Vivaldi removes the big online nuisance and wonders how Google will react to this

Norwegian websites with cookies must, as an EU country, have the GDPR box in place. It is mandatory, and if the rules are not followed, the fines will come.

Version 3.8 will be launched tomorrow Norwegian time
But it has been a nuisance for users to such an extent that browser extensions remove them, and now also the Norwegian browser Vivaldi.

The upgraded browser (3.8) will be launched tomorrow at 09:00 and will be available for desktops as well as Android.

The most important news is that we have built in an opportunity to block the alerts you constantly encounter about making choices related to cookies. We call it the Cookie Crumbler.

Cookie Crumbler is activated from Settings> Privacy> Tracker and Ad blocking> Manage Sources.

What will Google say about this?
Odland says that they have now also blacklisted FLoC, "Google's profiling technology", as he refers to it, and adds: "it will be exciting to see how Google responds to this in practice until 2022".
