Vivaldi 2.6 brings native content blocking, even more customization options
Earlier today, one of the world's most underrated web browsers — Vivaldi — has been updated, so its current version number is now 2.6 (or 2.6.1566.40, for those who are very serious with their numbers). Obviously, this new version also comes with a few noticeable changes and bug fixes — 56 bugs sent into oblivion and 11 new features, to be accurate.
The most important new feature is the integrated abusive ad-blocking, which comes enabled by default, but can be easily turned off — just go to Settings > Privacy to find the corresponding checkbox. Based on the users' feedback, the Vivaldi team made some improvements to the User Profiles section. These improvements include new avatar options, the ability to select an avatar and add/delete a profile in the pop-up menu.
In addition to the above, Vivaldi 2.6 also comes with the ability to filter saved passwords in Settings, an unread tab indicator in the Window Panel, headset support in the Razer Chroma integration section, multiple performance gains, and so on. The official changelog from 2.5 to 2.6 can be found right here.
Just as its predecessors, Vivaldi 2.6 is available for Windows 7/8/10, Mac OS X 10.10 and later, and multiple Linux distros (via both RPM and DEB packages).
