Norway-based Vivaldi Technologies has released a new feature for its browser of the same name, with a Break Mode being offered to help users take a break from continuous work.

A statement from the company said Vivaldi 3.3 also had a new default them for using private windows, base domain highlighting, clickable parts of URLs in the address bar, and an improved tracker and ad blocker.

The Break Mode had been introduced to boost health and productivity and helping people to switch off.

“We want to give our users the tools they need to stay productive, but we also want to empower them to manage their time and balance all the things that are important to them”, Vivaldi chief executive Jon von Tetzchner said.

The Break Mode also pauses the Internet to the machine in question.

"Easily triggered with a pause button at the left corner of the Status Bar, Break Mode mutes and stops HTML5 audio and videos, hides all tabs, panels, and other content leaving the screen clean," the company said.

"Alternatively, Break Mode can be activated with Quick Commands or its shortcut Ctrl + “.”

"Once the browser is paused, users can interact with the physical world – communicate with their colleagues or loved ones, make a phone call, jot down those creative ideas on a piece of paper, exercise, take a power nap, or grab a cup of coffee in peace."

The base domain highlighting feature is meant to help users clearly see the URL of a Web page that is malicious.

Vivaldi Technologies is an employee-owned company that is headquartered in Oslo, with offices in Reykjavik, Boston and Palo Alto.

Now’s the Time for 400G Migration

The optical fibre community is anxiously awaiting the benefits that 400G capacity per wavelength will bring to existing and future fibre optic networks.

Nearly every business wants to leverage the latest in digital offerings to remain competitive in their respective markets and to provide support for fast and ever-increasing demands for data capacity. 400G is the answer.

Initial challenges are associated with supporting such project and upgrades to fulfil the promise of higher-capacity transport.

The foundation of optical networking infrastructure includes coherent optical transceivers and digital signal processing (DSP), mux/demux, ROADM, and optical amplifiers, all of which must be able to support 400G capacity.

With today’s proprietary power-hungry and high cost transceivers and DSP, how is migration to 400G networks going to be a viable option?

PacketLight's next-generation standardised solutions may be the answer. Click below to read the full article.
