Why doesnt vivaldi has auto update feature like opera browser ?



  • i should always instal vivaldi update manually



  • It does since a year or so.
    If it does not on your system something is wrong.
    Please add your system specs, OS, Vivaldi version and so forth.

    Cheers, mib



  • Opera's updates are silent, and happen without user permission or knowledge.

    Vivaldi updates are found automatically by the browser, but will probably never be installed without the knowledge and permission of the user.



  • Ayespy & i, & i suspect many other users here now in V, used to be active in the New-Opera blogs/fora, ie, from its v15+. I recall that there were many months of forum posts there arguing, pleading & sometimes screaming for auto updates, which then segued into comparable animated arguments about silent vs visible/user-permitted updates. Some things never change about human behaviour…



  • I agree that auto-updates would be convenient, but I don't think that feature fits in with what Vivaldi is all about. Vivaldi is meant to be more hands-on and encourage open collaboration in making it a great browser. If it updates without telling you, it would make it more hands-off and you would lose some of the community feel. I liked chrome, but it didn't have a vibrant community that exists here. I like the excitement of installing a new update and knowing what it will include as opposed to the browser doing it itself without telling me and possibly breaking something.

    Yup. Same here. I like the update popup which shows the changelog with fixes and regressions (if any) :)
