Snapshot 1.0.303.37 – Beta Candidate with Thumbnail improvements

We’re closing in on a beta and today we have some more fixes and improvements for you to test in a new Snapshot version of the browser.

Hey people! Some might recognize my name from a certain other browser company, where I worked as a developer on the desktop browser for more than 10 years.

As you know, we are closing in on a beta and today we have some more fixes and improvements for you.

Thumbnails and disk usage

Some have complained about excessive disk access during regular use of Vivaldi and we believe we have fixed that issue now. We no longer generate and write thumbnails continuously to disk. However, since we used to be a bit “eager” here, you will receive the best future performance if you exit Vivaldi, go into your profile directory and delete the Top Sites file to let the thumbnails re-generate themselves during regular use.

Further highlights

The black Facebook issue that some also experienced has also been fixed, Mac users will receive a smaller update package and our friends from Finland will once again be able to use Vivaldi in their native language.  Enjoy!
