Vivaldi launches its first beta

We are very excited to announce that Vivaldi Beta is released for download today. With the first technical preview launch back in January of this year, we set out to develop a web browser that was fast, powerful and customizable, for power users around the world.

After 50 snapshots and 4 Technical previews, Vivaldi has now reached Beta.

We cannot thank you enough for all the support we have gotten from our community. We couldn’t have done it without you. Special thanks go out to the Sopranos (our volunteer test team) for always being willing to test our internal builds and give us valuable feedback.

Download Vivaldi Beta from here and spread the word for us. Share this with your friends and co-workers through Twitter and Facebook and get them as excited about this awesome browser as we are.

We will continue to work hard, so expect more features and bug fixes coming before the final release. As always, we love to hear from you. Post your feedback on our forums or below.

For those of you following our previous TPs, here is the feature history overview.
