Vivaldi Makes It Easier to Manage Many Tabs

Posted on January 29, 2021 by Paul Thurrott in Web browsers with 1 Comment

The Vivaldi web browser is taking a unique approach to management lots of tabs: It’s adding a second row of tabs called Two-Level Tab Stacks.

“Six years ago, in Vivaldi’s first public appearance on desktop and notebooks, we unveiled Tab Stacks,– the ability to group and manage tabs together,” Vivaldi co-founder and CEO Jon von Tetzchner writes. “Today, we introduce Two-Level Tab Stacks, a feature that takes our tab functionality to the next level, literally.”

In Vivaldi 3.6, stacked tabs are no displayed in a second tab bar below the normal tab bar. For those unfamiliar with Tab Stacks, you create one by dragging a tab onto another tab. In the past, those stacked tabs would stay next to the other tabs. But in the new Vivaldi, they are placed in a new row. To expand a stacked tab, you just click it. And Tab Stacks work similarly if the tabs are displayed vertically.

Two-Level Tab Stacks are now available in Vivaldi 3.6, which also features right-click menu configuration capabilities, Touch ID support on Mac, and many other improvements.

    For the past 6 months or so, Vivaldi is back to being my main browser on Windows 10 plus Android. I love its customization features and enjoy following the team's progress as a kind of hobby interest.
