📣 At the end of March I had my last day at . It’s been a heck of a ride these past 5 years and it was definitely hard to say goodbye to such a brilliant team.

If you follow me and haven’t tried it yet… I mean, come on. Just do it. 🫵

So, what‘s next? 😁👇

There's a new version of #Vivaldi Browser out today.

I know it's not fully open source and it's Chromium based, which makes it a non-starter for some, but there's some pretty cool new features in 5.1. :vivaldi: Vivaldi is pushing hard on the horizontal tab scrolling, but for me the Reading List is the big seller. I don't need the horizontal tab scrolling if I have a reading list.

@kev Well, I'd say that #Vivaldi is the best alternative out there, but why would you take my word for it.

Oh, Laptop Magazine has come out and said the same thing. Among others.

It's a fact. Vivaldi rocks.

@matt @rsolva @chriswere (Former Vivaldi employee here 👋) There’s a nice blog post here that gives a bit more background to their thinking behind this:

Happy release day to ! Version 1.11 is out today w/ new Reader Mode, control over animated GIFs and a squircle-y new icon. 😍⠀
All the details on the blog, but here are the highlights:

💎 Brand new, squircle-icious Vivaldi icon.⠀
🤓 Fine tune Reader Mode font sizes, spacing and more.⠀
🌈 Use custom Theme colors in Reader Mode.⠀
👀 Control how GIF Animations load.⠀
🐭 Adjust the stroke length for Mouse Gestures.

One of the devs is live streaming his work on sync, which is pretty neat.

Happy release day to the Vivaldi team! Another banging release out the door. Here are the highlights:

👀 Add custom thumbnails for Speed Dial links and folders.

🌈 Use your desktop background on the Start Page.

🚢 ( Finally) Dock those Dev Tools to the same window!

🤓 Sort downloads in the Downloads panel any which way.

⚡️ Lightning fast keyboard control w/ Quick Commands.

@dominicduffin1 yes! A new discovery for me too. I hadn't heard of it until they approached us about working together. Love it when that happens. :)

Personally, I'm pretty varied with search engines. I use the single-letter nickname in the address field constantly to use Google, Ecosia, DDG, Wikipedia, YouTube and (even) Bing.

Turns out, Facebook is a nightmare in handling subrip uploads for video captions. Followed every bit of help/walkthrough/support advice and STILL couldn't get it to work.

Only thing that worked? "Save with encoding --> UTF-8" in Sublime.

NICE. Launch day going smooth so far at Vivaldi! We released version 1.9 today, adding Ecosia as a default search engine option.

Ecosia uses 80% of its ad revenue to fund tree-planting projects around the world (apparently planting 7M+ already!).

Quite cool to give our users a friendly option. 😀

Turns out Vivaldi is growing like wild in ! Very cool to see it picking up there. We've added Japanese subtitles to all of our tutorial videos to help things along 😁
