Link behavior change



  • While using Vivaldi I noticed that when I click on a link (1st) then while the link is still loading if I click on another link (2nd), Vivaldi never works for the 2nd link. No matter what I have to finish downloading the 1st link then go for the 2nd link which I find to be not quite inefficient. However, I'm not quite sure if it's a bug or a feature. Ideal behavior should be like in Opera 12, where it selects the last requested link. That is, while the 1st request was still being loaded if there is 2nd link request for the same tab, the browser should stop loading 1st request and activate loading the 2nd request. Similarly, if there is a 2nd (background tab) link request while the 1st link request is still active, the browser should open both links in their respective tabs.

    I'm not able to reproduce the behavior you're describing.

    If I click on a second link while the first is still loading the browsers start to load the second one immediately.

    I've seen this type of behavior, but if I restart the browser, it goes away. Sometimes as well, you might follow a link to a media-heavy page in Facebook and, when you are done, the Facebook page is no longer responsive. One must close the tab one was linked to, then close Facebook, and then if you open it again, everything works fine. Vivaldi has some glitch where it gets its attention stuck on loading something in a page, and it can't think of anything else.
