Vivaldi 2.5 is the first web browser with Razer Chroma integration

By now, Razer Chroma lighting effects aren’t new – the RGB illumination found on many Razer keyboards and peripherals. Beyond being a light show, the Chroma effect can also be set to sync with the content showing on your monitor, extending the experience further.

Vivaldi’s latest update – Vivaldi 2.5- brings this beyond gaming to web browsing too. Basically, your keyboard and mouse can now automatically reflect the colors from the website you’re visiting as you’re browsing.  Switching web pages will see a corresponding switch in colors on your peripherals, so you can now enjoy a “more immersive browsing experience”.

Chroma away

To unlock this new integration, update to Vivaldi 2.5 and  head to Settings >Themes.

Towards the bottom of the main Themes settings page, tick the box to “Enable Chroma” and pick which devices should be synced. The lights will now adapt to the color of the site being visited in Vivaldi. This integration is fully compatible with Windows PCs.

You can also set Chroma devices to stick to a single color by unticking the box for “Active Color from Active Page” in the Theme editor. The lights will now use the Accent Color of the current Theme.

“We’re excited to see Razer Chroma extend beyond the game and into the Vivaldi web browser” says Razer Senior Product Manager Kushal Tandon. “Gamers can now experience their Chroma devices natively integrated with the websites they visit, syncing in real-time for a truly personalized browsing experience.”
