I know Rambox , Frank and other kinds though, I want Vivaldi to become an all in one replacement for all those. Make it as a User defined feature enable / disable on the go will definitely make it lovable for heavy users.
My point is it is not necessary to introduce an inbuilt ad blocker but it will be more convenient and better to have one . this will target those mass who love to save bandwidth and where it is costly or where free WiFi is unavailable . I am sure there a lot of people who are ignorant of using an ad blocker the reason is
they might not be heavy user or there internet speed may be too fast or there bandwidth package may be unlimited or they don't care .
About opera's vpn it has its own company SurfEasy vpn and it provides 4 servers I have not suffered any problems in visiting banned sites till now and it also allows downloading I don't know about big files but small files are allowed.
VPN is also not necessary but nowadays censorship has become a common problem what's the purpose of keeping a browser when you have to use another to bypass it. Not necessary but yeah if possible it would help a lot.
we can't block all advertisements but we can block most of it like U block origin but third party extensions slow down browsing as I mentioned earlier
@NiteShdw: No. I mostly get just the domain first here, if the page is not bookmarked - even if I have visited multiple pages in the domain. If you choose the bookmark preference, however, you'll never get the plain domain first, unless there are no bookmarks for it. For my part, with bookmarks pref turned off, the first two letters of any much-used site show that basic domain first. If not the first two, then the first three letters pretty much always do.
