Snapshot Startup settings and tab-switching performance

With our latest Snapshot (, we put the focus on Startup settings to give you more options and tuned up the tab-switching performance of Vivaldi.

One of the popular requests we have focused a bit on in this build is Startup settings. You now have 3 options for startup: Continue from last time, start with Homepage and start with Speed Dial. More option will be added later in coming builds.

Another activity that is going on speed optimization. We are rewriting some code to optimize UI performance. Tabs have gotten some attention this week.

Switching between tabs should be faster in some cases. Please look out for bugs here as this is still work in progress.
