What's my protection...?
- #personalDNSFilter (gh: ingozenz)
Use to intercept local DNS and block unwanted hosts rather than generate large hosts file and inject into system folder. (and then get flagged by `microsuck` defender)
- #simpleWall (gh: henrypp) to block unwanted apps and also protocol to use internet until I allowed it.
Browser in Laptop
- Use #chrlauncher (gh: henrypp) to execute
> #Vivaldi Stable or Snapshot
> #Mercury (gh: Alex313031)
All browsers in my laptop are manually extract and update instead of install directly into program files.
On my #Android phone
- Debloat almost all `Goolag` apps except their play, service and store.
- #personalDNSFilter with DNS proxy mode
- #RethinkDNS app with DNS+Firewall, use DNS proxy from above, while make this app as firewall for only select apps to use internet when needed, block mobile by default except case-by-case, e.g. banking app require mobile data for proper identity.

Special thanks to "DoctorG" on the Vivaldi Browser community, who supplied this fix for me to share.
I have a working FIX for Vivaldi Browser to resolve the Widevine issue.
* Open vivaldi://components
* Locate: “Widevine Content Decryption Module”
* Click “Check for updates”
I do not know why it does not install on its own, like it should, but this triggers the installation and resolves the issue.
This leaves only Mozilla Firefox out of order. -- Still trying to figure out the cause.
Has Google blacklisted Mozilla Firefox and Vivaldi Browser for Linux?
It does not matter what Linux distro I install. A fresh install equals the same outcome:
"Widevine Content Decryption Module provided by Google Inc."
Does not install.-- WTF?! 🤔
Today, Milos and Les Violons du Roy play #Vivaldi #Couperin #Purcell and more in New York https://www.worldconcerthall.com/en/schedule/milos_and_les_violons_du_roy_play_vivaldi_couperin_purcell_and_more_in_new_york/78369/ #wch
Well, my code-level support ticket was picked up by Apple, and I think I have my answer — it looks like I'll have to sell my upcoming app Browser Actions outside the App Store after all.
On the one hand, it sucks, on the other hand… Yeah, it still kinda sucks, but it’s no end-of-app event.
A privacy incident affected our Snapshot test users in versions 6.4.3160.25 through 6.4.3160.30 for desktop.
This issue, goes well beyond Flatpak, where the issue was originally discovered.
When installing the binary for either Vivaldi Browser or Mozilla Firefox, the results remain the same on both Linux distros (Universal Blue and Ultramarine Linux).
Neither browser on either Linux distro can play DRM content on a fresh installation of the OS and browser.
2 Linux distros have the same bug with the same 2 web browsers.
It would appear both Universal Blue and Ultramarine Linux has the same issue.
On a fresh installation of either Linux distros, along with a fresh installation of either Mozilla Firefox or Vivaldi Browser, neither downloads nor installs Widevine.
This prevents them from playing DRM Content, for example, Netflix.
It doesn't help that I'm constantly going back and forth between the two programs because of #ADHD and the need for new stimulus. I get something working well, but I get bored of the regularity so I jump to something different for a little dopamine hit. But after a time, I start seeing all the imperfections that drove me nuts before, so I jump back. Repeat ad nauseam.
So I jump to #Firefox to protect the web and for the cleaner interface and better video streaming on my phone. But I get tired of the slow interface and page reloading. So back to #Vivaldi because I trust them and the mobile browser has great responsiveness, but video doesn't work as well and syncing can take 20-30 minutes. So I jump back... etc. etc.
#Vivaldi, on the other hand, doesn't handle fonts as well as Firefox. It is yet another Chromium browser, which doesn't help break away from a Google-centric web. The interface has a lot going on (which is customizable, yes), but I'm used to my current layout and I like it that way. Sync is painfully slow and less reliable than any other browser I use. Mail and RSS readers still feel primitive compared to Thunderbird. Sometimes the interface feels like they half-ass things. If I go to the "X" to close the window, it overlaps my tabs, which looks amateurish. I've almost never gotten useful info from the forum and the mechanism for suggesting features is hell on the #ADHD user.
Being able to load pages in the sidebar is really nice. Having a built-in tracker and ad blocker is nice on Android, where you can't add extensions. It's much faster and more responsive than #Firefox even on my cheap phone. Tab groups really helps keep things organized. Providing things like a Mastodon instance and blog platform is really cool.
Firefox feels sluggish on my phone. I don't like that it refreshes pages every time I switch, even if it's just for a second to check something. The desktop browser just locked up on me a minute ago.
But, I like the way fonts render way more than with Chromium browsers. I like that the interface is pretty minimalist. I like that the screen capture tool will recognize individual elements which makes getting screen caps of, say, Mastodon posts really easy. It remembers where I was on PDFs.
I really like Thunderbird as a mail client (though my old #Microsoft #Hotmail accounts can check emails but not send them, for some reason). I love the simple HTML viewing. It's way better than other clients like Vivaldi's built-in client or #KMail.
#Vivaldi デスクトップにセキュリティバージョンアップ来てる :vivaldia_5:
Any plan to progress on open sourcing #vivaldi, or is this https://vivaldi.com/blog/technology/why-isnt-vivaldi-browser-open-source/ still the official position of the #vivaldi team?
Everyone would definitely benefit from more competition in the #privacy and #security conscious browser space (which is essentially only #firefox today) and #vivaldi has the potential to be a fantastic contender!
Anyone else having issues with #Vivaldi on #Mac where it briefly hangs when clicking any link to upload a file? I couldn't upload an avatar to my profile here, nor could I upload plugins to #WordPress.
#VivaldiWebBrowser says it's up to date (6.4.3160.44), but before I disable my extensions for trouble shooting I figure I'd check and see if this was an issue for anyone else.
After about two weeks of testing #Vivaldi, I have to say, I notice that it's significantly slower than my Chrome. Makes me think about the whole thing again.
#Vivaldi on Manifest v3, webRequest, and ad blockers :vivaldi:
I've been using #vivaldi browser on my Mac10.13 system until today when it crashed.
I discovered late that it doesn't support High Sierra.
I've enjoyed the ride, but it looks like I'll have to switch to Firefox.
@Bopson Lisek to dla mnie jedyna przeglądarka obsługująca rozszerzenia na Android. A kilka z nich jest must-have. Np. niezatrzymywanie YouTube jak gaszę ekran i chcę słuchać dalej audycji.
(video background play fix).
Opera dla mnie jest ok, mam zainstalowaną na laptopie, choć z chromiumowych częściej korzystam z #Vivaldi. Jest tworzony przez osoby pracujące wcześniej nad #Opera, gdy ta pracowała na swoim silniku jeszcze. Dawne czasy.
Not having an option to import and export bookmarks
If I want to save them offline, I still gotta rely on Bromite/Cromite, else I gotta use Mozilla and Vivaldi's sync things to do it.
On Vivaldi's Bookmarks on Android page, in their (Import bookmarks)[https://help.vivaldi.com/android/android-bookmarks/android-bookmarks/#Import_bookmarks] section, they say it's "unfortunately not possible to import bookmarks directly from another browser app on an Android device".
If it's about getting bookmarks from another browser's storage of bookmarks, then I can believe it. But at least show an option for people who prefer to manually import them!
If it's a Google restriction thing not letting you put in the option, it would be nice if that were confirmed!
Might have to go ahead with Cromite!
Maybe start getting off of Chrome if you’re still using it? https://arstechnica.com/gadgets/2023/11/google-chrome-will-limit-ad-blockers-starting-june-2024/
FireFox is great and I’ve also been very happy with #vivaldi (and they have committed to support ad blockers: https://vivaldi.com/blog/manifest-v3-webrequest-and-ad-blockers/).
The "share directly to the reading list" feature is something I've been begging for for a while! So happy to see #Vivaldi implementing it!
Been coming for a while but Google's finally putting a (vague) pin in the date for shutting down most tracker-blocking plugins (e.g. #uBlockOrigin) in #Chrome: Sometime in 2024.
Note that if this goes how Google plans, it will also kill tracker blocking in Chrome variants like #Vivaldi & #Edge.
Meanwhile they're working to make as many pages as feasible incompatible with Firefox, but for now, at least, Firefox is a viable alternative.
It's really a pain to see how #Firefox is stuggling in general. I moved to #Vivaldi for a day or two, and from the font rendering, to the speed, all seems to be more polished. It's only small little things and details but overall, you feel the difference.
However, #Firefox remains the best for the emoji support, especially on Windows where it automatically changes all the flags with the Twemoji font which is something that all browser should do on Windows.
Anyway... #Firefox till the end !
I've seen some privacy folks shilling #Vivaldi. Perhaps it needs to be said that any project that has 1 line of proprietary code is by definition unverifiable, and thus unknowable which, to me, makes it ultimately untrustable. You *cannot* know that Vivaldi is not doing something with your data. Which for something as wide ranging and monolithic as a #browser, to me, is unacceptable. "Just trust me bro" is not an acceptable axiom when it comes to true #privacy.
Du coup j'ai installé #Vivaldi. Au premier démarrage il m'a demandé si je voulais bloquer les pubs et trackers. Et c'est une entreprise à but lucratif !
Si #Mozilla était vraiment pour un web libre et ouvert, ils mettraient uBlock Origin d'office au démarrage de Firefox.
Le pire : Vivaldi, que je pensais plus lourd que FF, est en fait plus véloce.
‣ slow UI;
‣ confusing options (e.g., it's difficult to set a search engine to be the same one everywhere);
‣ diverges from Chrome a lot, many features I don't need, while not implementing common-sense stuff, like a history sync that works for all pages, or useable vertical tabs;
‣ weird bugs (e.g., extension shortcuts don't work unless you set them to “global”);
‣ still hasn't updated to the latest Chrome 119, and this latency may mean exposure to security issues.
ICYMI: @Vivaldi is now on #Flathub thanks to the work by Vivaldi team member @ruario. It's currently considered "not officially endorsed or supported by Vivaldi Technologies" but hopefully we will see that change and become the preferred way of getting #Vivaldi on #Linux in the future? That'd be pretty dope!
Either way, one less layered package on my #Onyx install, so I'll consider that a win!
Two things about #Vivaldi today.
First, Vivaldi is now available on #Flathub!! If you're a Vivaldi and Flathub user, today is your day!
Second, vivaldi.social is one year old today! Congratulations @Vivaldi on one year in the Fed! Here's to many more!
EDIT: it's here!
Vivaldi web browser is now available on Flathub! https://www.omgubuntu.co.uk/2023/11/vivaldi-web-browser-flathub
Vivaldi Web Browser is Coming to Flathub
Fans of the Vivaldi web browser may be excited to hear it’s coming to Flathub officially. A crop of recent code commits indicate the Chromium-based, closed-source web browser is preparing to arrive on Flathub, becoming the next big-name software vendor to adopt Flatpak and Flathub as a primary way for Linux users to install their wares. Vivaldi vying to join the ranks of developers embracing Flatpak and Flathub is not a surprise, and comes hot on the heels of messaging platform Discord being verified (even prior to verification, the Discord racked up millions of installs through Flathub). A wide range :sys_more_orange:

#Vivaldi のプライベートウインドウのゴースト君のボクサーパンツいいな。まさにプライベートな領域… 🩲 👻
I've just remembered one major thing that was bothering me in @Vivaldi for quite some time.
It's about how address bar auto-complete feature is working for some time.
Right after release and for several years everything was fine and I've used it like any other browser and was very glad about how it worked.
But some time ago (a ~year?) they changed something in the algorithm and since then MOST of good experience with address bar is broken.
I didn't try to research what exactly is wrong yet because I mostly use speed dial, but when I'm not it's frustrating.
Here's one of my scenario examples:
1. I want to open Google Translate.
2. It's in the history and it's the most popular resource which starts with "tra" in my history.
3. I type "tra" and it's not even there.
4. I type "tran" and there's still nothing helpful. See screenshot 1.
5. Only when I type "transl" Google Translate will be selected as default autocomplete option and I could hit enter to go there.
I've tried to rearrange drop-down menu priority in Settings -> Address Bar, but it couldn't return me the same experience I had before THAT update.
One more ridiculous example I experienced some time ago. I have my own Gitea where I store my source code.
I was talking with @blue about configuring self-hosted CI for our repositories and opened Vivaldi to show him example from my repos.
1. I typed "git."
2. I've got @blue's Gitea as default choice instead of mine. See screenshot 2.
And it's still there! I didn't need to visit Blue's Gitea first to make Vivaldi suggest it by default.
It's like Vivaldi continuously tries to make me angry with it's autocomplete suggestions by making me type more to get what I need.
It's not something that'll make me switch from Vivaldi right away, but it's very frustrating. Especially considering the fact that before some specific update it was working perfectly for me.
one thing I really value is how Microsoft Edge seamlessly syncs browsers and history/content across devices in ways that other browsers promise to but never quite deliver on. I quit Chrome about 3 years ago because amazingly devtools kept shitting the bed and it made development impossible at the time. Maybe I should try #Vivaldi again? I used it about ten years ago to be different and it was quick and clean.
