Vivaldi allows adding custom entries to its menus

Starting in Developer Snapshot 2059.2, which hosts changes that will eventually land in Vivaldi 3.4, the browser allows further tweaking its menus by adding custom items. You can make it open a location, a link, and execute many of its internal commands, e.g. to switch between panels, notes, or open a file.

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. There is also a mobile version of the browser, also powerful and feature rich.

These day, Vivaldi is the most feature rich, innovative web browser among Chromium-based projects.
