Vivaldi browser has many useful tab management features that make browsing productive.
Let’s take a look at them:
1. Periodic Reload:
You can set tabs to auto-reload after a time duration. To do this, right-click on the single tab (or hold Ctrl and choose multiple tabs and then right-click), then select Periodic Reload.
Choose the time for auto-reload. It ranges from 1 minute to 30 minutes.
Once it is enabled, there will be a countdown bar below the tab. Once it disappears, the tab will auto-reload.
To disable it, again right-click the specific tab or choose Ctrl and select multiple tabs. Then select Periodic Reload > Disable or Disable All.
2. Save tabs as a session:
To save a tab or a group of tabs as a session that can then be loaded later on, again right-click the single tab or press Ctrl and select multiple tabs before the right-click. Then choose Save Selected Tabs as Session.
Name the session and save it.
To resume, click on the Vivaldi menu and choose File > Open Saved Session.
The saved sessions will be listed along with the number of tabs in each of them.
By default, these sessions open in a new window but you can change them to open in the existing one.
3. Hibernate tabs:
Put background tabs to sleep using tab hibernation. Right-click on the tab that is to remain active and choose Hibernate Background Tabs.
