Vivaldi 2.3: Keep Last Selected Search Engine

Vivaldi Snapshot Icon Modern

The team behind the most innovative Vivaldi browser released a new snapshot of the upcoming version of the app. Vivaldi 2.3 comes with a new option to keep the last used search engine.

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.

Keep Last Selected Search Engine

Starting in build 2.3.1420.4, Vivaldi can remember the search engine you used last time. You can enable this feature by opening Settings > Search and turning on the option Keep Last Selected Search Engine.

You can get Vivaldi 2.3.1420.4 using the links below.
