Selecting link text
Selecting link text (without selecting text next to them) is nearly impossible in Vivaldi (and other Chromium-based browsers). This worked much better in the old Opera, and it would be really nice if something could be done about it (I've got the Select like a Boss extension installed, and while it does help a bit, there are still a ton of cases where it doesn't work - I really wish dragging links could be completely disabled, since that's a feature I don't remember using a single time since I started using WWW).
Hi, you are right, it is a mess.
For some time I use Select like a Boss extension and it work very well..
is nearly impossible in Vivaldi
Not even close to being nearly impossible. It's not easy, and may be impossible in some places, but in general it's quite easy when you know how, like most things in life.
I hope and expect it will be improved, but there's a lot more things I would rather see fixed first.
