Vivaldi 1.12: bug fixes and some useful improvements

In response to frequent requests from users, the folks who make Vivaldi have finally added an Image Properties feature to the browser. Right-click an image on a web page and select ‘Image Properties’ to display a dialog showing the image’s URL, dimensions, binary size, and more.

Download management is somewhat easier in Vivaldi 1.12: the list of downloaded files can now be sorted by type, name, size, date added, date finished, and address. There’s a new panel at the bottom of the download sidebar that shows the details for a selected download.

Vivaldi’s Accent Color feature changes the browser’s colour scheme to match the web site currently being viewed. I personally find this kind of thing distracting, but there’s no accounting for taste. If you use this feature, you’ll be happy to know that Vivaldi now has a setting that determines the intensity of the accent color effect.

Vivaldi 1.12 includes fixes for about fifty bugs from earlier versions. None of the changes appear to be related to security. You can see all the details in the release announcement.
