Install Vivaldi 1.7 RC1 on on Ubuntu 16.04, Ubuntu 16.10, Ubuntu 17.04 Derivative System

Vivaldi is a feature-rich, next-generation web browser application based on the powerful and open source Chromium project, from which the popular Google Chrome web browser is derived. The application is freely distributed and cross-platform, created by the former CEO of Opera Software, built using modern Web technologies like React, JavaScript, Node.js, and Browserify.

A web browser designed for you

The main goal of the Vivaldi project is to make a highly flexible, low on resources and extremely fast web browser software that works across all mainstream computer operating systems, a web browser that is rich in functionality and designed for you, the user.

Note: This build will receive updates from the snapshot autoupdate stream. Even if there are no additional changes, Vivaldi will be rebuilt for the stable autoupdate stream, resulting in another version number change.

“Final Vivaldi 1.7 release is coming next week”

As for the regressions patched in Vivaldi Snapshot 1.7.735.36, we can notice a crash on Linux and Windows systems that occurred when using the drop-down list in the options of the ImprovedTube extension, as well as the ability to change the search engine in the search field when using the Japanese language.

It also makes it possible for users to be able to scroll the extensions pop-ups even if the content exceeds the screen size. Vivaldi Snapshot 1.7.735.36 is now available for download for GNU/Linux, macOS, and Microsoft Windows operating systems, if you want to get an early taste of what’s coming next when the final Vivaldi 1.7 release launches.

As usual, we’ll be the first to announce the availability of the new Vivaldi release, so make sure that you keep an eye on our news section if you want to be among the first to update to Vivaldi 1.7. The full changelog of Vivaldi Snapshot 1.7.735.36 is attached below for your reading pleasure, and don’t forget to send your feedback to the Vivaldi devs.
