Vivaldi 1.15: Bookmarks Menu, Fullscreen UI Improvements

A new developer snapshot of the most innovative web browser Vivaldi is out today. The snapshot 1.15.1111.3 represents the upcoming app version 1.15 and comes with a long awaited feature: Bookmarks added to the main menu, and Toggle UI elements in fullscreen.

The new Bookmarks menu can be found in the main menu of the app. To see it, press Ctrl + M in the browser or click on the Vivaldi icon in the top left corner of the window and select View - Horizontal Main Menu.

When you click on the item, it will contain all the commands related to bookmark management along with the list of your bookmarks.

This change will be useful for users who prefer to use Vivaldi with the main menu enabled.

If you are using fullscreen mode often in Vivaldi, you will like the next change. You can now toggle the appearance of all hidden UI elements while in fullscreen (F11).  Unfortunately, the feature is a bit buggy in this release. The next screenshot demonstrates the left pane enabled in fullscreen mode.
