Oh, almost skipped this one.
So glad someone focused on standards and UX joins Vivaldi. Thanks for joining them! And thanks Vivaldi for hiring.
I miss Hakom 😞
If you don't mind my opinion, my biggest concern for Vivaldi right now it's performance (let's say "click-to-UI-feedback-response-time"). Vivaldi right now takes a long time to start up, and with several tabs opened, switching tabs takes more time than acceptable (more than 0.5-0.7s, I think, isn't acceptable in 2016).
In comparison, Edge (the MS new browser) is making leaps regarding performance. I already started using it for some small tasks.
Many want to donate but they say they won't. Hopefully if things get tight or change they will let us to keep it going.
All the pundants say all are going to mobile anyway ( or rather they would rather force them to that more profitable market) never me, not unless emergencies I need mobile. HATE bad copies of real items.
too bad you are still only halfway through the mouse gestures, we still need way to configure rockers
and besides that: drag and drop de/attaching tabs to window, opening new tab middle-clicking on tab bar and a lot of stuff unnoticeable until someone takes it from you
Fantastic ! Just discovered Vivaldi, installed and made it my default browser! I've been hanging on to Opera 12.17 for years now but it has been becoming increasingly buggy.
With Vivaldi it's time to say goodbye to 12.17. I'd love to see that old "Log In" button introduced and also an option for when you click on an open Tab in the Tab Bar the page closes and reverts to the last one viewed. Also would love to see an option to scale the size of the bookmarks / add more columns in Speed Dial so that more could be fitted into the screen. Great job so far !
Chrome let you run multiple instances with as different users. I haven't seen this in any of the other browsers except via command line arguments. If this isn't a feature on the table, I for one ditch chrome for Vivaldi. I do a lot of web design and like to create user account for each client and work in a separate browser for each client. That way, when I'm done I can hand over the username and password and all my bookmarks etc. are available to them.
I woud like to see a "-tan" version of Tony, like the Opera-tan ❤
