Can't use Google AdWords on Vivaldi ?

  • So I have been using Vivaldi to manage Google AdWords campaigns for the last 18 months, without any problems.

    And then today, without warning, I get this message after logging in my account :

    What I do now...I feel like I am being bullied back to using Chrome 😞

    Not tested, but try to use extension User Agent Switcher and fake then browser identification as Chrome.

  • @gwen-dragon of course that work and this is what I have been doing since then, but it's another extension to use and waste RAM on it.

    I presume there is nothing Vivaldi can do about this ?

    Google is the bad guy which keeps out Vivaldi by bad browser sniffing.

  • @davidmtl using developer tools (f12) you can fake the user agent while the dev tools are kept open.
    menu/More tools/Network conditions, user agent (untick Select automatically) and then choose Chrome

  • @ian-coog thank you, that is a great tip. Is there any way I can set it by default, and not having to leave the developper tools window open ?

  • no
