Ah, thanks for that :)

You are welcome!

Just noticed new snapshot

They're hard at work!

Do recall how Opera used to have an advertisement that you could remove with payment. Perhaps Vivaldi might want to consider this?

Saw your post, thanks for that, opened Vivaldi and got the auto update straight away this time. No problems. Yes, they're working hard it seems. Think I saw mention that they'd had the holidays over the last couple of weeks so maybe now they're all back it'll speed up a bit.

Dunno about the payment thing. Companies don't run on fresh air, do they? But surely they must be getting some money from search engine agreements .... who knows?

Maybe like Win10 - Vivaldi as a service :D

Is anyone actually using it as their main browser ? I'm not but I do think it's getting close..:)

deya 21. Aug 2015 10:46 PM

I'm not either, still use Opera more than anything and have it set as default. Maybe when Vivaldi enters beta I'll think again. I do use it a lot though and, like you say, it is getting close to being able to consider it as such.

It really does seem to be improving quickly now.

Just a side note..Deya Do you know how to increase the tab size in Opera ?

deya 22. Aug 2015 01:15 PM

There's an extension. Don't know if that'll be what you're after. It's not something I've ever done.

There are some extra tab settings in Advanced and power user settings - if you have them enabled? Don't know if they'll be any good to you. I'll have a look around and see if I can find anything, and if I do I'll post it in the Opera thread.

......'Visual tab cycler and better cookie management'..

Known issues ... worth taking note of these in this release;

Vivaldi is only shown in English

Autoupdate to this version is disabled—we don't want to update people to a language they are uncomfortable with

Tabs opened in the background can't be switched to via Ctrl+Tab
