Snapshot 1.0.167.2\. Better keyboard-shortcut editing and user statistics.


  • Vivaldi Team

    Hi, Last week was busy with TP3 launch. We are happy to see we have gotten one step closer to Beta :) We are starting a new week with another snapshot. This week, we have polished keyboard shortcut settings. It’s now easier to change shortcuts and you can have more than one shortcuts per action. To be able to serve you, our users and friends, in the best possible way, we need to know a little about you. We need to know how many you are, what HW/OS you have and where in the world and which language you use. This helps us make the right priorities on our resources. Starting with this build, Vivaldi will connect with our servers for this purpose only once per day. We do not collect any usage data. This is only for us to have a general feel about our overall user base. So, on first run Vivaldi generates a unique ID for your installation. Then, every 24 hours, your browser, if running, will send via https, the following info: The unique user ID Browser user agent CPU architecture Screen Resolution Accept Language https://vivaldi.net/en-US/blogs/teamblog/item/28-snapshot-1-0-167-2-better-keyboard-shortcut-editing-and-user-statistics //Christian - Vivaldi Technologies.



  • Since the last update a few days ago, the browser has gotten very slow and prone to crash. Is it just me?

    Sometimes it takes several minutes for a page to load after clicking on a link, and sometimes the dead bird icon shows up. This did not happen before Snapshot 1.0.167.2.

    also: feature request – there should be a way to clean up cache, DOM data, Flash cache, etc. easily, without having to do it manually in BASH.

    Isn't this the same "phone home" technology that bothered so many people using Chrome? Could this be a one time operation instead of once a day? Or a simple survey?
