To move the Tab Bar to the bottom of the screen together with the Address Bar:

  1. Go to Vivaldi menu button Vivaldi menu > Settings > Appearance;
  2. Toggle on/off Address Bar At Bottom.

Address Bar

User interface

Bottom toolbar

The icons on the bottom toolbar will change when you view the Panels or the Tab Switcher to give you additional options.

In case you’ve moved the Address Bar to the bottom of the screen, the bottom toolbar buttons will be merged with the Address Bar. Due to limited space, some of the buttons will be moved to the Vivaldi menu button Vivaldi menu.

In landscape mode and on larger screens, such as on tablets, all the icons from the bottom toolbar are moved to the top toolbar.

When you scroll down on a page the toolbars will be hidden automatically to free up screen real estate. When you scroll up, the toolbars will be displayed again.


Theme

With the latest Android versions you can pick between a light and dark theme or defer to your system default.

To change the theme, open the Vivaldi menu button Vivaldi menu > Settings > Appearance > Themes and make your selection.

If you also wish to view websites in dark mode enable Dark mode for Web Pages from Theme settings.
