Now that some water has passed under the bridge:
What are Vivaldi's plans regarding this - to put it mildly - desastrously looking developments for the users of all the Chrome/Chromium based browsers, one of which is Vivaldi (whose functionality I truly love and value)?
But as much as I love it, if things get bent too far they tend to break. Looking at the
and the ongoing heated debate by developers regarding ad-blocking https://groups.google.com/a/chromium.org/forum/m/#!msg/chromium-extensions/veJy9uAwS00/9iKaX5giAQAJ
or rather the very likely soon to be expected lack thereof, respectively uber-limited capabilities, it would leave those users who want to stay in control of what is being thrown at their retinas little alternatives but to turn their backs to all Chrome/Chromium based browsers.
And that's just what is visible on the surface and doesn't even cover what this means for tracking and profiling.
That'd be it for 'remaining in control' and 'protecting privacy' or 'Take control with Vivaldi.'.
The removed 'disable hyperlink auditing' (click tracking) flag was apparently just the beginning.
Yes, I am aware of uBlock Origin - for now - being able to intercept those.
So yeah, what are Vivaldi's plans for these challenges and how does the company intend to keep users, in the light of such gloomy and grim prospects?
Thanks in advance.
