On the official release Vivaldi still has problems with playing YouTube videos. It stutters, frames on the 60fps video are between 30-57 with avg. 45fps. On fullscreen it stabilizes mostly. Funny thing is that stutters only occurs when you're on that tab. If it is in the background it runs smoothly. I hope you guys can fix it. I love this browser.
I must apologize for not replying earlier but I have only just discovered (= taken the trouble to look for and find) this page.
Your remarks of a year ago are now, a year later (obviously) much appreciated.

Chrome/Chromium 56.0.2924.76 just got released to the stable channel, complete with 51 security fixes. No wonder they were eager to get this out the door! The 56-beta core browser code was pretty stable so hopefully this will turn out to be a good solid foundation for Vivaldi 1.7.
I'm sure that once you guys get the more ambitious features in place and begin to hone in on fine tuning, you'll add small but important details that enhance the UX. One such detail is animation in all appropriate places, and one such place is that toggling extension visibility should animate when your search bar or address bar extends or contracts. (Of course, you can go to other extreme like Opera Neon, where the UI elements all feel like they're sitting on jelly. Way too much.)
On Linux Mint 18.1 with Vivaldi 1.6.689.32 (Official Build) dev (64-bit) when I visit that page I almost instantly get the BSDB (Black Screen of the Dead Bird) : https://www.linuxmint.com/rel_serena_cinnamon.php
I deleted my profile and same problem, am I the only one ??
EDIT : Same problem with Gmail. I think it's when the page load the Hangout module.
Also I get a lot more BSDB on Linux Mint 64b than on Win 10 64b am I the only one too ??
