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.
