Snapshot 1.2.470.11 – Editable Gestures

May 4, 2016

Yet again we introduce quite a few of improvements, so let’s dive in without too much ado. First we’d like to discuss gestures, the ability to issue commands with help of drawn shapes. With some of you excited and some of you disappointed by lack of flexibility, we hope to address both groups by expanding the feature by recordable gestures.

Snapshot 1.1.443.3 – New tab options

April 8, 2016

In case you missed it, we had a successful release of Vivaldi 1.0 final a couple of days back but that does not mean we took a break and stopped development. We have already begun the work towards version 1.1!

Today’s snapshot is the first in the 1.1 series and we have added a few small features already. We now switch tabs when trying to close a pinned one, provide easier mass closing of tabs, add links to tab stacks by default and provide a new “keyboard shortcut to rule them all”.
