A new Vivaldi snapshot version, Vivaldi 3.8.2254.3, is now available. This update includes changes to the address bar, changes to bookmarks, changes to menus, changes to translations, becomes compatible with Chromium version 90.0.4430.58 and more.

Vivaldi 3.8.2254.3 is most useful for its update to be compatible with Chromium version 90.0.4430.58 which has been noted as a big bump up from the older Chromium. Chromium has been in the news a lot lately for its need to patch various found exploits. Once Chromium, the very foundation of the browser, needs updating, then all browsers which build from that foundation, such as Vivaldi and other big names like Chrome and Edge, must be updated as well for compatibility reasons.

You can install the latest Vivaldi update by opening the browsing and navigating to the Vivaldi icon in the top left corner > Help > Check for updates. Alternatively, if you prefer, you can download version 3.8.2254.3 of the Vivaldi browser for your operating system from the links beneath the changelog in this article.

In this snapshot we have a big Chromium bump and fixes for menus, tabs, translation, mail, calendar and more.
