A new version of the Vivaldi browser has been released this week in the form of 2.7 bringing with it smooth navigation, enhanced sound controls and the obligatory bugs fixes and tweaks. Highlights of Vivaldi 2.7 include quicker access to user profiles, support for older websites using the outdated Flash technology, informative status bar and improve stability for Apple macOS.
“In this upgrade, we’ve upped the ante to tackle the incredibly annoying auto-playing audio and video. We’ve added a new option that allows you to mute a website which is currently silent – one of the most requested features from our community. With this new option, you don’t have to worry that websites will interrupt your general browsing experience. Simply right click on a tab and select “Mute Tab” to prevent the website from playing the audio in advance.”
– “Mute Tab” is an addition to our already solid settings that control sound behaviour in Vivaldi. Find these under audio settings in Settings → Tabs → Tab Features → Tab Muting.
– The default option – “Play All Audio” – allows audio to play from all tabs at all times. Disable if you want to avoid unwanted noise.
– “Play Only In Active Tab” automatically mutes all background tabs.
– “Prioritize Active Tab” ensures that when your active tab has audio, background tabs with audio will stay muted.
