Thanks for the great in-page search features!



  • I must say, there were very few things going on my nerves in the old Opera (12-). One of them was less-than-perfect in-page search, where you had to input the exact string of characters to search for. Vivaldi now has it more fuzzy-like, so if for example I search for 'citys', it will find both 'citys' and 'city's'. This might not seem like a big deal to the English speakers, but for all the others it's very convenient, since it also means that, if I look for a character like 'c', it will also find its alternatives, like 'ć' and 'č'. Very useful! There's of course still some space for improving the in-page search, but we should also give credit where credit is due :) Also, kudos for improving double-click on text. In Opera, certain interpunction (like apostrophe or dash) would break the selection. Now if I double-click on 'city's', it gets selected completely, including the 's suffix. These two minor tweaks make my browser usage more convenient tenfold.

    I doubt if Vivaldi deserve any kudos at all for this. It probably come free by using the Chrome rendering engine.



  • As far as I've seen, none of the other WebKit-based browsers (Chrome, Chromium, Opera, Midori) have this feature.
