You can cycle through open tabs with Keyboard ShortcutsCtrl/⌘ + Tab and Ctrl/⌘ + Shift + Tab or by scrolling with the mouse wheel while holding down the right mouse button (see how in Tip #53). By default, as soon as you use the shortcut it will switch to the next tab, but you can also get a preview with the Tab Cycler before making the switch.

Make it easier to see which Calendar events have additional information by enabling event property icons.

Secure your Vivaldi account by enabling Two-Factor Authentication.
Two locked doors make it harder to get in than one. Similarly, requiring two different verification methods during login make your account a lot more secure. First you verify yourself with your login password and then either with a code that a special app generates for you or with a physical security key.
In quick links at the top of the homepage near your profile image, click on Account.
On the account’s profile, click on Enable Two-Factor Authentication.
Enter your account’s login password to continue.
Select whether you want to set up Two-Factor Authentication with an authenticator app or security key and follow the instructions.
It’s strongly encouraged to set up at least two Two-Factor Authentication methods. That way, if you’re unable to use one verification method, you’ll still be able to access the account using a backup method.
QR codes can be found everywhere, both in the physical world and on the web. It’s common to launch the camera app to scan QR codes and then open the scanned link in a browser or app, but if you want to open the link in Vivaldi anyway, why not use the built-in QR code scanner.
To scan a QR code with Vivaldi on Android:
Open the QR code scanner in one of the following ways:
Tap on the Address Field to display the icon (see image below).
Tap on the QR code icon in the search widget on your home screen.
By long pressing on the app icon and selecting “Scan QR Code”.
Place the frame on the phone’s screen over the QR Code or barcode.
If the scanner detects a URL, it’ll automatically open the link in a new tab. In case it detects some other information, it offers to copy the information or to do a search with it.
Bonus tip! Use the QR code generator on desktop to quickly share and open links in Vivaldi on Android. See Tip #14 for instructions.

Switch Workspaces with one click with the aid of Command Chains, Toolbar Editor and Custom Icons.
There are some unique ways you can use different Vivaldi features together to make the browser behave the way you want it. For example, with the help of Command Chains, Toolbar Editor and Custom Icons you can take Workspaces to the next level. Here’s how:
Step 1 – Create Command Chains for switching Workspaces.
Replace the placeholder command with “Switch to Workspace #”. The number corresponds to the order in which you created your Workspaces.
Create a chain for every workspace. In each chain, you can also add other commands that will be executed at the same time. For example, add the command “Switch to theme” to make workspaces visually more different.
With endless emails flooding your mailbox, moving messages to dedicated folders, assigning flags and labels to them, and marking tackled messages as read helps to keep things neat and easy to find later.

To move a message, change its read state or assign a property to it:
Click and hold down the left mouse button on the message you want to move.
Drag the message to the desired view in the Mail Panel.
Release the left mouse button to finish the action.
