Snapshot – settings in a tab and improved progress indicator

Today’s snapshot includes the ability to view settings (preferences) in a tab and features a redesigned progress indicator—works better in the dark theme. We have also made yet another improvement in tab switching speed.

Settings in a tab

It is now possible to load the Settings page in a tab (vivaldi://settings). You can make this permanent via “Settings → Appearance → Window Appearance → Open Settings in a Tab”

Redesigned progress indicator

The progress indicator has had a small redesign. We feel it is a little bit clearer now and also works better in the dark theme, which we know many of you love.
