The Vivaldi browser adds a mute button to Pop-out Video on desktop





  • You need some #Realtalk, Jon! Will you ever admit - or even fix vivaldi's horrible perfomance problem? all other chromium-based browsers are much faster and stabler! why are all browsers on linux so bad, firefox freezes all the time, opera can't play videos, are those devs stupid and dont test their work, those are basic functions! and vivaldi has also problems with many tabs & windows (why offer tabbed browsing, when you struggle with 50+ tabs?), video and youtube and freezes on social media sites like minds, facebook, at least on my 10y old laptop! why does chromium work and you not?

    Vivaldi has no performance problems here. Of course, I have only a small sample - only about nine machines and twenty instances of every stage of development installed - but still, you would think if it were genuinely horrible, I would have received some evidence of that by now. One has to assume that the performance problems you are having, though not unheard of, are local to you. But with no data on your system, your extensions, your 3rd-party installed programs that can interfere, and your use patterns, we are completely in the dark as to how to help you solve your "horrible performance problems."



  • @Joolz only problem browser i have had on linux is palemoon but changing it to spot seemed to fix the issue.
    all other browsers run fine on my puplinux.Rather than bitching about a browser why don't you simply stop using it,i never see the point in these kind of posts.

    for the record i only have a 32bit laptop and vivaldi runs very well so obviously a problem on your end.



  • Just gonna chuck my feedback on the desktop browser here: ☺

    Clicking, holding and dragging on the tab navigation buttons and releasing on a menu item should be possible.

    There should be an option to always show close buttons on tabs without hovering over them.

    I'd personally prefer it if the bookmark button immediately bookmarked a page, without requiring you to press save.

    There should be configurable touchpad gestures. Chrome lets you swipe with two fingers to navigate tab history. I use them all the time.

    The "Use native controls" option should be renamed to "Use native title bar". Chromium actually handles their custom titlebar frame/caption controls better though.

    Some more hibernation controls and tab management controls like The Great Suspender would be nice. I also wish I could bookmark all tabs using ctrl+shift+d

    Vivaldi is missing some website permissions. In fact, once you go to the settings of a site, you get the chrome settings.

    Bookmarks are so much better than the ones in Chrome! Love that you can choose between flat and tree search. Safari only has flat search (at least for iOS). Edge's is just really bad. Can't import/export, show in folder took a long time and doesn't work that great and the internal pages are just poorly written, unnecessarily loading in lazily.

    One suggestion for the bookmarks would be to allow users to undo actions like deleting and moving.
    The + and - buttons are also ambiguous. + means "new bookmark" and - means "delete". The icons should be different.
    The import tool also doesn't include the Chromium based Microsoft Edge.
    The tree search isn't perfect. I wish I could show bookmarks in their folders. As I accumulate bookmarks, context will be necessary.

    I don't like that there is a splash screen before you open a new Vivaldi window.

    1. Clicking, holding and dragging on the tab navigation buttons and releasing on a menu item is already possible.
    2. Try Add active tab on the Bookmark Bar folder menus. This item can be moved to the top in Settings, Appearance, Menu Customisation to make it even quicker.
    3. Do you mean "Use Native Window"?
    4. The folder is shown when you use the Tree Search for bookmarks.


  • @Pesala

    1. You're right! You have to click, hold and wait for a second and then drag. On the rest of Windows and other apps and OSs you don't have to wait. That's why I had no idea you could do that.
    2. That's good to know!
    3. Oops, I meant "Use Native Window". I made many mistakes as I was trying to get it all written down before I forgot. I also wanted to clarify that all of the the hate here:

    Edge's is just really bad. Can't import/export, show in folder took a long time and doesn't work that great and the internal pages are just poorly written, unnecessarily loading in lazily.

    was about Edge and how Vivaldi doesn't make the same mistakes that Edge does (which I'm thankful for). Microsoft took like a year to add show in folder, something that Chromium has had forever.

    1. Yes, the folder is shown but you don't know the bookmarks that surround it. Chrome's show in folder functionality helps me by giving me lots of context. It's particularly useful when you bookmark a window to a folder. They're both really useful.

    And by the way, is your profile picture a Buddha statue?

    Chaukthatgyi Pagoda, in Rangoon is a larger version of a similar Buddha image in Pegu. It depicts the Buddha on the eve of his demise (Mahāparinibbāna).



  • @priest72: Well if you look independent and here these problems are pretty often:

    https://duckduckgo.com/?q=vivaldi+slowest+browser+reddit&t=vivaldi&ia=web

    also here on https://www.minds.com/newsfeed/subscriptions (you need an account for access) i can't click on anything because of vivaldi's high load with 4 viv. windows and ~50 tabs! maybe it's chromium's fault but vivaldi is clearly the slowest of all chrome based browsers! why is it, that the opening takes so long with 50+ tabs, why does it have to load them all at start, that's crazy and takes infinitely! effin load them only when clicked on of course for a quick convenient start and discard them automatically when abandoned! save my power/CPU and RAM resources, that's just logic and all i ask for! or are you a double agent of the advertisement/hardware industry? also free the mem again, when i close tabs, why don't vivaldi do this? this is highly irrational! we can exspect good software for our support!

    p.s. what is a 32bit laptop, a pentium 60mhz?

    @Joolz What is not working?
    With 3.2.1967.41 Windows 10 2004 (Build 19041.450)
    i can see RAM and all 4 CPU cores in extension popup of extension.



  • So, were the 15 security updates released a week ago not applicable to Vivaldi?



  • @ayespy: Thank you very very much. I'm happy now!!!


  • Moderator

    @rseiler Yes, thats why you should have got an update today.



  • @gwen-dragon: strange, i changed the ui zoom and now it works!


  • Moderator

    @Joolz Oh, ok UI zoom can cause a display issue.
    But that is a bad design of the extension popup.
    Please contact the extension's author to implement a fix.


  • Vivaldi Translator

    @poopooracoocoo Can you please define the differences between Flat and Tree search and their usage in Vivaldi? Thank You. 🙏


  • Moderator

    @pikasingh Open the Bookmarks panel, make right click anywhere, Settings and choose "Flat Search" or "Tree Search".
    With "Flat Search" when you do a search, only the corresponding bookmark appears;
    With "Tree Search" when you do a search you will not only see the corresponding bookmark, but also the path to the folders where the bookmark is located.



  • @gwen-dragon: it only worked once, never again! vivaldi has a problem with many tabs in many windows though it promisedly obviously supports tabbed browsing! the memory load of the viv feature overhead blocks every wanted action!

    another problem: the page "https://www.bild.de" kills your browser, the chromium base obviously is a POS and only overheats the system!



  • @GAËLLE hi could you please take a look at my feedback :))

    another thing i don't like is that pinching to zoom on the touchpad doesn't zoom like it does on a touchscreen.
