Vivaldi 4.1 Adds Accordion Tabs and Command Chains

Posted on July 28, 2021 by Paul Thurrott in Web browsers with 5 Comments

The new version of the Vivaldi web browser on desktop and mobile offers two new features, Accordion Tabs and Command Chains.

“We know we can always improve,” Vivaldi’s Jon von Tetzchner writes. “So we’ve just added even more flexibility with two brand-new features – Accordion Tabs and Command Chains – in our latest update Vivaldi 4.1.”

Accordion Tabs is a new grouping option for the Tab Stacks feature in Vivaldi, alongside Compact and Two-Level. With Accordion Tabs, tab groups can expand and minimize when active, allowing you to use many tabs without overcrowding the tab bar.

With Command Chains, you can chain together any of the over 200 commands that Vivaldi offers and execute them in a sequence using a single shortcut.

There are a few other minor functional changes in Vivaldi 4.1, too, including silent updating on Windows and a new Reader View.

You can download Vivaldi 4.1 from the Vivaldi website.

    Love seeing the Ecosia icon in the article image. I'm a fan of both Vivaldi and Ecosia.

    I thought I had finally found my ideal tab solution with Edge (vertical tabs), but this two-level horizontal tab thing from Vivaldi is better. I just set it up, and I gotta say I'm liking it. Hmmm

    My approach to the complexity issue regarding Vivaldi was to configure what I really wanted it to do first, and then use the browser for a period of time. When I encountered a circumstance where I thought, "Would it be nice if it could do this," I did a little research and implemented the respective feature. To sum up, configuring Vivaldi doesn't have to be performed all at once.

    Vivaldi it's awesome due to tan arrangement feature. I just right click a tab and select 'sort by hosts' and viola, tabs are arranged wonderfully and easy to navigate way. It's a productivity hack ?
