New options – Vivaldi Android Browser snapshot 3390.4

This snapshot introduces settings for matching bookmark nicknames in address bar, custom start page, and adds support for Markdown in notes.

Here are some of the changes that have been made:

  • Bookmarks Nickname Matching in address bar setting (VAB-9353)
    We have added a new setting that allows you to enable bookmarks nickname matching directly in the address bar. With bookmarks nickname matching enabled, you can assign nicknames to your bookmarks. When you start typing these nicknames in the address bar, Vivaldi will recognize and suggest the corresponding bookmark.
    You can enable or disable the option in Settings, under Appearance.
  • Add support for markdown in Notes (VAB-158)
    We’re excited to introduce support for Markdown in the Notes editor. This new feature allows you to format your notes with ease, making it perfect for organizing your thoughts, writing detailed notes, and enhancing your productivity.
  • Customizable Start Page (VAB-8126)
    Your Start Page just got more personal! With the new customization options, you can tailor the Start Page to suit your preferences. Customize backgrounds, adjust layouts, and create a Start Page that truly reflects your style.

Download options

We are currently offering Snapshots from the Play Store.

Get it on Google Play

Sometimes there might be a delay after a snapshot blog post goes live, while updates are rolled out via the Play Store. If you don’t want to wait, or you do not use the Play Store on your device, we also offer .apk files for manual installation.

Alternative Downloads (3390.4)

Manually installed files can be updated from the Play Store at a later date, provided you installed the one that is most appropriate for your device. If you are not sure which one is right for you, simply install Droid Hardware Info [Alt], switch to the ‘System’ Tab and look at the ‘Instruction Sets’ line.

Differences to Final

The purpose of these snapshots is to allow our users a chance to preview upcoming changes, and to help us ensure the quality of our latest fixes and improvements, before we add them to Final. If you would prefer something that was already widely tested, stick with the main Vivaldi Android package.

When testing a Snapshot, it is a good idea to review the changelog (above). Try out the changes and let us know your thoughts in the comments section or directly in the Play Store. When commenting in the Play Store, remember that it is helpful to mention the version you were testing with.
