Tab stack tiling, on demand plugins in tabs, more mouse gestures, better import and a more snappy UI


  • Vivaldi Team

    Hello everyone,

    It’s happy Thursday which usually means it is not a day for our weekly snapshot.

    However, we’ve decide to make a new build available anyway. We just had too many things that we wanted to share with you and we had some broken features and some regressions in our last build as well.

    See the full blog post here

    first haha
    and downloading :)



  • I have just downloaded this update. Even though it is experimental, I am on 64 bit on Windows 7 and it is my main browser at the moment. There is one glitch which is a bit of an annoyance for me. My taskbar is at the top of the screen and it is set to auto-hide. When I switch to Vivaldi window, it spans the whole screen including taskbar's edge hence moving mouse to the top of the screen does not open taskbar until I hit start menu shortcut key. It is a one or two pixels glitch but I am hoping it will be fixed with Monday's build :)
    Also the ability to be able to save pages in MHTML would be great.
    And the ability to choose download location before saving files would be greater! Thank you!



  • So now window behaviour on OS X was changed but is still faulty. Now when closing the last open window of Vivaldi via cmd+w, a new window opens every time. There's not supposed to be any window open but the app should still be running in the background. Klicking the red x still closes the app completely, which is obviously also wrong. Is it that hard to copy the behaviour that every other browser has on OS X?

    This and touch gestures are the 2 most important things that need to be fixed on OS X, I would say this is more urgent than adding any additional features, because without these things, Vivaldi is completely unusable on OS X.



  • You guys are incredible. You made more progress in a couple of months then Opera made in last year or two. Keep it up, oh please keep it up :D



  • Will we have also have a separated option for plugin on demand? I usually want to display images but have plugins on demand.



  • You guys are just absolutely amazing! You doing just what we want and wish. Thank you for fulfilling your word! Keep it up, Vivaldi. We love you! :D :)



  • Oh God!, No auto-update!! yeah!! Good work!

    I like the fact that I can work with two windows or more windows in a tab stack, but also I like to have an option to split screen with two windows, for example, one fixed for Twitter or IRC and another to normal browsing (like Maxthon does)

    About the new background progress, I like more the old way (circle loading) …



  • Yes! It´s really more snappy. Thank you very much.



  • Thanks very much. Appreciate the rapid progress!

    In the long run I think it would be much easier for everyone trying to follow releases on the Team Blog if you would always include the version number (v.1.0.138.4) in the blog post title. Makes it much easier when scanning the blog posts to tell which post goes with which version.



  • when will you fix the overheat issue?

    The app drives my Mac CPU heat into the red zone (using iStat) after only a few moments of operation.

    I don't mind the occasionally crashing app, but toasting my hardware is kind of a showstopper.



  • Tab stacking tiling seems to be a nice feature



  • Thanks for Linux option to move Window controls to left. Excellent!

    Startup performance is better too (on 64bit Linux). I haven't tested it on 32bit Linux yet which has been painfully slow.


  • Vivaldi Translator

    autoupdate issue:

    • open vivaldi
    • confirm installing (actually it's confirmation of downloading. Should have been changed to "download installation" then).
    • hit install
      Vivaldi do not close and installer will not appear and give you back that Vivaldi is running.

    after closing Vivaldi and hit "try again" it will finally show an installation window as we know - well, I already hit 2 that I want to upgrade. Why I should hit it for the 3rd time (even I can change destination here but… still, 3 confirmation and 1 "please close Vivaldi before install" is a lot :) )
    PS: I like the first dialogue a lot (skip version?! :) later, install... nice!). But the other confirmations and windows before it installs are a bit more than is needed I think.



  • Now please fix the address bar (omnicarap), option to disable the annoying autocomplete and old style drop down button in addressbar.



  • vivaldi://flags/#save-page-as-mhtml

    Mac is letting processes to overheat their CPU cores? I didnt knew that..



  • Could you, only, please disable those annoying tab previews? Or make them optional?



  • @Carach:

    You can disable it in Options



  • I just got a popup telling me that version 1.0.138.7 was available, and asked if I wanted to download. I answered Yes, and was then prompted for user-ID and Password …:shock:
