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.

Frequently visited pages in the URL drop-down list of the address bar

There is a new option in Settings > Address bar. Under Address Field Drop-Down Menu, you can enable Including Frequently Visited Pages.

Custom screenshot file name

To set a custom screenshot file name template in Vivaldi 2.3, open its settings, and go to Webpages > Image Capture.

There, you'll find a new text field Capture File Name Template that you can use to set the desired template for your screenshot file name. In addition to letters and digits, you can use a number of variables, including Long Date, Year, Hour, Minute, Second, Unique ID, Host Name of the active tab, and more.
