Vivaldi on Android launches improved Speed Dial layout, introduces built-in arcade game Vivaldia
@luetage: I quite understand new genuine features will almost always increase memory (storage) footprint. This just, well, yeah I am an ancient creature who knows from direct experience of hand optimizing to make things even fit at all. Yes, I've done embedded. Sure, it's a bit different today, but, well, it just seems sinful to add things that provide ZERO gain in actual utility/performance. (I think the Hue stuff is quite silly, and not for me, but somehow it doesn't scream wrongness at me. Games in other things do. "All programs will increase in size/complexity until they can read e-mail" has become "All programs will increase in size/complexity until they include a game." And sure it was an outside thing, but we get a freaking game BEFORE the more useful?!? I'll actually give Firefox something of a pass on THIS one, as they kept it simple with Pong... which, well, 1972: It had be truly small.)
And I don't Reddit.

@Frostpunk check the settings and select small icons for speed dial. It sounds like you have the same experience as me and was shocked when it reverted to giant speed dial thumbnails - apparently this was the original speed dial and we selected the small option when it came later.

Alright, I know some think I must be some sort of insane for being adamantly against the inclusion of a videogame in Vivaldi. It's been 2020, the Year of Eternal Mondays. Aside from one event in February EVERY normal, stabilizing, pressure-release-valve was cancelled. Normal things closed. I couldn't even go out for a beer on my late father's birthday. One of the last, few, precious things was Vivaldi being a great, UNCONTAMINATED browser. I am NOT a gamer. I do not even have solitaire installed. NO games. And then... Vivaldi succumbs to 2020 and adds something utterly and completely useless. Something I would like to see every trace of, every stain of its infection, its corrosion sponged and purged and, if need be, blasted from the once-pure Vivaldi.
"It's only 2 MB" is as welcome as hearing "It's only 2 barrels of methylmercury" in the lake a couple blocks away.
Vivaldia: Just another damn 2020 disaster.
@pesala: Once was QUITE enough.
@pesala: This still ends up with the, in my opinion, ugly add new speed dial button. On desktop setting the homepage to about:blank works well but that's not an option on android.
