of a control. There is a new context menu item, Cuztomize, that includes the new Remove from toolbar command. Using it, you can make the toolbar show only the buttons you need.

Mute other tabs

As you may already know, Vivaldi has a keyboard shortcut and a quick command to mute other tabs available from the foreground tab. Now you can right click any background tab and mute all EXCEPT that tab.
