Vivaldi 5.7 improves window and email management

There is a new version of Vivaldi available, the first of the year to be exact and… unlike what is usual, it comes with just a couple of minor innovations. Something really unusual indeed, but as Jon von Tetzchner points out, “the most innovative features take a considerable amount of time to develop”, so we’ll leave it there.

Getting into the news of Vivaldi 5.7, the first of all is the update to the base that provides Chromium 110 with all the background changes that they entail, mainly corrections, optimizations and security patches. This version also brings a considerable number of corrections to Vivaldi’s own software for elements such as the address bar, the calendar or the email manager.

But if we talk about constant and resounding news, there are only two that make up the core of this launch. The first of them and the most prominent refers to the comprehensive management of windows on the panel. As you know, Vivaldi has a powerful side panel through which you can access bookmarks, history, downloads and much more, since in fact you can add web pages to use them in “mobile” mode.

Regarding the default options, however, one of the most interesting is being able to manage the windows from there, including a drop-down tree with all the recently opened and closed tabs. The only thing missing is display the content of all open windowsand not just the one that is active, and that is precisely what has been implemented in Vivaldi 5.7.

So now you know: if, in addition to many tabs, you are one of those who open many windows, this new option will come in handy so you don’t get lost in the crowd that you have created yourself.

The second novelty of Vivaldi 5.7 similarly revolves around management, in this case the integrated email client, which now allows mark messages as read automatically, so that they disappear from the “unread” filter, but remain in the received filter. It is a common option in other email managers that, if you are interested, you can activate in its corresponding section in the browser settings.

As a bonus, Vivaldi 5.7 has added a new keyboard shortcut to quickly mark and/or unmark messages as spam: “J” or “Shift+J”, respectively; although you can edit it if you prefer another combination.

And this is all that Vivaldi 5.7 brings with it, a browser that just three weeks ago celebrated its eighth anniversary since its launch.
