Configurable Context Menu: In this new version, a lot of work has been done on the Vivaldi Menu enhancing its structure even more. Adding more options and flexibility to it, users can customize menus according to their workflow. Configuring the context menu and adding custom links to the menu takes Vivaldi a notch higher, asserting its place as the most customizable browser in the market today.
Periodic Tab Reload: Vivaldi’s comprehensive tab handling gets another new feature that ensures users are on the latest version of the site when they switch to a tab. Easily enabled by right-clicking on a tab, and moving the mouse over the Periodic Reload menu entry, then selecting one of the available reload intervals.
The reload values for the tab can be set via a fixed list on the context menu of the tab or through quick commands to set an interval value (in seconds, with a minimum of 60).
