This browser belongs to your distro
Vivaldi is not like other browsers. It rejects Big Tech's one-size-fits-all approach to software, putting the user in control.
Everything in Vivaldi is customizable and built around respecting the user's right to privacy and security – just like in Linux.
Vivaldi browser is designed with Linux in mind, not as an afterthought. We've made it easy for you to use it with your favorite Linux distro, so you can enjoy all of the unique benefits and features in one convenient package.
Two ways to integrate Vivaldi
Vivaldi has two main ways to integrate into your distro, enabling ultra-customizable web browsing – by becoming a system-wide browser or by integrating into desktop environments.
Make Vivaldi a system-wide browser
With this option, you can make Vivaldi the system-wide web browser for all accounts. This will give new users of your distro a familiar experience, while integrating all the benefits of Vivaldi into your distro.
Integrate into the desktop environments
This option is ideal if you're managing a distro that uses multiple desktop environments. In this case, you can customize Vivaldi for integration in each DE, giving users maximum flexibility while maintaining uniformity across their experience on your distro.
Let’s customize Vivaldi for your distro
Whether you're a distro manager or a regular Linux user, Vivaldi has everything you need to customize the browser to your heart's content.
Start by customizing the default browser theme. This is a great way to make Vivaldi feel like it belongs on your Linux distro (which matches the style of your distro).
Whether you're looking for a way to bring your color palette into Vivaldi or add a splash of color that matches your existing branding, we've got you covered.
Custom search engines
Next, you can add custom search engines to Vivaldi and decide which one is default for your distro users.
For example, if you want to offer DuckDuckGo as a default search engine, this method will allow you to do that.
Finally, you can add custom Speed Dials or bookmarks so that users can easily access the websites that are important to your distro.
If bookmark collections were created specifically for your Linux distro, they would be available on Start Page and in any pre-existing bookmark folders.
Loved by everyone, from distro managers to regular Linux users
In our repos, Manjaro always provides the very latest version of Vivaldi, and thanks to direct developer contact we are now also able to include matching default themes for our editions.

Keep up the great work. As a Linux user in a Microsoft heavy technology company, I use Vivaldi a LOT for Teams, Outlook Email & Calendar, and it all just works so much better than it did in Firefox.
@vivaldibrowser I am surprised to find your in-browser email client so much better than the #Linux email clients I have tested so far, specially the conversation view 🙌 and the quick commands makes is such an ease! you guys nailed it!
Replying to @ManjaroLinux
For me @vivaldibrowser is my first stop whenever I install any distro (mostly Manjaro). It's private, has tons of customizations options, you can modify it as you feel, and looks beautiful in both Gnome & KDE.

Good achievement ! Someone on a known #Linux project said:
Best way to survive Firefox!
sudo eopkg install vivaldi-stable
sudo eopkg install vivaldi-snapshot
The team at @vivaldibrowser are always innovating and improving. If you haven't tried their browser yet, you are definitely missing out.

Why Vivaldi is perfect for Linux
Vivaldi is the browser that lets you create a workflow that's uniquely yours, with customizable shortcuts, gestures, and customizable menus. Adjust the position, size, and appearance of the browser's UI elements to make it work exactly how you want.
Linux users are a diverse bunch, but there's one thing we've always agreed on: out-of-the-box features matter. That's why we’ve loaded Vivaldi with features that appeal to Linux users and make it a great choice for anyone who wants granular control over their browsing experience.
Vivaldi treats all Linux users as first-class citizens and ensures that everyone can take advantage of the latest browser features and improvements. That's why we're proud to be one of the few Linux browsers that run on ARM processors. It's available in DEB or RPM packages, so you can install it on any Linux distribution you like.
Vivaldi is built with privacy and security as a priority. We believe unnecessary data collection is dangerous, so we do not track or profile you. Instead, we focus on building a browser that puts you in control!
From one-size-fits-all to deep customization
We believe deeply in freedom of choice, so we've created a Linux browser for all tastes—from those who want a more traditional browsing experience with a familiar look and feel to those who prefer something more experimental and unique.
Jon Stephenson von Tetzchner, Vivaldi CEO.
Our values in action
Staying connected with our community is essential to keeping the Vivaldi spirit alive. Not to mention building the best browser possible. We also use our platform to share positive trends or to speak out on harmful practices that could put you - and society as a whole - at risk.
Be part of a movement
Our members hang out, share ideas, troubleshoot, and help develop the browser by giving valuable feedback.
Where do we stand on cryptocurrency?
When you strip away the hype, virtual currencies have very real repercussions for people, society, and the environment.
Ever get the feeling you’re being watched?
It’s time to say no to profiling and surveillance-based ads.
Do I need to sign an agreement with Vivaldi to integrate it?
You do not need an agreement with Vivaldi to integrate the browser, Vivaldi is free software so as long as your integration is open and without legal limitations you do not need any form of agreement.
Are there any licensing costs involved?
Vivaldi is free software (though not licensed as "free and open source"). But as far as licensing, or other costs go there are none involved when you integrate Vivaldi.
Do I need to inform Vivaldi before I integrate the browser and do I need permission?
Yes, we would strongly recommend that you inform us if and when you integrate the browser in your distribution or on a Linux device. We can not enforce this, but we do prefer to be asked for permission before you take on such integration.
