Vivaldi 2.12 Now Allows Managing Ad Blocker Lists (Snapshot 1854.5)

A new developer snapshot of Vivaldi, which represents the upcoming version 2.12, now allows managing subscription lists for the built-in Ad Blocker. As you may remember, Vivaldi 2.12 will include a native ad blocker tool, which is part of the tracker blocker feature of the browser.

Starting in Vivaldi Dev Snapshot 1848.4,  the user can set Tracker Blocker to

  • No Blocking
  • Block Trackers
  • Block Trackers and Ads

The tracking protection and ad blocking can be enabled globally for all web sites you visit, or can be turned on or off for individual web sites via the shield icon in the address bar.

In addition to the options mentioned above, it is now possible to add or remove the tracker blocking and ad blocking lists. There is a GUI for that.
