macOS history swiping fix – Vivaldi Browser snapshot 2979.2/3

In today’s snapshot we fix the issue with history navigation on macOS.

After so many major changes since 5.0 (Scrollable Tabs, Editable Toolbars, customizable Rocker Gestures, Tasks Panel, Windows Panel, etc.) and two more with this update (Workspaces, Editable icons) it felt about time to bump the major version number. Thus the next release will now be called 6.0. Additionally as we are getting close to release, we also provide stable stream builds (red icons) for those that would like to try updating stable early.

Known Issues

  • When installed before the official 6.0 release date, build 2979.3 will show the wrong “What’s New” page on first launch.

Download – Snapshot stream (2979.2)

Download – Stable stream (2979.3)

(Note: Snapshot build 2979.2 and Stable 2979.3 are identical, except for icon resources and the stream they will receive updates from.)
