We covered Vivaldi previously and were particularly interested in it because it promises to be what Opera formerly was. As Vivaldi promised, they started releasing weekly snapshots. The current snapshot is Vivaldi 188.8.131.52. It features several important bugfixes and improved behavior. This is good news, let's see what is under the hood of this weekly snapshot.
Notable changes in Vivaldi 184.108.40.206
- Performance increased;
- Added Ctrl+Enter shortcut keys to complete the entered text in the address bar with "www" and ".com";
- Ability to go forward/backward through browsing history, to see it in action, press and hold the forward or back navigation button;
- Ability to re-open recently closed windows;
- Fixed so Settings window would not hijack the session;
- Fixed one-key keyboard shortcuts bug appearing in forms/iframes;
- Fixed the "black window" issue on Linux where everything appeared black;
