Command chains – Vivaldi Browser snapshot 2350.3

Today’s snapshot introduces a new feature that allows you to chain multiple commands together and issue them in sequence via Quick Commands, Keyboard Shortcuts or Mouse Gestures.

Command Chains

A Command Chain is a group of commands executed in a sequence. You can then trigger a Chain from Quick Commands, or assign the Chain a custom Keyboard Shortcut or Mouse Gesture.

Chains allow you to perform several commonly used actions in one go, instead of remembering and issuing multiple shortcuts in succession. A quick example would be to toggle Fullscreen and Reader mode, to really maximize your focus and reading experience.

There is a lot of power here and we are really curious to see what kinds of Chains you come up with to streamline your own workflow. Share your ideas for useful Chains in the comments below. To setup new Chains, go to “Settings → Quick Commands → Command Chains”. Keep in mind that in some cases, it can be beneficial to delay the execution of a particular command, which is why we’ve also added a sleep/delay command with a set time (in milliseconds). If you want custom Shortcuts or Mouse Gestures for your Chains, go to “Settings → Keyboard” and “Settings → Mouse” respectively.
