Further updates to tabs and tablet UI – Vivaldi Android Browser snapshot 2490.3

This snapshot includes more fixes and improvements for tab bar and tablet UI.

Tab stacking

Tab stacking is now enabled by default.
And we’ve added another way to combine tabs – by long pressing on the new tab button (+)->Create new tab stack.

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.
