Vivaldi 3.6 Offers Tab Stacking Web Browser — and the World Will Never be the Same

If you’re sick of pouring through dozens of tiny scrunched tabs in Google Chrome, Vivaldi 3.6 has the answer.

The version of Vivaldi’s browser released this morning and could forever change the way we browse the internet. In a nutshell, Vivaldi took everything that should have been part of a browser for decades, and tossed it all into one update.

Its solution is so very simple, yet has eluded the greatest minds in software design since the beginning: tab stacks.

What this means

Tab stacking is the concept of allowing multiple rows of tabs on your screen. So, if you’re a tab monster (like me), this feature changes the game.

Instead of tab after tab, scrunched so small you can’t see a logo let alone a word, you get a full row of readable text. In addition to creating a more efficient browsing experience, it also means less time hunting through for the right tab.

Who knows how many years of our lives are gone forever as we search for the correct tab, over and over, day after day. But, Vivaldi 3.6 doesn’t stop there. Here’s a quick explanation of the feature:

Tab Positioning

Honestly, this next feature may be the biggest of them all. Vivaldi allows for repositioning of your tab bar.

Prefer your tabs lined up vertically on the left or right, or at the bottom of your screen? This browser has your back. The side view tabs are much easier to read and gives the ability to have so many more open at a time (I know, I know.)

The bars integrate well in any position, but the left seems the most natural to me.

Tab Tiling

Another useful feature now available is tab tiling.

This gives the user the ability to view multiple tabs at once — inside one screen. This is a feature that has been missing since tabs were introduced.

With Vivaldi 3.6, the need to have multiple windows open at a time is, well, a thing of the past. It’s now possible to watch your email while communicating on slack and monitoring CNN for breaking news.

Some Other New Vivaldi Features

An integrated notes panel is also now part of the browser. This is a powerful feature to have access to without needing to have a second program.

Notes lets you copy links, paste an image or even jot down some thoughts and keep them off to your side.

Vivaldi works with all Chrome extensions and even has a hidden game (Hint: type Vivaldi into the search bar.)

Overall, Vivaldi 3.6 is the first app to make me hit the default open in years. I think I can finally push Chrome to the side.
