See Vivaldi in action

Wondering how Vivaldi is better than Google Chrome? Our vision is simple – you should be in control of how your browser looks, feels, and works.

Switching from Chrome to Vivaldi is quick, easy, and fun.

Browse on the go. Wherever you go

On phones, tablets, and computers, Vivaldi syncs all of your open tabs, so you can pick up where you left off on any device.

Adapts to you

Every setting is yours to tweak with custom themes and advanced setting options.

Speed, speed, speed!

We constantly update Vivaldi to maximize your browsing speed — even if you have hundreds of open tabs.

Real privacy

Vivaldi tracks none of your behavior. And we do our best to block others too.

Why Google Chrome users are making the switch to Vivaldi

Here are three more reasons from power users on why they’ve chosen Vivaldi as their primary web browser.

Frequently Asked Questions

You are using a browser right now to browse this page. It's the thing that helps you go to web pages, see videos and play online. Geddit?

Fair question, but consider this: Research shows that people who use alternative browsers perform better and are less likely to be absent from work.

True, Antonio Vivaldi was a composer. We're relatively confident that if he were alive today he would have used Vivaldi as his default browser on all his devices. Chances are, he would have been an EDM DJ, though (a very scary thought).

Well… maybe the exit button. We don't understand why anyone would ever exit Vivaldi.

Do you like being subconsciously manipulated into doing things you wouldn't have done otherwise? No, you say! That's what we thought and that's why we don't partake in such activities. Here's what we do instead.
