    You've heard wrong.

    (again, I missed the announcement about 67)

    There has not been an announcement about 67. But it would be wrong to assume that 1.16 will be on 65, or even 66.

    Because it's not two to six weeks behind anymore? Even at this early stage (if 1.16 were to ship today), let alone when it's roughly expected to ship.

    As far as I'd heard, 1.16 will have 65. I see that @iANCooG mentions that it will end up with 67 (due May 29), skipping two releases and maybe getting things back on track. If that comes to pass, great.

    1.16 will probably be available in the July time-frame if the recent pattern holds. Possibly August.

    Chrome 65 was released on MAR 6.

    Now do you understand my puzzlement why we're still testing 65 on MAY 13? By the time it rolls out in July, it would be about 16 weeks behind (again, I missed the announcement about 67).

    BTW, to answer the general question: I never said this was the most important thing. It's still an important thing to get newer versions of Chromium into test versions sooner rather than later. And we were/are trending so far into a "later" extreme that I thought it was worth bringing up.

    And? What exactly is it you think you will gain by having a Vivaldi version based on Chromium 66 or 67? Is there a new feature that you need? If so, what is it? Are there websites that will not render properly on anything less than Chromium 66 that you use on a regular basis? Help us to understand what it is you hope to get out of a Vivaldi using Chromium 66 or 67, and then maybe we can give you a better answer. So far, what I'm hearing you say is basically, "it's newer, so it must be better," which is not the most sound of positions to stake out. What am I, and/or the others, missing?

    I miss that old dark theme too + in my case it doesn't get accents from the websites i am using by default and had to create the old theme based on it and enable those switches.
    I wonder why this message shows as deleted.
