A new stable version of the Vivaldi browser is out today. The team behind the browser releases Vivaldi 2.7. Let's see what has changed.
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.
These day, Vivaldi is the most feature rich, innovative web browser among Chromium-based projects.
Here are the key changes in Vivaldi 2.7.
Mute Any Tab, even in advance!
Vivaldi 2.7 features the ability to mute any web site, even if it doesn't play any sound! From now, you can prevent any web site from playing audio in advance. Just right-click on any tab and use the 'Mute tab' command which is always visible now.
