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.
Managing Ad Blocker Lists
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.
To Manage Ad Blocker Lists in Vivaldi,
- Press Ctrl + F12 and go to Privacy on the left.
- On the right, click on Manage Rule Lists.
- Turn on (check) or off (uncheck) the desired subscription.
- Use the + and - buttons to add more lists or remove existing entries.
There are individual lists for tracker blocking and ad blocking. The lists already include the popular Easy List subscription, and a tracker blocking list by DuckDuckGo enabled by default. There's also a EasyPrivacy list that is not enabled by default.

Super, thanks Sergey! One step closer to one less plug in. :)
Yep. You are reading my mind. That is really great to have the ability to connect external rule lists.
