Tracker and ads statistics, and automatic element hiding in the blocker – Vivaldi Android Browser snapshot 1882.3

This snapshot adds information for blocked ads and trackers to the shield icon popup, and automatically hides blocked elements.

Take a look at the changelog for a full overview of the changes and let us know what you think.

Differences to Beta/Final

The purpose of these snapshots is to allow our users a chance to preview upcoming changes, and to help us ensure the quality of our latest fixes and improvements, before we add them to a Beta (or Final). If you would prefer something that was already widely tested, stick with the main Vivaldi Android package (currently in Beta).

When testing a Snapshot, it is a good idea to review the changelog (below). Try out the changes and let us know your thoughts in the comments section or directly in the Play Store. When commenting in the Play Store, remember that it is helpful to mention the version you were testing with.
