Vivaldi’s new update takes its built-in, private Vivaldi Translate a notch up allowing you to select a text and translate it to a selection of languages.

It’s time to update your browser, with our new version on both desktop and Android. Vivaldi 4.2 is here.

The desktop version now allows you to translate any selected text on a web page with our built-in Vivaldi Translate tool, powered by Lingvanex and hosted on our own servers.

You can also access and share information quickly with our built-in QR Code generator through Quick Commands, Mouse Gestures, and Keyboard Shortcuts.

We’ve tweaked and tuned the browser overall, with improvements across the board including Web Panels. We’ve also added Neeva for our friends in the United States, a new privacy-friendly and ad-free search engine on both desktop and Android, giving you more options that do not track and collect data.

Vivaldi 4.2 is ready to be downloaded on Windows, macOS, Linux, and Android.
