Vivaldi 2.2: Focus on details



  • "[Panels] Panels are hard to resize (VB-39870)" - for a moment I thought the panels individual ZOOM was adressed by this. But alas, it's just the resizing by vertical separator. Is all hope lost? 🙂



  • Saving selected tabs as a named session is incredibly useful. Thanks! But the instructions were a bit garbled. Here's an edit.

    1. Select the tabs you’d like to include using Ctrl/⌘/Shift Left-click
    2. Then Right-click on any of the highlighted tabs to open the context menu
    3. Select “Save Selected Tabs as Session” and enter your chosen name in the box
    4. Click Save


  • @gwen-dragon: You're reading this wrong. The PIP API provided via JavaScript allows you to have extra buttons to PIP a HTML5 video element. Standard HTML5 video elements -- and this is also true on Chrome/Chromium -- which have no modifications can be PIP'd from the right-click menu.



  • @jplissken: This works with any site using HTML5 videos, FYI -- and that's pretty much every site these days. Of course, there are various HTML5 players that have custom context menus, but I would imagine -- once PIP has been around for a while -- the option will eventually behind to appear for these.



  • @ayespy: Vivaldi's calls its new tabs bookmarks screen "Speed Dials". So yes, it very much is a thing.

    @electricduck Vivaldi calls any bookmark folder that you designate as a speed dial, "Speed Dial." There can be several of them. They are just a folder of bookmarks that are displayed a certain way. Unlike in Opera, Chrome, Firefox and other browsers, "Speed Dial" is not a separate and different entity from bookmarks. That's what I mean by it's not a "thing."

    You can select what page or site you wish to use as your new tab page. It may be Speed Dial, or your home page, or a blank page, or a page that is created and displayed by an extension. What Vivaldi calls Speed Dial is any folder of bookmarks displayed as a page of thumbnails. You don't even have to have a folder named Speed Dial. Similarly, you don't have to have a folder named "Bookmark Bar." You can select any folder to be displayed on the bookmark bar.



  • I'm guessing live streaming is different than HTML5 video (Even though it uses HTML5 for the video player) so that's why popout player doens't work there? (For example for Twitch.tv)

    so that's why popout player doens't work there (…) Twitch.tv

    Picture-in-Picture does not work with all streaming players. Chrome has the same issue.
