Minimum Tab Width – Vivaldi Android Browser snapshot 2521.8

Today’s snapshot introduces a new setting, improves tabs loading and start up speed, and contains a Chromium bump.

Minimum tab width

Some of you like the new way tabs shrink dynamically, some of you don’t. We’ve made a new setting ‘Minimum tab width’ for those users who prefer to control the tab size self. Go to Settings – Tabs and set the desire minimum tabs width.
Note that the option is available only when you have ‘Show tab as favicon’ setting disabled.

Take a look at the changelog for a full overview of the changes and let us know what you think.

Differences to Final

The purpose of these snapshots is to allow our users a chance to preview upcoming changes, and to help us ensure the quality of our latest fixes and improvements, before we add them to Final. If you would prefer something that was already widely tested, stick with the main Vivaldi Android package.

When testing a Snapshot, it is a good idea to review the changelog (below). Try out the changes and let us know your thoughts in the comments section or directly in the Play Store. When commenting in the Play Store, remember that it is helpful to mention the version you were testing with.
