The Internet is always watching you.
That’s a fact quite a few of us either don’t know or ignore. But there are billions of trackers across the many websites on the Internet, and all of them are collecting some kind of data about the users that visit their sites. However, several organizations have developed tools to block these trackers, and one of the most useful is now incorporated into the Vivaldi web browser.
The latest version of Vivaldi, version 3.0, uses DuckDuckGo’s Tracker Radar to improve its tracker blocking features. The browser uses a blocklist powered by the Tracker Radar tool to prevent most of the third-party trackers from harvesting user data. The result is a faster web experience with improved privacy protection.
Of course, no tracker blocker by itself is perfect. While the incorporation of DuckDuckGo’s Tracker Radar is a boon for privacy-conscious users, it’s not a cure-all. Pairing the inherent tracker blocker with Chromium extensions like uBlock Origin covers more bases. Just remember to whitelist sites you want to support. Consider adding Notebookcheck to that list as well. We’d appreciate it.
