Linux News Today: Vivaldi Web Browser Now Adds New Options and Better Fonts for Chinese Users
It looks like the development team behind the Vivaldi web browser didn’t stop working on improving the cross-platform software after they released the second Beta build earlier this week.
Based on Chromium 47.0.2526.80, Vivaldi Snapshot 1.0.352.3 has been released this weekend and it promises to add various interesting and useful improvements to Chinese-speaking users, such as better fonts, as well as some hot new options for the URL autocomplete behaviour, tab opening position, and URL protocol display.
The new options have been implemented to satisfy the needs of all Vivaldi users, instead of forcing them to use the same functionality. They are “Tabs -> New Tab Position (Always Last, Right of Current)”, “Address Bar -> Show Full URL”, “Address Bar -> Autocompletion -> Enable”, and “Address Bar -> Autocompletion -> Always Prefer Bookmarks,” and can be found in Vivaldi’s settings.
“Following our successful beta 2 launch yesterday, we have even more improvements for you in today’s snapshot, with new options for: tab opening position, URL protocol display and autocomplete behaviour,” said Ruarí Ødegaard, Linux QA and Testing at Vivaldi. “We also improved the font used in our UI for Chinese users.”
