Vivaldi is already known as one of the most customizable web browsers for power users, but the 1.10 update debuts today with an extra layer of options that let you make browsing more personal than ever before.
Jon von Tetzchner, CEO, Vivaldi said the company wanted to give their users a chance to make a real difference to the environment just by searching the web.
One way to take some of the tedium out of browsing might be to do something good for the planet along the way. To help you do that, the browser builder Vivaldi has teamed up with the search engine Ecosia to create a scheme that plants trees while you browse.
When web users use the Ecosia search engine on new browser Vivaldi, ad revenue that Ecosia generates from these searches is used to plant trees in areas such as the Brazilian Atlantic forest and Burkina Faso in Africa.
“By using Ecosia, you can turn your web searches into trees planted in the world’s most environmentally threatened areas.”
If you’ve ever wanted more control over your browser history, you now have it with Vivaldi.
The history feature now makes it easier for users to find sites they have previously visited, while also providing insight into browsing activity.
Vivaldi users had better get ready to be taught a ‘History’ lesson in the new version of the browser.
