Desktop Snapshots are work-in-progress builds that are available for anyone to download and test. Try new desktop browser features and fixes before anyone else!
In preparation for TP4, this Snapshot focuses mainly on bug fixes and a few more customization options on Speed Dial!
While I am typically the guy with the bad news about snapshot delays, I have the honor of providing you all with the newest one today (on time. Yay! well, almost ). 😉
This snapshot includes a new feature enhancement to our popular mouse gestures (more on that below) and a lot of fixes for the most frequently reported bugs from the last snapshot such as a blank extension page, issues related to mouse gestures and tab switching, the broken search box and various UI issues.
Other than that, you can now finally install Adblock Plus if this is the ad blocker of your choice. It should no longer crash Vivaldi.
Introducing a new dark Theme for your browser, along with improvements to mouse support and a keyboard shortcuts cheat sheet.
The highlights today are improvements to search engine management, spatial navigation, an alternative UI look and progress towards customisable mouse gestures.
In the latest Snapshot version of the Vivaldi browser, we make improvements to spatial navigation, fixes for Mac builds, and Windows 64bits gets auto-update.
Today’s Snapshot allows for further customisation of your Startpage in Vivaldi, adjust the zoom of the browser’s interface, and much more.
Following up on the new startup option dialogue, we’ve added more options this week. You can now define a list of pages with which to start.
With our latest Snapshot (188.8.131.52-1), we put the focus on Startup settings to give you more options and tuned up the tab-switching performance of Vivaldi.
A polish to keyboard shortcut settings making it easier to edit your shortcuts and an update on how we collect usage data.
Today, we released the third Technical Preview of the Vivaldi browser. We would like to thank all of you again for testing and helping us to achieve this important development milestone. Special thanks goes to our Sopranos who have been tirelessly testing our internal builds and confirming many incoming issues.
Hi, we have reached the point of a release candidate for the TP3, so we are launching another snapshot today in preparation for that. Because of your hard work and testing, we have been able to find and fix some of the bigger issues at such a fast pace that we wanted to keep the momentum to have even more stable Technical Preview.
This week has been a bit emotional for some of us as we learned that the company many of us worked for before, Opera, dismantled its Oslo desktop team and fired some 70 employees around the world. As you can imagine, this is a major move for the company as this is where it all started, with the desktop browser in Oslo.
Many of our good friends around the globe lost their jobs. Our thoughts are with them all. Clearly this makes our task even more important and we will continue to work hard making the best browser available for you, our friends.
