In a blog post, Vivaldi chief executive Jon von Tetzchner said the new version had a better tracker and ad blocker and also moved more functionality to the lower part of the user interface.
The new version, 3.2, allows users to enable and manage several blocking lists in the tracker and ad blocker. Or if they wished, they could add their own custom lists of websites that they wanted to block or unblock.
Tabs at the bottom of the UI allowed users to view and switch between normal, private and synced views, and also close tabs.

“Vivaldi is based on what our users like. It’s all about creating personal experiences while you browse with Vivaldi’s built-in features,” said von Tetzchner.
“With more functionality at the bottom and more granular control to protect your privacy, Vivaldi becomes even more powerful and easier to use on your Android device.”
The Vivaldi browser is also available for Windows, macOS and Linux desktop operating systems.
