Mac improvements and bookmarking tab selections – Vivaldi Browser snapshot 1455.4

Today’s snapshot has a few nice fixes for people using old Mac graphics cards and/or older versions of macOS, along with a new bookmarks option.

Media and older Macs

We have made some improvements to our media support on older Mac computers. So if you have had issues playing issues playing videos on Facebook, Twitter, news sites or popular streaming services before, now is the time to give it another go. Please let us know below if things have improved.

Bookmarking selected tabs

You can now use tab selection (‘Shift’ or ‘Ctrl’ clicking) to bookmark a whole group of tabs. Bookmarking can be done via (right click) context menu, Quick Commands, or you can map a dedicated keyboard shortcut. The saved tabs will be added to a date stamped folder. From here you can move or rename the folder or bookmarks via the bookmark manager. This is another handy feature for quickly making folders containing collections of related sites or for picking up where you left off. For example, suppose you are looking at purchasing options across a bunch of websites. You can now save the selection of related tabs and return to them at a later date, even from another machine (via bookmark syncing).
