Another day, another snapshot! Since yesterday’s snapshot highlighted fixes include even more polish to our screenshot feature (new quick commands and mappable keyboard shortcuts), some nice improvements to the address field, we resolved a couple of annoying regressions and we completed a major bump of Chromium to 56 (build 2924.59).
To kick off the New Year we have a new snapshot, with a new option for those of you who are extensions fans but enjoy a clean browser interface. We also fixed a few regressions and started to incorporate some of your feedback for our screenshot feature.
Some websites are distributing Vivaldi installers that have an additional malicious payload. If you are installing Vivaldi and your antivirus warns you that the installer contains adware – or worse, a virus – then you probably downloaded our browser from one of those sites.
One last snapshot update before the holidays. It has the Linux HTML5 proprietary media fix from today’s minor 1.6 update and an attempted fix for a particularly annoying issue affecting our Japanese users.
We have one last gift for you before the holiday period begins, our first 1.7 snapshot! With it comes a new 1.7 feature, the ablity to take screenshots of web pages or even the browser itself!
