Reading List

This post is also available in: 日本語 Русский Français Español Nederlands Српски Dansk Português

Reading List allows you to add web pages to a list to keep for later. It prevents endless tabs from accumulating on your Tab Bar and Bookmarks being filled with entries you only need once.

Though, there are similar services out there, Vivaldi’s Reading List doesn’t require an Extension nor do you need to sign up for an account.

Enable Reading List

To enable the feature and add a button to the Address Bar:

  1. Go to Settings > Address Bar > Reading List.
  2. Enable Show Reading List Button.

Reading List’s button will appear on the right side of the Address Bar, between the Search field and User Profile button.

Saved pages in your Reading List can be synced with Vivaldi on your other devices. (Currently available only on desktop.)

To sync your reading list:

  3. Sync either all data or make sure Reading List is enabled, when syncing only selected data.

Lists from different devices will be merged when synced.


Reading List Panel

In addition to the Reading List button on the Address Bar, you can use the feature in a Panel. Find out more about it on the Help page about the Reading List Panel.
