Vivaldi 3.8 ends its rejection of FLoC and adds its own "I don't care about cookies"

Vivaldi 3.8

In terms of market share, the leading browser in this article does not have much to say. Where you do have to do it is in terms of functions, and it is that this browser with the name of a musician has been created for the most demanding users. Version after version add features that improve productivity, but today have thrown Vivaldi 3.8 And the first thing they mention is that it will improve the user experience with respect to annoying agents such as cookies.

As of Vivaldi 3.8 we will see less annoying dialogue cookies and FLoC is blocked, as as they already advanced days ago. In the release note it is mentioned that there is a new option to block the cookie and banner dialogues that will help us save time making unnecessary clicks, for which lists such as the EasyList Cookie and I don't care about cookies are used, something about what we wrote months ago. That extension will no longer be needed in Vivaldi.

Other highlights of Vivaldi 3.8

  • The panels have been redesigned with new icons, without borders and the content now shines. Also, now you can set the opacity of your background, you can turn on the background blur or make the bar transparent.
  • Now you can add favorites more quickly with the combination Ctrl + D, for which no confirmation will be asked.
  • Ability to disable mouse gestures.
  • Ability to add extensions to quick commands.

Vivaldi 3.8 is now available for download from the project page. In some operating systems, such as those based on Ubuntu, after the first installation the browser repository is added, so the new version will already be available from the software center. In others, like Manjaro, Vivaldi can be downloaded from the official repositories, but the new version will arrive in the next few hours or days.
