How To Use Two-Level Tab Stacks In Vivaldi Browser


The Stacked Tabs feature in Vivaldi groups tabs into a single tab. This is Compact Stack Tabbing. The stacked primary tab can then be expanded to access the other tabs within. With version 3.6, Vivaldi now has a Two-Level Tab Stacks feature.

With this feature, even when the tabs are stacked, they will be available below the primary stacked tab as a second-level and be visible at all times.

Using Two-Level Tab Stacks:

To use Two-Level Tab Stacks, first, check if Vivaldi is updated to version 3.6 by typing in the address bar:

vivaldi://about

checking vivaldi browser version

Once updated to 3.6, select multiple tabs by holding the Ctrl key and left-clicking to choose them. A rectangular boundary will be visible over the selected tabs.

It is a useful feature to maximize display with many open tabs and for them to be visible. Add them in different stacks with the Two-Level Tab stacking, and they will appear in the row below the primary stacked tabs.

All done.
