Double Chromium bump – Vivaldi Browser snapshot 1916.3

Today’s snapshot moves our snapshot stream to Chromium 83. With such a big engine upgrade, expect some regressions.

Chromium 82 is being skipped because of changes in the upstream release schedule, as part of their response to the novel coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2).

Known Issues

  • [Address bar] Redundant audiocapture permission (VB-67405)
