This challenger browser is aiming to help restore order to your inbox

If you're looking for a different email option to the usual Gmail and Microsoft Outlook offerings, a new service is here from Vivaldi.

The browser maker has announced the launch of Vivaldi Mail 1.0, which much like its more illustrious rivals, is an email client built directly into your browser.

However, the company has looked to help its new release stand out from the crowd with a number of features that it hopes will attract consumer and enterprise customers alike.

Vivaldi Mail 1.0

"Vivaldi Mail is an ode to the original, simple, and reliable form of communication. And we hope you will enjoy using it as much as we have enjoyed building it for you,” said Vivaldi CEO, Jon von Tetzchner.

“Email can at times be chaotic and messy, but Vivaldi Mail is the partner you need to get the job done – keeping your mail organized and easy to navigate.”

The company says it designed Vivaldi Mail, available now on Windows, Mac and Linux computers, around "speed, elegance, and...customization", looking to provide users with the chance to make the service their own.

This includes Vivaldi Calendar and Vivaldi Feed Reader, giving you a one-stop portal for your schedules, to-do lists, news feeds and more along with your emails.

Users can combine all their email accounts - including Gmail, Outlook and Yahoo Mail - and manage them from within Vivaldi Mail, where they can then be classified and searched through to help locate messages quickly. Emails are also indexed, meaning users can search through them when offline, with prefetched mails indexed before they are opened.

Vivaldi looks to offer a range of customization options when it comes to folders and views, with the option to automatically place mails into different views, meaning it can appear across different folders if desired.

Different views can be toggled on or off via buttons and a search bar at the top, with seven central options available - Show Read, Show Custom Folders, Show Mailing lists, Show Feeds, Show Junk, Show Archive, and Show Trash. Although all active by default, users can turn specific selections on or off, meaning they shouldn't ever miss an important email.

There's also sixteen configurable shortcuts for activities such as composing new emails, replying to emails, and more, and the option to change between several different layouts depending on your preference.

New users can access the service by downloading the Vivaldi browser now, with existing users able to activate the new addition by clicking on Settings > General > Productivity features > Enable Mail, Calendar and Feeds.

FCC approves broadband 'nutrition labels' to help you shop for internet

The FCC is pushing nutrition labels for internet providers. What you need to know The FCC has voted to move forward with new rules for ISPs to display nutrition labels. The proposed rulemaking would mandate ISPs to display relevant speed and pricing information to consumers. This should make it easier for consumers to make an informed decision on their broadband. The FCC voted unanimously on a plan that would allow consumers to make better decisions about their broadband internet. The proposal will require internet service providers (ISPs) - including many of the best wireless carriers in the U.S. — to display "nutrition labels" that display relevant service information for consumers at point-of-sale. This includes internet speeds, allowances, and clear information on rates. "If you walk into any grocery store and pull boxes of cereal from the shelves, you can easily compare calories and carbohydrates," FCC Chair Jessica Rosenworcel said in a statemen

Follow these steps to connect a Pro Controller to your Android phone

Fortunately, it's possible to sync up a traditional controller. That's where it's nice to connect your Nintendo Switch Pro Controller and get playing on the best gaming phones .

Duke Nukem is getting a movie from some guys who could actually pull it off

The one true Duke. I wouldn’t be surprised if you have no idea who Duke Nukem even is — that’s how hard the classic video game franchise cratered a decade ago. Today, the character is mostly known as a punchline for video game vaporware jokes, about how Duke Nukem Forever spent 14 years in development hell only to become a huge flop. And yet for years now, Duke’s corporate owners have been whispering that a movie is coming, culminating in The Hollywood Reporter ’s story today : Legendary Entertainment has tapped Cobra Kai creators Josh Heald, Jon Hurwitz and Hayden Schlossberg to actually produce a feature film. I don’t quite know how to react! As a gamer who actually quite liked Duke Nukem , Duke Nukem II and Duke Nukem 3D, I absolutely agree that this movie should never be made because Duke Nukem has no depth and no story and was always designed to be a caricature .
