Just downloaded 1.94.1008.21



  • Yeah! That's what the bug report I attempted told me at the bottom of the page. But About this Vivaldi says 1.13.1008.21 and that is what I downloaded from this site. New user here trying to familiarize and adjust to this site will settle down when the dizzy goes away. Your product vision is great. Safari and Firefox gotta take back seats.
    Am I allowed to report bugs? A Redirect bug is in the bookmarks bar folder > News > Examiner. It takes Vivaldi to a bad site www.axs.com. Folder is part of .dmg download. https://mxtoolbox.com/domain/www.axs.com/

    Imac with ElCapitan 10.11.6

    @echosyn The public version number is 1.13. The user agent number exposed to websites is 1.94. It was necessary for Vivaldi developers to "spoof" their own browser user agent because any number of websites either warned the browser was out of date, or blocked it altogether, because they don't understand versioning, and think it follows mathematical rules of notation and think 1.10 is .8 LESS than 1.9 and they don't want an outdated (read: "insecure") browser used on their web sites.



  • Thank you for clarifying that. This retired industrial electrician is learning your language a bit at a time.



  • @echosyn Just 7 more bits to go, then you'll have really taken a nice byte out of your new learning. ;-)



  • @ayespy To be fair, not even Vivaldi is good at ordering their browser versions: https://vivaldi.com/source/
    How can we expect websites to do any better? Vivaldi is a niche browser, therefore it has to adapt when such problems arise, which it did. The better variant would be to forego the whole 1.10/1.11 thing and just go from the 1.9 to 2.0. But we have discussed this extensively already.

    The up side is that you good folks done went an' made a helluva browser. I just finished a 4 hour romp across the www as a regular user and Vivaldi did all chores with polish. Thanks.
