The Vivaldi browser snapshot version 3.9.2305.3 is rolling out to computers now. When this update is ready Vivaldi is one of the few browsers that give you a dialog box pop-up alerting you to the fact that an update is ready. Vivaldi reports this update includes some smaller improvements to Translate and other features. However, users are reporting that they’re very happy with some other changes including the fact that Vivaldi will now start even if the desktop background is missing and used by the browser. Some users are reporting experiencing other issues such as the Alt+P or Ctrl+F12 sometimes failing but it is not yet understood if those problems exist because other users are suggesting no such issue exists for them. You can read about the rest of the changelog below.
