Vivaldi 1.6RC 1 – Vivaldi Browser snapshot 1.6.689.29

We start off the week with the first release candidate for Vivaldi 1.6. This RC resolves a major regression for Mac users with swiping through history.


Note: This build will receive updates from the snapshot autoupdate stream. Even if there are no additional changes, Vivaldi will be rebuilt for the stable autoupdate stream, resulting in another version number change.
