Match your theme scheduling to your operating system – Vivaldi Browser snapshot 1732.13

Today’s snapshot allows you to match your theme changes with your operating system, and upgrades Chromium to 79.

Theme matching

Three years ago in Vivaldi 1.4, we introduced the ability to schedule themes based on time. Recently, Apple also added an automatic dark/light mode option based on time, to their newly released macOS Catalina.

We decided to leverage this trend for OS native theme scheduling and tie it into our own settings, so we have added a new option: “Settings → Themes → Scheduled Themes → Use Operating System Theme”. Selecting this allows you to flip between chosen themes, whenever your Operating System makes a light/dark change.

Of course, if you prefer more precisely timed changes, or want to change themes multiple times throughout the day, our original (more powerful) option still works. 😉

Resource updates

We have made some underlying changes to how resources are added to the Vivaldi installation package. This could result in breakage related to translations or missing/incorrect images. Let us know if you encounter anything.
