  • Thanks!
    Day by day it gets better.
    Congratulations!



  • Thank you for the awesome update. Would you please integrate a function to assign a custom image to the speed dial entries? Thanks ;)
    Have a nice weekend. You guys deserved it.

    Greetings from Germany :)

    @kenedz: changed to the right translation :) should be fine with the next update.

    Thanks for noticing. It's a string inherited from Chromium. Those strings still need some check and it's still work in progress as it's new for devs and translators.

    @ahoj1234: Some more fixes made. :wink:
    @kenedz: Thanks for reporting. Also you can use the separate thread for this (in the future) here: https://forum.vivaldi.net/topic/12451/překlad/17
    Thanks!



  • Why does the address bar still auto completes to some bookmark even though it has been ticked off? It should show the base address first IMO.



  • Unbelievable



  • You guys are my #1 browser these days. Starting to remind me of old Opera again. I know you can't use the presto engine. Understandable since Chromium works well. The browser doesn't feel like Chrome. I love it.

    The moment you guys get that Mail client working, I'll be one happy-ass camper. I would ask if you could implement RSS support, but I realize this is 2017 and many websites don't use it anymore.

    Keep up the good work, guys!

    vivaldi://newtab shows Google page (VB-3112)
    I believe this fix vim keys extensions chrome://newtab problem.

    [Settings] Allow disabling of Widevine (VB-26423)
    [Settings] Allow disabling of Flash (VB-24611)
    [Settings] Allow disabling of the internal PDF viewer (VB-24617)

    Interesting.



  • [Settings] Allow disabling of Widevine (VB-26423)

    For just a millisecond when I saw these I thought the next line was going to mention "HTML5." Hopefully Google gets around to doing that too so it can be surfaced in Vivaldi. Surely they realize by now that it's just as big an autoplay problem as Flash was. There is an old extension that kinda-sorta helps in the meantime.

    vivaldi://newtab shows Google page (VB-3112)

    Now it seems to do nothing. Is it supposed to open a Start page?



  • @serpher: We're currently looking into improving this behavior. Stay tuned. :)

    [Bookmarks] Always show details in the panel (VB-23752)
    Ugh... I need to get used to this.


  • Vivaldi Translator

    @dleon: Nice. Stupid question: I cannot find the plugin page anymore. vivaldi://plugins does not work either. Is it gone?


  • Vivaldi Translator

    @SteveKong
    That vivaldi://plugins was gone.
    Chromium/Chrome kick out chrome://plugins. So, all Chromium based browser effected.

    That picture of mine from Vivaldi settings page, tab "Webpage".
    I did heard from around here, Vivaldi devs want to bring back those things.

    Those Flash settings doesn't really matter though. It will still be available in any Chromium/Chrome "Site Settings" for years to come.



  • @SteveKong yes, chrome removed that page, Vivaldi restored the ability to disable them in the settings from this snapshot (Settings/Webpages/Plugins)

    Great, I'll leave a point that in my opinion Vivaldi does not want to be exactly the adblock, I saw that there is a project about it but it is forgotten.

    Thumbnails for the speed dial bookmarks! Interesting... someone was asking for bookmark thumbnails.



  • Since a few Versions I can't close Vivaldi via ALT+F4. I can't assign that shortcut, because the settings window will get closed...

    What about the update dialog. None of the buttons can be activated via space bar... some weird behavior here...
