Vivaldi browser redefines History (feature) with the latest update

Vivaldi, the popular alternate browser for Windows, has introduced a new History feature in the latest update that lets users explore their browsing patterns, backed by statistics and visual clues.

With Vivaldi 1.8, the History feature gives users insights into their online behavior while letting them quickly scan through visited websites and get helpful hints for finding old URLs. Vivaldi’s Side Panel with fast access to bookmarks, downloads, notes, and websites of users’ choice now also includes History.

In addition to the list of URLs as is the case with most browsers, Vivaldi shows your browsing history in a calendar view with detailed statistics about previously visited sites. Graphs and a color-coded heat map overlay add another dimension, showing peaks of online activity and key browsing trends.

Vivaldi states that all this processed information is strictly private and local to a user’s computer, and the company doesn’t collect user’s history data.

The latest release also includes more options for taking notes in the browser, powerful sound control for tabs and other improvements. You can check out the official blog post for more details about all the enhancements in Vivaldi version 1.8.
