Vivaldi for Android: Update to block cookies

Vivaldi is one of the best browsers for Android and it has just been updated to version 3.8, which comes from the hand of interesting news. Obviously we highlight this cookie blocker, which we will tell how it works below, but there are still more news that we must highlight.

Vivaldi: fast browser with ad blocking

What’s new in the Vivaldi update

Among them, it has a completely renewed interface to change the browser’s own language, which after this latest update has over 41 languages ​​from around the world. Previously, Vivaldi adapted to the language configured in our Android, but from this menu we can configure the one we want independently. Thus, even if we have the mobile in a certain Vivaldi language It can be configured so that, by default, it has another one.

A section to highlight is also that of the embedded notes– A unique feature that allows you to jot down ideas or make lists in the browser itself. If you use the Vivaldi sync system, you will be able to access your notes from the desktop browser (and vice versa). To see your notes, tap on the Panels button, at the bottom of the screen, and then on the Notes icon, at the top.

Another addition at the UI level is a new shortcut to get back to the home page more quickly. From the settings we can configure the bottom bar of Vivaldi so that, in a single press, we return to the home page of the browser. This is an optional function, so we can activate or deactivate it at will.

How the cookie blocker works

However, the most striking function is that of ‘Cookie Crumbler’, a feature that allows block cookie dialogs on web pages. allows agile browsing, without the inconvenience of unwanted advertising. The blocker is disabled by default, but it can be easily activated through the shield icon displayed on the left side of the address field (or from the configuration options).

We know how annoying cookies can be, because of the space they occupy on the screen and because we have to accept something that in principle we are not predisposed. When browsing the different web pages, they are obliged to indicate that they use a certain number of cookies, a mandatory message by the GDPR regulation. With the new Vivaldi feature these dialogues can be blocked, something that will significantly improve the browsing experience.
