    Is it possible that Vivaldi os releasing their own extension platform and therefore Chrome extensions will no longer be compatible with future versions of Vivaldi. One of the features that is missing is the ability to dock inspect element to the bottom of a website like Chrome and also the ability to sync settings across your PC and devices.

    If they could only let us remove the Vivaldi button and completely remove Panel then I’d consider using it.
