Jon von Tetzchner talks to CNET

Did you catch Jon’s interview with Stephen Shankland from CNET? “We put the user at the center. A lot of people say something like that, but we actually do. We listen to the requirements of individuals. We built in the flexibility so everyone should be able to get the browser that they need and want. We’re also not engaging in data collection, because that wouldn’t fit with putting the user at the center.” Take a look at the interview for more thoughts on privacy as well as Vivaldi’s roadmap!

Vivaldi users plant 73,000 trees with Ecosia

On Earth Day, we announced that over the past 2 years, Vivaldi users have planted an astonishing 73,000 trees with Ecosia! What a spectacular achievement! 🌳🌳🌳 We’re thrilled that two years ago, we made the decision to team up with “the search engine that plants trees”. The tree count is rising each day. Way to go!

As always, a big thank you for helping us spread the word about Vivaldi! 😍
