    I'm not sure yet, but after installing the Vivaldi 64 bit version, it now seems to be more responsive and stable, so perhaps the problem lies in the 32 bit version. On other sites I have also seen people complain about Vivaldi being a bit more sluggish than back in the days.

    Forget what I said about Vivaldi 64 bit being more responsive, it seems like the longer Vivaldi stays in memory and the more tabs you open, the more sluggish it will get. So the question is: Is it a Vivaldi problem or do all Chromium based browsers suffer from the same problem?

    The only way to be sure is to test Chrome, Opera and also Firefox, because I have this feeling it's caused by the multi-process architecture, I wouldn't call this progress. Can't remember having this problem way back with Opera 12. And with Firefox you can at least limit the amount of child processes to a maximum of 4. I'm telling you guys, Chromium is garbage. :thumbd:

    Does anyone know how to disable the annoying "file download confirmation" warning, and does Vivaldi have a automatic tab recovery option? Because it never offers to restore tabs after a crash.

    Do you mean Tools..Settings..Downloads, untick 'Notify on completed downloads'?

    What I would like to know is how to disable "picture in picture" (floating video window)... I find that really annoying.

    There should be a flag for this: "Enable Picture-in-Picture." (vivaldi://flags)
    Try to disable the flag and see if it works.

    No, didn't you notice that every time you want to download a .exe file, it gives you this warning? It doesn't seem to happen in Chrome.

    Is this a Vivaldi feature? Never saw this, can you give an example?
