Address bar performance improvements – Vivaldi Browser snapshot 1525.4

Today’s snapshot resolves numerous regressions, improves the performance of the address bar for users with history set to forever, and includes a minor Chromium bump.

Known Issues

  • Tab-tiling breaks various features of Vivaldi: e.g. Find in page (VB-51831)
  • The text input field on is misaligned after arriving via redirect: Appears to be related to detection of our user agent (VB-51893)
