Snapshot 1.0.209.3 More visual improvements and better mouse support


  • Vivaldi Team

    In the previous snapshot we introduced the option for a more classic looking (gray) UI. Following your helpful feedback we have tweaked and further improved this theme. As promised, we have also introduced a new option for a darker theme. To make it easier to work with keyboard shortcuts, we have added a new "cheat sheet" for keyboard shortcuts and updated our settings window. In addition, we added initial support for mouse scroll wheel tab switching and for Linux users, forward/backward mouse key support.

    When mail-client will be integrated?



  • When will the option to delay loading of background tabs be provided? It's very urgent when lots of tabs are open while starting Vivaldi.



  • Thanks a lot for scroll tab switching! It really needs an option for choosing direction, though. Seems to be set to the modern, Apple style now.

    Another thing, is there or will there be an option to remove the status bar?



  • Single key shortcuts are disabled in this build. Is this temporary? I use the Period button to search in page (an Opera 12 shortcut) and now it's not working.

    a few regressions:

    1. if address bar is on the bottom on the "speed dial" page it's particularly bellow the screen
    • this could be connected with the tabs on the left (since they are going down and are not visible as well)
    1. expanded/proper menu (not the simple V one) is not readable on darker themes taken from favicons (as FB has - dark blue)

    a few other glitches can be found as well (as short-cuts has not translated the "up/down/left/right" etc). Will look further to it and report some of these issues.

    you can re-activate it in settings. Though, It was active by default till this build (where we can found it disabled by default).

    WIR. It was already told many times that M3 is almost ready but they need to be sure that people will not lose they mails.


  • Vivaldi Team

    You can remove the status bar. Just go to "View -> Toggle Status Bar"


  • Vivaldi Team

    Yes it was disabled by default because it does cause problems on some sites. But if you want it you can just re-enable it. Also, just because it is disabled by default, that does not mean we are down prioritising it. We will keep fixing issues as we come across them.



  • Love the new gray look, it's really nice. New settings style is also fine.
    But please! I beg you! Bring us basic extensions bar support! It is the only thing that prevent me to use Vivaldi as secondary browser (primary is obviously O12 with its mail and rss).

    Being worked on as we speak!



  • Thanks @ruario and @ahoj1234 I see the option now. At the top in plain sight :oops:



  • Hahaha, thanks, I've been fumbling in tools->settings for ages!


  • Vivaldi Team

    Currently the scrolling is tied to Tab Cycling Order. We are looking at more options for the future.

    Thanks for the great build. One problem - search bar is not working. No response when I press Enter button.

    I have a feeling, that the browser is much smoother. But there's still a lot work to do. Hold CTRL+T for a while and you'll see what i mean ;)

    My requests:

    • session manager (like in O12)
    • option to clean recent-closed tabs list
    • expanding tab stack (like in O12)
    • global zoom level

    Confirmed. Also I can not add a new item on Speed Dial via the big +. It does not react on Add button or Enter key.


  • Vivaldi Team

    No problem. Maybe I should have said it was off by default in the post. I considered putting it as a known issue but that would have been wrong since it implies that it is a bug just for this build.



  • VB-1681 works.
    Thanks Espen, I owe you a truck with Donuts. ;)

    (I can't import data from Opera 15+ → ~/.config/opera)

    Thanks, I see the problem with search box. With regards to the speed and performance of the UI. We are actively working on this now.
