Snapshot 1.2.479.8 – More keyboard shortcuts and a small update to 1.1

Adding some more default shortcuts (all customisable, of course!), fixed tab opening to better follow the selected setting and much more.

In today’s snapshot we: added some more default keyboard shortcuts (all tweakable of course!); fixed tab opening to better follow the selected setting (and renamed the settings to be clearer); fixed a bunch of minor issues in the address field; fixed a number of small (but annoying) regressions; updated Chromium to 51.

In other news, we also pushed out an update to our stable stream for Vivaldi 1.1 users earlier today. Just a few updates to keep you all secure. If you did not catch it in the update message, the changelog for 1.1.453.59 is here.

Enjoy the weekend!
