Vivaldi 3.8 now available with built-in cookie crumbler, redesigned panels, and more
Vivaldi 3.8 has arrived earlier today on all platforms, including Android. However, desktop users get the most important changes, focused on an improved web browsing experience from all points of view, as usual. According to Jon von Tetzchner, this release "offers relief from annoying cookie dialogs and Google’s FLoC, an invasive privacy technology" and also rebuilds the Panels feature. On top of these changes, Vivaldi 3.8 also adds quick bookmarking options.
The built-in cookie crumbler allows the user to simply block the service that asks for consent in a similar manner to tracker and ad removal. For now, this feature is now enabled by default, so to give it a try you have to go to Settings — Privacy — Tracker and Ad blocking — Manage Sources — Ad blocking sources and there, you need to enable the "Remove cookie warnings" lists.
Android users who enjoy Vivaldi will be able to change the language of the browser's interface without bothering about the OS language setting, but the mobile version of the browser also comes with the aforementioned cookie crumbler, as well as an option to access the start page from the address bar.
