From the moment they started developing it, we have voiced our concerns about this whether it was Floc or Topics, and have sought to fully disable it in Vivaldi. We never had any faith in the Topics API from the very start

Like I might go to a to form up a at most, once a week. I'm sure this amount of would only be effective if I were on the sites often enough to see the anyways. I get my on Mastodon so that kills the need of constantly using a for me.
For most normal users though, yeah i'd recommend them switching to to avoid this new tracking.
I made a blocklist of servers and hosts, for copy-paste into your hosts file. This to improve your and increase your web browsing . Do not apply this list if you are an SEO consultant: your tools will stop working.
Vivaldi unfortunately doesn't have a true portable version (but then again, neither does Ungoogled Chromium). Chromium-based does have a PAF, however. It shows the tracking features in the settings, but they're disabled by default. With Lite and the excellent added, it would seem to meet my needs for those few sites that don't work w/ Firefox. 2/2

It might be odd - but I didn't stop using Chrome a few years ago because I was concerned about their tracking - the last stroke was when they took away the shortcut "Ctrl+Shift+Q".
Google bakes an ad platform directly into Chrome Chrome now directly tracks users via a topic list
How did anyone NOT see this coming! Theyre like the biggest agency :blobfacepalm:
Frankly, Im surprised it took this long

Google Chrome's new "privacy Sandbox" is just a targeted advertising Scheme, and vivaldi plans to block the Topics API, which is the Heart of the Privacy Sandbox user-Tracking system completely. Click through for more details.
Personally I still recommend Firefox.
It's not as if they eben have the resources or need to find out if any customers are from outside their own ZIP code.
Even if everyone had static IPs allocated and a non-anonymized WHOIS that literally tells them the exact legal adress of every visitor, that would be absurdy

Chrome now directly tracks users, generates a "topic" list it shares with advertisers.
You will have seen a popup at some point if you are still using Chrome telling you that they want to enroll you in their privacy-preserving plan.
Treat the idea with the scorn it deserves. They are in fact trying to get you to agree to their tracking program.
You'll probably be using Firefox already if you care about that kind of thing though I guess.

I have Tor, but it isn't suitable for all things. Neither is FF Klar/Focus and IceCat. I found that Chrome was required for boarding passes for Westjet. It is in Insular (FOSS version of Island- isolated from all apps). So we make do with imperfect combinations. I also recommend Blokada from F-droid. No ads on android and blocked 200k trackers in a year.
