Vivaldi 5.2 RC 1 – Vivaldi Desktop Browser snapshot 2623.16/18

Today’s snapshot is the first release candidate for 5.2 for desktop and notebooks.

Release candidate feedback

To help us get 5.2 out the door as soon as possible, please focus your feedback on serious regressions since 5.1 stable. If you want to ask about new (post 5.2) features or longstanding issues, please do so on our forums.

There are also pre-release links to equivalent builds for the stable stream. These are for those of you who wish to upgrade early (having first tested in snapshot configuration). Autoupdate to these (or newer) stable builds will not be enabled until further testing is completed and the final is released.

Known Issues

  • When installed before the official 5.2 release date, build 2623.18 will show the wrong “What’s New” page on first launch.
