Vivaldi – Version 1.5 wurde veröffentlicht

Der Vivaldi Browser ist quasi wie der Edge ein Neueinsteiger im Browser-Markt, wobei dieser aber den Fokus auf Funktionsumfang und Anpassbarkeit legt. Der für alle entwickelte Browser mit Profi-Funktionen wird mit dem Update auf Version 1.5 um zahlreiche Komfortfunktionen ergänzt. Gleichzeitig werden natürlich auch zahlreiche Bugs behoben und die Performance verbessert.


Philips Hue und Chromecast Integration

Ich hätte nie im Leben daran gedacht, dass man die nachfolgende Funktion in einen Browser integrieren könnte, aber Vivaldi bringt als erster Entwickler eine Philips Hue-Integration nativ in seinen Browser, was irgendwie echt cool ist. (Voraussetzung ist natürlich das entsprechende Lampensystem.) Was macht das Ganze? Vivaldi lässt die Farben der Philips Hue-Lampen automatisch im Licht der Webseite erstrahlen. Es ist eine Spielerei, aber sicherlich sehr cool, vor allem auch bei Videos oder so.

Weiterhin bringt der Vivaldi nun auch eine native Chromecast Integration, was meines Erachtens nach noch nicht mal Googles Browser selbst hat.

Leseansicht und Delta-Updates unter Windows

Mit Version 1.5 bringt Vivaldi auch eine Leseansicht mit, die das Lesen von langen Texten auf Webseiten vereinfachen soll. Bekannt ist die Funktion unter anderem aus dem Edge oder auch aus Safari. Schlussendlich hat man dann neben der Leseansicht auch noch Delta-Updates eingeführt, was bedeutet, dass wenn ein neues Update für Vivaldi erscheint nicht alle Installationsdateien heruntergeladen werden müssen, sondern nur die Dateien ersetzt werden, welche auch verändert wurden. Dies sollte den Updatevorgang enorm beschleunigen.
