Web Page Accent Color – Vivaldi Android Browser snapshot 2549.3

Today’s snapshot introduces a new theme setting, improves performance, and upgrades Chromium to 98.

Web page accent color

Adaptive color based on web pages was the only option by now. This snapshot introduces a new setting to change web page accent color where users will find a set of themes to choose from or make their own custom color. To find that option go to Settings → Theme → Accent color and select or make a color you are happy with.

Improved performance

We have been working on improving scrolling speed and smoothness and tab bar loading, especially for those of you who have a lot of opened tabs.

Take a look at the changelog for a full overview of the changes and let us know what you think.

Differences to Final

The purpose of these snapshots is to allow our users a chance to preview upcoming changes, and to help us ensure the quality of our latest fixes and improvements, before we add them to Final. If you would prefer something that was already widely tested, stick with the main Vivaldi Android package.

When testing a Snapshot, it is a good idea to review the changelog (below). Try out the changes and let us know your thoughts in the comments section or directly in the Play Store. When commenting in the Play Store, remember that it is helpful to mention the version you were testing with.

Download options

We are currently offering Snapshots from the Play Store.

Get it on Google Play

Sometimes there might be a delay after a snapshot blog post goes live, while updates are rolled out via the Play Store. If you don’t want to wait, or you do not use the Play Store on your device, we also offer .apk files for manual installation.

Alternative Downloads (2549.3)

Manually installed files can be updated from the Play Store at a later date, provided you installed the one that is most appropriate for your device. If you are not sure which one is right for you, simply install Droid Hardware Info [Alt], switch to the ‘System’ Tab and look at the ‘Instruction Sets’ line.
