He stepped down from that role in January, 2010. Vivaldi browser is available for Windows (Window 7 and greater), Mac (OS X 10.9 and greater), and Linux.

Vivaldi 1.0 was launched on April 6, 2016, more than a year after the public release of its first technical preview. Vivaldi, touted as a web browser intended for power users, differentiates itself from other browsers in a variety of ways. Features like Tab Stacks and Tab Stack Tiling help to reduce clutter and improve organization. Sessions allows users to save a set of favorite tabs for subsequent use. Notes allows users to store and remember quote snippets from visited web pages. Quick Commands, Speed Dial, Web Panels, mouse gestures and keyboard shortcuts combine to improve the speed at which users can operate the web browser.
