Some time ago the team behind the innovative Vivaldi browser launched a counterpart project for Android. After a few months in beta, the stable version of the new fully-featured Vivaldi for Android is available on Android 5+.

The browser features the built-in tracker and ad blocker, a customizable speed dial, notes, the ability to capture screenshots, a usefuk tab switcher with a tab row, a powerful bookmark manager, and much more. It supports sync for passwords and other saved data, and has a huge number of other customization options.

Starting in Dev snapshot 1952.3, Vivaldi Android supports custom block lists. You will find the option under “Settings → Tracker and Ad Blocking → Sources”. Users can add (remove will come in a bit later) new sources and select from already provided lists for the tracker and ad blocker options.

You can download it from the Google Play store.
