About privacy settings and our control of it



  • What does Vivaldi has to say about our privacy settings within it, and user's control on it? Specifically, I wanted a comment comparing what G. Chrome and many other Chromium derivatives which are harshly critized (including the "new" Opera) with their lack of privacy and configurability in these. Sorry if I'm asking an obvious question, but it is also strange for me to click the Vivaldi menu's "Help", and after that be taken to a login page - I just wanted some static docs/pages, even if they're changing because we're still on snapshots or TP#. Thank you

    I suspect comments regarding your first question will not be forthcoming right now, except in the form of opinions from other users. Essentially NONE of the privacy and security features Vivaldi may eventually have, have been developed yet - so there's nothing to discuss.

    As to your second comment, I personally think it would be a bit much to ask the skeleton crew who are burning the midnight oil to develop this browser, to also take time to write "help" documents which would be obsoleted every week and have to be written again. The "help" that can be expected at this early, hectic stage of development is that other users, and the occasional dev, will answer questions here. And that's not all bad, as the answers here tend to be pretty fast and pretty smart. I imagine help docs will begin to appear once the first COMPLETE version emerges, containing integrated email, private browsing, routine UI customizations, etc.
