@jacekn: Still crashes, period! Not only when searching, but in curious moments. Unfortunately most of them seems to be related to mouse gestures: close tab and...crash, retry with the close tab button and...OK - of course this is not an accurate observation because the conditions are never the same but it's my feeling that mouse gestures (which I use extensively if not exclusively) are causing the problem.
@Diotima You can try it the other way around, in this blogpost there are download links, select the version (32 or 64bit) you like, download it and start the installation.
The installation program will notice that Vivaldi already is installed and will offer you an update button in the lower right corner.
Running Vivaldi Snapshot on Manjaro, Xfce edition, 64 bit. I had some issues last night trying to log into Pocket. When I would attempt to login through the Chrome store app, the web page would be completely black. It remained that way even if I entered the address manually. Nothing seemed to work. The browser crashed a few times. I had trouble logging in through the non-snapshot version as well.
@ayespy: Hi. Sometimes certain fixes don't get mentioned in changelogs as I've seen reports on that happening before. I usually check to see if the scrollbar issues have been fixed. One is, but haven't seen the other issue addressed. Unless they're tied together. Thanks.
@pafflick Do you have any idea what chance there is for me to believe you about this being his everyday outfit? Answer...not a chance. It is funny just to think about it. But I'm not buying it at all. Nice try though.
@ian-coog I think that this was done out of caution over the issues of subsequent videos freezing/not playing (which could point to a more serious underlying issue that needs to be resolved), no playback controls, etc. They're not killing PiP, just polishing the feature a bit more before releasing it to Stable. In my opinion, it was a prudent decision.
I would have kept it, adding a warning about the issue about PiP not working perfectly yet
@pesala: what do you mean? It should work both ways - over tabs by Wheel and 'by holding the right mouse button and scrolling while anywhere in a page' (Proof: https://vivalditips.com/navigation/tab-cycling/en).
So I use it to switch tabs by RMB+Wheel over the page, and context menu opens after the switch occurs. This issue doesn't occur in 2.0 stable.
@mib2berlin: There are not thousands of codecs but thousands of combinations of settings for all kinds of material and that's what causes the problems (we have over 8k tests in the testsuite).
Apart from that: .h264 will stay for a loooong time simply because most of the cameras or video production etc support it, because every re-encoding lowers the quality apart from if you work lossless (which most youtubers etc don't do because they don't have the necessary hardware) and because it will take a long time until hardware decoding support will come to AV1 (first chips in significant numbers are estimated for Spring 2019 - and I doubt all people will change their hardware immediately). I did some tests yesterday and it needs a quite powerful CPU to decode higher resolution AV1 for now, whereas VP8 and h264 can use the GPU, which is much better suited for such purposes. Additionally buffering on AV1 doesn't seem to work well yet, at least it made some problems with higher resolutions here - especially speaking of >1080p@60Hz - the connection was not good enough to keep up a continuous stream.
