DUBLIN, April 6, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --

Vivaldi 1.0, the new free web browser from industry veteran Jon von Tetzchner, launched today with the promise of greater personalization and faster performance than what's offered by Chrome and Firefox. While both Google and Mozilla are focused on offering a stripped down browser experience with minimal features, Vivaldi is equipped with a wide variety of customizable functions designed to improve the user experience for people who spend a lot of time online. The global web real-time communication market is projected to grow from USD 569.2 million in 2015 to USD 4.45 billion by 2020, according to a report available from Research and Markets, offering Vivaldi a serious opportunity for expansion.

The browser features a range of functions including numerous hot keys and shortcuts, plus a new approach to tab display. Tabs can be stacked in organizable groups, or tiled together to show multiple web locations at once. In addition, tabs can be displayed on the top, bottom left or right side of the browser. There are also special gestures for mouses, which increase the number of controllable actions the device can complete, and the option to navigate the browser through key combinations. Vivaldi's profit will be made through search and advertising partnerships.

The global digital content market will be worth more than USD 500 billion by 2019, as forecast in an industry report. The large market value could result in unprecedented digital partnerships between Vivaldi and content creators and new innovative methods for delivering content to web users.

The global content delivery network market itself is expected to grow at a CAGR of 25.45% by 2019, as forecast in a market report, providing Vivaldi with a robust market to expand into should its web browser prove beneficial to users.
