Geolocation support and fixed thumbnails of the Express panel in the Vivaldi assembly


    In the next weekly build under the number, ​​we decided to please you with an impressive list of fixed bugs. Many will be glad to see our work on restoring the function of creating page thumbnails on the Express panel. However, there is something else interesting. In particular, we have added support for geolocation.

    Geolocation support

    Yes, we have added this useful (as marketers say) function to the Vivaldi browser. Now each dog using this technology websites will be able to determine where you are and offer a lot of intrusive servicesUseful services right next to your location. However, we promised that you will be provided with maximum control over the browser, so you can decide for yourself whether to provide access to geolocation data or not, using the appropriate pop-up dialog box:


    Thumbnails of the Express panel

    We have completed the first stage of fixing the function of creating thumbnails on the Express panel and now they should be created automatically when adding a new cell. The function of individual updating of sketches using the corresponding button also started working again. In fact, there is still a lot of work to debug and improve, and there are also mistakes to be made, but we have taken the first steps in the right direction and plan not to stop there.

    Known problems The

    alternative library FFMpeg has ceased to be picked up by the browser, we plan to fix it for the next versions.
