Snapshot 1.0.111.2 now with experimental 64-bit Windows build and more language support



  • One thing I noticed and a suggestion. On Windows, don't launch Vivaldi right after the installation. The reason is you are launching it with Administrator high privileges, if the installer is launching it after installation because its passing its privileges. The installer in Windows executes with high permissions and so its also launching the browser the same way. Some users may actually not close their browsers for hours and be browsing like this before they close it or restart it, then it executes correctly. Easy fix, don't launch it after installation. Not from the setup.exe at least.



  • Great job, but there is not the primary function of synchronization of everything and using two computers and a smartphone, I can not use Vivaldi as the default browser and then dispose Opera12 and other browsers that somehow have.
    Do you have a prediction for when it will be added? I hope really soon …
    Also missing the function on the right to open links in tabs in the background, that i use a lot.
    Vivaldi can support the opening of hundreds of tabs at the bar and maybe without filling up all the memory of the PC, as did Opera12?



  • Opening links using right mouse button is not efficient anyway. Why don't you use middle mouse button for that? That's one click instead of right click and choose open in background.



  • Opening links in background using right mouse button is not efficient. Middle mouse button is working quite well in this regard (you do one click instead of one right click and one left click on the menu item to choose open in bacground).
    You can also left click on the links while holding CTRL key and you will get the same result.
    Strange thing is that middle mouse button click and left click + CTRL doesn't work this way on rottentomatoes.com



  • @maxxxp (reply doesn't work for me for some reason)
    Right mouse button is not efficient to open links in the background. Middle mouse button is good for this. You can also use combination CTRL and left click. It's faster.
    I don't know why those methods doesn't work on rottentomatoes.com though.



  • Still can't install it from User account 😞



  • Where is the "preferences" file stored on Windows 7 SP1 64 bit? Great work!



  • I believe a lot of you might know it by now, but for those of you who don't know… Vivaldi can install any add-ons from Google Chrome Web Store.
    You can also manage those extensions on Vivaldi by going to vivaldi://chrome/extensions 😃



  • Nice!, I use it every day now . Please also integrate the Master Password soon 🙂



  • I use this browser on and off for almost a month and see some progress - for example there was a pop-up about full-screen mode at youtube that didn't go away, but now it works fine. That's great - you guys work hard! I used to take active part in Opera community until found out that any critical notes about old problems at least were ignored and at most just removed. So I terminated my account there since there is no sense to test drive if nobody cares about negative results.

    But I have one question about Vivaldi. For now it's just a front-end for Blink or Chromium, one among many others. I liked Opera for its own engine - Presto in later versions. Since the lead of that project is one of co-founders of the original Opera project, is there any chance to see Presto itself or functional fork in Vivaldi eventually? Otherwise I don't see any sense to use Chromium under front-end instead of Chromium under Chrome. I already tried several different front-ends including current Opera and every time the engine developer's browser worked better. That is pretty obvious. So - is there any plans to switch for developing a full functional browser instead of a front-end for somebody's engine?

    Anyway - thanks for your work - in any case it will fit somebody's needs even in that limited by borrowed engine features.



  • I think, you can try to use a hack - just relocate bookmarks from Chromium browser you use - they are under User Data - Default in the file "Bookmarks". I didn't try it under current Opera, but it worked fine with original Chrome. At least Vivaldi has that file in the similar location.

  • Strange - I tried to reply for one of the comments above and twice it didn't work.

    It's about bookmark relocating to Vivaldi. Just a thought - I tried it under original Chrome and see similar file structure in Vivaldi's directory, so it can work here as well.

  • @kuka:

    Based upon the interviews I have read with the Vivaldi CEO Jon von Tetzchner, the answer to your question is no.



  • Everyone probably already knows all this but here is a link that has a LOT of US information on HTTP2 that I think most would be happy to listen to!

    Jon maybe even, I guess chrome includes speedy which is googles name BEFORE the release of HTTP2. This is really technical that is done by an ASSEMBLER programmer I've listened to for years.

    http://twit.tv/show/security-now/495

    That is in the last 1/3 of podcast link. A plus is a deconstruction of the stuxnet virus that Kaspersky found of changing firmware of drive controller and how powerful it is.

    I can understand most of it and gets rather technical but still basic enough for dummies as myself. Just thought everyone would want to understand http2 implementation that I am sure this excellent browser will have, may even give some ideas.
