Snapshot 188.8.131.52 - A cleaner Speed Dial and lots of fixes!
Hi y'all, Before we dive right into some of the changes made in this week’s snapshot build, we thought we would spend a little bit time explaining our plan going forward. As our development continues on toward beta, we have added quite a few new features and made some significant changes to our products over the last two months, since TP3. Because many people around the world download Vivaldi browser TP3, a build available for public download from vivaldi.com, we thought it would be a good idea to release the another newer Technical preview based on the current snapshot code. As preparation for TP4, this snapshot focuses on mainly bug fixes, but sneaked in a few more customization options on Speed Dial!

Christian – Just a quick comment since I just downloaded this latest snapshot. Please keep up the great work!
You gals and guys have really jumped on some of the latest bugs that I had run into. Thanks to all of you. My memory usage is still very low on a Win 7 x64 machine with 16 gb of RAM. Plus I restarted Vivaldi several times and it is opening very fast. I installed the Chrome extension - Lazy Tabs - that prevents tabs from being loaded on restarts until they are needed and I think this has a lot to do with the speed on reopening. I will check and edit this post if that is correct. Actually, the Chrome extensions I had been using to increase speed on starting Vivaldi and the memory usage have been unchecked. These are Lazy Tabs and One Tab. So these fixes are apparently built-in now. WOW!!!
Also, the UI Zoom in the Settings Menu has been fixed so that is is remembered on all sites.
Great work and pass on my thanks to the whole development team.
