Vivaldi Mail 1.1 as product maintenance

Vivaldi Mail 1.1 does not introduce any really relevant new functions, instead the developers have done some fine-tuning. The same applies to the calendar and RSS reader integrated in Vivaldi Mail. The makers promise “noticeable differences” in terms of speed and performance. Working with a large number of user accounts at the same time is said to have been significantly accelerated.

How reveal the official release notes, optimizations and error corrections for the IMAP and POP3 accounts as well as the filter function and faster e-mail synchronization flow into the client.

Vivaldi 5.4 can make HTTPS mandatory

Vivaldi can now also make encrypted connections via the secure hypertext transfer protocol (HTTPS) mandatory via Settings → Address bar → Security functions. The browser now issues a warning if a website does not support it.

In addition, the so-called “web panels” with which favorite websites in the sidebar of the browser for faster access and organize, now also mute.

Customizable rocker gestures for the mouse

The so-called “rocker gestures” allow the Mouse buttons perform any action in Vivaldi. Previously, the actions performed were preconfigured with the “Forward and Backward” commands and can be fully customized by the user for the first time with Vivaldi 5.4.

As the official announcement by the Icelandic telecommunications researcher and Vivaldi Managing Director Jon Stephenson von Tetzchner and the official changelog, numerous obligatory error corrections and optimizations have once again been incorporated.

All innovations and bug fixes should also be incorporated promptly into the Vivaldi for Android Automotive OS, which celebrated its premiere in the infotainment system of the Swedish electric vehicle Polestar 2 (test).
