The first Vivaldi release after the summer break, labeled 2.7.1628.30, comes with no less than 63 bug fixes and four new features. These new features include fast access to User Profiles, an option that allows stopping (in advance) audio from playing, the ability to enable/disable the Flash plugin, as well as an improved status bar.

One of the few web browsers that still need to reach their full potential, namely Vivaldi, is back with a new version. The first release after the summer break of the team behind it, Vivaldi 2.7.1628.30 comes as the direct successor of version 2.6.1566.49 and brings no less than 63 bug fixes and four new features to the table.

Sadly, the four new features are rather minor ones, although they promise to ease the life of most Vivaldi users. The tab menu has now an option suggestively called "Mute Tab" that allows to mute websites before any audio starts playing, Windows users can easily create desktop shortcuts to specific Vivaldi user profiles, the Flash player plugin can be easily enabled/disabled as needed, and the status bar displays useful status information — such as "Processing request" or "Establishing secure connection" — while waiting for pages to load.

The list of operating systems supported remains unchanged, so Vivaldi 2.7 can be downloaded for Windows 7/8/10, Mac OS X 10.10 and later, as well as Linux distros that can handle RPM or DEB packages — as long as it was not already installed and all it needs now is to be updated, of course.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
