Three Cheers to Vivaldi 3.4: a powerful and fun version arrives

    @laingman There are plans to allow editing of other context menus, but it may take a long time as it is a complex problem.

    There are no plans that I know of to add a new folder while bookmarking a page. However it is done it would require several steps:

    • Add a new folder
    • Rename the new folder
    • Add the bookmark
    • Edit the bookmark
    • The Bookmark Page dialog seems to me to be the right place to add Create a New Folder

    OK. I have given up on folders and instead I just make all my bookmarks go to the main bookmarks folder then I do a search. It is to pretty close to being the same thing.



  • Bookmarks under Vivaldi context (alt) and you you can add a new folder and a new bookmark.

  • Congratulations guys. I love this browser and already replaced the "G" one in all my devices. Sadly Android does not allow to uninstall it for a 100% real replacement (I have nothing against "G" btw)
    Maybe I am doing something wrong but to block ads in desktop version, the built in blocker is not that useful, specially for YouTube. I had to install the adblock extension from Store.
    Thank you for coding Vivaldi.

    AdBlock & the native blocker in Vivaldi aren't really doing much differently when it comes to how they work. What determines which ads & trackers get blocked is the filters, and the vast majority of filters for all filter-based blockers (native or otherwise) come from third-party filter lists. If the extension you're using is blocking an ad that Vivaldi's native blocker isn't, just look at which filter blocked it and which list(s) that filter came from. Then add that filter list to Vivaldi's native blocker. Or, more simply, just add all the same lists you're using in the extension to Vivaldi's native blocker.

    Also, I'm not sure which extension you meant exactly, but if you still prefer to use an extension on the desktop, I'd recommend uBlock Origin over any of the extensions with AdBlock in their name; make sure it's uBlock Origin, though, and not just plain uBlock. On Android, extensions are not yet supported, so thankfully Vivaldi includes a native blocker. You can do the same process of adding the filter lists you want to use on the Android version as well.



  • @BoneTone I think it's more complex than just equating filter lists. uBO, for example, has been around for a very long time and has had much work put into it from a lot of different angles. It would be shocking if Vivaldi, even with exactly the same filter lists, blocked equivalently.



  • @rseiler I don't think it would be shocking, especially if those were all just third-party filter lists. There are some extensions to the ABP filter syntax that uBO has implemented, and some parts that it doesn't support. But third-party filter lists are pretty much ABP syntax compliant as they want to work across all the extensions. Also, 1) the user wasn't referring to uBO but AdBlock, and 2) the uBO maintained lists are mostly just EasyList filters that have been optimized for uBlock Origin, that resolve broken sites, or circumvent anti-adblock measures, etc. If the issue can be resolved without using the extended syntax, it is.

    I use uBlock Origin on the desktop, and have since it's first release. So I've got a lot of custom filters I've created in addition to the ~two dozen third-party filter lists I use. I've added all those to Vivaldi's native blocker on Android, and even before adding my custom filters, I don't recall seeing many, if any, ads.

    There certainly are plenty of features missing uBlock Origin has built that Vivaldi's native blocker is missing, but those are things like dynamic filtering (not accessible by default), cosmetic filtering (which doesn't block anything, just hides it), the logger (which is immensely useful to see what uBO is doing, and resolving "broken" sites), etc.

    After initial install, however, the lists are the only thing that determines what is blocked. So I think most users would experience very nearly the same blocking if they enable the same filter lists from whatever filter-based blocking extension they're using. I wouldn't expect the differences to be substantial.



  • Any news on a transparent scrollbar?



  • @RockGore It'll come sometime after any news on M3...



  • @Steffie hahaha, nice one 😎 Though M3 is coming with the new snapshot, I wouldn't be so sure about a transparent scrollbar????

    transparent scrollbar

    Would be definitively handy…



  • @hlehyaric I would say something about what transparent is handy but my manners and CoC do not allow 😂



  • @hlehyaric I shan't be happy til V gives us the option for transparent UI & pages.



  • @Steffie Yes, yes! 👍 And a transparent mail client as well…



  • @hlehyaric Some cruel & unkind folks might opine that we already do have that...



  • @Steffie me wants Vivaldi OS (based on Arch, where the tiles are already on the desktop -you don't need a browser-)
