Four new features and 70+ bug fixes – Vivaldi Browser snapshot 3189.3

Today’s snapshot includes, full history sync support, synced tab matching in the address field, workspace rules and a new sessions panel. Plus 74 additional bug fixes! 😉

Full history sync

Previously we synced typed history. This was useful in the address field for locating a URL you had typed before, even if you did it on one of your other devices. But what about URLs you did not type? The ones you navigated to via following links for example. For these these you would need full history syncing (not just typed). Well… now you have that! Both for address field dropdown matching or if you go to the history tab.

Synced tabs in the address field

Somewhat related to the previous feature but also distinct in its own right is that we now prioritise matching against tabs (titles and URLs) that are currently open on your other devices and additionally include them in their own address bar dropdown section (which can be enabled or disabled in settings).

Workspace Rules

From this snapshot you have the possiblity to define rules that can be used to automatically move tabs to the correct workspace based on matching URLs. So if you go to Amazon it will be moved to your shopping workspace for example. Or perhaps you want all work related URLs to end up in your work… workspace. 😉

Sessions Panel

Sessions just got a lot more powerful. Now we have a new sessions panel. From here you can (more) easily rename them. But you also gain a bunch more options, such as the ability to view and edit their contents without having to restore them first. Each session is like its own complete Windows panel. You can use the tree like structure to move tabs around, create new stacks or exclude tabs from loading next time you restore. In fact you do not even have to restore the entire session. If you want, just use the search field to find one old tab and open its URL as a new tab in the current session. And to make it easier still, we now have an option to automatically backup your current session.

It is sort of like having your own time machine, allowing you to go back to any saved point in your browsing past or even …manipulate the past! 🧙
