Latest news, browser tips and insights from the Vivaldi team
We have just released 1.2 and we are proud of the feedback we continue to get from all of you. Thank you! Tusen takk! Herzlichen Dank! Merci! Grazie mille! Obrigado! Muchas gracias!
Mouse gestures have been one of our most popular features since we launched the very first technical preview of the Vivaldi browser last year. So how can we make them even better? By letting you make your own.
Last week was a busy one. I’ve been honored to meet so many Vivaldi users in London, Paris, Brussels and Oslo. Thanks for all the great discussions.
I tend to travel a lot for work. I’ve always found it valuable to meet people in person. I find it builds far better relationships than you can with emails, phone calls or video conferences.
And it’s important to hear from you directly to make sure we’re on the right path. I see the community as an extension of our team. We’re building this together, after all.
Today we released a minor update to Vivaldi 1.1. We now provide more detailed security information in developer tools, updated our Chromium engine with security updates from upstream and fixed an issue with Vivaldi failing to install on Ubuntu 12.04.
A mere three weeks after the release of 1.0, Vivaldi 1.1 arrives with enhanced tab handling and tab hibernation features. Read on to find out more about our latest release.
Shortly after the release of the final we were informed of an issue that could allow a malicious website to trick a user into thinking they were surfing on a different domain. Since we take our users security very seriously, we got this fixed immediately and have just issued a minor update to version 1.0. Windows and Mac users will receive the update via our autoupdate system. Linux users should receive an update via our deb and rpm repositories. You can also download new builds from vivaldi.com.
We also took this opportunity to address a small issue that several of you had informed us of regarding Notes.
In a previous blog post I talked about setting up self-contained (standalone) copies of Vivaldi on Mac. This follow up piece will address alternative Linux installs.
A followup on supporting non standard locations (including standalone/USB installs) of Vivaldi for all Linux users. A follow up post will detail how it can be achieved for users with a suitable setup.
Something a little bit different for the blog today. This is a small trick for our macOS users to allow them to run multiple versions of Vivaldi on macOS on the same machine, side-by-side.
