Need the text "Vivaldi" in task list process names
I'm on Linux, and I use imWheel to adjust mouse scroll-wheel properties, as the standard driver is much too slow. imWheel operates via a user config file, in which the user can spec scroll speeds based on process names. Thus, for Slimjet or Firefox I can use the header "Slimjet" or "Firefox". The wildcard "*" can be added as well, for when the process name my be dynamically formulated. The problem is that Vivaldi's tab processes do not include "Vivaldi" in their name. If I key to the process name, Vivaldi picks up the imWhleel setting, and it's fine. Thus, for eBay pages, I need to write an "eBay" entry in the imWheel settings file. But that is unworkable. I need to have the word Vivaldi in each Vivaldi process to make this work.
Also, this would be helpful for any program that uses the process name in its hook, such as AutoIt.

Could use it in the window name as well for CLI tools like 'wmctrl' and 'xdotools'.
That's a good point also. AutoIt uses the Window name as well. As it stands, it's very hard to hook to Vivaldi, either by Window or process name.

This is also NEEDED to determine if an app is currently running on the computer (hidden or not).
I have real Opera 12.18, Firefox, & Vivaldi accessible, & need to know which one is running so my macro program can select it.
Problem: can't select the ID name "- Vivaldi" as a running PROGRAM window in Task Manager.
All(?) other browsers show their identity regardless of the webpage name…
- Comodo Dragon
- Opera (12:17)
- Mozilla Firefox
