  • Opera 63 Web Browser Released with Improved Private Browsing Mode and Bookmarks

    Opera Software announced the release and immediate availability of the Opera 63 cross-platform, Chromium-based web browser for all supported platforms, including Linux, Mac, and Windows.
    Based on the open-source Chromium 76.0.3809.100 project, the Opera 63 web browser comes with a much-improved private browsing mode (a.k.a. Incognito mode) that's more user-friendly and privacy-aware, informing users about what data is removed or can be kept after exiting the private browsing mode.

    "We want to make sure you know what kind of data is cleared once you leave private mode. However, we would also like you to be aware that some data from private browsing (like new bookmarks you create) will still be visible in normal mode," explains Joanna Czajka in the release notes.

  • Vivaldi 2.7 Hopes to Boost Your Productivity, Improves Stability and Reliability

    Vivaldi Technologies released today Vivaldi 2.7, a new version of the cross-platform, Chromium-based web browser that brings more productivity to your day and stability improvements.
    Two months in the work, the Vivaldi 2.7 web browser is now available based on Chromium 76.0.3809.110 and packed with a bunch of enhancements that promise to boost your productivity. These include a new right-click tab context menu option that lets you mute a website to prevent it from playing audio.

    Vivaldi 2.7 also makes it possible to access your user profiles a lot faster by creating a desktop shortcut to a specific User Profile, which will ensure you're always in the right account. A new context menu item will be available for Windows users in the user profile menu under the "Add Person/Edit Person" button.

    "We want Vivaldi to be the perfect tool for you to control and enjoy the digital aspect of your lives," said Jon von Tetzchner, Vivaldi Technologies CEO. "And that’s why we are working on the things that count – the things that make you more productive and organised on the Web."
