Vivaldi Browser Gets Native Support for M1 Macs

The Vivaldi browser has been updated to version 3.7 with faster performance, native support for M1 Macs, and other improvements.

Work or play, most of us are living in a browser today. We rely on the browser to create connections and get our work done. But it can get frustrating if the browser, its tabs, or windows take a wee bit longer to open. The latest update of Vivaldi addresses this concern. It offers a faster version that will help you shave off seconds, even minutes of your day and potentially hours in a year. Now the browser tabs open twice as fast. Even a new window now opens 26% faster than before. Vivaldi 3.7 also includes native support for Apple computers using the new ARM-based M1 processors.
