Reader Mode button and drag tabs between windows improvements – Vivaldi Browser snapshot 1.5.633.3/16

Today’s snapshot adds a new reader mode icon to the address field, improves tab dragging between windows, adds a few more settings and fixes some very annoying bugs!

Reader Mode


Reader mode simplifies web pages by removing most of the clutter. We actually added support some time back, within our page actions. Today, we are making it more accessible by providing a button directly within the address field.

This is still work in progress and we are very much open to feedback. Please let us know your thoughts below.
