The Vivaldi browser has been updated to version 4.2.2392.3. This update for the Stable channel was released on August 19, 2021.

Version 4.2.2392.3 has many different features for Windows and Mac. You shouldn’t find your bookmarks being out of alphabetical order anymore. You should find notifications letting you know when the screen capture tool has copied a capture to the clipboard. The Chromium foundation that the browser runs on has been updated to its newest version, which means Vivaldi will also have its security updated at the same time. Those who were seeing the menu while in full-screen mode will no longer have that problem. And there is a slew of other changes as well, which you can check out in the full changelog below.
