Vivaldi 3.3 now available with Break Mode, a new default theme for private windows, and more
Desktop users of Vivaldi finally get some interesting new features, although the move to version 3.3 is not a life-changing one. However, having a Break Mode feature in the browser can finally force some users to take a needed pause from time to time and focus on real-world problems like having a beer, taking the dog for a walk, or at least doing some pushups — and so on, after all any break away from the computer's display is good for one's health.
In addition to the aforementioned Break Mode, Vivaldi 3.3 comes with a new visual theme for private windows. Simply called "Private," this new theme uses a steady mix of blue and purple and allows the user to easily distinguish between regular and private windows. A new feature — apparently unique to Vivaldi — allows the user to crop and click highlighted parts of the URLs in the address bar. For example, the user can only select a part of a long URL such as domain.com/path_name_1/path_name_2/path_name_3/ to copy and paste by pressing and holding CTRL, hovering the mouse over the address bar, and click when happy with the link selected.
Overall, Vivaldi 3.3.2022.86 comes with 48 bug fixes and seven new features. In addition to all the above, this update also includes improvements to the integrated tracking and ad blocker, which has received "rules that allow you to browse even more safely" according to Vivaldi's co-founder and CEO Jon von Tetzchner. Vivaldi 3.3 is available for Windows (32-bit and 64-bit), macOS 10.10 and later (64-bit), and Linux (32-bit and 64-bit DEB and RPM packages, as well as 32-bit DEB for ARM processors).
