Geolocation not implemented?



  • I've got Vivaldi set up here on this linux box where I'm working on a web project that uses geolocations and when I navigated to the site I had gotten some kind of warning that expressed that geolocation was not "implemented". I was wondering what the status on this was: if it was in the works, not going to be a feature of Vivaldi (or Vivaldi on Linux but included in other OSs), or if I've just overlooked a setting or some configuring?



  • On Win 8.1 Vivaldi 1.0.233.3 is giving the indication "geolocation not implemented" when visiting for instance http://www.mcgi.state.mi.us/mi-hunt/ There is shown how to change the preferences in different browsers. If you try to change 'Location' on 'vivaldi://chrome/settings/content' and open it for all web pages, nothing changes.
    So it's definitely not a 'Linux problem'.
    I think Zoli62's feature request from March 2015 regarding geolocation is still valid. By the way Millerb270 asked already the same question but didn't get many answers. ;)

    Geolocation is not implemented regardless of OS or settings. Geolocation doesn't look to be a top priority right now, the focus seems to build differentiators from other browsers, maybe when Vivaldi hits Beta.
