  • Vivaldi Team

  • Yes, πŸ˜€πŸŽ ,



  • without uBO (preferably uMatrix) level of control both privacy and performance suffer, lack of it is a dealbreaker (another one being well known Chromium issue: text is H U G E as it ignores systemwide scaling and even setting it below 100% in Accessibility won't let you reduce the size)

    No sort by date created for bookmarks? Would make sense for feature parity with desktop.



  • Thanks for the update, it keeps getting better πŸ™‚

    One thing I noticed hoois that the speed dial icons are way smaller now than in the previous version (when I set the speed dial design to small). Maybe a "medium" size would do the trick? Really not a fan of the big speed dials and the new small ones are too small for me.

    Since android is on 3.5 now, can we expect 3.5 for Desktop as well any time soon? Also, I would love to see the mail client on Android 😁

    Great, thanks πŸ‘



  • Please, Home/speed dial button disappeared from the bottom search bar. I hope it is a bug as I had all my favorite sites on speed dial which I access by home button.

    EDIT: It is gone if I use bottom-bar. When I have search bar on top, there is still home/speed dial button on bottom.

  • @mirek74: You are right, I can reproduce it. Looks like a bug to me. Hope this can be fixed soon



  • Great stable release! β™₯

    WebRTC leak protection and auto-clear of browsing data on exit

    Many thanks! Also love the manual bookmarks sorting feature.

    PS: video demos πŸ‘



  • Speed dial folder cannot be arranged like bookmarks when access through panel.



  • It's such a shame that Vivaldi on Android still doesn't play nice with LastPass, so I can't use it as my default browser. πŸ˜ͺ



  • Speed dial button missing from search bar, please fix



  • Missing home button. Can't figure out how to get manual bookmark sort to work (no worries since all are inside a Speed Dial and I sort them thst way.) LOVE THE SMALLER SPEED DIALS THANK YOU!



  • The new "clear data on exit" feature should be "clear data when exit selected from the menu". It's a bit misleading not to say it like that in this blog post. It might give an impression that just exiting the app will clear data. User has to select the "exit" from the menu instead. I know the setting page says that but still.

    Aaand the feature doesn't even seem to work. Enabled it and set history and cache to clear on exit. Selected exit from menu. Opened Vivaldi again and I see that the history hasn't been cleaned at all.



  • We’re working to harmonize the Vivaldi experience across our mobile and desktop products – with the look-and-feel and a familiar set of built-in tools.

    If it's not on the list yet, add support for bookmark separators, and sync them too! Thanks.

    Same here. Small too small and big too big. πŸ™‚



  • Notes don't save the sorting settings.

    3(column)*X(row) small speed dials are very ugly on my phone. Why can't sorting in 4(column)*X(row)? On my phone there is still a lot of unused space...



  • I am really sorry to say this, but Vivaldi's Speed Dial layout is getting worse with every update: Now the "Small Speed Dials" are too tiny in comparison to the previous stable version. The "Add" button still can't be disabled and takes up unnecessary space and the "Large Speed Dials" option makes the Speed Dials look to large and also they just don't look good in general with a big solid background and the name of the website as a thumbnail. I just can't imagine how anyone would think that this looks good.

    Please, please, PLEASE improve the layout of Vivaldi's Speed Dial and please give us also more customization options (either small, medium or large Speed Dials or a slider with custom sizes). It would also be nice to choose our own Speed Dial thumbnails, just like we can with Vivaldi for Desktops. Or have a look at how other mobile browsers handle those things and get some inspiration from them. The current Speed Dial just doesn't look polished, but that's the first thing new users see when opening your browser.

    Yeah, I noticed that change too on my work phone. Wasn't sure if it was my imagination (don't use Vivaldi much on that one). The snapshot on my other phone is still showing 4 columns...



  • I'd love to have address bar looking like the one with the setting "address bar at the bottom" but I want it it at the top - without the arrow bar at the bottom. Is that possible?
    I turned the bottom address bar on when it was introduced couple of versions ago but just can't get used to it.
