Is there an ability to share favorites across computers or some type of sync process like Maxthon (or other browsers)?

"Coming soon", it says on their website re; syncing. I'd like to see Xmarks integration really, but I don't know how much of a priority add-ons are to the devs.

One of the things that's always disappointed me in Maxthon is the lack of Xmarks support, so I have two separate bookmark collections.

I've used Maxthon for the last couple of years and just use the syncing/login option and my bookmarks are synced across any computer/tablet that I use.

Due to a number of reasons, I am considering moving from Maxthon to Opera. I have, however, been watching this thread with interest.

Yes, same here ... what I meant though is that I'd like to have my bookmarks sync'd across different browsers as well as machines.

I've been following the thread too, this does look like it could be a very good browser.

I'm having trouble finding out where one goes to report bugs in Vivaldi? Is it necessary to create an account at vivaldi.net?

I'm still liking it very much but as I use it more I am finding various bugs/erratic behaviours on some of the sites I frequent and in the browser itself.

This latest update, when I click to hide the sidebar the whole thing vanishes and it's necessary to use the View menu to show it again. Has anyone else noticed this? I'm running the x64 portable version.

Out of interest, I installed the Xmarks extension to the latest snapshot but it doesn't work. The icon is there but when you click it nothing happens, just a blank window. Tried the options via extensions manager but again, clicking the buttons, nothing happens. You can't even sign in.

There look to be many bookmark sync extensions in the Chrome store so maybe one of those will work - but you'd just have to try them one by one to find out I suppose.

In Opera I use Nimbus, the screen capture tool, but again it doesn't work with Vivaldi. It's one of the reasons I only have two extensions installed in the browser because at the moment some are very hit and miss.

As for built in sync, it's a question I've seen asked many times on their blog and they do say it's a feature that will appear in the future, but who knows when is anybody's guess. Maybe in the Beta release, which may or may not be the end of this year or early next ... it's all speculation.

It's a good browser now, even at this relatively early stage, but it will be an excellent browser in the future. No doubt about that. I did set it as default browser a while back, just to try, but it was a little bit frustrating at times. Opera is my default, it suits my needs for now. Vivaldi's day will come though, but it's a while away yet.

I agree, I think it will be excellent when the first proper release is up and running. It will probably replace Maxthon for me as a secondary browser.

I read a piece about installing ublock but it seemed a bit convoluted with no guarantee of it working properly, I guess the same applies with other extensions.

I'm just giving the x86 version a spin, it seems better than the x64 and some of the bugs I noticed before have gone.

(Settings etc have migrated easily just by copy-pasting the UserData folder)

I've only ever reported a bug using the forum, never used the bug wizard, but you'll have to have an account for either. You get a free email account thrown in though.

If you have a problem with the side bar open/closing via the task bar button try using F4 instead. I use that all the time. ...... the 64 bit build is experimental so best stick with the 32 bit builds if you want better stability for now.

uBlock works well for me, that's one of the two I have installed. WOT is the other. Many others do work well though, it's just some that don't so it's trial and error.

edit: I was wrong. You don't seem to need an account to report a bug. Do it here;

Thanks deya : )

I'll have a trawl through first and see if things have been reported already. I'm not so fussed about stability at this stage so I'll report the x64 issues too.
