Snapshot 1.0.352.3 – New options and better fonts for Chinese users

In today’s Snapshot: New options for tab opening position, URL protocol display and autocomplete behaviour as well as improved Vivaldi UI font for Chinese users

Following our successful beta 2 launch yesterday, we have even more improvements for you in today’s snapshot, with new options for: tab opening position, URL protocol display and autocomplete behaviour. We also improved the font used in our UI for Chinese users.

More readable fonts for our Chinese friends

Since not all of you read Chinese, I think the best way to explain this is with a picture:

Chinese text improvements

New options

One of the things that we understand at Vivaldi is that every user is different, this is why we like to provide a range of options, rather than just try and force everyone to work the same way. In settings (Alt+p or ⌘,) you will find the following new options:

  • Tabs → New Tab Position (Always Last, Right of Current)
  • Address Bar → Show Full URL
  • Address Bar → Autocompletion → Enable
  • Address Bar → Autocompletion → Always Prefer Bookmarks
