Vivaldi launches its first mobile web browser for Android

Vivaldi 2.7 on Android with dark theme

The Address bar and Vivaldi menu (via its icon) are at the top of the page, with the home page pointing to the familiar Speed Dial. Buttons at the bottom provide access to panels, history, search button and tab switcher. There's the nicknames feature which allows users to use shortcuts to access different search engines.

Vivaldi is bringing a couple of those to Android.

And of course, since it is 2019, Vivaldi also comes with a dark theme in addition to the light theme.

For the most part, I like to use the same browser on desktop and mobile, simply to keep my bookmarks in sync (and Vivaldi says it doesn't use Google's servers to sync, in case you're anxious about being tracked). The browser, though in beta, is already available for download and installation via the Google Play Store (see link below).

A continuation of the desktop browser, Vivaldi has announced the launch of the beta version of the browser for Android platform. "This beta is our way of saying "thanks" for your continued support and patience", said Vivaldi co-founder and CEO Jon von Tetzchner in a blog post.

The unique feature on Vivaldi is "notes" that no other browser offers. You can also select your preferred search engine by typing its nickname in the Address Bar.

"At Vivaldi, we've always believed that true innovation is only possible through an open, collaborative approach". There's also a notes tool, which lets users write down ideas without having to move to a separate app; Capture, for taking screenshots of an entire web page or a section of it for saving and sharing; and tab switching, which lets users swipe between open tabs, private tabs, those recently closed, and any open on another device.

Vivaldi for Android boasts sync support through Vivaldi accounts, and you can choose data like bookmarks and Speed Dials, passwords, autofill information, history, and Notes. It also has a focus on security and privacy, so the company doesn't collect excessive user data and uses end-to-end encryption for its sync function.

You also get some more convenient features like built-in screenshot functionality along with full-length scrolling screenshots for webpages; Reader View for distraction-free reading.

Vivaldi has released a new browser for Android, packed with features that it hopes will lure users away from Chrome.
