Same old New Window now opens faster – Vivaldi Browser snapshot 3062.3

Vivaldi enables the “Browser windows in Portal” experiment by default: an underlying change to how Vivaldi handles multiple windows.

Hi! In this update, we have made some significant underlying changes to how Vivaldi handles multiple windows. For now, the changes should mean that new windows will open faster. Going forward, these changes should allow us to address some long-standing issues and feature requests. Stay tuned to the Vivaldi Snapshots blog!

If you encounter a new issue in this update, please navigate to vivaldi://experiments, temporarily enable the “Disable browser window in portal” option, and see if the problem persists. We are interested in hearing about any new issues in the comments below!
