I honestly think that I would continue (as of now) to use DuckDuckGo Privacy Essentials and Adblock Plus on my daily driver just because I like the finer grain control that the extensions themselves have.

That being said, the built-in tracking blocker and ad blocker is very nice for my other PCs where I just like to get them set up and destroy them often.

That depends. Google has put the Chromium 81 update on hold for the time being and that affects us

That is fair but it is something we are actively working on an polishing, so while you might not switch yet, who knows what the future holds. Presuming Corona does not cause society to descend to chaos of course.

By the way, here is the next stage

Is there a way to force Vivaldi to find the login page of a Captive Portal / Walled Garden? I was at a coffee shop's wifi that has some terms to agree to before it connects to public internet; This page wouldn't appear for me in Vivaldi, but when I opened Firefox, it had a message at the top, prompting me to login and which took me to the login page once I clicked on it. Is there a way to force Vivaldi to hunt for captive portal logins?

No answers specifically for Vivaldi, but most captive portals will kick in if you pull up google.com

Try and load a pure http site. I always use elg.no in part because we own it but also because it is nice and short to type.

This will let you all have a better idea of what domains are being blocked

Side note: Quite funny that I get an ArchLinux icon when I post from an arm64 device because the user agent contains aarch64.

I cleared my history in Vivaldi, no special reason, but now here on LQ the "Forum Tools" and "Search this Thread" redirect me to like:
Code:
https://www.linuxquestions.org/questions/slackware-14/?nojs=1#goto_forumtools
instead of the little dropdown menu.

It has also affected other sites as well like gitlab used to have little icons that showed if it was a locked repo or if it was publicly accessible. Now they only show empty little boxes.

What happened or did I do?

EDIT:
I've tried wiping out the ~/.config/vivaldi and creating a new profile but neither have solved the issue.
