Unleashed for both desktop and mobile users, Vivaldi 3.7 comes with native support for Apple M1 processors and noticeable speed improvements (Windows/Linux/macOS), as well as easier bookmarking of websites and a friendly Welcome page alongside various other interface enhancements (Android).

At first sight, the latest update of the Vivaldi browser doesn't come with many noticeable changes. However, this is one of those few occasions when the desktop and Android versions get updated on the same day and the performance improvements involved can be easily noticed with the naked eye.

Although both versions got up to 3.7 today, the desktop one goes up to 3.7.2218.45 and its mobile sibling is now labeled 3.7.2221.27. Desktop users on macOS get native support for Apple M1-driven machines, while everyone (namely those on Windows, Linux, and macOS) gets twice as fast tabs and windows that open 26 percent faster than before. Popular features like Web Panels, Quick Commands, and the configurable Menus got a few tweaks and new options.

The mobile version of Vivaldi gets an improved Bookmark Manager and a friendly Welcome page for first-time users. As usual, multiple fixes and under-the-hood improvements are also in the cards, as well as some user interface tweaks.

Vivaldi 3.7 is now ready to download on Windows 10, Android 5.0 Lollipop or later, macOS 10.11 or later, as well as Linux (both DEB and RPM packages are available, including a DEB package for ARM).
