Privacy - Security fix required



  • Vivaldi can't be ready for daily use until the privacy / security extensions are availabe so it is equal to firefox. Here's a test for a current vulnerability: https://diafygi.github.io/webrtc-ips/



  • What exactly is your security concern here? 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!



  • Go to
    https://github.com/diafygi/webrtc-ips
    Look -carefully- at the result.

    1. Your local IP addresses:
    2. 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
    to you.

    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

    :)

    Regards
