Re: Skipping the advertisements in web browsers.

One other serious problem with Vivaldi which will only have a negative impact on users of screen readers is that the buttons from the toolbar as well as the address bar are rendered at the top of the page and are accessible with the virtual cursor. This was once a problem with Brave but they have thankfully corrected this. We just need to reach out to Vivaldi to report it.

I will say, though, that if anyone chooses to use Brave, Vivaldi, or any other ad-blocking and security-focused browser, there will be occasions where certain websites just do not play well with them.

My partner uses Brave almost exclusively, but his online banking simply will not work under Brave.  You need to be occasionally ready to punt to another browser.  And it's seldom the ad-blocking, but the higher security restrictions, that cause things to trip-up.

Just like there are occasions where you need to use a screen reader other than your preferred one, the same is true when it comes to web browsers.
