Snapshot (126.96.36.199) Updated tiling and tons of polish
Hey all, Things have been very busy after a few days of Easter vacation. We are getting close to another TP and we are spending a lot of time on bugs and polish. We have made some adjustments to Tab Stack Tiling, you now have a Tile icon in the status bar so you can tile Tab Stacks and selected tabs from there. We have also added an “unread” tab indicator for background tabs.Keyboard shortcuts continue to get attention and we have fixed a couple of annoying bugs there, for example the bug where shortcuts wouldn't work on error pages. Also Vivaldi will not send you back in history when you use CTRL + left arrow in text fields now. Please note that if you installed Vivaldi as standalone and auto-update to this latest build, in some cases, you may not have access to your previous session, history etc after the update. If that happens, you can simply delete newly created User Data folder in your install directory, and rename your Profile folder to User Data. https://vivaldi.net/en-US/blogs/teamblog/item/22-snapshot-1-0-151-7-updated-tiling-and-tons-of-polish //Christian - Vivaldi Technologies

vivaldi://bookmarks forwards to the default Chrome bookmark manager (chrome-extension://eemcgdkfndhakfknompkggombfjjjeno/main.html) and previously allowed easier, more responsive viewing of bookmarks and somewhat easier editing than Vivaldi's current implementation. (See this post and following in this thread.)
But as of v188.8.131.52 the page is no longer populated with existing bookmarks. I'm looking forward to when the Vivaldi Bookmark Manager is more feature-rich, polished, and snappy, but in the mean time, as dovernh and Steffi have already mentioned elsewhere, it would be very nice to have the vivaldi://bookmarks functionality restored.
The Chrome bookmark manager was available in TP1 and (I think) a couple snapshots after, but it lost functionality some releases after that, and the functionality didn't return until version 184.108.40.206. Now we've lost it again in this version. I'd expect it will return again in a future version, and hopefully the fact it keeps losing functionality means the devs are working on bookmark organization.
Indeed I consider any diversion from the standard chromium "features" a good news.
