The latest update, labeled 2.9.1705.31, is now available with multiple enhancements to the Vivaldi Menu, the ability to set global default preferences for requests based on sound, geolocation, camera, microphone, motion sensors, Bluetooth devices, and pop-ups, as well as multiple tweaks and fixes.
Codrut Nistor,

Vivaldi 2.9 is here and — while it might not carry any groundbreaking new features — it refines the spiritual successor of Opera 12 even further. The desktop versions of the browser were all updated (Windows, Linux, macOS), but there's nothing new for Android users yet.

The Vivaldi Menu has been reworked to include custom Web Panels, but it also provides quick access to the Tab Bar. Bug reporting is now available in the Help menu, and the Bookmarks listed in the Vivaldi Menu now have a context menu that provides multiple options, including quick editing, creating new bookmarks and folders, and so on.

In the Settings > Web Pages > Default Permissions, Vivaldi now allows its users to set the global defaults for website permissions regarding sound, notifications, geolocation, camera, microphone, motion sensors, Bluetooth devices, popups, and MIDI devices. Obviously, these defaults can be also overridden by adjusting them on a per-site basis if/when needed.

In addition to the above, all Vivaldi users will benefit from multiple tweaks and fixes that lead to a smoother experience overall. For more details, feel free to check out the Vivaldi 2.9 release notes.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
