Vivaldi Browser Now Features Improved Support For Large Screens, Mouse Gestures And More
Also new in this release is support for mouse gestures. These were long a feature of Opera and were one of the few advanced features that survived that browser’s move to WebKit in 2013. The Vivaldi team is clearly aiming its browser at former Opera users, so while many of us probably won’t use this feature (though it’s worth a try), many of Opera’s former users will be happy to see it in Vivaldi. Some of the supported gestures let you open new tabs and navigate your history, for example.
This week has been a bit emotional for some of us as we learned that the company many of us worked for before, Opera, dismantled its Oslo desktop team and fired some 70 employees around the world. As you can imagine, this is a major move for the company as this is where it all started, with the desktop browser in Oslo.
Many of our good friends around the globe lost their jobs. Our thoughts are with them all. Clearly this makes our task even more important and we will continue to work hard making the best browser available for you, our friends.
