Bottom Address Bar
Several snapshots back we announced that tab navigation has moved to the bottom. Now we are taking it up a notch and giving you one more configuration option. You can move the Address Bar to the bottom of the screen by going to Settings and clicking on “Show Bottom Address Bar”.
If you have enabled it and gave it a spin but this set up doesn’t fit your workflow, then move it back to the top. To reset to its initial position, head to Setting and disable “Show Bottom Address Bar”.
Address Bar at the top or bottom? Now the choice is in your hands!
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.
We are currently offering Snapshots from the Play Store.
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 (2023.7)
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.
