Ready to make your own mouse gestures? Now you can with Vivaldi 1.2

Mouse gestures have been one of our most popular features since we launched the very first technical preview of the Vivaldi browser last year. So how can we make them even better? By letting you make your own.

Mouse Gestures in Vivaldi

Today we launched Vivaldi 1.2, with custom mouse gestures. Mouse gesture commands allow you to execute a command within Vivaldi with a simply movement of your mouse. Simply head to your settings and draw the shape, add some other touches, and – presto! – you have your very own mouse gesture. Check it out below.

But we didn’t stop there.

Zoom is also one of our most popular features, particularly for accessibility. Now you can set the zoom level for each tab, and we expanded the zoom range. It now runs from 20% to 500%. Happy browsing.

We also added a new Tabs Page setting, which lets users select any web page at the starting point of a new tab. And, new shortcuts also let users close multiple tabs at once, or apply any command to a selected group of tabs.

Catalan is our new language for this update, so Vivaldi now speaks 52 languages total.
