  • Fifth



  • Tenth. 👨🏼🚀



  • Updated. Nothing to report so far 👨🚀



  • Bring your home button back to where it was before!
    And don't touch the buttons anymore.



  • I've not yet updated, but the changelog seems quite minimal. Am i correct to presume the close data on exit remains dodgy?



  • Please add customize on/off "Scroll to hide toolbar" like Firefox.



  • Someone posted a gif of the tab groups feature in action under the last blog post and that seems to work on my end as well, except for the bar above the address bar with the bubbles. That thing is only visible for a split second when I tap on the tabs button and the tabs view loads.

    It seems to not change when I enable or disable the tabs on the bottom of the screen.

    Maybe it's because of the aspect ratio of my screen, my device is a bit older so it's still 16:9, not 18:9



  • @guigirl Now i have updated, then retested. The bug is not fixed [which makes sense given the changelog]. IMO if the mobile Snapshot gets pushed to Stable still unfixed, the release notes for it probably should not mention the feature of "clear data upon exit", given that with its current half-functionality the more accurate name for it is "clear data upon exit then relaunch".

    VAB-2783
    "clear data on exit" does NOT clear cache & history.

    the bar above the address bar with the bubbles.

    This is called conditional tab strip. You can enable it by entering
    chrome://flags/#enable-conditional-tabstrip

    It works only under following conditions.

    1. top url bar
    2. Tab bar is turned off
      Unfortunately Vivaldi navigation bar above android navigation occupies extra space. We cannot use new bubble style tab bar conveniently. Vivaldi should remove bottom navigation bar.

    Well, it's enabled, it's just glitching out of existence.

    Unfortunately Vivaldi navigation bar above android navigation occupies extra space. We cannot use new bubble style tab bar conveniently. Vivaldi should remove bottom navigation bar.

    If I have to choose between the bubble thingy and an address bar I can actually reach while holding my phone normally, I think the bottom navigation wins.

    What I think might be cool would be if the tab groups would show up as tab groups in the tab bar one can enable and if u tap on a tab group the bubble thingy appears over the navigation bar. Atm tabs in a tab group show up as normal tabs in the tab bar.

    Further evidence the conditional tab strip is just broken
