Snapshot 126.96.36.199-1 Startup settings and tab-switching performance
One of the popular requests we have focused a bit on in this build is Startup settings. You now have 3 options for startup: Continue from last time, start with Homepage and start with Speed Dial. More option will be added later in coming builds.
Yay! First. Thank you for this. Now to check it out!
Tab switching still seems very slow for me.
Monday-builds are finally back…
This build seems really fast. Keep the good work going.
Great job, will check it and hope, vivaldi will once be as succesful as opera had been
Thanks, for the hard work guys, much appreciated.
P.S. Here is an install script for any Linux users on non-deb/rpm distros or another script for any Linux user's who want to test the build first prior to install.
Two problems I detected with pinned tabs:
- You shouldn't be able to close pinned tabs with mouse gestures
- Pinned tab was not switching to top position (tabs on right side) - I can't reproduce this one now. Was sort of one-time-bug.
Links opened as new tabs are opening to the left, rather than the right of the current tab. At least for me.
EDIT 1: I can't reproduce with a clean install. It might be related to one of my extensions. I'll check. It is a regression however.
EDIT 2: On restart I can no longer reproduce. I'll update if it comes back and I can isolate it.
Welcome to Vivaldi. It's great to see you here.
One of the popular requests we have focused a bit on in this build is Startup settings.
but selecting speed dial or homepage can't keep window size and panel on startup.
Missing Developer ID for OS X build
vivaldi://about opens with a very low zoom level
This is really starting to become something I'd willingly use on a daily basis. Keep up the good work!

History>Clear browsing data still causes Vivaldi crash (Linux.)
Thanks for this build! Tab switching is way faster now, although sometimes they still take a while to load/switch properly.
Now, I hadn't realized this until I started using the browser's Task Manager (I'm so glad you guys made it, finding which tab is devouring your RAM is a real life saver), but the memory usage just skyrockets without any reason! Right now this Vivaldi page is using more than 500K! I know this is a Chromium problem, as Google Chrome and Opera 15+ also present this issue, but do you guys think it can be fixed? It's really annoying having a tab with a single image consuming the same amount of memory or more than a YouTube tab running a 1080p video.
Also another annoying feature of Chromium based browsers: when you select text in multiple lines, blank spaces also get selected. Do you think it's possible to make selection work as it did on Presto, where only text was selected?
It happened to me after the upgrade too (with 0 extensions installed), but it's gone after a restart.
Thanks! It is really weird to be the one writing the comments and giving the feedback, rather than the one tracking the feedback.
Thanks Mağruf. Nice to see you too!
