Chromebook support and various fixes – Vivaldi Android Browser snapshot 1741.3

Today’s snapshot includes bug fixes and improvements, and updates Chromium to 79.

We’ve made it possible to run Vivaldi Mobile on Chromebooks. It is the very first step and the user interface is still work in progress.

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

Differences to Beta/Final

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

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.
