Vivaldi’s Razer Chroma integration, Google to restrict ad blocking Chrome extensions

More fun with Vivaldi 2.5

We’re happy and proud that there has been so much in the media about our first-of-its-kind integration with Razer Chroma! We did promise it will be wild, thrilling and immersive! 😜 Enabling Chroma simply adds another dimension to browsing – a game-changer for gamers and gadget lovers!

We’ve been asked countless times how this integration came together so we challenged dev Petter Nilsen who worked on it to spill the beans. Long story short, it was a user that suggested it. Tell us you’re not surprised! 🙌

Razer Chroma is the world’s largest lighting ecosystem for gaming devices and you don’t have to look far to find great coverage of this unique integration. If you know gamers, here’s a handful of articles that hit the mark: Engagdet, ZDNet, CNET! 😍 Please share!

We particularly loved this video by Tech Block – a guy discovering Vivaldi and the Razer Chroma integration for the first time!

Google to restrict modern ad blocking Chrome extensions 

Back in January, Google announced a proposed change to Chrome’s extensions system that would stop current ad blockers from working efficiently. In response to the overwhelmingly negative feedback, Google is standing firm on Chrome’s ad blocking changes, sharing that current ad blocking capabilities will be restricted to enterprise users.

Our position has not changed. For anyone asking, please let them know that we’re continuing to watch this situation closely – a lot can still change. It’s our intention to continue to support content blockers. Our mission will always be to ensure users have the choice.

As always, a big thank you for helping us spread the word about Vivaldi! 😍
