    @andrewz1986 "Instantaneous" could be technically an exaggeration. By the time I can release the scroll wheel, the page has zoomed. (exception is my 11-year-old laptop which can delay by .1 (one tenth) of a second)

    I have my cursor in the middle of my screen.

    I have six setups, and none are slow.

    I may be "wrong" about your setups, but I am not wrong about mine.

    Also, QC works on all of them to zoom by entering f2, "page zoom xxx."

    So, evidently, there is some hardware, driver, OS or 3P software factor unaccounted for here.

    I tried latest final build of Vivaldi and I'm surprised that when I use slider on the status bar (hover it over with mouse cursor and scrolling the wheel on mouse) to perform the zoom, re-rendering process is pretty fast, almost on par with Firefox. Unfortunately, taskbar area is too small, so it's pretty uncomfortable. Could we get the same speed when performing the zooming via Ctrl + rolling the scrolling wheel please?

    Just tested it on Vivaldi 2.2.1373.4.
    Same here! Looks like the "normal" zoom (i.e. zoom like in other browsers) is only available when using slider and

    hover it over with mouse cursor and scrolling the wheel on mouse

    On the gif below I zoomed from 20-500% using the "fast zoom technique" and from 500% to 20% using Ctrl + rolling the scrolling wheel (very, very slow).

    see gif

    @stardust Using a really fast scroll, it definitely does not pick up all of the detents in scroll progress. You have to use a moderate scrolling speed. Using step by step scroll, it jumps right to the new value - meaning that I can use the wheel to scroll from 100% to 110% in no time, 100% to 150% in about a second or less, from 100% to 500% in 7 seconds or so, and from 20% to 500% in about ten seconds

    Yeah, I guess I understand why scrolling works this way in Vivaldi and I really don't like it (looks like a bug for me). If I remember correctly zoom was exactly like in Chrome when Vivaldi was in alpha/beta stage.

    @stardust True. Early on, it did not register individual steps in zoom like it does now.



  • @ayespy Try to zoom the page in Mozilla Firefox or Microsoft Edge from 100 percent to 200 percent via Ctrl + rolling the scrolling wheel. And then go back to Vivaldi and perform the same action. You cannot get other impression but that Vivaldi is painfully slow. Along with other performance issues and backlogs, it makes Vivaldi unusable for me.

    @pesala page zoom 300 works in 2.2.1373.4.
