More fixes and another minor Chromium bump – Vivaldi Browser snapshot 2088.7



  • @Steffie You're back! It was a quiet lovely place here without you. All threads on topic, no distressed user slamming the door, no mods left in despair, no crying CM about to resign… 🤭



  • @hlehyaric I am a human stain.



  • @Steffie You're the forum's devil 😈.



  • Whilst i slept, did someone at least solve the OT / chitchat conundrum?

    Also, who was that Bad Person again who so confidently posted yesterday in this very thread that we were getting our new snappie in about two hours? [Rhetorical question; i know who it was, & they're OFF my xmas card list now].

    As you can see, the answer is no. 😀

    BTW, while you slept, everybody else left. 😅

    the answer is no

    Lazy irresponsible bunch of ne'er-do-wells...

    while you slept, everybody else left

    That's most odd -- usually that's the effect whenever i arrive anywhere.



  • @Steffie The effect happens here too. Right now, it doesn't look like a Madonna concert…

    @Ornorm interrupted it by posting ON Topic!!



  • @TbGbe That nasty mean man! Can't someone doooo something?



  • @TbGbe I'm boxed...

  • @Ornorm Hilarious!



  • @Ornorm So true! You were so disappointing… 😉



  • @hlehyaric I agree. TBH, On Topic posts should be forbidden in this forum.



  • @Ornorm It's already the case, isn't it?



  • @Ornorm That's what happens when you ignore our Dragon

    @Gwen-Dragon

    You all can post as you like.

    Btw, I never understood why all those beautiful comments we make have to be displayed on the original blog place, outside the forum's (artificial sense) of intimacy, is kinda embarrassing

    I have been kinda sweating about this ever since you posted it. Whilst i technically "knew" this was the case, most of the time, with our day-to-day posts & banter i tend to completely forget it. Your reminder thus came as a bit of a shock. On other technical fora i use, you need to explicitly access the forum itself in order then to be able to read the correspondence, which i like coz it delivers participants a sense of "sheltered community".

    Given our comparatively extended wait for this next Snapshot [historically i believe other times we've had rather longer delays than this, but this time seems acute given the sheer annoyance of the tabs-management bug], we've all clearly become bored waiting & succumbed to cabin-fever. IMO that's fine & ok... but realising now that ALL of our silliness herein is "public", is a bit sobering.

    If it were technically possible, i'd prefer that the "public" facing blog announcement threads only captured & showed comments arising from that same domain, NOT also those from within the forum itself.



  • @Steffie BTW, I took a look at the blog post, cause I completely overlooked that. Not that it really matters, however it sounds like a little intrusive that our private conversations here (giggles) are public there for anyone to see.



  • @hlehyaric Yes exactly, that's what @npro & i meant... it feels "uncomfortable" IMO. Yes i know, i know, one "solution" is to never ever ever go OT in any way, then the "public gaze" becomes irrelevant. However tbh that's boring & dry. I honestly do not see why tech fora cannot be simultaneously techie, helpful, fun & warm with bonhomie & camaraderie... but it should be "sheltered".



  • @Steffie It's after reading @npro's post that I went to see. You're definitively right: only comments from users who post specifically there should be showed there.

    never ever ever go OT in any way

    Rather drastic, isn't it? Far too drastic.



  • Given i was not able to update my Snapshot today after all to chromium 87 😭, in my sulking i decided to instead update my Chromium to 87 😜. Then i explored its Flags for anything of interest. I found these [i am not saying that all of these came only with 87, in fact i know for certain some didn't. I've highlighted those that interested me that i'd not noticed before].

    Tab Groups Auto Create
    Automatically creates groups for users, if tab groups are enabled. – Mac, Windows, Linux, Chrome OS
    #tab-groups-auto-create
    
    Tab Groups Collapse Freezing
    Experimental tab freezing upon collapsing a tab group. – Mac, Windows, Linux, Chrome OS
    #tab-groups-collapse-freezing
    
    Enable 'New' badge on menu items
    When enabled, allows 'New' badge to help users identify menu items which access new functionality. – Mac, Windows, Linux, Chrome OS
    #enable-new-badge-on-menu-items
    
    Enable user data snapshots
    Enables taking snapshots of the user data directory after a Chrome update and restoring them after a version rollback. – Mac, Windows, Linux
    #enable-user-data-snapshot
    
    Edit passwords in settings
    Enables password editing in settings. – Mac, Windows, Linux, Chrome OS, Android
    #edit-passwords-in-settings
    

    In conjunction with these slightly older ones:

    Tab Groups
    Allows users to organize tabs into visually distinct groups, e.g. to separate tabs associated with different tasks. – Mac, Windows, Linux, Chrome OS
    #tab-groups
    
    Tab Groups Collapse
    Allows a tab group to be collapsible and expandable, if tab groups are enabled. – Mac, Windows, Linux, Chrome OS
    #tab-groups-collapse
    
    Tab Hover Cards
    Enables a popup containing tab information to be visible when hovering over a tab. This will replace tooltips for tabs. – Mac, Windows, Linux, Chrome OS
    #tab-hover-cards
    
    Tab Hover Card Images
    Shows a preview image in tab hover cards, if tab hover cards are enabled. – Mac, Windows, Linux, Chrome OS
    #tab-hover-card-images
    

    ...it now means that Chromium's native Tabs Management has become quite impressive. Some of us [in an older thread that today i entirely failed to locate, & in which almost certainly i should have posted this post] noted that it was too laborious to create tab groups manually with their earlier subset of Tabs flags. However with the ones i've newly found today [notably #tab-groups-auto-create which works elegantly, automatically, as described] Chromium feels every bit as competent as Vivaldi when its auto tab-stacking is enabled.

    For me as a tab "Verticaller" [& limiting my comment solely to tab management, not the entire browser holistically], Chromium remains unattractive compared to Vivaldi. However if/when Chromium eventually also provides a good vertical tabs option, & if Vivaldi's sought-after tabs management improvements still have not materialised by then, IMO Chromium would be a real threat. 😱
