Vivaldi launches its first beta

  • Agree. Even FF dev tools, which is not bad at all, stays far away.

  • Great work guys. Thks :!:

  • What does Vivaldi's mail feature have to do with Vivaldi webmail service?

  • Dragonfly needs support from the core, or better: it needs the scope protocol support: Chromium does not have that.

  • PPAPI Flash works fine.
    As for Java and "rightfully so!", how does one uses java-applets now? IMO it was a very ugly step to drop NPAPI support before having any working alternative. One evident example - my bank's website. Everytime I need to use it, I have to open another browser which is annoying as hell!

  • Confirmed on Win7 also. Saw this yesterday.

  • Congratulations! My first impression is that it feels super fast - especially when I've installed Disconnect and I don't get bogged down by heavy-loading advertisements on web pages. Good job.

    If I had two feature requests right now, it would be:

    1. Allow me to disable the password manager. I have my own.

    2. Allow me to see / clear browsing history. (Update: I just found that bit.) Ideally I'd like to have my browsing history auto-magically disappear and delete itself after just a few days.

  • AFAICS the extension violates a Content Security Policy for script execution. The extension probably needs to ask for the necessary permissions to work.

  • Gunning for native support is still better though.

  • Good work on the updates, guys and gals. Looking good. Feeling fast.

    Two things;

    1. Would like to disable password manager. I have my own.

    2. Would like to automatically set browser history to delete after X days.

  • Grats guys! Keep up the great work! We're finally at the stage where the focus is on squashing those darn bugs! πŸ˜ƒ I still can't believe I tried every single snapshot since day 1! Time sure flies! Very excited for future beta snapshots! πŸ˜‰

  • Good job, I can't wait for a Mail in Vivaldi :)!

  • I agree. Featurewise, there is nothing wrong with Devtools.
    But Dragonfly is a lot more intuitive. Also way faster (but had less live changes in DOM inspector as far as I remember).

    I had to adapt myself to use Devtools. And at times still have to.
    With Dragonfly, it pretty much all made sense from the get-go.

    I don't expect Vivaldi to re-create Dragonfly in the near future. There is way more important tings to get going first. But it would be nice addition at some point.

  • Yes, the only issue that stops me using V as a daily driver.

  • Ghostery works fine here. Windows 10 64-bit.

  • With all respect (btw. congrats as well! πŸ™‚ ). What about the bug:
    Summary: whole UI freeze
    Key: VB-10356

    I really do not understand how this 2-3 builds old major regression could make it into beta since reported and confirmed by many ppl here… It's driving me crazy as this bug keep occurring X times per hour...
    (I'm glad that this will be fixed for me - snapshot user - soon but beta users will not be happy I guess)

  • Most annoying thing Vivaldi:
    Try to select part of the url by clicking it and the whole url is selected. And the annoying part: When you click there's http:// to be added in the front. Result is that you need to move mouse again to find the correct place AGAIN.

    Small thing but please keep the url at the same place (or add option to show/hide http(s):// permanently.

    RIP Opera 12 πŸ™‚

  • I just checked - I started using Vivaldi with 1.0.083 on 29 January. By the end of February I had replaced Opera 12.17 with Vivaldi as my all day browser. Thanks to all of you Developers and everyone else who have participated in the Alpha testing. There are still bugs, but hey, I have been a beta tester on occasion since the 1980s. Lots of fun.

  • They force you to use that walking security nightmare named Java? Switch the bank. Really. They don't give a **** about security.
