Decrease Accent Color Saturation in Theme settings for a more pastel look on the browser interface.
Vivaldi Theme settings allow you to display your chosen color or a color of the active page on the Tab Bar or Navigation Bar (depends on your Color Overrides settings). While your chosen color is most likely perfect, colors from active pages can sometimes be too bright. If the vivid colors become too distracting, you can fix that in Theme settings.
Press N, R and F on your keyboard to start composing email messages in Vivaldi Mail.
Shortcuts help to speed up your workflow considerably. By using single key shortcuts in Vivaldi Mail, you can work with your emails with efficiency that will make others go green with envy. Move between emails, mark them read, send messages and more. In this tip, we’ll introduce you to three shortcuts that help you start composing messages.
N – Start composing a new message
R – Start composing a reply to the selected message (Shift + R to reply to all)
F – Start composing a message to forward the selected email
If you’d prefer to use different shortcuts, go to Settings > Keyboard > Keyboard Shortcuts > Mail and assign new shortcuts for the commands.
Share posts from Vivaldi.com and Vivaldi.net easily on Mastodon.
Vivaldi Social and other Mastodon instances are all about sharing your ideas and cool things you’d like others to know about. Vivaldi’s Team Blog as well as Blogs and Themes by our amazing Community members are definitely worth sharing.
To share content from vivaldi.com and vivaldi.net:
Make sure you’re logged in to your account on Vivaldi Social or another Mastodon instance where you have an account.
Open the blog post or theme you want to share.
Below the blog post/theme click on Mastodon among the Share options.
In the dialog that opens, enter the link of your Mastodon instance.
Review and, if you wish, add something to the post.
Save web pages for later by adding them to the Reading List.
Vivaldi’s Reading List feature lets you save web pages with, for example, interesting articles in a list you can access from your browser on desktop and Android. Using the Reading List prevents endless tabs from accumulating on your Tab Bar and Bookmarks from being filled with entries you only need once.
Add custom blocker sources to Vivaldi’s Tracker and Ad Blocker.
The Tracker and Ad Blocker comes with a large selection of sources that can be enabled to block unwanted content on web pages. You can enable them in the browser’s Privacy and Security settings. In addition to the default sources, you can add your own custom source lists. To do that:
Add web calendars to Vivaldi Calendar to view publicly shared events and schedules.
Web calendars, for example local public holidays or your favorite sports team’s match calendar, are a good way to follow events that you don’t want to add manually yourself, but would still like to know about. Web calendar events are read-only, meaning you can view them, but only the calendar owner can edit the events.
To subscribe to a web calendar from a website:
Look for a Subscribe or similarly named button or link and click on it. Vivaldi Calendar will detect the action and offer to import the events.
Select the calendar you want to import the calendar events to or create a new one.
Declutter a crowded Tab Bar by stacking all tabs by hosts.
While actively browsing, it’s easy to accumulate a large number of tabs. To keep things in order and tabs easy to find, it’s good to group them together. In Vivaldi you can group all tabs from the same domain (e.g. vivaldi.com) with just two clicks.
Vivaldi Community on Vivaldi Social is an international group of people, who post in many different languages. This means that the public timelines (e.g. Local and Federated) can include posts that you don’t understand. You could use Vivaldi Translate to select and translate the texts, but you can also filter them out altogether.
In the Filter languages section, check the boxes for all languages you want to see posts in.
Scroll either to the top or bottom of the page and click Save changes.
Then, as long as the post author has set a correct language for their post, the public timelines will only include posts in the languages you’ve chosen. So, when you yourself post on Vivaldi Social, make sure you also select the correct language for your posts. The default post language can be changed in Preferences > Other > Posting Defaults > Posting Language.
Set your favorite web page as the homepage for Vivaldi on desktop.
By default, when you click on the Go to homepage button on the Address Bar, you’ll be taken to the browser’s Start Page. If there’s a web page that you visit all the time, you could set that as the homepage instead. To do that:
Switch between the different views (List, Day, Week and Month) from the top right corner to see not just the pages you’ve visited but also statistics, which show you your browsing activity, when you were most active, what kind of websites you visited and how you ended up there.
Share your custom browser theme with the community on themes.vivaldi.net.
Creativity has no limits and with the Themes editor in Vivaldi, you can let it run wild. Change the colors, add a custom background, tweak the settings and you have yourself a custom theme. Would be a shame to keep it to yourself. Themes.vivaldi.net is the place where Vivaldi users can share their creations with the community and already over 3000 themes have been published on the website.
Here’s how you can share your theme:
Go to Settings > Themes > Library and select the theme you want to share.
