Is Vivaladi Botnet?
howdy, loving this browser and its only in beta (especially the UI) but i have to ask. Since it is a Chrome fork, does it phone in on google servers even with the options disabled?
No, you just had to disable google services in : vivaldi://flags
Silly title, but Vladivladi is not a Botnet!
And Vivaldi Technologies has no Botnet.
You can disable the use of some services in Settings -> Privacy and vivaldi:flags as mentioned.
