Snapshot 1.0.418.3 - Focusing on individual requirements, not statistics

  • For me I can't even think about using vivaldi as primary until it has sync 😞

    I'm sure they're working hard on it though and will definitely be considering switching once it has it.

  • Volcano smoke is highly dangerous, and you can't breathe it in or you will be severely injured.

  • You have got to be joking 🙂

  • Could we get a list of commandline options in the help menu?

  • Sadly most software companies seem to set "the average" at entry level and forget that people might eventually learn a thing or two and such might want to have even more of the good stuff. While I love it if a thing is usable out of the box, I love it even more if there is something like a learning curve that allows me to go to the next level, after I got comfortable with the entry level and want to do more.

    PS: I've always wondered if the ¼ of tose average 2¼ children means that the average family shares one child with 3 other families. I wonder how that child feels …
    Just kidding.

  • Ayespy, couldn't you throw in a simple workaround for now that would allow people to upload their whole Vivaldi config/data to something like googledrive?

  • After the upgrade and start of vivaldi (which took 2 tries - crashed between) there was no such field.
    changing to english & restarting there was.
    When changing back "Nächste Seite" had appeared with the shortcut i entered.

  • Let's do a browser like IE.. Then we are really special!

  • THIS!

  • They are for sure but for now we have to live with the tab bar context menu to detach a tab into a new window. Just right-click on the tab you want to detach and you will see it. Additionally you can re-attach the tab to any open Vivaldi window - which is not that bad at all.

  • Blah don't do it! Those gestures caused so many problems for me!!!

  • Is there a way to clear the spatial navigation cursor?

  • Lol, I LOVE how you just compared Vivaldi and O12 to Pokemon! :lol:

    Yes, there are tons of features that I'm looking forward to, and I know a bunch aren't going to make it for the stable release. I think it's okay, because I'm hoping they'll come soon after, and Vivaldi is still going straight to development for the next version after finishing up with version 1.0. Whether it's 1.1 or 2.0, they'll go straight into it with new features I guess.

    What sort of features are you looking forward to that you would like to see in the near future?

    I guess the average user thing is almost arbitrary to a degree. I find Chrome super dumbed down compared to everything, and I don't even see why even average users would prefer that. I think browsers that make themselves more useful are also useful for casual use as well. I was once a user of just Chrome and Firefox before finding out about new Opera and then Vivaldi. When I first found out about Vivaldi, I found things about the browser that I had no idea I wanted, and so I think average users want something that's out of their way yes, but also something that's useful, not super dumbed down and inefficient, like what Google is trying to do. I think tons of people will try Vivaldi and never know they needed it. We just have to make them try it.

  • Just as a workaround for your video-cursor-issue (in Youtube) until it is fixed: After I switch to fullscreen I wait until the video controls overlay disappears and then I move the cursor a tiny bit. That way it disappears. Occasionally the video controls are displayed again at that moment but that's ok since they'll vanish a short time after anyway. [Works for me: Vivaldi 1.0.418.3 32bit, Win10 64bit]

  • Just press [Esc].

  • Ah, well in that case, O12 and Vivaldi have session management, so I guess session management + tab stacking in O12 is a little more useful than sticking sessions in tab groups, but I haven't used it that way.

  • fpqc,

    You can do that now with some of the basic user files but you have to be careful. The directory structure and the filenames/formats may change and one way to wreak havoc is to sync/replace new files and directories with old files and directories.

    Vivaldi is always writing something to disk so while it might be fun to watch someone else do it, putting the User directory in Googledrive, Onedrive, or Dropbox is not a good idea. :shock:

  • Sure, there is that, it's all nice, still can be cumbersome if you have to do it a lot 🙂 Also probably not that widely known, dragging a tab out seems to be then thing these days, and indeed, it is a lot more handy.
    Nice pointing out the optional route though.

  • Thanks a bunch for your hard work and efford to bring us the browser we all want and need. Some tweaks and fixes here and there and I will start telling everybody I know to install and use it. 🙂

    Two tiny issues I have this time:

    • I want to have the possibility to get a tab out of a tab stack. If it's possible I haven't found the way to do it. I can only close that tab or break up the stack completely.
    • Zoom in web panels: I have a global page zoom of 160%. The web panels show the content with the standard zoom level of 100%. I would be happy if I had the possibility to control that.

    Thanks and happy coding! 🙂
