After several weeks without news, Vivaldi has just released a new update of its browser. Once again, some of the most anticipated functions are falling behind, but Vivaldi 1.5 come with others that it puts up with functions with other browsers and manages to highlight details that others do not have.
For example, for the first time in a browser Vivaldi will synchronize with smart homes, specifically with its lighting system. It also puts you at the height of the rest by finally adding the possibility of moving tabs or groups of tabs between windows, a reading mode and automatic screenshots in the notes.
Vivaldi is in the habit of including with each update a unique function that makes it stand out, and this time has been made compatible with Philips Hue intelligent bulbs. In this way, once we have activated them in the configuration of the browser, Vivaldi will synchronize the color that they emit with the one of the page that you are visiting.
The new version of the browser has also included one of the features that were most missed in this browser. This is the ability to move the tabs from one window to another, so if you work with two open browsers you can swap individual tabs or several tabs at a time just by dragging them.
If you are going to read a considerably long text and want to do it without the hassles of any web, in this update Vivaldi has added a button to the right of the navigation bar to enter the reading mode. With it will improve the readability of a page leaving a plain text and eliminating any annoyance.
The notes mode that includes the browser has also been improved so that when adding a page is made an automatic screenshot of this, and in the version for Windows has been improved the update system to make it lighter and not of problems In teams with bad connections. In addition, bugs have also been fixed and overall performance improved.
And unfortunately this is it, and we still have to wait a few weeks to receive other functions that are falling into future versions, such as bookmark synchronization, history and password to be able to install it more easily on other computers or the reader of emails. For next year is also the expected version for Android, although this may take a little longer to arrive.
