Snapshot 1.0.212 – Mouse gestures with touchpad!

Hey everybody,

While I am typically the guy with the bad news about snapshot delays, I have the honor of providing you all with the newest one today (on time. Yay! well, almost ). 😉

This snapshot includes a new feature enhancement to our popular mouse gestures (more on that below) and a lot of fixes for the most frequently reported bugs from the last snapshot such as a blank extension page, issues related to mouse gestures and tab switching, the broken search box and various UI issues.

Other than that, you can now finally install Adblock Plus if this is the ad blocker of your choice. It should no longer crash Vivaldi.


Keyboard activated mouse gestures

Mouse gestures are very convenient. I actually used to use them so much that I accidentally started performing them in Windows Explorer (They really should have those, too!).

Unfortunately, it has been next to impossible to use them if you are working on a laptop with a touchpad. Until now that is. Starting with this build, you can now either press the right mouse button or the Alt key on your keyboard to trigger them. For example, if you want to go back in History, press Alt key and swipe to the left on your touch pad.

Bug hunt

As we are closing in on another Technical Preview, we are especially interested in any regressions from TP3 and major bugs that you think need to be addressed before distributing to a broader audience. Keep the feedback coming. You guys rock! 🙂
