@Steffie If they wanted this they could already do so. They just need to disable the default blocker sources and add one from adblock plus, or whatever it's called.
Alas, I don't use reddit anymore so cannot respond to them with this.
I think that Vivaldi is not a browser for people who only use it to check their mail, post on a social network and little else. For this, of course, the EDGE or any other also works.
It is not worth getting into deep discussions in these cases.
@Steffie Sadly I can't give you more upvotes for every lovely quote of that past you post, you would have 8 by now, they are all great . They were such an explosion of accumulated oppressive energy over the whole depressed situation for years you have so wonderfully captured in terms of facts and feelings in your previous post and are indeed a joy to read them anew after all those years
It was in the Opera Blog such as it was back in the "O"15+ dark dank depressed days. Update after update issued forth, only to leave a growing & vocal cadre of us there ever more frustrated & annoyed at the dire loss of capabilities, but much worse even than that, the growing realisation that "O"15+ would never be "our" browser again, & indeed its aspirations were more & more careening off into a swamp of sorrowful superficiality, a bog of banal blandness.
The blog found so many of us bellyaching & whingeing at the pile of crapitude our beloved browser had become. Then, one day, some kind user there mentioned they'd heard of a new kid on the block, something called Vivaldi.
@LonM said in Vivaldi named, Vivaldi inferred.:
@Gwen-Dragon I hope that if/when M3 gets PGP, it will keep in mind some of the mistakes that other mail clients have been found to be doing recently - https://www.theregister.com/2020/08/19/openpgp_smime_email_client_flaws/
We will do our best and it is good we have you to remind us as well.
Vivaldi is lucky I don't use either of these platforms. My intention is to comment this bug on any platform that reports on Vivaldi until such time as Vivaldi takes security more seriously. Over 1 year and this issue is still not solved:

my dearest steffie
Whilst it is true that i am not a bargain-basement steffie, equally it is fallacious to allege that i might be the most expensive steffie on the shelf. We actually come in a wide selection of price-points, to cover most of the market's value-proposition sectors.
As to the remainder of your response, given you insist on avoiding the fundamental issue, there's indubitably nil rationale in further conducting any discussion utilising logic when not all parties subscribe to such principles.
May your straw-man prosper & thrive.
I have an suggestion how you could get a couple of thousands new users. I don't know how much work it would take for porting V to Lomiri(former Unity). Because you already have ported it to the Raspberry Pi. I am using Ubuntu Touch(Lomiri) on an old Nexus 5 and there is not much to compete with if you would port V to this platform or maybe to PostmarketOs too. Perhaps become the default browser.
