Improved Address Bar Search
Right now vivaldi does pretend everything with a dot in the address bar is a website.
some.group.classin the address bar does load a webpage instead of search.
A workaround is to add the search engine nickname in front of it like
g some.group.classor using the search box but if you are familiar with chrome, opera.. address bar you don't think about it until you see the error page which gets annoying.

I do agree that the handling of domain names is somewhat borked.
I have seen some people make the claim that as far as naming conventions go, anything in the form
(\w+.)+\w+is a valid domain, but that's simply not useful for anyone who frequently has to search api docs.
Ideally vivaldi should search for a term if the supposed TLD is not something from https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Internet_top-level_domains though there are so many I would be afraid of some performance dips as a result.
