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.

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.
