@Ornorm You can certainly say that for me, thanks
P.S I dig the new Experimental Notes Editor

I'm curious about bug VB-62314, block of auto-play. Is Vivaldi getting the ability to disable auto-play for videos without the use of a plugin some point soon?

@nilslorvick Me too, I'll disable AutoplayStopper extension and try some sites with videos.
I updated my script from extracting Widevine from ARM ChromeOS recovery images. It will now handle the more annoying parts of the extra steps and it also includes a readme for the manual actions you need to perform.

I don't know what this VB-62314 "fix" did but for example on 9gag videos start by themselves without AutoplayStopper enabled, so nothing has changed.
I am very much looking forward to the new notes editor!
Interesting new flags with the Chrome 80 update:
- #sharing-peer-connection-receiver & #sharing-peer-connection-sender - I'm not sure what is meant by peer connection. Sounds interesting
- #sharing-qr-code-generator - Doesn't do anything yet, but seems like a neat tool
- #win-use-hybrid-spellchecker - more advanced spell checking for windows users
- #enable-ftp - I don't hav eany FTP servers I use regularly, but some user might like this
And remember that is you want to use Netflix, you will need to spoof your user agent as ChromeOS

Very nice, with this update I get a Cast to Device button on Youtube that allows me to cast to the TV from the PC (the PC doesn't have wireless BTW, it's connected to the router through cable, the TV is connected wirelessly/5GHz). Previously there was a button to cast on the YT app on my phone, but the PC did not have it.
Edge Chromium which is on v.79 for now doesn't have this button.
As for the Sources sub-menu, it has Tab, Desktop and File. I could not get Desktop and File to work.
Edit: you can get the Cast function from the right click as well, on Chromium 79 it just would not find any devices (as expected, because my PC doesn't have wireless), but now it always finds the TV connected to the home router (has DLNA and Miracast I think). However, the only source I can get to work is YT. Anything else gives a message of "Source not supported".
Would be great if it would be able to stream the Desktop/files/tabs as well,as the Sources suggest to be possible. LG provides an app that can do that (for audio/video), having Vivaldi able to cast the browser would make it a nearly complete solution.

@cqoicebordel: Indeed! With the pop-up problem (VB-62368) solved in the best possible way, I'm back in business! I must thank the devs because it seems nobody else was particularly affected or interested in this.

@iAN-CooG I agree, autoplay stop isn't working for me either - turning on AutoplayStopper extension again.

Can anyone confirm links linked to notes are not behaving? Ordinarily I can click on a note and it functions much like a bookmark. Now, not so. Thanks in advance.

@Gigzama Confirmed here. Double-click on the note does nothing.
