If you want a snapshot instead of stable, set the VIVALDI_STREAM variable. For example you could run the script as follows:

$ VIVALDI_STREAM=snapshot ./latest-vivaldi.sh

Stable and snapshot builds can be run and installed alongside one another.

Note: I use a different package naming scheme than the SlackBuild on SBo (that falls more in line with the official rpm and deb Vivaldi packages) but this means that if you want to upgrade from such a build you will need to first uninstall the SBo version first or use the oldpackagename%newpackagename trick with upgradepkg (see the man page, if you are not familiar).
