I just installed latest .deb package of vivaldi on my lubuntu 14.10 amd64 and i have two vivaldi browser in system: previous, technical preview build and current one, labeled as "unstable".
Unlike other browsers i have installed on my OS, vivaldi can't detect mouse 4th and 5th key which i'm using to go to previous/next page, browser doesn't react to these keys and is not switching pages.
Look -carefully- at the result.
Your local IP addresses:
Your public IP addresses:
When did you decide to make 1) public?
What exactly is your security concern here?
You might ask someone with technical knowledge
to explain the significance of 1).
My concern is, of course, mine and
firefox has solved it in a few key strokes.
Chrome and others require additional tools.
Vivaldi (not surprisingly) is currently
broken in this regard.
Any site you connect will read your IP address
and it will be recorded in the server logs
regardless of the software you use.
This is how the internet works!
Feeling is not thinking.
You are correct, of course.
That is how the internet seems to work
Those who don't control (aka program) their tools
are programmed by their tools.
I assure you that while we are using
the same internet our results are very different.
Thanks to firefox I solved my concern some time ago.
If you see no problem with " … how the internet works!"
all is peace and light with our world.
Nothing to be done,
nothing to see here
we're free to move on
Im forever getting this problem, multi-process browsers just eat up RAM, although less on my 32bit laptops.
Being a bit of a tab whore myself the only viable option seems to be firefox for me although multimedia wise that browser is a little lacking
Ubuntu definitely has central network settings and these are set as well.
When I do 'env' in the console I can see the settings done in the central network settings.
But these are not used by Vivaldi at my side.
When I looked into this in more depth it turned out that QT3 is, surprisingly, a dependency of the Linux Standard Base compliance package and not directly of Vivaldi. It would therefore seem to be outside the control of the Vivaldi devs, unless they were to drop the LSB dep which is unlikely.
It's a sad fact that all technology standards lag far behind, and it seems LSB is no exception.
