Snapshot 1.0.418.3 - Focusing on individual requirements, not statistics

  • bookmark in bookmark bar folder still need right click context menu

  • You can configure the cache directory using command line options. I've set up a ramdisk-drive (as V:) and added the following to my Vivaldi-shortcut:
    –disk-cache-dir="v:\cache" --disk-cache-size=10485760
    This limits the cache to 10MB and puts it on drive V:. I don't like disk-cache all too much and especially with a SSD it might be advantageous not to write the cache to the semi permanent storage.

  • Thanks for this snapshot!

    I have a question about an old Opera feature:

    Will Vivaldi get follower tabs, like old Opera had? I have not heard much about it.

  • When adding a Speed Dial, please make it so the URL field accept URLs without the http:// prefix.
    Also would love if it supported "middle click scroll" on Linux.

  • Vivaldi Team

    You can do that by Ctrl+click (or Cmd+click on Mac). But you want this by just using the mouse?

  • Well i have retired bookmarks bar but i can only fit 6 speed dials on 1024x768 resolution, with new Opera 36 i can do almost 16 speed dials that counts disabling search box also with advanced options. Can you make speed dials smaller and in 16:9 format that would be great, thanks. πŸ™‚

  • If you can allow resizing of tiled tabs, that will good enough IMO. It's already pretty useful for the most common scenarios, two tabs tiled vertically to save space, or the same tab in two horizontally tiled panels

  • Vivaldi Team

    Yes, that would be another step.


  • Vivaldi Team

    Performance is clearly high on our list. This works fine for most already, but we will continue to improve everywhere possible until it meets your requirements and then some.


  • What I really miss is search autocomplete. Any plans for that?

  • Moderator

    Instead of clicking the mouse button SX uses the middle mouse button, so you're able to use only the mouse.

  • Hi there and well done with the continuous improvement.
    Two annoying things I noticed though with the last preview and this one:

    • On a lot of site you don't have the cursor when you want to write things down. Give a try, it's a browser search engine (typo), try to write something in the search field. It used to do it with youtube for example but this snapshot got rid of the problem.
    • I cannot mute my tabs anymore. When I mouse over them, the little "sound button" showing there is music on that particular website (example: soundcloud) disappears.

  • We have added support for Ctrl, Shift and Middle click on bookmarks bar items

    Oh boy! I asked about this a while ago! Thank you!

  • Yes, this would be awesome!

  • Oh my! How could I miss that!
    Thank you knoelli for pointing me in the right direction.

    That's what keeps me coming here for more. There are very knowledgeable people around, willing to help and expose new ideas. Thank you again.

  • Thank you, folks!

    Today, the "Remember me" checkbox remembered me. Yay! πŸ™‚

    The 'Enter' key closes the editor when adding or editing a Bookmark description and the Up/Down Arrow keys don't move the cursor.

    The Downloads Panel list sorting needs some work:-

    Windows 7 x64 | Vivaldi x64

  • Gee… just gets better and better. I'm permanently over to Viv now. Each build seems faster, more stable and bugs taken care of good work. Thanks

    Previous build: I had some problems with dropdown NOT asking to save passwords and sometime filling them in don't know about this build yet. Sill looking for master password for password file I surmise that file is encrypted. Thanks

  • In light of this open and refreshing spirit at Vivaldi ;), what is the best way for me to request a feature?

  • I wish to disable the loading animation in the adress bar. That would be great. πŸ™‚

  • Great to see that the Vivaldi management understood why the real Opera was so beloved among power users.

    The only thing i'm still missing from that time: click on tab to minimize. That MRU cycling via mouse click is really burned into my brain but sadly not supported by Vivaldi yet πŸ™‚
