Support for Retina Display on Macs
I'm not entirely sure whether this is a bug, or if it's just not supported. Currently, any favicon appear to be very blurry in a retina-display Mac, unlike in other browsers.
@altcode Probably neither. Favicons are usually only 16x16 pixels so any enlarged favicon is going to be blurry.
I don't know if it's possible for sites to provide large icons for HiRes displays.

@pesala It is. I've verified it by using other browsers, and the favicons are not blurry most of the time.
@pesala I've added screenshots to show this.

People should really fix this! It feels terrible to look at these blurry favicons in the tab bar

This is an actual bug - and a regression to be honest. I believe Vivaldi 1.11 it used to work, it's been a long time since the high-DPI favicons era.
I opened an issue about it: VB-33047
The date? September 22nd 2017

If you add a site as a sidebar panel, it shows a clear icon. The bookmarks bar also shows a clear icon. The browser can do it, but it's not pulling the retina ones on tabs.

@pesala not really, many icon are SVG
This is planned but not started. I agree it would be a good enhancement.

@helmers I've come to realize that the higher resolution favicons are already used in almost every other aspect of the browser. From the bookmark panel, the bookmark menu, most web panels, the bookmark bar, and even hibernated tabs! It is only the active tabs that do not use the higher resolution favicons. Why is that?

This issue has been fixed with the latest Snapshot! 😆
So I finally got a chance to try the snapshots, and I'm happy to say that the favicons are no longer blurry mostly everywhere. The only exceptions to this are web panel favicons, which are still blurry and do not appear to use the higher resolution favicon like tabs, as well as some Vivaldi urls, such as vivaldi://extensions or vivaldi://downloads
After a more thorough look, I realised that hibernated tabs no longer show a higher res favicon, which they currently do on the stable version.
Closed tabs in the windows panel appear blurry after restarting the browser, but they do not appear blurry when viewed from the trash can icon on the top right.
