A New Vivaldi Snapsnot (Vivaldi 1.0.161.2) Has Been Made Available

Hello Linux Geeksters. As you may know, Jon von Tetzchner (Opera’s former CEO) has developed Vivaldi, yet another open-source, multi-platform web browser based on Google’s Chromium.

Having a modern graphical interface, Vivaldi tries to bring the quality of Opera 12.

It includes a customizable toolbar tab with integrated menu, matching with the website color, a download manager and a mail client (it is not yet available), a speed dial page is available when a new tab is opened, a feature for restoring the closed tabs is available, a zoom button has been added, quick commands for a range of actions, including status bar toggle, tab switch and create bookmark. Also, some out of the box features are included, like: combine multiple tabs into one stack and support for note-taking within the browser.

The latest version available is Vivaldi 1.0.161.2, which has been recently released, bringing the below changes:

  • Unread page indicator in tab stack
  • Highlight color in URL complete resets for every char even if there is no other options
  • Reload of speed dial fails in folder
  • Browsers are incorrect in import dialog
  • Bindings for keyboard aren’t cleaned up when changing binding in settings
  • Task manager missing on Mac
  • Don’t close Vivaldi without prior warning
  • Title is not updated by javascript
  • The “Accept and Install” text in the EULA link must change to “Accept and Upgrade” if we are upgrading
  • Context menus are out of position (HiDPI and Linux)
  • Chromium is opened instead of Vivaldi when default browser is VB-5183 – NSL Progress bar on going back to SD
  • Fix mouse gestures for Mac and Linux
