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.
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 126.96.36.199, 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
- 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
