Default Vivaldi 1.8 (at last)

With Vivaldi 1.8 (win) they finally did something about what annoyed me the most.

First, I no longer have to follow the bouncing bookmark list. If I drag something into a folder near the bottom of the list, the focus remains there, instead of bouncing me up to the top.

Second, the history can now be displayed in the side panel. With this I can click on one history link after another (on the left), while checking in the main window to see if I've found the right one yet.

There is also an advanced history interface. Part of it looks helpful as an advanced tool for locating history items. The rest looks like analytics for people with too much time on their hands.

Thanks for that link! I think that's a excellent way to do browser history although I rarely use history...

Here's another new feature:

Quote:
Create notes with drag-and-drop: you may already be using the Notes Panel where you can add your thoughts and even screenshots to the pages you’re browsing. Now you can also create notes by simply dragging and dropping selected text into the Notes menu – not only from the browser itself, but from any other application.

The notes thing could be quite handy. Do you know if you can only access the notes you've created from within the browser? In other words, the note function is not independent of the browser?

I would suspect one could only access via the browser...
