Despite what the video says about incognito mode in Chrome, private mode in Opera doesn't seem to cache favicons, not even if you bookmark the site. Entries for the sites and their favicons are not shown in the favicon file. (There are some exceptions in the file for default-provided speed dials though.)
As for clearing the favicon cache, I'm assuming Opera would just wait and inherit from Chromium whenever they decide to do something. But, it might be nice if Opera did like Brave. But, I think it'd be better to have an explicit option for favicons in the clear history dialog. Opera users love their favicons.
As for always fetching favicons fresh like Firefox does, that would be cool as a privacy option for Opera. Would be better if it was in Chromium though so other browsers could benefit from it.
Import Bookmarks and Settings
Go to Menu > File and select “Import Bookmarks and Settings” from the drop-down menu. You will see a pop-up window with a list of browsers to import from, as well as a list of settings you can move from another browser to Vivaldi, such as Bookmarks, Passwords, History and so on.
Hello again Oliver,
Thank you again for your assistance and reply.
I tried to find an "autoplay terminator" on Opera but did not find anything because most of them are about Youtube.
Nothing about DM (DailyMail.co.uk) !
To read DM, I will follow your advice by switching to Chromium or Chrome, with a heavy preference for Chromium.
I will let you know about my user experience with this McAfee extension.
Again, thank you for your concern.
@henriquepz I don't find the page that critical of Opera. For example, the page should be advertising Firefox more, such as in the extensions. The thing is though, they say that Chromium browsers have a lot more extensions (which is true), but I find it quite bizarre that they would let users know about that. I would have thought that they would have been very biased?
