Vivaldi is a web browser designed for folks who want to be able to customize the heck out of the tools they use to surf the web. The first version of Vivaldi for desktop computers was released in 2015, but the first public beta of Vivaldi Mobile for Android was released just last year.

Now Vivaldi Mobile is leaving beta — the first stable version of the company’s Android browser is out today.

Meanwhile, Vivaldi 3.0 for Windows, Mac, and Linux computers is also available starting today.

Both the desktop and mobile versions of the browsers include built-in tracker and ad blockers. They’re disabled by default, but they’re easy to enable with a few taps in the Settings menu — I should also point out that you can manage your blocking preferences on a per-page basis if you want to whitelist specific sites to help support independent web publishers (hint hint).

The Android version of Vivalid supports browser tabs, a Speed Dial on the new tab page for easy access to shortcuts, optional support for synchronizing your data between desktop and mobile, support for private browsing, support for full-page screenshots, support for forcing all web pages to load in desktop view, and more.

Vivaldi’s new desktop release includes the same new tracker protection feature as Vivaldi Mobile, plus some other new features including navigation improvements and a new customizable clock in the navigation bar.

You can read more about new features in Vivaldi 3.0 for desktop and Vivaldi Mobile in the company’s official announcement.

  1. I just upgraded android vivaldi and am so happy with it. Immediate difference — so many mobile web sites are thick with ads.

    and regarding the hint, I chose the patreon over looking at ads. super worth it.

  2. “I should also point out that you can manage your blocking preferences on a per-page basis if you want to whitelist specific sites to help support independent web publishers (hint hint).”

    Don’t worry, we got you Brad. Your site is on my rather short list of whitelisted sites. Keep up the great work!

  3. Nice screenshots Brad, which phone are you using?
    Is it the ZTE Axon7 ??

      1. I was going to guess Pixel 2XL, but remembered that’s a 18:9 device. Totally forgot about the base Pixel 2.

        So my head was searching for any modern phones left that still use 16:9, and the only ones that came to mind is the Razer Phone 2 (bad battery life), Samsung S7+ (fragile build), or the ZTE. Swing and a miss.
