Opera Rolls Out v. 27, Former Opera CEO Presents New Vivaldi Web Browser

Norwegian developer Opera Software recently updated its web browser to version 27. Opera 27 comes with a redesigned navigation bar and brings back the tab preview function.

Opera co-founder and former Opera CEO, John von Tetzchner, presented a new browser called Vivaldi.


Opera 27 – The First Stable Release of the Year

Opera version 27 is the first stable release of the year. It is a relatively minor release that comes with two main changes. The first one is a tweaked navigation bar.

“Since the very moment we introduced visual bookmarks, we wanted to improve the navigation between Speed Dial, bookmarks and the Discover feature,” explained Opera Software. “We have played with many concepts, and today’s released navigation bar is the best option. You always know where you are, it gives you more space at the top of the window, and you can use the background of your choice without the previous fade-out effect.”

The second change Opera 27 has to offer is the reintroduction of tab previews. Click the button from the top right hand corner and you will see a list of all open tabs. Place the mouse cursor on an item from the list and a preview will be displayed.

Opera 27 for Windows is available for download right here on FindMySoft.

Vivaldi – A New Browser from Opera’s Former CEO

John von Tetzchner is no longer Opera Software’s CEO, but that doesn’t mean he is out of the browser game. Unhappy that Opera “changed its direction” and “it is no longer serving its community of users and contributors who helped build the browser in the first place,” John von Tetzchner created something new – the Vivaldi browser.

Currently available as a tech preview, Vivaldi promises to be fast, promises to offer rich functionality, promises to be highly flexible, and promises to put the user first.
