I've just stumbled across this; https://unix.stackexchange.com/questions/472398/can-i-make-middle-mouse-scrolling-on-linux-behave-more-like-autoscrolling-on-win/472451#472451 ... & its referenced https://pastebin.com/YAhiZir8.
It all looks a bit intimidating & confusing to me, but soon i hope to have time to experiment with it [initially only in a VM, coz i'm a scardycat 🙀 ]. Questions i'm asking myself about it in anticipation:
will it work in KDE [& not have unintended systemic consequences]?
will it work in Plasma Wayland, or only Plasma X11 [the latter i expect]?
will it work in V [which is kinda sorta the whole point, innit]?
will it murder middleclick pasting, middleclick link opening, middleclick tab closing et al [variously mentioned in the linked thread, but for me it was confusing & inconclusive].
It sure would be nice to finally not have to rely on the venerable old Autoscroll extension any more.
Hi, how do you test this and compare with what?
My tests with web.basemark.com show Chrome is at score 260 and Vivaldi is 240, about 8% difference.
Not a reason to me to change a browser.
What do you meant with "test address"?
EDIT: Brave scores 250!
Vivaldi gets the thumbs up from Anne Marie, and now ranks among the few that gave a damn about authentication.
both com and net are showing as all green
However doing a further test with https://dnsviz.net/d/www.vivaldi.com/analyze/ shows 3 warnings with 1 common issue.
"The server appears to support DNS cookies but did not return a COOKIE option"
It doesn't look like that is much of an issue, but one of the most important Vivaldi domains that needs authenticity is still not configured properly, and gets a thumbs down from Anne Marie.
Thanks for finally getting round to dealing with this.
I feel an extra amount of pride as well as faith using Vivaldi services.
