Vivaldi web browser 2.10 was released 2 days ago. Here’s what’s new and how to install it in Ubuntu.

The new release also features:

  • Match browser themes with operating system light/dark theme
  • Improvements to address bar layout.
  • Improvements in the toggle to show or hide hidden extensions.
  • Significant performance improvements to Quick Commands.
  • For the detailed changes, see the release note.
