Talking Vivaldi - as recommended by WebUser

Just trying out Vivaldi as recommended by WebUser in todays magazine. 8th Jan 18

Well I have the flu, so nowt else to do.
  1. It is fast, but then it's an empty browser.
  2. Mouse gestures are included & map-able, huzzah
  3. But 9 (NINE) of the supplied BOOKMARKS are dead, how new is this browser?
  4. Importing bookmarks from Firefox successful, but zero logins / passwords imported.
  5. Must change from Yankee modified to English to British English, it cannot detect the region, however that also sets the spellchecker.

You can find out a lot from Vivaldi’s Help menu. Press F1 or use this link:

Vivaldi Browser Help Center

As Vivaldi uses extensions from the Chrome Web Store, you can get these extensions Alan:

LastPass: Free Password Manager - Chrome Web Store

Xmarks Bookmark Sync - Chrome Web Store

Default Re: Vivaldi - as recommended by WebUser

A feature you may find useful. In Vivaldi, there seem to be 2 lots of Settings! The 1st lot, also called 'Startup Settings', you can get easily, either by using the icon at the bottom of the Web Panel on the left hand side of the browser or by pressing Alt+P or by going to Tools>Settings. I haven't discovered an easy way yet to access the 2nd lot initially, but you can do it like this:

Go to any place where you'll be entering text - composing an email, logging in here, the message box in a forum - right click and by 'Spellcheck', click 'Language settings'. This will open another Settings feature where you can set your preferred version of English for using both in the browser itself and for spell checking.

When this version of settings is open, I suggest that you first click the 3-bar icon on the top left hand side of the page and find out what other settings you can look at and tweak if you want to; then right click at the top of the page and click 'Add to Web Panel'. Another Settings icon, which looks a bit different will appear in the Web Panel so that you'll always be able to access it if/when you want to. To open anything shown in your Web Panel, right click on its icon and choose whether to open it in the current tab or a new one or wherever you prefer.

If you don't save these Settings this way, I don't know how you'd be able to get them to show easily once you've closed the browser and re-opened it another time. If anyone finds out, please let me know!

Hopefully this will help you with your language/spell check preferences Meester Chris! I hope you'll feel better soon.

Incidentally I've saved the Vivaldi Help menu in the Web Panel too simply for speed of access!

This is something you can do if you prefer having a Menu Bar rather than using the Menu button. Either go to the Menu button, then to View and click Horizontal Main Menu, or press Ctrl+M and you'll have the Menu Bar at the top of the browser - you can get rid of it the same way too.

Thanks Madeline. I will give it a try when I get a few free hours to play with.
