@risingstark The one resource that is non-renewable is time. Developers are the minority¹ in a small team at Vivaldi. Most of the feedback is provided via this forum with volunteer Ambassadors and Moderators.
Ideas on how to improve feedback are ten a penny, but there is almost no staff time available to implement any worthwhile system. The forum code also has its limitations.
¹ Actually 22 developers, among a team of 54 including two dogs, who presumably are there just to sniff out the bugs.

I'm fairly new to the blogging platform on Vivaldi, though its WordPress skeleton is wonderfully familiar.
What I've not been able to work out is why there are no stats for the blog, as in vanilla WordPress blogs. Is this a security/tracking issue?
If not, would having basic stats for the blog platform be possible?
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.
With your push into email and syncing, 2FA should have been implemented day 1. If the systems were built with security in mind then there would not be roadblocks here. They're only here because it was leapfrogged.
Hi, there is a sync feature save most data and settings to a Vivaldi server.
It does not replace a complete backup but help a lot to setup a new device or transfer passwords, bookmarks and so forth but it does not sync history, only typed history, for example.
@biggy140886 Why not?
Do this like Bookmarks - "Hooks" that can be referred to and used in applications. Unix has a complete definition of "Users" and "Groups" and security tokens. I need an alternate server for security and encryption so I can make a secure group between my devices, but I do not want Google, Apple, and Cloudflare to read all my passwords and check that these follow the rules that they have imposed. If we can use Vivaldi as a log-on server that authenticates UID, I need "sessions" and pk1, pk2, pk3 and can then make it impossible for them to intercept - block them.
The next is to hold all CSS "Style Sheets". So, why not?
I don´t know what feature "share to.." would mean, but what if we got the possibility of keeping "bookmarks" - or "tags" on "vivaldi.net" that referred to internet resources that we defined?
Like I have my own private cloud on my LAN, and I get it NFS mounted by "Hikbox". You can do the same on Androids and IOS - not on Windows:
mycloud nfs: vivaldi.net/$myisp/$myhomeIP/10.0.0.71 <login id>
Then to make it "Safe" - and I can make it all safe, if Vivaldi can keep 3 numbers for me - also bookmarks, that the app can update.
Most here use "shares", and used to insecurity, but this can be "share" in above.
With the app, we can mount private clouds, have a secure net with our own encryption, accessible through being logged in here.
@justahero See the comment by Christian in the Feature Request topic: Include VPN in Browser.
At least you posted in the right place, as this is a service the Vivaldi would have to provide like they do for Webmail.
@luetage My idea, which I did not explain well, was that it is done in a decentralized fashion where Vivaldi would benefit but would not be the sole vendor.
Essentially, a master list of partner sites could be kept by the vendor, and a token could be distributed by the vendor in such a manner that everyone can read as much as they want, within reason.
Sites can declare required payments with a meta tag or JS, stating:
Coin or Token Name
Proof of Payment API endpoint (send payment details including cryptographic signature in order to receive a proof of payment such as a cookie)

@thomasp I would definitely want to add and remove synced devices via a web interface because currently there are duplicates from same device when we add sync to new installation.
But it would be better if that problem is fixed by Vivaldi team.
Or, at least hide synced devices from cloud icon on desktop just like we can on mobile.
@murz Personally I wouldn't mind Vivaldi using telemetry, but I believe Jon Von Tetzchner has said several times that they do not believe user telemetry gives good data on what users actually want.
Using telemetry you just end up with what the lowest common denominator of user wants. And you end up doing what other browsers do, removing lots of useful features that are still used by a minority of very dedicated users, dumbing down the browser to accomodate the masses with no technical skills, and alienating the users who loved the browser in the first place.
Vivaldi wants to listen to its users, and not see them as data points and statistics to be mined.
They always forget that Vivaldi has about 12 developers, commissioned to create Vivaldi for 5 different OS and a list of 4000 feature requests, apart from the Buglist.
If Vivaldi had 300 developers, one could talk about these things, but it is not like that.
Even so, I wouldn't be surprised if Vivaldi 5.0 has AI and becomes self-aware in v6.0.
