Vivaldi 2.12 Receives Built-in Ad Blocker

Finally this has happened. The most customizable and user-friendly browser on the market, introduced a built-in Ad Blocker, in addition to its Tracker blocker feature.

The new feature extends Tracker Blocker, which now has a special option for that starting in Vivaldi Dev Snapshot 1848.4. The user can select between

  • 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. It is all under your control - the thing I really like in Vivaldi.

You can review changes in this Dev snapshot in detail by visiting the official announcement.

  1. Vivaldi is awesome
    Can you make a comparison benchmark of Firefox Quantum, Google Chrome, and Vivaldi?
    I used Vivaldi before but switched back to Firefox and Chrome again
    By your posts, I feel some new interest in it again
    I didn’t use Opera and Edge YET
