Good effort and makes sense to use Vivaldi's native ability to change the color behind tabs/on address bar in more than one way.
But yet, the effect isn't really that dramatic – after all it's just the color of one bar that changes. What I would like to see is a dark theme that changes the foreground text/icon colors in sync with chroma/webpages – this would mimic the way it works on a keyboard and a mouse. And as far as I know one member made a custom modification to the browser, which uses the accent color on tab bar, address bar and panel container at the same time – which is a more immersive experience. Gonna look for that mod now ^^
Could it be added even when the theme doesn't change ?
I don't like to have the theme of the whole browser to change at each tab, to avoid being blinded. But having the hue lamps change around me is not blinding, since I don't look at them directly.
Having the possibility to changes the lamps (or razor chroma, to stay on topic), without changing the theme would be nice !
@cqoicebordel: It works with or without "Accent color from Active Page" enabled - when this is disabled, Chroma will use the Theme Accent Color (static, unless you schedule themes )
@jonmc: Yeah, that's my point. It's static. I would love to use the dynamic accent color in hue, while keeping my the static for Vivaldi theme.

This is great. It doesn't work though. My Razer refuses to change colours but Synapse says it's being controlled by Vivaldi.

Awesome! I should check out the Razer Chroma stuff. I have enabled Hue support in Vivaldi and issued a feature request some time ago, that I think private tabs (tabs in private windows) should not be followed by Hue. Wondering whether Vivaldi's Chroma integration follows private tabs? In any case, keep up the excellent work!

I own a Razer Black Widow Chroma Keyboard - in the Synapse software there are activated "Chroma apps" and Vivaldi is correct shown as a Chroma app in the list.
In Vivaldi I changed all themes - with accent colors enabled, deactivated and and and - restarte PC (Windows 10) several times.
Nothing happens ....
