Vivaldi launches its first beta

  • Congrats to Vivalti Team ๐Ÿ™‚
    Don't just keep up the excellent work, make it even better. You know you are that good ๐Ÿ˜‰

  • Please correct the error - non-displayed site icon in the folder on the bookmarks bar

  • Congratulations. Loving the browser. So glad Google Inbox is now supported and loading. Chrome Extensions seem to be working too. Still need to add moreโ€ฆ but so far, so good.

  • Hi. Congrats on reaching this milestone. Keep going.
    One remark though. You mention "Full Extensions support" but sadly the bug I opened back in early October (VB-9694) is still not fixed. To me this is an obstacle to fully switch to Vivaldi as I work on both PC and OSX and for the time being, nobody beats Safari in terms of battery consumption on OSX. So I really need Xmarks to have my bookmarks easily accessible on both platforms.
    Hope you can fix this very soon.

  • yeah, i know i can do that, but it's unconfortable. I like moving my windows a lot (between monitors or just using windows snapping or resizing browser to test responsive design) - and I'd like devtools to follow what I do.

    It took Opera 2-3 months to make attaching possible, so I believe Vivaldi will figure that out too.

  • dragonfly is open source, probaby tied with presto, but with some effort it should be portable.

    but idk if dragonfly is free to use

  • dragonfly is much more intiutive. im not advanced user of dev tools, just using simple stuff, and dragonfly is winning here. just test both of them, especially on dom inspector

  • i bet mail is in advanced stage now (i'm basing my thoughts on what i've seen when they unintentionally leaked vivaldi with mail enabled and the time that has passed since then) and dropping it now wouldn't be good idea.

    roundcube, aka vivaldi webmail is not prepared to be responsive. there are few (paid) themes for it, that say they're responsive, but still - the way roundcube is written - makes it unprepared for RWD and even more unprepared for mobile (i know this is not what you are talking about).

  • "We will continues"
    "We will continues"
    "We will continues"

    This will appear in my nightmaresโ€ฆ

    YES! Finally the first Beta! Keep it up guys! Now I wanna see those performance improvements!

  • 1. Is your computer time correctly set? If not, fix it, that should solve the issue (if you're on Windows you can sync the time with a time server).
    2. Have an antivirus? Try to deactivate it for a while.

  • Tried it, unistalled it and reinstalled Vivaldi_TP4.

    This version do no detect most of my plugin's. Java, Flash, Silverlight, VLC and more, all gone. Lots of pages working in last version now do not work. Using now an "old" Vivaldi (and happy with it except for missing mails and many forever empty pictures in speed-dial and some other details) I am close to state on my Opera browser 12.17.

  • Xmarks does not work either. It loads but when clicking "sign in" nothing happens. I read somewhere on this blog that this is caused by Vivaldi not supporting some form of extension-spawned popup windows. So, sadly, "full extension support" is not exactly correct ๐Ÿ˜ž

  • Obscure but probably worth mentioning: under KDE4, when the alt+tab switcher is set to large icons, Vivaldi's icon shows up small there, as 48px icon instead of 128px (actually Chrome does this too).

  • Thanks Botchius. Time and antivirus is ok. I get same warning in FF, when try to download Beta build 52. I think I see the certificate is just misconfig.

    Wondering if others get that warning also or if a tech can confirm its just the certificate config and it ok to download?

  • Would be great to have the ability to manually sort extension buttons like in Chrome or Firefox. Keep up the great work and make Opera shiver ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

  • The address bar doesn't always get focus on opening new tab, but I cannot pin down in what conditions this happens. It does happen somewhat frequently though. (under both Unity and KDE4)

  • That is because Chromium is dropping support for NPAPI plugins (and rightfully so!), so you'll need to find PPAPI alternatives. You can get PPAPI flash from here: just select your Operating System and "FP 19 for Opera and Chromium - PPAPI". Please do note that i haven't personally tried it but i assume it should work. As for Java, Silverlight and VLC - i don't believe they offer PPAPI versions so unfortunately they'll not be usable before (or rather, if) they make the switch.

  • Congratulations, guys! Thank you for the great work you have been doing.

  • never mind ..hmmm issue is mysteriously gone in both V and FF ๐Ÿ˜‰

  • Wow! It's just an amazing Browser. Like it a lot and if development continues that great way, then Vivaldi would be my Browser ๐Ÿ™‚
