etticujed: user shnbwmn is listing that as the program has already been submitted. It's no problem -- I've attached it to the original thread. Welcome to the forums.

Vivaldi at version 1.3.551.30, there are a lot of changes- change log at Softpedia, all downloads.

There are new themes but the Dark one is different and for me it looks terrible compared to the Dark theme in version 1.3.551.30

The buttons in the tool-bar haven't been fixed yet and they still look very ugly.

@SYSTEM
After I posted this I saw that you had already notified us about this update, sorry.

Edit
Vivaldi 1.3 was reviewed at gHacks.

Has anyone managed to get Flash support for portable version of Vivaldi?
The PepperFlash dll can be extracted from portable Slimjet, but I have no idea where to place it in Vivaldi's folder (and I tried quite a few...).

Note: download full installation package for Flash Player for Opera and Chromium-based browsers - PPAPI here.
Test video here.

Well... it's not that I need it, but it bugs me that I can't get it to work! :)

@joby_toss, @SYSTEM and @anyone who may know
Once one could download offline installers for Flash:
http://www.adobe.com/products/flashplay ... tion3.html
but evil Adobe removed both the page and these offline installers.
Does anyone know whether it is still possible to get these offline Flash installers?

@joby_toss
Thank you very much. Your link helped me. Once I needed to download roughly about 20 MB and now due to Adobe evilness I had to download 330 MB and not the latest version (fp_23.0.0.185_archive.zip). I consider removing flash for good.

20 MB? You mean this, this and this?

At first I wasn't sure exactly what you meant, 'cause when I checked the download page it still said that the download package is about 20 MB (in the bottom right corner). But when I clicked on the link, they gave me a small (~1 MB, online?) installer file... You're right, that's not nice! No idea when they changed this installation procedure, it's been some time since I used that page...

Some time ago Adobe announced that they will remove the page I mentioned above- now it redirects and if you choose "Are you an individual customer looking for Flash Player?" it redirects again to the official download page which offers online installer only, and to my knowledge this online installer is bundled with "offers" (flashplayer23_ka_install.exe). Even if this online installer is "clean" and not "equipped" with "offers" I do not trust and do not use online installers. If I didn't have your links I would rather do away with Flash than running their offline installer. As always I highly appreciate your help, you are the Good Samaritan. I am afraid that I am hijacking this thread- I didn't know where to ask about Flash downloads and chose this thread because I remembered that once Flash stuff was discussed here. Once again, thank you very much, joby_toss! I saved your links.
