The Vivaldi Beta is here!



  • Hi,
    I'm using 1.0.344.37 (Beta 2) (32-bit) under Windows 7 and I do not fin the option to NOT REMEMBER passwords which was present before, and is present in Ubuntu version. For security paranoiac guys it's a blessing.

    I'm not sure if I'm missing it or it's not there but I would like a way to prevent autofiling.
    Finally, how do I set it up such that it does not start playing media automatically?

    Thank you.



  • Hi,

    Concerning password saving and autofill, using version 1.0.380.2 for Windows (32-bit), I still do not see any options in the settings to disable or adjust these features. If you don't want websites to remember your login data, then I'm afraid you're gonna have to tell the browser what you want, every time it shows a popup dialog asking you whether to save the data or not.

    Seeing that both features are pretty common in most browsers, I'm quite sure that it won't take very much longer for them to receive some more attention from the developers, concerning their customizability.

    As for preventing embedded media to start playing by themselves, this is something that hasn't yet been added to the settings either, but can be controlled quite nicely through the use of extensions, such as Flashcontrol, which prevents Flash content from loading unless you allow it.

    Hope this is somewhat helpful.



  • yes, i have the same problem. I'd love to have an option to avoid asking for password saving completely

    i love this browser!

    For now, you can set this at Chrome://settings/search#pass

    thank you!! it worked :)



  • I am impressed. Still using Opera 12.17 for a couple sites but believe that will be changing as I continue testing Vivaldi for my needs. Great to see the Horizontal Main Menu Bar, Status Bar, Bookmarks Bar, in addition to the side panel. Few small bugs which will be addressed and a few features need added but overall a great browser. Adding ixquick for my search engine was a snap and learning the bookmarks just took a couple minutes. After the 1st version is released, have a strong suspicion downloading and use of the browser is going to take off. Its very encouraging releases are not being rushed and the present user feedback has been very positive. Its like the fun of the Internet is staring to return :)



  • I am checking now on Vivaldi after many months, but - there is still no multiple rows bookmarks bar? Am I correct, or I don't see how to enable it?

    That's a feature that probably won't arrive until after version 1.



  • Vivaldi is an excellent browser–thank you!
    I am also interested in having multiple rows of tabs. I find it to be very useful.
    Thanks again.

    That will come ;)



  • A small question - what does the file "Top Sites" in the Vivaldi\User Data\Default folder contain?

    A small question - what does the file "Top Sites" in the Vivaldi\User Data\Default folder contain?

    A number of things accumulated during browsing but, among them, the thumbnail images of pages, such as what you see in Speed Dial.



  • The browser is oversome! Thank you! :woohoo:
    I see it is made on a google chrome platform. How can I attach my google account in it?



  • And once more: it will be so great to see a switcher between PROXIES like in FlashPeak Slimjet (64 bit) - to allow Vivaldi use not only system proxy settings )



  • Hi Lads N Lasses

    I was watching "CLICK" and the Vivaldi Browser was a feature on there show so I had to come see what it's like.
    Moving on, I'm running the Beta version x64-bit for Windows and I was wondering as I don't see any extensions any place.

    Would it be wise for me to add & use the LAST-PASS password manger ?, or are extensions not an option on this browser.

    I am New to this Browser, so I may of missed something about extensions, I'd appreciate any advice concerning this LAST-PASS extension prior to me adding it and something going wrong, please.

    Regards



  • Three things:

    1. Why did you install the old beta when stable 1.0 is available (and 1.1 is coming)?

    2. 64-bits doesn't really gain any performance and is officially less stable/supported, so you'd be better off with the 32-bits version

    3. I don't use extensions but plenty of people have said they use LastPass. I believe there may have been some issue with the last version of Vivaldi or LastPass though - I'm sure you'll find it in the forums (it was a recent topic)

    Other than that, welcome to Vivaldi…! :)

    Thank you for your welcome. Appreciated

    Why 64 bits? Because I can, also because I have 32Gb@3000Mhz and we all know running anything in 64 bits as long as you've the ram, It'll take advantage of the architecture much better, There are a lot of advantages running applications via 64bit, otherwise why waste their time making the useless things in the first place if they don't work or Not much difference, as you claim .

    Anyway here's a little info what Google techs found

    64-bit processors are faster than their 32-bit counterparts. Google found a 25% improvement in performance, especially in visual elements.
    Then you have Security, 64-bit systems are a little more secure than 32-bit counterparts. also, the 64-bit version of Chrome utilizes Windows 8 features to help make it harder for hackers to target processes running on any computer. If they can’t find it, they can’t hack it. Then we have Stability, It's reported that 64bit crashes only half as much as the 32-bit Chrome.

    Look I could go on and on for reasons to run 64 bits, However, there's always going to be a percentage of old school that hate change, love windows XP and 32bits, That's fine, you stick with 32bits, while the rest of us evolve with the times and move forward and take full advantages of the newest technology, I'm a Virtual Reality Gamer, I have the Rig so why not take full advantage of it's tech and use it to my advantage in everyday tasks and not just gaming. ;)

    Moving on, I'm running the Beta version x64-bit for Windows

    Stable release 1.0 has been available since 08 April. There is no reason to still be using a beta.

    In general, Vivaldi can use the extensions from Chrome store. See Tools/Extensions

    However, there was a problem with LastPass which appears to have been solved in the latest snapshot.
    See discussion LastPass

    Another extension Xmarks, still does not work correctly :(

    The snapshot is available from Vivaldi Snapshots

    However, there was a regression regarding SpeedDial operation
    See Snapshot SpeedDial

    So you should decide which is more important for you atm, LastPass or SpeedDial :cheer:

    And to add a note - the 64 bit version is no longer flagged as "experimental" B)

  • Thank you for that reply, It's more than I expected and answers questions I have thought of yesterday, So again Thank you.

    Going for the Beta was out of habit to be honest, I'm used to Pre-Alphas n Betas. Theirs also the fact that Click made Vivaldi sound like a real great browser, and Oh boy. This is why I love watching Click, really loving this browser!

    Regards
