Snapshot 1.0.303.23 - Tab and Thumbnail improvements

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.

Snapshot 1.0.303.37 - Beta Candidate with Thumbnail improvements

Hey people!  Some might recognize my name from a certain other browser company, where I worked as a developer on the desktop browser for more than 10 years.

As you know, we are closing in on a beta and today we have some more fixes and improvements for you.

Snapshot 1.0.303.48 - Beta Candidate fixing tabs unstacking on restart

Hey,we couldn't let the weekend start without just one more build! We fixed a nasty issue a couple of you noticed where tabs broke out of a tab-stack after restart. There was also a crash that happened after generating a thumbnail for a note that we fixed. Happy bug-hunting and have a Halloweenish weekend!

Snapshot 1.0.321.3 - Tab closing improvements and extension fixes

This is our first snapshot since the beta and we have fixed almost 50 bugs and made further improvements with tab behaviour. Two key fixes that we know some of you were waiting for are: backspace once again navigates in history and several more popular extensions are now working correctly.

Snapshot 1.0.330.3 - Trash folder for bookmarks and notes, plus panel hiding

Today's snapshot adds a trash folder to bookmarks and notes, and added the ability to show which panels to display. We also fixed a handful of long-standing bugs, some highlights being adding the missing Up (stop loading) mouse gesture and giving you the chance to clear your closed tabs list. We also upgraded Chromium to 47.

Well I took the leap and have made Vivaldi my secondary browser. I first installed the experimental x64 but replaced it with x86 because the former seems sluggish and somewhat buggy on certain pages. I really like this browser and it's awesome to just be in the beta stage. The HTML5 h.264 support and Full Extensions support are major points in my opinion. I always wanted a secondary browser under Firefox but all the others came up short or undesirable to me for one reason or another. Vivaldi fits the bill.  :)

Now all that remains is to get under the hood and disable undesirable features to me such as Geolocation and others. Thanks for creating this topic and giving me interest in the browser wasgij6. It's a keeper.


Edit : does anyone know if there is a way into advanced settings like in Chrome or about:config settings controls within Firefox. I googled for it but found no direct answer. I Also tried Vivaldi:config and came up with this message. Maybe the settings will be available in a later build.
