Chromium update and status bar clock – Vivaldi Browser snapshot 1843.5

In today’s snapshot we update Vivaldi to Chromium 81 and add an clock/alarm to the status bar.

Chromium 81

It is time for a big Chromium bump before the next release. This can break things, so test carefully and let us know what you see below. We are already aware of the new issues with proprietary media on macOS.

Status Bar Clock

We’ve added a built in clock to the status bar. This also gives you the ability to quickly set alarms, either in the form of a count down or to a specific time in the future. Additionally like the other status bar items, it can be removed through the context menu.
