Snapshot 1.0.418.3 - Focusing on individual requirements, not statistics

  • Homepage option is "out of order".
    Nothing appears.
    Can't access settings nor type in an address in url box.

  • It's a real pleasure to read that Vivaldi team does not consider us as average users. So please re-introduce some simple Opera 12.x features:

    1)all keyboard shortcuts (like "ctrl+click" for saving images);

    2)diplay of remaining time when downloading a file;

    3)download tab (like in Opera 12.x) or a "download statusbar" like come Firefox addons (yes, I don't like download in sidebar).


  • Jup, that would be a nice addition to the RMB-context menu

  • Please don't get me wrong on this, the choice which browser you prefer and/or use is completely yours and I won't talk you out of it - but the point I really don't get is the following:

    If you like FF that much that you want Viv to be exactly like it (so a one on one copy) why don't you use FF in the first place?

  • Not the perfect solution but you can send a tab to another window:

    -> RMB on tab-stack
    -> "Move To"
    -> "New Window"

    You even can send the excluded tab back to the window he origins from …. but unfortunately he will re-integrate back into the stack - soo this is not only not a good solution it is even a bad workaround - sorry 😕 :lol:

  • I wholeheartedly agree!

    Ruarí, thank you so much for that wonderful statement. Those are very reassuring words, and it helps to hear you or other Vivaldi officials say them from time to time, just to be sure that Vivaldi's aim and mission are still to create a unique browser for the unique individuals that we all are.

    So, thanks again for reminding us of your intentions and also for your dedication to us, Vivaldi users.

    A great browser can be both powerful and user friendly. These qualities needn't be mutually exclusive, and, thus far, Vivaldi is living proof and a shining example of this.

    Oh, and thanks also for that great list of fixes and improvements. On to Final!

  • Just add one feature for developer tools: Dock panel 😃

  • Unfixed bugs (I have reported here) until current version:
    Vivaldi often crashes when I drag words of web page.
    IME doesn't activate imemdiately when I leave from and focus again to a text box that IME activated.
    In-page search box cannot close after I backward to Speed dial.
    History and site preferences page will not reload after I submit changes.
    Right down -> left click -> right up causes pop context menu up on speeddial.
    Restart of download causes to reset current download settings (folder and filename).
    Taskbar icon sometimes become to no response.

    Reorder tiled tab.
    Specify download directory as site preferences.
    Ctrl+click to save an image.
    Pinned tab with full width.
    Skin. More better if Opera 12's skins will be rescued.
    Open with…

  • In my opinium the stack of tabs is very hard to click. There is just a 3 px high border at the top of the stack. This could be better tangible.

  • I agree with you on the opening a new tab within a tab stack to stay in that tab stack, or at least opening links should open a new tab within the stack.

    I'm not much of a 2nd tab row user, but I know a lot of users have been asking for it. A lot of people have also been asking for scrollable tab bar when they get too many tabs. I'll have to wait and see which of the 2 I would find useful, because I don't suffer too much from too many tabs, and I use tab stacks for everything related, so I make the most of it.

    Probably the biggest thing I want in Vivaldi at the moment(which sometimes changes) is the tab cycling. I want it to mimic O12 as much as possible. O12 has a vertical tab list with thumbnails and customizable keyboard shortcuts, and I can turn on right-click scrolling to cycle through tabs and have the mouse hover over tab scrolling disabled, because that's annoying. It makes for great navigation. It would make even more sense in Vivaldi because they've added hibernating tabs, and it would make it so easy to navigate through your tabs without activating a hibernated tab.

  • That's why I prefer Vivaldi over any other browser. Anyway, I must admit that it's still a little odd for me to read such a statement from Ruarí Ødegaard. I still remember his time at Opera ASA, after their switch to Blink as someone who tried to talk down individuell opinions and feedback with those famous and anonymous user statsitics. It was more like "yes we have a comment section, but no matter what opinion you might have, we don't mind since you are the meaningless minority". Of course I know that this was the opinion of the company he was working for and the fact that he works for Vivaldi now shows that he deserves a second chance 😃

  • Hi there, thanks for the update!
    2 bugs:
    1. When using RMB+MW to switch between tabs and the destination tab is still loading the "switch UI" get stuck. You have to press ESC to close it.
    2. When I have switched to a tab sometime the zoom focus didn't work. That means: Switch to a tab (e. g. via RMB+MW). Don't click into the webpage. You can scroll up/down but CTRL+ + / - won't zoom in/out until you finally click into the webpage once.

    2 features:
    1. Please enable CTRL+LMB / CTRL+SHIFT+LMB on speeddial!
    2. Please enable a webpage zoom greater than 300%. For me (partially sighted) it a must have… unfortunately.

    Thanks for the great work!!!!

  • Unfortunately that doesn't appear to be a sentiment shared by the community, they all seem to want Opera 2: return of Opera.

  • Very impressed by your statement about your browser's goals. I like Vivaldi and can see it potentially being a game changer in the modern browser market, at least for the advanced and professional users. That may not pay off in terms of overall market share, but you'll get a lot of grateful and loyal users out of it.

    That said, there's one more thing I'd like to comment on. When a webpage plays some kind of audio, the browser fades in the loudspeaker to disable sound from that particular tab and fades it out again, once the sound has concluded. Unfortunately, that's a really inconvenient way of doing it, when the webpage in question only plays a short sound like a ding reminder. I'd love a way to mute a tab, even when no sound is being played there at the moment. Please add a context-menu entry for that, when clicking on the tab header.

    Secondly, I think that feature would also work for hibernating, so users are able to hibernate those specific tabs they don't need one by one. Maybe add another user-customizable option too, like "hibernate all tabs not visited in x minutes", so only keep those tabs loaded that the user is actively using, while everything else is hibernated.

    Edit: I just thought of one more small detail for a more convenient use of the browser. I've set up my Firefox so I can use a click with the middle mouse button to reopen the last closed tab. Why not add an option to do that in Vivaldi too, either on the unused space in the tab-bar, on the trash icon or even both?

  • I get the same thing if I have the uBlock option set to block Web Fonts. Do you have uBlock or something similar blocking Web Fonts?

  • - Ambassador -

    I have just installed the latest version and now I can't open a website. When I click on a bookmark and speeddial link the site don't open. Is this a bug?

  • Folgore,

    Does that happen with the cursor Arrow keys?

    For me the Arrow keys don't move the cursor Up/Down when I edit a Bookmark, they scroll through the rest of the 'text info' for the other Bookmarks but the highlight stays on the currently selected Bookmark. The Enter key closes the editor too instead of adding a new line.

    Probably need to clean your profile then. Sounds like you have something corrupted in your profile.

  • Yes, please!


    Make it with all of the features and functions of a modern yet fully mature browser too while you are at it but without all of the bugs and indifferent developers.

    And we want it now!

    Please. 😃
