Better Visual Feedback



  • Sometimes when browsing sites that are badly designed or which suffer from less than stellar performance, clicking a link does not immediately appear to have done anything. Vivaldi should provide clear but unobtrusive visual feedback that it is working on something, similar to the way Chrome does it, where the favicon in the tab immediately changes to a rotating circle as soon as you click a link. This way the user will not have to wonder whether the link was properly activated, even if the site itself fails to provide feedback.

    Such evidence usually appears in the form of a moving color bar in the address bar.

    Prior to v1.3 it used to indeed. A slowly moving bar would be visible immediately when clicking a link, indicating that something was happening.

    Now with 1.3 (stable) this doesn't happen, only when receiving the response. Unfortunately sometimes it takes a long time on a website to actually make the request, leaving you with no visual aid to show you whether the request is being made or not.

    Imho this can be considered a regression bug.
