The new version of the Vivaldi browser with customizable mouse gestures and new combinations of hot keys

The company Vivaldi Technologies has released an update of his Vivaldi browser for Mac, Windows and Linux. The app became available for new combinations of hot keys, improved tabs and extended setting options.

One of the innovations Vivaldi 1.2 is the support of mouse gestures. Now the user can create custom gestures with a manipulator to control the browser. It is necessary to set the trajectory of the mouse cursor, to be used as a gesture.

In addition, Vivaldi 1.2 optimized “Tab. New tincture allows you to designate any web page as the homepage when opening a new tab. You can also close multiple selected tabs at once using keyboard shortcuts. If you select multiple tabs, the contents of the context menu will change accordingly to provide the opportunity to work with selected groups of tabs, described in the company.

In addition, Vivaldi 1.2 added a number of new (customizable) keyboard shortcuts, including to the address bar. So, the combination Alt + Enter will open the edited url of the page in a new tab, and Alt+Shift+Enter will do the same in the background.
