@guigirl Well, they've been talking about the internet's imminent demise as the IPv4 address space runs out for over two decades now. Nothing seems to happen, so maybe it's time to start suggesting users contact their ISP en masse 🙂
AFAIK you need a traceroute -6 to use IPv6, the same for ping as well.
It could be your router is not set up for v6, but most likely your ISP just doesn't support it. Like the site says, ISPs have been really slow in using it for their customers.
My ISP (Telia Norway) doesn't support it either it seems.
@eggcorn R u trolling me? I'm not gonna defending MS or Edge to win an argument (LOL), their reputation have rotten to the core after IE6 & Vista debacles. But I will at least acknowledge something good when I see it, no matter how miniscule it might be.
It will take times to develop a fully usable & competitive browser from scratch. I didn't use Vivaldi a lot in it's early inception, because I deem it incomplete & unable to serve my needs at the time. But when it have mature into something competent, I replace Opera & Firefox with Vivaldi as my main browser.
But to be honest, Edge have ZERO chances with me in the future, cuz I know MS is just like G, when they get the upper hand, they will monetize the $H-t out of everyone. LOL
@tom-morton , Vivaldi, although with this it loses its presence in the market, some time ago it has decided to appear as Chrome in favor of the user. to avoid being blocked in several sites, mainly in Google services and adhered companies.
Browser Sniffing currently has nothing to do with adapting the page to the particularities of Browsers. All current Browsers are fully compatible and most of them, apart from Mozilla and Safari, use the same engine, Blink.
Browser Sniffing is simply a form of unfair competition from some companies and the only reason would be to use a security check, in case a Browser is outdated and for this the UA of the engine is irrelevant.
@michuu Thanks for the link to W3Schools. Strange i could not find that by DuckDuckGo engine.
//EDIT: Oh, ok, i did not search for key word CSS, i think. Or i did miss this link in search result list. 👵👓
Anyway, your link helps! 🙂 👍
And i will save that as a Note in Vivaldi.
@Komposten , it is at least one line less than seen from the page, for this same reason I have also put all the status bar icons up, next to the search bar and hidden the status bar, another line that is seen from the page .
The title bar, search bar and bookmarks bar I have kept as narrow as possible, using letters and small icons and so there are 3 more lines that I see on the page.
On a web page I need height on the widescreen monitor, not width, Widescreen is fine for videos or games, but not for a web page, where spaces up and down cut lines, always.
Well, everyone has their preferences and I'm very grateful for this that Vivaldi offers these possibilities of gaining readable space for who want this..
On web pages I have plenty of space on the sides.
People have done something about it, but nobody can be bothered to use any of the options.
Until web sites protect them selves from spoofing by using DNSSec and TLS/DANE validation, nothing the browser has or does can guarantee a safe download.
Vivaldi do not protect the site with DNSSec, so yes you can have an encrypted download, but is it really from the real Vivaldi ?
All browsers could easily have a box in the download requester where you paste the hash from the site you get the file from, but as you cannot see if the site is being spoofed, it solves nothing.
There are several options for automatically including hashes with a clickable web link, but browser vendors can't be bothered until a security issue becomes critical.
Magnet links are only ever used on torrent sites, but are a universal standard that support many URLs/URIs and hash types.
You can have the file protected by including multiple sources and hashes, just like P2P downloads.
Metalinks also support multiple sources, networks and hashes, but are generally mostly just used by open source Linux projects for distributing ISOs
There is also a proposed standard "Trusted Linker Download Redirection"
When the Mint Linux site was distributing from a compromised mirror, anyone that used P2P or the hashes on the main site was protected as the bad ISO would have failed validation.
Anyone using the Firefox browser extension "Download Them All" would have had the option to automatically validate the file with multiple hashes and use multiple sources.
If 1 of the sources was the bad mirror, it would corrupt the file and fail validation.
However, as I keep pointing out, all that protection is worthless if you are getting your download via a faked site because the hashes will also be changed, so until all visitors and sites are both using DNSSec and the sites have configured it for validation it is only a partial solution.
Browsers have the ability to check certificates for domain names, but none have the ability to verify the domain is on the correct IP address.
Functionality of TLS/Dane validation needs to be added to browsers or the user has no notification that the DNS or site is being spoofed.
For now the best you can do is use 1 of the auto-scanning VirusTotal extensions
But be warned, VirusTotal is often up to a month behind recognising new malware.
I saw him talking about this on a BBC interview today. I very much look forward to seeing how this progresses.
I have some big concerns with it:
It would have to be more easy to use than current solutions - a lot of user focused or privacy centric tools have initial setup costs (time or otherwise)
There needs to be a very easy (ideally one click) easy to set it up and import existing data
And possibly the biggest issue:
If 3rd party services do build on it, or somehow hook in to it, how are you going to prevent them just "copying" the data to use themselves.
I like the idea of a segregated data pods and a decentralised assistant, and for privacy savvy folks that will be a massive boon. But how do you convince Jenny Public to also think privacy first and avoid linking potentially harmful 3rd parties.
An ecosystem like this will live or die based on how usable it is, and 3rd party integrations could bea big factor. It would only take one bad actor and your private data is out there for good.
I'm sure they are thinking about this, so i highly anticipated their proposed solutions.
Have never read about this vision, but it makes so much sense from a reader's perspective. Lines of text should be kept to a maximum of about 8 to 12 words, depending on language and type of content, for optimal reading speed and comfort. Horizontal instead of vertical scrolling aids this idea, as illustrated by your linked website.
