    For a time on my 8.1 Vivaldi would delay the add-ons closing and left those processes running whenever I chose to try to close the browser irregularly like with Process Hacker (easy to track with PH list)- They cleared up that matter and now they ALL go down simultaneously instead of one by one.

    I LOVE THIS DEVELOPMENT TEAM- Keep up the good work ironing out the bugs. :)

    Does anyone know how to transfer Vivaldi profile INCLUDING active logins to another PC? I've copied the User Data folder in AppData\Local\Vivaldi, but that doesn't copy active logins and extensions.

    Does anyone have a bead on a first release 2.5 yet? Any rumors?
    Too early?

    You should ask this on the Vivaldi forum, perhaps they can help. It would indeed be nice if there was an easy way to copy most important settings. BTW, Vivaldi 2.4 has got some weird performance issues, it will take about one second to load tabs, so content isn't displayed instantly, so annoying. Let's hope they will fix it in the new version, perhaps version 2.5 or 2.6.
