Install Vivaldi 2.8 (Browser) on Ubuntu & Linux Mint system

Vivaldi is a feature-rich, next-generation web browser application based on the powerful and open source Chromium project, from which the popular Google Chrome web browser is derived. The application is freely distributed and cross-platform, created by the former CEO of Opera Software, built using modern Web technologies like React, JavaScript, Node.js, and Browserify.

A web browser designed for you

The main goal of the Vivaldi project is to make a highly flexible, low on resources and extremely fast web browser software that works across all mainstream computer operating systems, a web browser that is rich in functionality and designed for you, the user.

Vivaldi Technologies highlights synchronization improvements as the main new feature in Vivaldi 2.8.

With Vivaldi’s new version on desktop, users can expect improvements across the board while navigating on their devices. Users can now take Vivaldi – and their Bookmarks and Speed Dials, saved passwords and autofill information, History (with only typed URLs) and uniquely Notes – everywhere.

Users can sign-up for a free Vivaldi account to use the sync functionality. All it takes then is to sign-in under Vivaldi Menu > Settings > Sync to synchronize data between devices.
