Vivaldi Browser is a freeware advanced Chromium-based web browser developed by Vivaldi Technologies. It is a company founded by the former Opera Software co-founder and CEO Jon Stephenson von Tetzchner.
The browser is aimed at staunch technologists, heavy Internet users, and previous Opera web browser users disgruntled by Opera’s transition from the Presto layout engine to the Blink layout engine, which removed many popular features in the process.
Vivaldi’s aim is to revive the old, popular features of Opera 12 as well as introduce new and more innovative ones. It has a minimalistic user interface with basic icons and fonts.
Also, a color scheme that changes according to the background and design of the web page being visited.
Vivaldi browser also allows users to customize the appearance of UI elements such as background color, overall theme, address bar, and tab positioning, and start pages.
