Snapshot 1.0.418.3 - Focusing on individual requirements, not statistics



  • Thank you very much Vivaldi team ❤

    I used to be a Opera user until they made the switch to chromium and killed off Presto (which was my favourite engine).
    As a Tux user I waited for over a year while mac and Windows got their fixes and builds.
    One their blog I asked if "Linux" support was dropped (got a hostile response from a few die-hard Opera users) 😛

    Anyway thanks for being transparent with us Tux users and keep up the brilliant work 🙂



  • Thanks for the fixes guys! And for your message of serving a better browser for the power user. I'll continue to promote Vivaldi to dissafected Firefox users who are unsatisfied with the way things are going with Firefox.

    And to be clear, I think that Chrome and Firefox aren't even serving average users that well to begin with. Opera 12 seems just as "easy" to use as any browser. Vivaldi seems just as easy to use as any other browser, and looks nicer too(Chrome is very ugly and outdated looking, IMO).

    I also think that you don't NEED to compromise on power users at all just to serve average users, and vice versa. I think Vivaldi and Opera 12 have always struck that perfect best of both worlds deal with users, especially Vivaldi.

    In Vivaldi, the UI looks super clean and neat and modern, but delve in further and find that power users will find their goldmine there to be used.

    I know Vivaldi hasn't implemented everything I want, and I've probably been kind of annoying about it, lol, but I'm sure they remember those things(tab cycling like O12, mouse cursor appears in fullscreen videos, etc.), but they're on their way to getting to the Final release, so they're focusing on making Vivaldi stable to use before adding many new features.

    I don't know if that means there won't really be many new features before the final, but so far we're looking at what'll shape up to be a great browser for the final, and I can't wait to see what features come after!



  • Yes, I have to echo the sentiment. In terms of the feedback loop, it's close to the polar opposite of what giant Google does with Chrome, where you get what you get and it feels mostly like feedback is ejected into space.

    BTW, a feature upgrade for the comment section here might be coloring the usernames of Vivaldi personnel so that their comments/answers jump out.



  • Personally, I tried out tab grouping in Pale Moon just for curiosity, and found that tab stacking in O12 and Vivaldi to be way better. It does the exact same thing as Tab Groups, but it's just easier to use. In Pale Moon, I was scratching my head for a few minutes trying to find where the rest of my tabs in the tab group went. Not the easiest thing to learn. It does the same thing as Vivaldi, only harder, less intuitive, and less efficient.



  • I could write a love letter with a thousand pages and it would still not be enough to describe how much I appreciate your decision!

    Instead, I'll play the illiterate and say "i wuv u!"

    Dziękuję. Doceniam waszą pracę.
    48 poprawek. Tak trzymać. 🙂

    Błędy i sugestie opisałem w kilku postach na twitterze.
    Część z nich fajnie byłoby zobaczyć w 1.0

    Pozdrawiam 🙂



  • Right. Does anyone know if the server farm is fully set up yet?



  • Thanks Jon! I do notice some performance improvements needed, like the panel toggling animation, Quick Commands lag, going to a different tab while new tab is loading, adding a new tab lag, and so on. 🙂

    To espen:
    A list of keyboard shortcuts is.
    A list of mouse gestures is.
    Missing a list of connection keys with touchpad (mouse) – [eg. "Ctrl + touchpad"] etc

    Password in settings/prefenences should be "**********"



  • Ok.. Found it.
    It was not visible when using german language,
    Now setting to english it is.
    Opend a bug for that.

    edit: setting a shortcut for fast forward and changing lanuage back to german made it appear. strange

    Yes it does work as you thought, there is everything inside it, and our little hands are busy sifting through it to find a gem 🙂
    How do you expect that there have been more than 13600 bug reports 😛



  • Almost perfect… only missing:

    • Shortcut for individual pages in speed dial (Ctrl+1, Ctrl+2, etc.) like Opera 12
    • Middel click in empty space of tabbar open a new tab.


  • Opera 12 and Vivaldi are like Pokemon games.: so easy to get into and understand its mechanics that anyone can use/play without any headache, but more experienced users/players will find a lot of depth the further they dwell into the mechanics!

    I too have been annoying when requesting features, and it's clear I won't be seeing most of my wanted features before Stable 1 releases. But that's alright, I know Vivaldi is listening, and eventually I will have those functions. For now, they already provide much more than all the current browsers out there can put out together, and that makes Vivaldi the best! And it's not even stable yet!

    Remember, Firefox: it's exactly because Opera kept stripping its browser of very feature that made it unique that almost all its users migrated to Vivaldi! Soon you'll have no average user to cater to anymore!



  • As I said, people used tab grouping as session management and not as tab management, so comparing tab grouping and tab stacking doesn't make too much sense.



  • Nice! 😃

    • CBS.com maximized option for videos fixed.
    • .64bit set as default on Windows 10 works just like any other (was an issue that i had not previously reported).
      But, most of all, i liked Ruari's post about not cutting back on features like Firefox and Opera have. Yes! Where's that thumbs up emoticon? 😎


  • You really should get into that "drag tab to detach it as a new window" business, seems to be very longed after feature and frankly, very handy. 🙂
    Quite sure you're already pondering about it, though.



  • Netflix is not working at all since last 3 snapshots. Now it's says is needed a browser like traditional ones (IE, Chrome, Opera….)



  • Please add ''search with…'' :roll:



  • Why not just make browser like Firefox? Fx is very polished, lot of great functions.



  • Sure that you just didn't see "Nächste Seite" as meaning "Fast Forward"?
    Other than that:
    I am still fighting with that translation, maybe I'll change it if i get the right idea - but "Schnellvorlauf" did not sound right to my co-translator and me, so we tried a different approach …
