While other companies are busy making clever gags with fake products, and inside joke, we are busy fixing bugs and improve Vivaldi!
As we are preparing for the TP3 release, we wanted to get some more testing done. So, we are sending the 2nd snapshot build of the week.
In this build, we changed the way Tiling works based on the feedback. Now, you can right-click on a tab stack and select Tile Tab Stack.
We have continued to work on Tiling of tabs. You can now tile both vertically and horizontally. Additionally we have added ability to tile as a grid. Spatial Navigation also got better and faster with live indexing and more polish!
It’s happy Thursday which usually means it is not a day for our weekly snapshot.
However, we’ve decide to make a new build available anyway. We just had too many things that we wanted to share with you and we had some broken features and some regressions in our last build as well.
Chromium 41 has been merged into Vivaldi, changing up a lot of code. We’ve enabled first implementation of auto-update available on Windows 32-bit.
It’s Monday, it means time for another snapshot 🙂
This week, we’ve added 3 new languages including Lojban 🙂
- Persian (not supported in Chrome)
- Lojban (not supported in Chrome)
After we released the 220.127.116.11 snapshot yesterday, some observant testers checked the release for the recent FREAK vulnerability, and found that The Linux and Mac versions were vulnerable. 🙁
FREAK is “just” the latest SSL/TLS releated with its own trademarked name (following in the footsteps of Heartbleed, POODLE, Shellshock and others).
Last week, our team focused on getting the second Technical Preview out the door.
We got some nice media coverage, yay! Thanks everyone for helping us to spread the word!
The work on improving spatial navigation is ongoing. We’ve tweaked the link selection algorithm and few other things but we still have more to do before this feature works perfectly.
We also improved the on-demand image loading feature. You can now decide which image to load while you are in Show only cashed images mode. For a image not loaded, you can right click and choose Reload Image. It’s still work in progress but we thought you might be interested.
We have also done some work to improve the speed of the Vivaldi UI. This includes updating some components, noticeably React. Hopefully, you notice some nice UI performance improvements 🙂
Since the launch of our first public release of Technical Preview 1, we have been working hard to fix as many issues as we can in addition to implementing new features. Today, we reached a new milestone by launching Technical Preview 2. It will replace the current build we have on www.vivaldi.com For those of […]
Good news, everyone! We are back to seed the newest 18.104.22.168 snapshot. We have focused on details surrounding tabs, bookmark management, and solved some issues with plural form localization. Here are few highlights from the long list of fixes and additions. Please let us know if you find any critical bug as this snapshot is a release candidate for Vivaldi Technical Preview 2.
In this week’s Snapshot, we’ve included a test-build for 64-bit Windows for you guys to play with!
Last week, we worked on the first iteration of bookmark bar among many other fixes listed below. The bookmark bar is still very much work in progress, but please take it for a spin.
It works little differently from Chrome, as user can decide what folder to set as bookmark bar. You can place it at the bottom if you like to.
We now offer 32 bit Linux version as many people asked for it! Let us know how it works 🙂
I have no intention to bore you with the weather, so we go str8 to the juicy details 😉
In this snapshot we have made it possible to customize the search-field. You can either resize it by dragging the line or if you go to settings you can disable it.
We have also made a option to move the address-field to the bottom or disable it if you like.
We have also fixed many bugs, some of them more frequently reported by you like f.ex: VB-2767 Cookies not shared between tabs in all cases.
