Improvements in the Bookmark bar in Vivaldi Browser

Vivaldi has done some important feature additions along with improvements to the Bookmarks feature. As part of the new update, users can select multiple tabs at once and then bookmark them at once.

Once this is done, users can then access the tabs in a date stamped folders in the Bookmark manager. The company has also added the right-click context menu inside the Bookmark folders on Vivaldi for Windows and Linux.

The new update has finally added multiple user profiles in Vivaldi so that different users can use the browser at the same time so that they can keep their bookmarks, saved passwords, history, and extensions separate. Each user profile can have different themes and user interface with the help of newly introduced toolbar customization.

To make sure that switching between these profiles is easy, the browser will add the profile button in the address bar on the right of the search button. This button will allow users to switch between different profiles or even launch a profile manager that will let users manage their user profiles. Users can enable or disable the button from the Address Bar section in the Settings for the browser. In addition to this, all these profiles also come with support for Vivaldi sync.

The result will automatically be copied to the clipboard. Last but not least, Vivaldi 2.4 also comes with improved control on Tab Stacks along with the ability to rename any Tab Stack with the help of double click and more refined control on how a user can create a Tab Stack.
