While I'm usually grateful for new updates, I really don't like the new "Speed Dial" bar underneath the address bar. Personally, I don't need it and it wastes space. Is there any way to remove it?
Also: While I generally like the look of the the large Speed Dials, I really miss the site icons as thumbnails. Now, I just get generic colored thumbnails with the name of the website. Doesn't look good to me. One more thing: When using small Speed Dials, the + isn't properly aligned. Here's a screenshot showing the Speed Dial bar and the misaligned +:

i don't want to sound grumpy, but i hope there will be possibility to remove that extra menu option from mobile and button on desktop, because they are taking precious space. i enjoy this easter egg, but would like it not to be placed in front of me every time, like it's the most important feature of a browser
I M happy with the update i would like the seperate text from speed dial like previous with all the new changes.small speed dial position is misaligned

@jacekn: You can already remove it.
Settings - Appearance - Vivaldia Game - Show Vivaldia Game in Menu
Settings - Start Page - Vivaldia, the Vivaldi Game - Show On Speed Dial

Vivaldi for Android is advancing fast, UI is getting better. Nice bugfixes, nice release, thanks devs!
Why are you bloating your really great browser with an embedded game? Make it a separate download.

Can you make icons for the menu in the pc version, since you've already done it for android?
And icons for the context menu

@HellbillyDeluxe Its even worse for me:
Not just the + is not aligned, but the whole box is for what ever reasons in another position than all the other boxes.
Would have been great if you could have included an option to show no speed dials on the start page among the new options. I don't use them and they just annoy me by being there.
@dpmuk Edit: This applies to Vivaldi Desktop; I don't know about the Android version.
- Open the Bookmarks Panel
- Right-click on the Speed Dial folder
- Select Remove from Speed Dial
Will there be a an update where the improved Speed Dial layout on Android will be available for the desktop as well? Would be glad if such a feature would come to the desktop as well.

This is the second time you've made an "improvement" that makes the browser worse. Please either bring back the icons or add preview thumbnails for speed dial tiles. At the very least, you could've used the bookmark title as the ugly text on the tile, instead of the domain name which is often too long and looks even uglier than it would otherwise.
The other regression you introduced previously was fiddling with the tabs close buttons to make them even harder to hit, when they were already too difficult to use in the first place.

@gwen-dragon: How much space does it eat?

@Vakkotaur The installer is about 3Mbytes larger. That is probably not all due to the inclusion of the game. Each new version gets larger than the previous version.

@pesala: I fully expect GENUINE FEATURES to almost always increase the storage-footprint. The game is NOT such a thing. It is a contaminant.

@Vakkotaur It’s 2mb. If you load new reddit that’s like 5mb easily. And the only thing that could possibly annoy you is the bigger download, not the space on disk, and certainly not cpu or ram, because the game doesn’t use either when not played. So what’s your issue exactly?

Wow... Some are really mean...
The game is just about 2mb in size...
Some are just there to complaint just to complaint like a Karen who got in lockdown for way too long and are boiling in the inside to provoke another of such public meltdown, but are patethically picking upon a simple game that the Vivaldi team didn't even make themselve, therefore haven't even wasted a single picosecond of time used for more productive developments.
I think that some are loosing the grain here, lacking of sleep like those programmer at 3 AM when suddenly receiving a email full of requests and cancellation of the ongoing project, triggering those sleepless zombie-like creatures' despicable moods, searching for a way to discharge all that built up rage.
It's a 2mb game. It is not even running in the background. It does not even suck up any precious CPU cycles of yours. It does not even loads from your unoptimized HDD until you actually activate it. It will not make your questionable websites load slower. Therefore, I think there's a lot of misconception going on here.
Plus, this game is amusing. You might actually step off your mood, jump off your high horse, get rid of that hostile boomery attitude mixed in a cacophony of triggered Karens, and actually play that game at least once! You might realize how poor of a human being you were to throw insults about it, how you acted like a little child who didn't had that corner of the cake with the most icing, therefore deeming the cake is a total horror crying outloud.
This game won't suck away any of your time, it won't affect your life, it won't suddenly bring back that terrible substitute teacher you once got in grade 7.
Starting to realize how ridiculous and insane you are by complaining about a inexistant problem that in fact does not even matter?
Go outside, get some fresh air, obviously it is getting apparent that your neurons are smeared with rust.
Its just a game.
Its just 2mb.
Its not running in the background,
Its not loaded from the drive until you launch it.
Its not a life treath
Thank you for your admirable comprehension, have a wonderful day!
