Vivaldi Technologies has released Technical Preview 4 for the Vivaldi browser and is available to download with more customizable options, mouse gestures, keyboard shortcuts cheat sheet, Experimental Chrome Extension support and is ready for Windows 10. Vivaldi confirms this as the last Tech Preview before beta.
Don’t get confused with experimental Chrome Extension support, you can still install and use Chrome extensions from the Web Store like you did before in the Vivaldi TP4 also. But Vivaldi’s work on extensions hasn’t been completed yet.
