GIFs or no GIFs? Vivaldi Browser Snapshot 1.11.917.17

Get rid of Monday blues with a new snapshot. More options include disabling of GIF animations to help with web accessibility and Configurable gesture sensitivity.

Vivaldi Snapshot 1.11.917.17

A fresh start to the week and we are out with a new snapshot with some handy additions. Animations such as GIFs can be a fun way to spice up your reactions but they can be annoying too. We now provide accessible ways to disable them. This supports our commitment to web accessibility. If you do not like to use or see these animations, we give you an option to deactivate them. Simply head to the Status Bar. Go to the little ‘Toggle Images’ icon and you’ll find a new addition called Load Animations. Check it out:

We know that you love mouse gestures and want more control over them. So now we give you the option to adjust the gesture sensitivity by setting the minimum stroke length required for the gesture to be registered.

In addition to this, we continue to polish the Reader Mode with some more fixes. As we are trying to get 1.11 out of the door as soon as possible, please let us know your feedback on serious regressions since 1.10 stable. For queries on new features or longstanding issues, please do so on our forums.
