    Nice changes. Looking forward to it coming to stable.



  • Hello,
    In this snapshot, there are two problems in the start page.

  • [Regression] Panel and start page buttons are missing in portrait mode when address bar is in the bottom VAB-2636

    I'm loving this bug, my url bar is much cleaner now.

    Please keep it buggy 😂



  • [Start Page] New small card layout VAB-2559

    Cards layout are much too small, it was better before.



  • When Address Bar at Bottom:

    • I like that Speed Dial button and Bookmarks buttons are gone, but how to open Bookmarks now?
    • Navigation buttons + refresh button are on top of the V-menu again (it was fixed previously)
    • Speed Dial List: dials became bigger again: I can see 7 dials instead of 8 how it was before

    I like the current minimal Address Bar at the Bottom.


    Oh, another thing, this popup with Download button is a little bit annoying:

    I think I will hide it with Ublock Origin 😝



  • Excellent. I have 2 requests.

    1. Can you please improve the resolution of speed dial?
    2. In speed dial folder option instead of going to another page (back and forth) can this be made to expand on the same page? (Too many clicks to see what is inside speed dial folder.)

    I've been loving the Snapshot changes until now. Two things seem inconsistent in the UI when the address bar is on the bottom.

    1. Lack of a speed dial icon on the toolbar eliminates the reason I use the toolbar on the bottom; I don't want to have to reach up for anything on the top or take extra steps to reach the speed dials. When it was on the bottom toolbar before, I could access everything immediately, but now I can't. Slightly trivial, I know, but I felt the point of having a toolbar on the bottom was for ease of access. It's less accessible now.
    2. The menu for the Vivaldi icon is getting a little out of control with too many options. If I put the toolbar on the bottom, and there isn't a speed dial button, having so many options in there makes me have to reach further up to create a bookmark, refresh, or access the speed dial button. Everything might as well be at the top instead, if I have to reach all the way up there to access what used to be at the bottom.

    Ideally, for the toolbar to be on the bottom, it is likely because I want to access everything with my thumb instead of reaching up. Keeping the speed dial button below makes this possible. If people want a cleaner UI, that is fine, but that should also extend to less options when you click on the Vivaldi icon. Or, at the very least, move the back/forth/bookmark/refresh/speed dial options to the bottom when you click on the Vivaldi icon. It seems antithetical to moving things on the bottom, if there is going to be a mix of things you have to reach up at the top to use.

    End of rant. Otherwise, I always love the updates!

    Vivaldi menu - Help and feedback sends me to Google Chrome feedback site.
    Surely that won't do?

    And I do miss my Bookmarks



  • Not happy. Tabs behave differently, right click-open in new tab now opens after the very last tab. It should open right after the focused tab.



  • Hi, instand crash while moving speed dial icon.
    Can anybody verify?

  • Liking the changes for address bar on bottom, though accessing bookmarks manager and all doesn't seem to be possible right now (without about:bookmarks and whatnot)

    I never really use speed dials, so the removal of the buttom doesn't really bother me that much.

    One suggestion would be to expose the bookmarks manager and all through the Vivaldi menu, I think that looks better than cramping everything on the bottom bar, smaller device screens benefits from this.

    +1

    I never really use speed dials, so the removal of the buttom doesn't really bother me that much.

    without the button address bar looks clean, i think that it could be an option to show/hide this button. Also we have it in the V-menu, but it should be at the bottom of the list.

    I agree, in the V-menu or/and as an option in the settings to show/hide this button.



  • Well ain't i the very pleased little pudding! Though unheralded in the Changelog, this new one has fixed "my"

    Summary: Use secure DNS resets to Off each V relaunch.
