First Snapshot Vivaldi

Wow! It has been an interesting week. We have gotten so much feedback after our initial launch.
We have worked on fixing some of the worst issues in TP and want to invite you all for testing it 🙂

We are new to the game of offering public “snapshots” or “unstable” builds, so please bear with us while we hope to mature this process.
Our plan is to make a “snapshot” available once a week. These builds may contain regressions so it could be wise to back up your profile before upgrading. We also plan to replace the Technical Preview available on with this build unless any severe regressions are found. So, please let us know if you find any critical issues.

You can report bugs through our bug tracking system here.

Since we are a small team, we are not able to reply to everyone, but we do spend a lot of time reading forums and we try to reply when we can.
We hope you will see many of the features you miss in our future updates.

We don’t currently have auto-update so you will have to download/install this update.
