Request: Make tab switching snappier



  • I started to use Vivaldi as my main browser and I'm loving the experience. I still need profiles but I think I can safely keep those on a normal Chrome portable install since those are for work. The main gripe I have with Vivaldi right now is that 0.3-0.4 second delays that happen when tab switching. I have also a pinned Whatsapp tab that takes even more time (I'd say about 0.7-0.8 seconds) I know they're still churning out features and not optimizing the browser, but, as a user of Opera 7 and so on ;) I remember that browser UI speed/experience was always one of the top priorities.



  • Frankly that was a problem of the early builds.

    Right now my tabs are switching practically instantly although my actual PC isn't the latest novelty.

    Perhaps are you on an x64 build?

    Yeah, I'm x64… should I switch to 32 bits?

    My PC is an Athlon II quad core and I have an ATI HD 6850.



  • Well, whaddayaknow. It actually feels good in 32 bits now, haha. Thanks for the suggestion!
