Tab bar improvements – Vivaldi Android Browser snapshot 2473.3

Today’s snapshot introduces two new tab options, contains tab bar improvements and jumps the Chromium version to 96.

Tab improvements

There are now two new tab settings options: ‘Show x button for background tabs’ and ‘Show tab as icon’. Both are disabled by default. With this add-on Vivaldi users have a lot more power to customize the tab bar display to suit their tastes.

Differences for the final

The purpose of these images is to give our users a chance to watch the upcoming changes, and to help us ensure the quality of our recent fixes and improvements, before we add them to the final. If you prefer something that has already been extensively tested, stick with the main Vivaldi Android package.
