Vivaldi income



  • Hi guys,

    I didn't know where to put this otherwise and I didn't find an official statement. So here it is:

    Is Vivaldi (Vivaldi Technologies) still only making money by payed bookmark entries at initial installation of Vivaldi and how is it with the mail service? I'm especially concerned, since I thought about switching and I want to move away from services / software which can be accessed / is in the jurisdiction of the USA. Vivaldi has (two?) US offices and I would like to know, if any data in available for USA agencies / government?

    In shot: How does Vivaldi Technologies make money of the browser and how does it make money of the mailing system?

    Kind regards
    Veron
