Recently switched. So far, so good



  • Hey folks. I've just switched to Vivaldi yesterday, after about a decade of using Opera for work and general browsing. I really like what I'm seeing so far. Having some of the old Opera functionality back is really neat, and I really appreciate you trying to make a browser that's got features meant for people like me. Currently, I've got only two gripes with the browser. You can't drag a tab into becoming a window, and tab switching (via 1-4 keys) won't work on some sites, like Youtube or Engadget. If you manage to fix these, I'll probably be sticking around for a long time. I look forward to seeing how Vivaldi evolves over time. Thank you for making this browser.



  • Welcome!

    I was an old Opera user too eheh



  • No problem switching tabs with shortcuts. Make sure you haven't disabled single-key shortcuts in Settings.



  • They're not disabled. It only happens on a few sites, maybe there's some code, or overlay, or something that blocks the function on Youtube and Engadget that disables it. It doesn't even happen all the time, which makes the whole thing hard to pin down.

    Also, for some reason, everything in the adress bar I try to copy today comes out as undefined. Yesteday it worked well.

    Still, it's a work in progress, problems are expected.

    This was a known bug in older versions, afaik it's been fixed in more recent snapshots. Are you on the most recent release?



  • I just downloaded the 64bit version off the main page. Looks like I'm a few versions behind. Thanks for the tip.

    Would you say there's a noticeable diference in stability between the 64 bit and 32 bit versions?

    LE: Oh, how I've missed the image loading count.

    Yes - 64-bit is less stable and a bit more buggy.



  • 64-bit for what platform? 64-bit Linux is good (if you have a 64-bit system) and is considered more stable than 32-bit for Linux. But on Windows it is the other way around..



  • Windows 64 bit.

    I've also notice two more things that can get annoying. Using the back/forward buttons on my mouse browses through the window I last opened/closed a tab on, and not the active window.

    Also, opening save/upload dialogue boxes takes a long time. Does the same thing happen in the 32 bit version?

    LE: Turns out the dialog box thing was due to a Vivaldi process running in the background that wasn't supposed to be there. Not sure how it got stuck in the first place.
