I give you this hint.
Besides the obvious fact that you need the smallest list possible to save resources, the point is the very concept of "sanitizing" the Internet with a list is totally nonsense.
In fact, even the "standard lists" like Easylist are actually based on a syntax that aims to match "blockable items" with sort of "parametric keywords" like "/ads." matches any string that includes those three letters "ads" plus the opening and closing characters.
I made some experiments and the average user needs a list of about 200 lines. The problem is each user should make his/her own list tailored on the sites he/she visits. Since most people don't want the burden, you need a generic list that covers as many Web sites as possible. In that generic list 99.9% lines are useless for each single user.
That said, blocking by-keyword-list is good only for the basic "blocker" in the set and forget mode, good for those users who don't want or need a better control over contents. Otherwise, you need something more along the lines of a "sort-of-firewall" like the "advanced mode" of uBlock or like uMatrix, where you filter content by-domain and by-type.
@newscpq said in A few small updates – Vivaldi Android Browser snapshot 1905.3:
[wish] Down scrolling a web page (pulling it, by moving your thumb down - I mean) shouldn't make the address and the status bars, both reappear unless the top of the page is reached.
When I read a web page and scroll it, I often need to go up a little, but now, if I pull the page to read an upper part, both the address and the status bars reappear and it's extremely annoying...
But the way it's set up that is currently the only way to get to options while in the middle of a page...
And they go away once you scroll down a bit, so I don't see the problem. It's just a quirk which takes a moment to get used to.
This build feels faster for me
PD: I would like to have custom adblocker filters on Android.

Guys, I don't want to sound pushy, but when will you finish polishing the UI for the Android version, tablet portrait layout?
I mean, just look at it! Two sets of two buttons with the same functionality. Two panel buttons and two tab switcher buttons. Just look at how ugly this is:
(The above photo was partially cropped for dramatic effect (it was shot in portrait layout). Because it definitely is dramatic enough to my poor eyes.)
Since Vivaldi is all about options, I'd be glad if you could make users able to opt out of one or both of the two buttons in the future. Or to switch functionalities between buttons. Imagine having a new note button on the button bar instead of the useless tab switcher button!
I rarely need the tab switcher anyway, because I rarely bring tabs from my PC to my tablet. I don't even need one button. Why is my UI, then, cluttered with 2 of them?
In my opinion, it would be better if the button for synced tabs would be in the tab bar in the mobile version, tablet layout. Just as it is on PC. Or at least let us choose between a cloud tabs button which leads to cloud tabs by default and a tab switcher button.
I know you guys are at the beginning with the mobile version. But I'd be glad if you could at least provide a low-effort solution to the problem for now. At least that would be better than having no solution, as it is currently.
@oberlyn the new layout for panels in Snapshot is a definite improvement over the layout in Beta -- there's more space for the content. In Beta there's wasted space for the page title. You can see more history, bookmarks, etc. in the new layout. I didn't even realize the buttons (what you called labels I believe) moved until I read this, so not an issue for me; I am thankful, however, for the extra useful space.
As you can see, the moved the page title up into the title bar where, automatically, it belongs. That frees up its previous location to display more content, but the buttons no longer fit where they were before.
Moving the buttons to the bottom also makes sense, rather than trying to cram it into the title bar where it used to be for a couple reasons. For the moment, it looks better giving everything room to stand on its own and not clutter the title bar.
Next, and in my opinion more importantly, placing the panel buttons on the bottom toolbar provides ample room for more buttons, that is to say more panels. As Vivaldi Android matures it would be great to see this feature expand -- panels is one of the most powerful and productivity enhancing features of the desktop browser in my opinion.
