Trying to Measure Browser Privacy Protection
I've started trying to measure how much more privacy Vivaldi actually gives me over chrome. I've run the EFF's Panopticlick tool and Privacy.net's Analyzer tool, and they tell me Vivaldi isn't very effective at all.
Is there something I can do to fix this? Maybe some browser settings I've overlooked? I'm thinking mostly about trackers and fingerprinting.
Well, now I feel a little silly. I've just found the "shield" at the left of the URL bar.
Apparently it's just that simple. Vivaldi still benefits a bit from Privacy Badger, but "naked Vivaldi" is indeed better now.
@jeffclough Do not forget, you can add well-known and own (from local file) block lists.
Currently Vivaldi blocker does not reach features of uBlockOrigin and Pirvacy Badger. But the Vivaldi Blocker feature is in progress and i think Vivaldi developers will add more.
