Team also has plans to improve the performance of the browser in the near future.

The home page of Vivaldi web browser states,

“What you get now is our first Technical Preview. It is a build intended to show the direction of our product. It is not perfect, far from it. Some of the key features we integrate are yet to be implemented, optimization needs to be done. But we hope that you get a glimpse of our product and what you can expect from us.”

Vivaldi, the web browser comes with a simple user interface and is built on modern web technologies like React, Node.js and a number of Node modules.
