Vivaldi browser now for ARM-based Linux devices

December 05, 2017 // By Julien Happich
Originally launched in 2016, the flexible and customizable Vivaldi browser has now been released as an experimental build for Linux on ARM devices.

In addition to Windows, macOS and Linux (x86/x86_64), Vivaldi is now available for a range of ARM based Linux devices. This includes the Raspberry Pi Zero, Raspberry Pi 2 and Raspberry Pi 3 – single-board ARM based computers with over 14 million units sold worldwide – as well as CubieBoard, ASUS Tinker Board and others.

Vivaldi offers a range of features and customizations for users who like to optimize their web browsing for maximum productivity. This experimental build gives even more options for DIY fans using devices such as the Raspberry Pi.

“Vivaldi is a web surfer’s complete toolbox that you can personalize and make your own. We strive to add more flexibility for the thriving culture of computer hobbyists and hope that every owner of Raspberry Pi will have fun using Vivaldi,” says Jon von Tetzchner, CEO at Vivaldi Technologies.
To reduce resource usage, users can turn off animated GIFs or use the advanced Reader Mode for a clutter-free reading environment. Vivaldi also has built-in functionality such as tab grouping, screenshot capture, ability to take notes right in the browser and so on – in combination, resulting in a speedy browsing experience.
The Vivaldi web browser is available free of charge and can be downloaded  here. Installation on Raspbian is as simple as double-clicking on the downloaded installer.
