Vivaldi powers up the Start Page and adds docked Dev Tools

  • Excellent! There is no more reason why I should use Opera instead of Vivaldi for website development.

  • @jonmc: I'm glad you like them! And it's great to get some recognition from the Vivaldi team!

  • @cqoicebordel: Well, the original idea came out from JuniorSilva30's thread he created where he shared some of his thumbs, and so I shared a bunch of mine on there as well. Maybe a really good idea, which I've had on my mind, is to have a dedicated page where people upload their SD thumbnails in a kind of app store like UI, where we can all check them out, download the ones we want. And the information can be seen on the SD thumbnail packs for the name of it, the user/creator's name, etc. and we can even give ratings if we want. That would be pretty cool 🙂

  • Tree-style tabs, sync, and mobile version, and I'll never look at Firefox again!

    Firefox, Firefox, Firefox... hmmm, that name seems sort of vaguely familiar, from a long time ago in a universe far away, but i can't remember exactly... i wonder what a Firefox is... does it have something to do with that interwebby thing i've heard about? 😉

  • Please change the white color of the transition page when first entering the URL because its brightness will make be blind very soon! . . Other features of Vivaldi is fine and it is only choice that I made. Many thanks.

    @vivald777 No problem here, both preview popup and on tabs are working and don't disappear on hover. Are you using some custom CSS or custom JS on the interface?

  • Does anyone else have problems with video since the new version? Vivaldi has always had issues with HTML5 videos on my machine (Windows 7 64bit), i.e. refusing to load them when they get too big, but it's suddenly a lot worse. Browsing e.g. reddit or instagram or imgur, a handful of videos will load fine, until one doesn't (it will only play a second or so, and then stop) and then none will. If I restart Vivaldi, the video will play fine (and the next one, and the next one, until another one decides enough is enough and another restart is in order).

    (Also, I was only able to leave this message via the old Opera. Vivaldi would pretend I wasn't logged in, reloading this page every time I clicked on "login" below the text box.)

  • Is the download sorting by date (either one) not supposed to reverse sort them so that the newest is on top? Here, it puts the oldest on top, which doesn't make sense, because soon what's new will be out of sight. I'm probably missing something.

  • After setting custom image for SD, everything is fine until original image is deleted, then it disappears, vivaldi should back up those images to internal folder or something.

  • @crixtian06:
    "I've been using Vivaldi since the past year, and i love it! it's a great browser with really cool features, and keeps improving with each update like this one, but the support it's now suspended for linux-32bit 😢"

    Very sad indeed. With the availability of 1.10 snapshot(s) for linux 32-bit, this came as an unpleasant surprise to me. But I understand that it has to do with Google Chrome having dropped Linux 32-bit support (some time ago already) and that code is apparently used in Vivaldi. However, Chromium is still actively developed for linux 32-bit, so why not use this as a base? Maybe it is just too much effort to maintain a browser for all platforms.

  • Great work. Would be amazing to be able to set the address bar to hide..and automatically reappear when opening a new tab, so it can be instantly typed into. And hide upon loading the page. AND appear if there is a notification in an extension.
    THAT would be unprecedented and make for an incredibly smooth clean workflow!

  • I love that we can now use gifs on the start page.

  • Docked Dev tools, Chromium 59, + more! I'm a happy camper. Thank you!

    @Marimba Not only GIF images, also APNG.


  • @cqoicebordel: How can I switch from the 32 bit version to the 64 bit version?

  • @Marimba

    Assuming you are on a 64-bit version of Windows: uninstall your current (32-bit) version of Vivaldi (using the regular Windows uninstaller), but do not uninstall 'profile/settings'.
    Download and install the 64-bit version, and your new installation will use your 'old' settings/profile.

  • @aronand: For some time now (ever since themes were added) I think the dark theme has the wrong default accent - it's red, but it should be black or something similar, and only red if it inherits from page.


  • Great!!
    For this stable version, i have a little problem; Vivaldi browser crash at open hootsuite or tweetdeck in a new special window (apps)

    Vivaldi: 1.10.867.38 (Stable channel) (64 bits)
    Revisión: 903e7027e99bd6e9b99f163ac6caf4e491a8a1b1
    Sistema operativo: Linux
    JavaScript: V8

    Thank for this new stable version. Vivaldi is my browser for all!!

  • @marimba: Just install the 64-bit version over the 32-bit version. The profile will be kept.
