Snapshot - Web Panels, Extension buttons UI, Progress bar info and tab performance improvements

  • - Ambassador -

    Awesome work devs! Thank you!

  • Request: Please add the option for the side bar panels (especially web panels) to overlap the webpage instead of resizing.
    I think it also reduces the burden on the browser to try and resize SD or the webpage every time a panel is opened.
    Request2: Please add notification badges on Web Panels like when getting a new notif from twitter or facebook. It really helps. πŸ™‚
    Request3: A small, dedicated forward and back button for web panels would be nice. For example, in, there's no way to go back when you click on a tweet or something. Pressing the backspace key on the keyboard works though but not sure if that is actually or officially implemented for web panels. But it'll be nice to have the option there for mouse users.

  • Quick search (Ctrl + Q) no longer lists currently open tabs. Is this a side effect of the tab switching performance update?

  • thank you so much for your hard work, Vivaldi is my browser from day one
    please option to hide Extension UI buttons., sync password and bookmark will be great

  • Extension button UI, yaaaayyyy!

  • Thank you for your work, guys! A couple of notes - there is no possibility of a common scaling of pages without zooming interface. Secondly i would like to open the bookmarks sidebar with one click and not with two. Another good idea would be to optimize the memory consumption of the browser - currently consumes quite a lot.

  • An update for my bug report VB-8001, where Vivaldi had problems with showing a post preview on Wordpress-based sites:

    In this build, the popup with the supposed post preview shows up (it was just empty before), but instead of the post preview it just goes to overall post list. So there's still no way to view the actual post preview.
    However, the original tab (the one where you click on the "Post preview" button) at least no longer crashes like it did before, so there's at least that.

  • wooohoooo this is awesome, waiting realy paid of. thank you guys

    Try running the installer as an administrator.

    Yay \o/

    BUG: Ctrl + Scrollwheel no longer zooms the web page. The slider on the status line still works as do keyboard shortcuts.

  • The fonts are terrible in this build. They are all blurred
    Chrome had this a while ago so I tried the same thing
    vivaldi –high-dpi-support=1 --force-device-scale-factor=1
    makes it better

  • YAY DAY!

  • Hold on. πŸ™‚

    Some important things are left, like link address popup on hover (would give twenty features like progress display for it)

    Yes, this is a workaround for VB-7705 (see in changelog above). It's Ctrl+Shift+Wheel for now IINM.

  • This update is awesome! Web Panels are great. I was already using skype in the browser what a great way to use it in the web panels; twitter too :). The page info in the address is a nice touch. Keep up the great work. Looking forward to the mail client πŸ™‚

  • Ctrl+Shift+Wheel for me works only as zoom-out. Does not matter if scroll up or down.

  • BUG: When clicking on the extension icon, the tooltip/options popup are not displayed completely. Some of the bottom and right portions are cut off. I tried it with the 'Instant Translate' and 'Magic Actions for Youtube' extensions.
