Snapshot 1.1.453.6 - Further tab closing options, improved dark UI and more import options


  • Vivaldi Team

    Today's highlights are further tab closing activation options, more work on our Dark UI, more import options and a fix for Vivaldi stealing focus under Windows. For the full list of improvements, see the changelog below.

    We are rapidly closing in on a final 1.1 release now, so let us know if you see any regressions in behaviour since the 1.0 final.

    See the full blog post here



  • We have also disabled NPAPI plugins for Vivaldi 1.1, now that the support present in Chromium has become too unreliable. PPAPI plugins and new HTML5 technologies should serve as suitable replacements going forward.

    So much for replacing opera with Vivaldi completely. :cry:

    Any way for users to manually re-enable? Or is this a "baked in" change?



  • still in the Polish version is translated "Paste and go" (Wklej i przejdź)



  • still a little slow start



  • Sorry, I'm not clear on this. I've seen the [Regression] tag multiple times before in changelogs and I always thought that it's a warning that something gets worse, but your wording makes it look like the [Regression] tag still denotes a bugfix. Which is right?


  • Vivaldi Team

    It denotes a bug fix for something that was recently broken.

    For example. If feature X worked and broke, when we refix it we write [regression] in from of the new fix.


  • Vivaldi Team

    All of the browsers are moving away from NPAPI. It is a deprecated technology. I don't think you will find many in the industry who like it. It is a pain to work with.



  • Re Ruari's comment: "running the snapshot and then downgrading to stable, could actually corrupt your profile" (in his post for the April 8, Snapshot 1.1.443.3) am I understanding this correctly:

    If we are on a Snapshot, 'downgrading' to an earlier numbered Stable version could be problematic.

    However, if we are on Snapshot, upgrading to a Stable that is a later release number would be okay?


  • Vivaldi Team

    Yes you will be able to upgrade from this to the future 1.1 stable. But I would not downgrade from this build to 1.0 stable.

    Best bet is standalone install of one of the versions of Vivaldi if you want both.



  • Aaah, okay, thanks. I've held off updating a few times before because of this, glad I'm wrong



  • Middle clicking in speeddial on thumbnails opens blank pages.



  • Excellent.

    Just wanted to make sure I did not need to un-install the Snapshot and do a clean install when/if moving to Stable…as long as moving to a more recent Stable.

    Thank you.



  • Confirmed here. Win 7 x64.



  • Great work as always guys!

    What I would like to see changed/added are some small things:
    1. Lose the gradient on extension buttons and instead of making it lighter, make it just a bit darker, it will serve the flat UI much better
    2. Paste & Go in toolbar search box as well as in any Search box on page
    3. Speed Dial refinement, with option to put in local image in thumbs or text based thumbnail (like in Opera 30+)
    3. I'd like to see the return of Go button



  • Add a mode of reading, like Firefox, or the former extension Evernote Cleary
    Vivaldi is now my default browser! Thank you for this wonderful browser!
    Looking forward to the email client! :D
    Speed Dial this perfect! :D

    Add a mode of reading, like Firefox, or the former extension Evernote Cleary - VB-15297



  • The flickering still happens when you toggle the panel in and out. It's been happening since many snapshots ago before the 1.0 final release. Will this get fixed for the 1.1 final release?



  • Thank you so much for this! :D :D
    Add "Right of current tab" in tab settings for a Close tab (VB-12674)



  • The same as in any other language. Sadly it can not yet be translated by the translators.



  • not working "vivaldi://settings/clearBrowserData"



  • Thanks guys. Video on czech server "stream.cz" is working again. You are great. :)
