Vivaldi has added ‘Controlled by Extension’ option New Tab Page settings. Vivaldi by default, sets New Tab Page to Start Page, so whenever you open a new tab, you’ll see same old speed dials. Like Google Chrome, if you want to customize or change Vivaldi new tab page with extensions available in the Web store, it’s now very much possible in latest Vivaldi 1.10 snapshot.

“We have now added the option that lets you control what happens on these new tab pages with extensions. With this feature, you can put that new tab real estate to use in any way you like.” Vivaldi’s QA Engineer, Maria Popova said in a blog post.
