The Vivaldi web browser has a lot in common, lookswise, with the slightly blocky and drab utilitarian aesthetic of Opera, which makes sense because it was created by ex-Opera folk. But it would be a shame to judge this little-known browser by looks alone because it has some unique features that might convince power users of the web to switch over from Chrome or Firefox.

Vivaldi’s “stack” function allows you to drag and drop a tab on to one or more tabs, thus creating a stack that sits neatly folded up until you hover over, revealing a preview. Stacks can be named and saved if this is a group of websites you tend to visit regularly. This will keep you from tab overload but it has another cool trick: the “tile” option splits the stack into a multi-page view where webpages can be viewed side by side. The bigger your monitor, the more you’ll appreciate not needing to constantly switch between tabs.
