It seems vivaldi has not removed the EV certificate badge from address bar, like google chrome & edge has done. Opera and firefox( throught about:config) still has this feature

Opera has less tweaking than vivaldi has, something to do with promoting google as default search and only allow other search engines to work throught address bar

Firefox for me has always been slower than chromium browsers, thought vivaldi had some very slow working versions compared to other chromium browsers

But it seems i found new main browser, over firefox & opera ....sticking into vivaldi now...thanks for keeping EV certificates visible, while having access to chrome web store
