Not long ago, we added an option for sorting Notes. Today, we’ve got more good news for those of you who like to organize all the various elements of your browser. This time it’s the Downloads – you can now sort them in your Side Panel by name, size, date added and date finished. You also have the option to sort them manually.
Desktop wallpaper as the Start Page background
If you’re a Windows user (Windows 8 or above), you can now easily select your desktop wallpaper as a background image for your Start Page in Vivaldi. Previously, if you wanted the same image to greet you both on your desktop and on your Vivaldi Start Page, you would have needed to add it manually. Now, you will see it appear in your Start Page settings by default. We are working on rolling the same feature out for our Mac users in the future.
Japanese IME fixes
We’ve been able to get to the bottom of a known IME issue for the Japanese users – thanks to our amazing volunteers, chinpei215 and knokmki612. If you’re interested in joining our team of Japanese, Korean and Chinese testers, please send a private message to our Community Manager/Test Engineer, Takaaki!
