Sometimes it can be annoying to always see those welcome messages on websites asking for your permission to enable cookies. Of course, they were placed there to comply with the GDPR of the European Union, but they can be confusing and a nuisance at the same time. The Vivaldi browser has a new feature in your mobile browser that can help you with this and is appropriately called Cookie Crumbler. It comes in the latest Vivaldi browser update along with other things like multilingual support and the return of the homepage option.
Cookie Crumbler will hide those dialogs asking if you agree to cookies and at the same time automatically block them. It is part of the Ad and Tracker Blocker feature of the Vivaldo mobile app. To enable it, go to Settings> Privacy> Enable ad blocking and tracker> Manage sources> Ad blocking sources and then enable the “Clear cookie warnings” lists. Please note that some websites will not work or allow you to sign in if you do not accept cookies, so you will have to disable the Cookie Crumbler if you really need to access that site.
The update also brings a language change service that allows you to select the preferred language you want to use on the website. You can choose from the 41 languages that are enabled in the Vivaldi browser. These are for the times when you want to use a different language in the browser that is different from the default on your device. You can choose a different language by going to Settings> Language Settings> App Language.
The popular home page button disappeared from Vivaldi due to another popular request, the address bar at the bottom of the screen. But now, you will be able to get the Home button back if you want as you can turn it on and off from Vivaldi Menu> Settings> Appearance. At least you now have the option to have the home page icon in the address bar, only if you’ve placed it at the bottom.
You can update your Vivaldi mobile browser to version 3.8 to enjoy these new features. If you haven’t tried it yet, you can download it from the Google Play Store and the Android Uptodown store.
