Vivaldi 1.7 Browser Gets a Release Candidate, Now Based on Chromium 56.0.2924.88

By our count, Vivaldi Snapshot 1.7.735.36 is the eighth released for the Vivaldi 1.7 development cycle. This is small release that rebases the web browser to Chromium 56.0.2924.88, updates various language translations, fixes a handful of regressions from previous versions, and improves the new History panel. For example, users will now be able to add mouse gestures and keyboard shortcut for accessing the History panel more easily. A performance regression with the new History panel was fixed as well, along with the ability to change the displayed browsing history when the computer’s date is also changed.
