Vivaldi 1.16: Resizable Tab Tiling

Vivaldi Snapshot Icon Modern

The team behind the innovative Vivaldi browser released a new snapshot of the upcoming version 1.16. Vivaldi 1.16.1230.3 allows resizing the tiles you have open in the split view using your mouse or keyboard.

One of the unique features of Vivaldi is the ability to create split screen views with the click of a button. This useful feature must be familiar to the good old Opera 12 browser users. Browsing several sites at once can come in handy. For example, if you’re working on a blog post, it might be useful to have its preview version open in a separate tab to check out the layout as you go. Or, perhaps you need to keep your reference material for a research article close by, while you write.

The ability to resize the split view was one of the frequently requested features. Starting in build 1.16.1230.3, the tile separator can be moved according to your preferences. Another good things is that your adjusted layout will be saved between restarts. Also, you can use the following keyboard shortcuts:

“Ctrl+⇧ Shift+PgUp/PgDn” for Windows and Linux and “⌘+⇧ Shift+↑/↓” for macOS

It is possible to change them under “Tools → Settings → Keyboard”.

If you are new to Tab Tiling, it can be enabled by right-clicking a Tab Stack and then selecting “Tile Tab Stack” from the context menu. You can also use a tab selection to create a tiled view—hold down “Shift“ or “Ctrl/⌘” and click to select the tabs that you’d like to include in your selection. You can easily switch between common tile layouts via the Status Bar at the bottom right of the browser window.
