Vivaldi 3.4 now available with Chromium 86, the Vivaldia game, and more
Vivaldi is finally pushing forward on all fronts by releasing the update labeled 3.4 for both desktop and mobile users (only available on Android, unfortunately). The update comes with Chromium 86 under the hood, and a game that is available for all Vivaldi users by going to vivaldi://game/ and might hit a bit at Cyberpunk 2077, although it has a visual style and gameplay that reminds us of the games popular in the 1980s: Vivaldia.
The official story goes like this: "Vivaldia wakes up to discover that her peaceful city has been taken over by the big evil machines who want to steal everyone’s identity and turn people into numbers. If the humans don’t fight back, their future looks bleak." The hero rides a one-wheeler called — how else? — the CyclePunk to outrun and outsmart multiple enemies. Not a bad time killer and something that can run like a charm on any computer or Android device that can handle Vivaldi.
In addition to the updated rendering engine and Vivaldia, Vivaldi 3.4 also features a useful periodic reload feature, configurable context menus (with the ability to add custom links included), as well as no less than 33 bug fixes. As usual, the browser is available for Windows, macOS, Linux, and Android users.
While its number of global desktop users remains negligible and places Vivaldi in the "others" category, the Android version of the browser is now in the 500,000-1,000,000 downloads area and has been reviewed by over 12,000 users so far. Its current rating is a decent 4.1 out of 5 and the future seems to look pretty good.
