Latest news, browser tips and insights from the Vivaldi team
We are very close to moving on to the next quality level. Today’s snapshot is not technically a beta but… we are very close!
Time for another snapshot. Today we clean up the known tab issues from yesterday’s snapshot and bring some polish to the search field.
It has been a day since the latest snapshot, so we thought you might like another one! Today’s update features a much needed rewrite of much of our tab drag and drop code. In addition, we have also taken another step towards more reliably displaying thumbnails in Bookmarks and Speed Dials.
Another bug fixing build with quite a few important fixes, including a significant memory leak and a re-fix for IME. There are still more to come before we reach beta.
In today’s snapshot we have added support for HTML5 MP4 (H.264/MPEG-4AVC & AAC) Video and MP3 Audio. This should significantly improve site compatibility on many multimedia websites. We also fixed 15 other important issues.
Today’s snapshot continues to focus on bugfixing and polishing, as we move ever closer towards a beta. We have closed 50 of your issues since the last snapshot, with highlights including further fixes to thumbnails (with more to come) and Private Windows now displaying correctly on Mac.
We are continuing to focus on bugfixing for an upcoming Beta, which means that many of the bugs you have highlighted are now getting more attention. Further work has gone into thumbnail generation (we have even more planned), we fixed a number of common Notes issues and we now respect your selected search engine for things like highlighted text. As a bit of further polishing of recent features, we also added a method for accessing typed history via the mouse. For all the details, check out the changelog below.
In today’s snapshot we have yet another large selection of bugfixes! A particularly important one being off-screen thumbnail generation for Speed Dial. In addition to the bugfixes, we have also added support for Geolocation.
Bugfixing and polishing is still our major focus at the moment. Typed history gets a revamp and its behaviour more closely matches its name, web panels can now be assigned individual shortcuts and we have plenty of small visual improvements.
Our focus right now is on bugfixing, so here is another bugfixing build. However, these is also one nice new feature for you, sorting of bookmarks.
