Update message (in Updater HTML window)

  • If you click a link in the Vivaldi update notification window, it opens the github site within that window, and github appears to recognise it as Internet Explorer :).


  • Most probably the updater is using windows APIs which are using IE dlls to connect to the internet.

    The Updater uses Windows system DLLs for the display of Vivaldi's HTML formatted changelog. Such module is often identified as Internet Explorer on many servers and websites.

  • That all makes sense. I suspect the updater window should open links in the main browser window though - otherwise there's no obvious way back to the list of changes the notifier window originally displayed...
