Weekly build Vivaldi


    We present you the next weekly build of the Vivaldi browser under the number As many of you know, last week we were busy preparing for the release of a test version of Vivaldi TP2, but despite this, there is also something to show in today's test build from the work done.

    First of all, we continued to work on spatial navigation. Now it works significantly better compared to the previous version, although, of course, to fully work and convenient tool still work and work. What we do.

    We also made a significant improvement in browser interface performance. We hope you enjoy these changes, as In previous versions, there were quite a few complaints about the operation of the interface.

    Another noticeable change that you find in the settings - we added the ability to disable some Google services, traditionally presented in Chromium-based browsers. We do not give an assessment of the quality of these services, we just give you the opportunity to refuse them if you want it. These changes should be to the taste of users who pay attention to the issues of privacy and security of personal data. Why - a few words about this below.

    From time to time, the Vivaldi browser downloads short information about potentially dangerous or phishing sites from Google’s servers. If a match is found, Vivaldi asks Google for more detailed information about the dangerous site and notifies the user of possible security problems. But some users do not like the fact that some third-party service, even if it belongs to Google, is informed about their activity on the network. Thus, such users can easily refuse a similar service in the Vivaldi browser settings.
