A continuation of the desktop browser, Vivaldi has announced the launch of the beta version of the browser for Android platform.

"The browser you choose on your mobile device requires more and more agility to be effective in your day-to-day". One of these is the highly customizable Vivaldi, which has just released a new browser for Android.

Vivaldi allows switching between the search engines in the address bar using nicknames.

A popular browser created by a team of developers who were team members of Opera has finally made its way to Android in beta version.

At the same time, Vivaldi doesn't overload the user with options and hides those behind its Panels UI convention. At the bottom left corner of the browser, users have panels - a quick way to access useful tools such as bookmarks, history, notes, and downloads. Expect more features to migrate across from the desktop browser in the coming months - Vivaldi's task will be to integrate them without losing the fast, responsive and user-friendly feel of this first beta.

The unique feature on Vivaldi is "notes" that no other browser offers. Speed Dials offer a quick way to get users to their favorite websites and to organize bookmarks easily, while the Bookmark Manager provides a way to add/edit descriptions and nicknames for websites. You can also sync the notes across other devices.

And of course, since it is 2019, Vivaldi also comes with a dark theme in addition to the light theme. All you need to do is to use a so-called search engine nickname, which is actually a shortcut to conduct a search using a certain search engine.

Vivaldi for Android boasts sync support through Vivaldi accounts, and you can choose data like bookmarks and Speed Dials, passwords, autofill information, history, and Notes.

The capture feature allows you to capture a particular part of the screen or take a full-screenshot.

The reader view enabled from Settings under Accessibility option helps users read news and online articles on the phone without any distraction. The browser doesn't perform any kind of tracking and what's more, no profiles are built on your Android device.

For example, I'd want to be able to tweak the navigation bar at the bottom and add a share button, as sharing has become one of the things I do the most on my mobile device.
