Vivaldi 2.2: Focus on details


  • Moderator

    @ROTFL FULL ACK! 👽



  • Poor the Home button. 😆
    While entering any site, all colors (tabs and address bar) going grey and then changes to an accent color. It does not happen when "Accent Color.." in the Settings is turned off. Bug?



  • Really nice one! I'm Vivappy! 🤗



  • One of the best updates I've ever read for Vivaldi 🙂 ... I'm quite sad I don't use it since I don't like the technology it's built on top (Chromium + Node + React = a very ugly nightmare for me 😵 ), but I'm happy to see that it exists 😃

    However there's an error in the article:

    Time travel with a middle-click

    The Address toolbar also gained a powerful new feature. Long-click on one of the history navigation buttons (e.g. Back or Forward) to bring up the sub-menu, then middle-click an entry to open it in a new tab.

    No other browser makes it so easy for you to travel quickly through your timeline, without the need to leave the page you are currently viewing.

    I use Firefox actually, and it works exactly as you described here 🤓

    However, congrats for your release 🙂

    Unless I'm mistaken, Vivaldi just uses chromium and react. It doesn't need to use node as chromium already has a javascript engine within it.

    Nope... Vivadi uses node.js too ... however it isn't the point ... simply I don't like a browser built with web (inefficient) technologies, and I don't like Chromium itself (and I like "file based" software)... but It's only a personal taste, so good for all the people who love it 🙂



  • @Engelium True. With JS it's certainly never going to be as fast as a totally native UI.

    For my use though I quite like being able to change Vivaldi "on the fly", which is only possible due to the dynamic nature of writing it using HTML & JS.



  • I don't get it. Time travel with a "middle-click" is either wrong or misleading, unless here "middle click" is not meaning middle mouse button (that is, the mouse wheel, for me) but then I don't get what it means
    While "Long-click on one of the history navigation buttons (e.g. Back or Forward) to bring up the sub-menu," doesn't even specify right or left click.
    I had to split this hair in 4 because I was actually trying keeping middle mouse clicked on back arrow while the list appears keeping left mouse button clicked, or simply clicking right mouse button.

  • @iAN-CooG Middle click (mousewheel) opens history forward or backward in a new tab. If you use the middle click the menu won't appear.



  • Congratulations for this great year which ends with this great release. 👍

    I hope you will perform well too on mobiles in 2019. 😉



  • Love it! Although one minor thing: I think the setting to show the search field on Start Page should appear in the Start Page settings, not just the Search settings



  • @tanamraam3714: or even both while at it? it's a search setting, that makes a search field appear in the start page. (Insert Inception meme here)



  • Thank you, and congratulations for this release.

    It's been very stable so far and all the new features are welcome.

    Btw. I couldn't help but notice the main image of this post: are we going to get new icons soon because I see the shape of the "Home" button has changed a little; the door is rounder as well as the little arrowhead of the "Refresh" button?



  • Perfect!! 😍



  • Hopefully M3 in 2019



  • Thanks for all that you do! As a relatively new user I've been delighted to continue to find ways to better meet my specific needs. However, there's one REALLY big customization you're missing which is the ability to toggle rendering engines. With the recent demise of Edge's, using Firefox's engine becomes even more critical for the sake of protecting an open web not ruled by any one company. I'm looking forward to seeing that added to my settings page soon. 😉



  • "Add option to disable Google DNS (used to help resolve navigation errors)"

    Otherwise known as "Use a Google DNS Service to Help Resolve Navigation Errors" (as it reads in Settings).

    What is the problem this is trying to solve, exactly? Does anyone know? I wasn't aware that Google DNS was ever used unless you've set it in your OS or your router. This seems to imply that Chromium (and thus Vivaldi) was using it until now, so now there's an option not to use it. That doesn't sound right at all. And what Navigation Errors, and why would using Google DNS be causing them? Plenty of people use Google DNS as their default DNS. I haven't heard of Navigation Errors (and by that, I assume you're talking about the inability to load some sites).



  • Wow!! These are wonderful additions. I love it

    It will not happen. Never say "Never," but the Vivaldi Team is way too small to maintain more than one rendering engine.
