NO .. don't do that, those instructions SWAP Chrome support to Vivaldi (You loose Chrome support) .. I have one that ADDS Vivaldi support.

I'll post it in a bit.

You added an edit at the bottom of the post that just added Vivaldi to the list of browsers, not replacing Chrome - works a treat too :).

I have a version of ICE that supports Vivaldi (and still FF, Chromium, Chrome) if you're interested mac ?

Got one for Brave yet ?  I need the space ...





j/k  -  All I use Brave for is printing coupons.  Don't ask me why.  I dunno.   :-\

Just as well.  Brave freaks me out, at some level.

It's too pretty, or something.

Can't put a finger on it ...

Hi VinDSL,

You have to be brave to use Brave.  Brave browser lasted on my computer about 10 minutes.  I couldn't do anything with it.  The browser for us to keep our eyes on is Epic browser, but right now it does not support Linux.  There's still Iridium browser.  They're decent enough to warn us about the lag time between a Chromium to Iridium release.

Quote
Our ambition is to get builds for Debian, Ubuntu, openSUSE, fedora, Windows and OS-X a couple of days after a new release of Chromium.
To achieve this, we need help from individuals and organisations, who have the same intention. Currently there are weeks between a new release of Iridium and Chromium.
Please take this into consideration for your personal usage of the browser as you might be at risk when surfing unknown and potentially dangerous websites!
We feel, that as an application browser or as browser for trusted websites, this is acceptable.

Sometimes I wonder if the extensions we use are all they're cracked up to be. (Epic browser is not a big fan of extensions.)  A lot of these privacy oriented extensions can "read and change all the data on the websites you visit" (which is the same definition as spyware) the way that the browser did before.  Seems to me we're just just handing our data over from one company to another.  At the end of the day we have to trust that these companies that focus on extensions are genuinely working in our best interest.

This is a dated article about Chrome and our privacy, but the info contained within it is still valid, I believe.  Even though I only use one computer, I use the sync feature in Chromium and Chrome.  I really should be encrypting all my data across Google's servers but it's just a pain in the neck so I don't do it.  The other things we could do is to not save bookmarks, not use Gmail, etc. 

I get one medically related email from the UK each month.  I learn more from that email than from anything here in the States.  Well, it doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out that I, or perhaps a family member, has a medical condition.  Now, Google has that info.  Now if Uncle Sam has that info too, he sure hasn't shown me that he cares about it.  So there probably a profile on each of us somewhere.  But there's just too much data out there for it to be very important.  As an example I"ll guess that PCNetSpec, AndyInMokum, and murraymint probably drink tea --maybe throughout the day.  And they can probably guess that you, mac, rjm65, and I start our days with some coffee.  (Other than myself, I have no idea if any of this is really so.) Yeah, this data would be interesting, but does it matter?  I don't know.  I think we're swamped in data that doesn't really mean a whole heck of a lot.  I know it's a human right to have privacy, and I want more of it and not less, but a lot of this data is just plain useless for anything other than advertisements and sales.  I mention Yandex, I'll be looking at Russian dating services tomorrow in Peppermint.  I mention mac and I get offers for McDonald's coupons.  I mention tea, and I hope to see a reasonable offer on some Earl Grey tea soon --Twinings I might add!

I mentioned the price of printer ink recently in our forum and I got an advertisement from inkfarm.com the other day.  But, I'd still look on Amazon too, and emegra has suggested --and maybe even Ebay!  ;)

It might be interesting to do a comparison....

As a Firefox user I can't say that I've noticed simply posting content on say this forum changes my adverts (maybe a Chromium based browser thing ?) .. Google searches (and if I actually click an advert out of curiosity) is a completely different matter though .. I VERY quickly learned NOT to be curious and click an advert, as similar adverts then follow you for AGES ::)

I have noticed that watching anything on YouTube brings an onslaught of ads about whatever "they" think is related.   The same thing, of course, with searches.  You can bet you're always being "watched."   They know what you did last summer.  Ha!

I just encrypted all our data in Google with my sync password.  The message reads:

Quote
All data was encrypted with my sync password on January 31, 2017

It was quite simple to do.  I'm also down to one extension now --LastPass.  Blocking third-party cookies, encrypting our data, sending a "Do Not Track" request (which may or not be honored), using Safe Browsing Protection, not allowing sites to track our physical location, not allowing sites to use a plugin to access our computer, turning off MIDI devices to control aspects of our computer, using Chromium browser along with using Cisco's FamilySafe DNS and DNSCrypt behind a NAT and a software firewall, ought to be protection enough for any ordinary Joe and Jane using Peppermint. 

Phew!  ::)

Thanks, mac, for this thread.  It sure got me thinking this morning.  :)

Vivaldi support has now been added to ICE via an update .. as long as you have ICE version 5.2.4 you should be able to select Vivaldi as the backend for newly created SSB's (as log as you have Vivaldi installed, or the option will be greyed).

I found it to be a little too welcoming to JavaScript and lacking the features of Chromium such as built in script blocking and whitelisting.
