On Android, move the Address Bar to the bottom for easier one-handed access.
With smart phones’ screens still increasing in size, reaching the top of the screen while simultaneously holding the phone with the same hand can get cumbersome. That’s why in Vivaldi you can move the Address and Tab Bars to the bottom of the screen for easier access.
To move the Address Bar (and Tab Bar) to the bottom of the screen on Android:
Enable “Show Selected Text Translate Button” to see translations in a pop up.
With Vivaldi Translate, you can translate full web pages and, in the Translate Panel, you can translate your own text or snippets copied from a web page. But you can also translate highlighted text with a click of a button and see the translation in a pop up.
Create a new event from highlighted text on a web page or in a Mail message.
One of the great things about the Calendar being integrated in the browser is that you can skip a bunch of steps when creating a new event. Say you’re browsing the web or reading your emails and want to create an event or a task from what you see. All you need to do is:
Highlight the text you want as the event title.
Right-click on the selected text to open the context menu.
Click on Add as Calendar Event.
Fill in the rest of the event’s information.
Click Add Event.
Now you have a new event in your calendar in no time and you can just carry on what you were doing.
Use the built-in alarm and timer to keep track of time.
Vivaldi’s Clock feature, in addition to showing you the current time, allows you to set alarms and do countdowns. For example, set an alarm for the next meeting or start the Pomodoro timer to focus on your tasks.
To set an alarm:
Click on the Clock on the Status Bar (or wherever you’ve moved it to).
Choose from preset alarms or create a new one by setting the time and giving it a name.
To set a timer:
Click on the Clock on the Status Bar.
Choose from preset timers or create a new one by setting the time and giving it a name.
Enable “Download Messages for Offline Viewing and Searching” to access your mail without internet connection.
When you open a message in Vivaldi Mail it’s downloaded and a file for the message is created in your browser’s profile. Then you can open the email whether you have an internet connection or not. In addition, when searching, the downloaded message’s body is included in the searched content, improving search results.
To be able to view messages offline and include all message content in search even before you’ve opened the email, you only need to tick one box in Mail Settings.
Quick Commands in Vivaldi is a powerful universal search, wrapped in a minimal, command line interface. From Quick Commands you can execute commands, search for open and recently closed tabs, open bookmarks and a lot more.
The fastest way to open Quick Commands is to use the Keyboard shortcut F2 / ⌘ E, but you can also open it from Vivaldi menu > Tools > Quick Commands or create a Mouse Gesture for the action.
Then just start typing what you’re looking for, select the correct item on the list and press Enter (or click on the item).
Install the Linux ARM version of Vivaldi on Raspberry Pi.
The selection of devices Vivaldi can be installed on keeps growing. Recently the Android version of Vivaldi became available in Polestar and Renault cars and it’s possible to use Vivaldi on Steam Deck. But we have been making builds for Linux based ARM devices, which includes the popular Raspberry Pi, for a few years now.
Hold down the right mouse button and scroll to cycle through tabs.
Ctrl/⌘ + Tab and Ctrl/⌘ + Shift + Tab are well-known Keyboard Shortcuts used for cycling through tabs, but in Vivaldi you can also cycle using just your mouse.
To do that, first check that Switch Tabs by Scrolling has been enabled in Settings > Tabs > Tab Features > Tab Cycling. Then you can hover the mouse cursor over the Tab Bar and scroll to switch tabs. Alternatively, regardless of where the mouse cursor is located in the Vivaldi window, you can hold down the right mouse button or ALT key and scroll to cycle through tabs.
To make cycling through tabs even better, enable Show Tab Cycler from Settings > Tabs > Tab Features > Tab Cycling. That way, instead of switching to the next tab immediately, you scroll through tab previews and switch only after you’ve selected a tab and release the right mouse button or ALT key.
