Vivaldi browser has recently announced that it will be using DuckDuckGo as default search engine in private window tabs. And now Vivaldi launches the updated version 1.15 of its web browser. The updated version now enables its users to have even more control over the appearance and functionality of the browser.

Vivaldi now allows users to customise their browser with extensive theming support. They can choose, edit and schedule Themes according to their preferred time and mood. The new browser extends its customisation by allowing users to select an image and setting it up as their window background. Vivaldi claims that the Window Background Image reiterates Vivaldi’s DIY (Do It Yourself) approach to fit in as the basic design criterion to provide different ways of doing things.

Users can get started with a repeating pattern that is available as the pre-set. They can also experiment with the default pattern with various themes to browse easily. Users need to go to Settings > Appearance, where they can find this new feature below the Window Appearance section.

Bookmarking:

Baked in the browser itself, Vivaldi’s new bookmark functionality claims to push boundaries of using bookmarks differently and lets users rely less on extensions. It packs in numerous ways to access bookmarks. Earlier they could already be accessed from the Bookmark Panel, Bookmark manager, Bookmark Bar and Speed Dial. With Version 1.15, the added flexibility is that users can access their favourite sites from the main Menu, giving them a convenient option.

Additional features of this new browser include Capture Page, Full-screen mode – for users who prefer more screen real estate, can now access the various elements of the User Interface (UI) such as the Address Bar and Panels while in the full-screen mode. The appearance of the hidden UI can be toggled on and off through Keyboard Shortcuts. The browser also made some improvements and fixes to HTML5 Audio issues, where sound would not play or played at the wrong speed.

Vivaldi users can update the browser to v1.15 either through company's website or can check in the update section within the browser.
