Snapshot (1.0.156.2): Feature polish and tons of bug fixes

We are spending lots of time fixing as many issues as possible to make the TP3 as good as it can be! Here’s the latest Snapshot build of the Vivaldi browser.

Snapshot-1-0-156-2

As each day passes, we close in on the next TP. We are spending lots of time fixing as many issues as possible to make the TP3 as good as it can be. We hope you are as excited as we are.

To mention some of the most important changes and fixes, we fixed several issues related to installer/autoupdates. It should no longer cause any of the update/uninstall issues seen in the previous snapshot build.

Keyboard shortcuts received several new fixes. It now has the ability to restore/delete them in an easier fashion.

There are also couple of new keyboard shortcuts in the settings:

  • Tile tab stack vertically: Ctrl + F9
  • Tile tab stack horizontally: Ctrl + F8
  • Tile tab stack to gid: Ctrl + F7
  • Zoom in: 0, +
  • Zoom out: 9, -

Improvement on Spatial navigation is ongoing. Hopefully, you find it more usable in this build with the recent bug fixes and algorithm optimisations.

For those of you on Mac, we’ve done some work for the main menu. Vivaldi now controls it from JavaScript and displays all the menu items which were previously not accessible in the main menu.

We appreciate all the feedback and comments we get on these snapshot, and could not have come this far without them. Thank you!

Please note that this is still very early in production, there will be issues, and the browser is still far from optimized, changes will be made, and improvements will be added, but untill then, use at your own risk.
