Currently there isn't much we can do besides wait and see. In case you want to follow the discussion happening with chromium (as we do), check the following links:
chromium explanatory documentation
chromium group discussion about it
chromium bug tracker issue
@pafflick Yes I saw your comment about the snapshot, but I wanted to try it anyway This message is not so important, maybe I will just deactivate automatic updates check and do the checks manually from time to time, so that the message would not appear.
Thanks for the link, I'll check it out and go with the changes when I'll have time and, offcourse, patience.
I was wondering if there are going to be new features
There's a number of set stages to a vivaldi release cycle. As I see them:
Start a new snapshot with the vivaldi version increased
Testing fixes for some bugs that slipped through into the previous stable
Bump the chromium engine version
Fix all the regressions that happen because of the engine
Start introducing and testing new features (a new feature every couple of snapshots)
Refactor and polish the interface for new features
Enter release candidate (RC) stage - no new features for this cycle, it's just about bug fixing
Full Release of a stable version
The only times we usually get new features is during stage 4, sometimes 5. Often stage 2 and 3 are mixed together and if we're lucky we also get some new features then.
@petergyger I understand your position. However, the security concerns are not for single users. They are for all user data all at once. Without certain safeguards, a web interface can compromise everyone's data at the same time.
@LandisTwo I am sure many of your older bookmark links have long gone to eternal rest in section 404 of the internet cemetery. Before importing them to Vivaldi, I used Sören Henschel's "Bookmarks Organizer" to test for invalid and then for duplicate url's. The process eliminated 200+ bookmarks. Also, before Vivaldi added the direct Firefox import, I had success by importing them in html format.
From the Vivaldi Browser Help Center :
Right-click anywhere on an open webpage to open the context menu
Select Add Page to Web Panel from the menu
Or do you want an independent button to place in the Vivaldi Interface ?
