The first stable version of the Vivaldi web browser is less than a month old, and the team has already released an update that brings the version to 1.1.

Installed copies of the browser should pick up the new version automatically already so that you can use the dialog to download and install Vivaldi 1.1 to the system. If the version is not picked up yet, select Vivaldi menu > Help > Check for updates to run a manual check for updates instead.

New users can head over to the official Vivaldi website to download the browser from there directly instead.

The latest stable version and snapshot are always linked on the right sidebar there.

Vivaldi 1.1

First, the bad news: Vivaldi 1.1 does not support Windows XP, Vista or Mac OS X 10.8 or lower anymore. NPAPI plugins are also disabled and no longer supported.

Vivaldi 1.1 features several tab-related improvements that provide users of the web browser with additional options in this regard.

You probably know that you can close all other tabs by right-clicking on a tab and selecting the option from the context menu that opens up.

Instead of doing that, you may now also hold down the Alt-key on the keyboard instead and click on the close icon of the tab that you want to keep. Doing so closes all other tabs in Vivaldi just like the right-click menu option does.

Another tab related feature addition allows you to select whether you want the tab on the right or left activated on tab closure. This extends the already available options to switch to the next related tab, or the previous tab in activation order.

Tab Stacking is one of the unique features of the Vivaldi browser. It comes therefore at no surprise that the feature has been improved further in Vivaldi 1.1

Tab Stacking works by dropping tabs on top of each other. This saves space on the tab bar, enables you to cycle through all tabs of a stack, and display them all at the same time in a single browser window.

Vivaldi has added the browser's tab hibernation feature to tab stacks. Hibernation unloads the tab from memory without removing it from the tab bar. This feature is now available when you right-click on tab stacks so that you can hibernate all tabs of a stack in one swift operation.

You may also select tabs with Ctrl or Shift pressed down to hibernate them all at once when you select the hibernate option from the context menu.

The last tab-related feature addition involves stack and cloned tabs opening behavior. When you hold down Ctrl or Shift when opening new tabs in the browser, for instance links that you click on, then you will notice that these tabs get opened in the same stack. The same is true for cloned tabs only that this happens automatically when you select the option in the browser.

What else?

  1. A new Address Bar setting provides you with an option to disable the dropdown menu of the address bar (where suggestions are displayed in).
  2. An option to import Speed Dial data from Opera 12.x has been added.

Vivaldi 1.1 is a new stable version of the web browser that brings along with it new tab-related features and other improvements.

      Well it is a bit difficulty to distinguish between domains and files for instance.

    @Ashwin–Thankful you delighted my comment; who knows how many “gamers” would have disagreed!

    The comments section under this very article (3 comments) is identical to the comments section found under the following article:

    Not sure what the issue is, but have seen this issue under some other articles recently but did not report it back then.

    With the cloud, there is no such thing as unlimited storage or privacy. Stop relying on these tech scums. Purchase your own hardware and develop your own solutions.

      This is a certified reddit cringe moment. Hilarious how the article’s author tries to dress it up like it’s anything more than a png for doing the reddit corporation’s moderation work for free (or for bribes from companies and political groups)

    With Google Chrome, it’s only been 1,500 for some time now.

    Anyone who wants to force me in such a way into buying something that I can get elsewhere for free will certainly never see a single dime from my side. I don’t even know how stupid their marketing department is to impose these limits on users instead of offering a valuable product to the paying faction. But they don’t. Even if you pay, you get something that is also available for free elsewhere.

    The algorithm has also become less and less savvy in terms of e.g. English/German translations. It used to be that the bot could sort of sense what you were trying to say and put it into different colloquialisms, which was even fun because it was like, “I know what you’re trying to say here, how about…” Now it’s in parts too stupid to translate the simplest sentences correctly, and the suggestions it makes are at times as moronic as those made by Google Translations.

    If this is a deep-learning AI that learns from users’ translations and the phrases they choose most often – which, by the way, is a valuable, moneys worthwhile contribution of every free user to this project: They invest their time and texts, thereby providing the necessary data for the AI to do the thing as nicely as they brag about it in the first place – alas, the more unprofessional users discovered the translator, the worse the language of this deep-learning bot has become, the greater the aggregate of linguistically illiterate users has become, and the worse the language of this deep-learning bot has become, as it now learns the drivel of every Tom, Dick and Harry out there, which is why I now get their Mickey Mouse language as suggestions: the inane language of people who can barely spell the alphabet, it seems.

    And as a thank you for our time and effort in helping them and their AI learn, they’ve lowered the limit from what was once 5,000 to now 1,500…? A big “fuck off” from here for that! Not a brass farthing from me for this attitude and behaviour, not in a hundred years.

    Ghacks comments have been broken for too long. What article did you see this comment on? Reply below. If we get to 20 different articles we should all stop using the site in protest.

    I posted this on [] so please reply if you see it on a different article.

    No surprises here. This is just the beginning really. I cannot see a valid reason as to why anyone would continue to use the platform anymore when there are enough alternatives fill that void.

    I’m not sure if there is a point in commenting given that comments seem to appear under random posts now, but I’ll try… this comment is for

    My temporary “solution”, if you can call it that, is to use a VPN (Mullvad in my case) to sign up for and access Reddit via a European connection. I’m doing that with pretty much everything now, at least until the rest of the world catches up with GDPR. I don’t think GDPR is a magical privacy solution but it’s at least a first step.
