Or you could install a user agent switcher extension
Pros: You can switch with a few clicks between different user agents
Cons: This might not work on every site - so you sometime still need the solution posted by luetage and of course you need to install another extension which occupies a few resources
Yeah, it always baffles me how Vivaldi decides what the window size should be - at this point it seems to be totally random. I use private windows a lot and often they open in a "restored" state (even though I always use maximized windows), but when I change their size (separately for "standard" & private windows), the newly opened window might get its size from either the "standard" window, the private window or open in full size in either "restored" or "maximized" state. 😦
It is a mess, indeed. I hope that the devs are experiencing this too and that they'll come up with a fix for this at some point. Nevertheless, you can always report any bugs here. Just make sure to be descriptive and provide the necessary details to help them reproduce your issues.
@ashkir: Start out by turning off "Always prefer Bookmarks" in the Address Bar Settings. If that doesn't work, then remove the bookmarks you are being taken to. After THAT, you might also have to clear History and Typed History so that the browser no longer has a reference point for those sites.
I tried Vivaldi a long time ago, and now I tried it again.
This Directwrite is horrible!
I'm serious, that it hurts my eyes!
Not figuratively, but literally.
I'm going back to Firefox. I can't read anymore with this.
@schreck By posting your requests in the official Feature Requests threads you can help the developers to measure the approximate demand for certain features. While the demand for some feature might not be the key factor they take into account when deciding on "what to do next", it certainly has some impact on their priorities.
As you can see here, the demand for the feature you're asking for is pretty low. Actually - judging from the linked post - you're the only one interested in it. Maybe that's why they didn't bother themselves to provide such option yet. I'm on your side with this request, because I generally agree that Vivaldi should offer more customization options, though I wouldn't probably ever use it and that's why I didn't vote for it.
There is a tremendous amount of work to be done yet before Vivaldi will be ready to compete with other big browsers, like Chrome, Firefox or Opera, so the developers must always make sure, that they're using their time and resources wisely and that they're focusing on things that are actually needed/wanted by their users (the majority). There will be time for the less popular request - it just has to wait for now...
I suggest you to just keep posting your request in each Feature Request thread - if you're that eager to have those features - and perhaps one day they'll deliver them to you. And make sure to mention that the feature you're requesting should be optional - otherwise, some people might think that you're asking for an obligatory change of some functionality and thus they won't vote for it.
All we need to do is to be patient. And spread the word about Vivaldi. That's how we can speed these things up. 😉
I have never ever needed to re-visit my browser to look at my old downloads.
I go to my hard drive to look at them.
And besides this, if you download an archive file, then extract it and delete the archive, the browser link is broken.
I just don't see the purpose of it leaving it there after it has been downloaded.
@CantankRus In Windows 10 Youtube doesn't look the same in Vivaldi and Chrome at 100% zoom . To make the youtube page look the same as in Chrome the youtube page in Vivaldi has to be zoomed to 120%, yet the video is smaller.The page gets a similar look but the video doesn't have the same size.
@Isildur: Yes - testers who use DevTools (which would not include me) and the developers are working back and forth on this "dock to the bottom" thing at a pretty mad pace. Because they essentially have to re-write the devtools popup to make it dockable to the non-native Vivaldi UI, there are a lot of unexpected regressions that pop up once docking is enabled.
