Automatically close inactive tabs – Vivaldi Android Browser snapshot 2793.3

This snapshot presents a new setting for closing inactive tabs, updates theme settings UI and includes a Chromium bump.

Settings for automatically closing of tabs

If you open a lot of tabs and tend to forget to close them, Vivaldi can do it for you. There is a new option in Settings under Tabs section, called Automatically Close Tabs (Never, One week, One month, Three months). It will remain and ask you to close tabs that haven’t been visited for a certain period of time. It is up to you if you want to close them or keep them. We recommend closing all inactive tabs to improve performance and safe battery.

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.
