A new setting – Vivaldi Android Browser snapshot 2831.3

This snapshot introduces a new setting for keyboard accessory view, several small fixes and a Chromium bump.

Show Keyboard Accessory View

There is a new setting for hiding/showing keyboard accessory view. Go to Settings and you will find it under Appearance: ‘Show Keyboard Accessory View’. It is enabled by default and the autofill key UI will be visible on top of the keyboard once you enter username or password fields.

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.
