Install Vivaldi 2.4 Web Browser on Ubuntu

Vivaldi Browser 2.4 released. Install Vivaldi Web Browser on Linux Ubuntu Systems. For Vivaldi Browser 2.4, Chromium has been upgraded to 73.0.3683.88.

Vivaldi Browser 2.4 brings a new level of customization – you can now build your own interface by moving or hiding buttons in the toolbars. In addition to hiding buttons, you can now drag them between the Navigation and Status toolbars – a functionality unique to Vivaldi. Want your Image Capture or Tab Tiling options next to your Back Button? Or to have a Reload button in the Status Bar? Now you can. Hold Shift while clicking a button to drag it to a new position, releasing the click to drop the button in place.

To reset the toolbars back to their default state, right-click and select “Reset Toolbar to Default”. Or you can head to Settings → Appearance → Window Appearance → Toolbar Customizations and click on “Reset Toolbar” for the one you wish to reset.

Now you can create multiple “users” without logging into a different operating system user account, or the need to maintain multiple standalone installations of Vivaldi. Each profile that you create will store a separate set of Bookmarks, Speed Dials, Extensions, cookies, browsing history, etc. Switching between profiles is as easy as clicking the Profiles button on the right of the Address Bar. By clicking on it, a list of all configured profiles can be accessed. You can also open the profile manager to set up new ones from this menu.

There’s another useful feature in this menu as well. Clicking Guest View will open a new window where searches, sites visited, cookies, and temporary files won’t be stored by Vivaldi. It uses Vivaldi’s default look and settings and the Guest won’t be able to change any of your browser settings or access your data while using the Guest Profile.
