Maybe it is not official build, but maintened by Chromium Team. https://download-chromium.appspot.com/ You should be aware these are, as the description says, "raw" builds from the most recent version of the source trunk, and may be significantly less stable than the packaged builds you may be used to of Chromium for Linux distributions or of Chrome.

No, Chrome extensions cannot install other Chrome extensions. They also cannot install any software (i.e., viruses) on your computer without your action. Your main concern with extensions should be data privacy. See: How can I be sure that a Google Chrome extension isn't doing evil things? How do you do examine a Google Chrome extension before ...

I had the same issue where browsers would eventually lock up and often lead to blue screen crash. Someone suggested that it might be an overheating problem. I removed the CPU fan and there was a layer of dust on the CPU. Sure enough, after cleaning it off all issues were resolved.

have you tried? https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/open-with/ it adds a context menu item that runs your predefined program with the full url. so you don't even have to enter the page(youtube links and such).

Can you try querying directly from sqlite? While in the correct user profile directory you can use the following command to pipe the history to a text file or omit the dashes and quotes to have it print to terminal. sqlite3 places.sqlite "SELECT strftime('%d.%m.%Y %H:%M:%S', visit_date/1000000, 'unixepoch', 'localtime'),url FROM moz_places, ...

Does that mean that Opera's servers act as a proxy between the user and the website he is accessing? Yes. From their explanation, I think that the Opera server will fetch the webpages and send them to the user Thart's pretty much how proxies work. so the user's details(such as IP Address, browser version, Windows version etc...) wouldn't be ...

The website is using Geo-tags on the IP addresses to choose which site layout to provide. It's on their end. You may be out of luck unless you contact their support.

Not a shortcut via keyboard but still may solve your issue: Some mousepad drivers allow you to zoom via gesture (e.g. "un-pinching"). Go to Settings > Hardware and Sound > Mouse. If you have a Synaptics touchpad, there will be a "Device Settings" tab. The entry which mentions the touchpad should be highlighted. Then, click on "Settings" Source Another ...

Shift+drag the tab instead (simple drag-and-drop creates pinned site shortcuts instead of internet shortcuts). File menu (press Alt if it's not visible) > Send > Shortcut to desktop. Right-click the page > Create Shortcut.

Typically ctrl + scroll wheel would work, but in your case as explained on Lifehacker: In order to zoom in, you just press control (Windows) or command (Mac) and the + key. (Technically you're pressing the = key because you'd need to press shift to make a plus, but thinking of it as the + key makes more sense since it's zooming you in.) To zoom ...

Just below the Google search result (title of your interested link), there is an arrow which links you to the cached result. Click on 'cached', and the resultant page will display the actual link.

+1 for Bibhas answer (try searching with eg links www.duckduckgo.com :/ ). Surfraw can automatize that. It provides a fast unix command line interface to a variety of popular WWW search engines and other artifacts of power: Surfraw uses your prefered text or graphical browser to display the result. This can be customized via ~/.surfraw.conf (XDG's ...

The problem is more of a moral nature than technical. File a spam complain to the ISP. If in your contract it is not specified that they use these ads (while offering an ads free service), they have no right to spam you.

Add Blockers do actually typically reduce the bandwidth by not downloading the ads, so the suggestion is good. A web works by downloading the main html page, then all the resources directed in that page - particularly images etc. An ad blocker will prevent the downloading of these images from occuring, thus the bandwidth is never used. You have not ...

There are three ways to beat this: Only go to the https: version of the website. There are browser add ons that help you do this (e.g. HTTPS EveryWhere). This won't help you if the sites only have a http: version. Use a Virtual Private Network. There are many VPN providers available, probably some free ones as well. (More difficult) Trace the domain names ...

Yes. There are cookie manager extensions for Chrome that can alert you. REF "Vanilla Cookie Manager" at How to Block All Cookies Except for Sites You Use However I don't think it can detect the source page or script that tried to place a cookie.

Two solutions I found from this forum thread: You make a shortcut, right-click it, go in properties and add the --disable-update at the end of the the target field which would look like this: "C:\Program Files (x86)\Opera\launcher.exe" --disable-update and You can also use an environment variable to make Opera auto-updates stop. Go to ...

I am going to assume 1 of 2 scenarios and the a few solutions that fix both: Scenario 1) You have no option to manually install (from bank enrollment site) See if its possible to manually download it and install VIA Custom Install and uncheck/ disapprove install to undesired browsers. Scenario 2) You use the "Express Install" in which auto assume and ...

Safari Extensions are in: per-user: ~/Library/Safari/Extensions General "Netscape API" browser plug-ins are in: per user: ~/Library/Internet\ Plug-ins/ and system-wide: /Library/Internet\ Plug-ins/ Honestly, the problem with localized strings not found seems like corruption or a missing file within the Safari.app bundle.

window.open is only regarded as a popup when not initiated by a user action, including onclick. Related. If it is an advertisement and you have adblock software, you can add defining characteristics of the advertisement's url to your custom blacklist.

No. It is the next generation browser engine from Microsoft. Initially released for Windows 10 desktop/tablet but should also be released for Windows 10 Mobile. The intent is to eventually remove Internet Explorer with its Trident engine. However, this wont happen for a number of years since Trident supports a lot of backwards compatibility that Spartan ...

It's more of a networking thing so without access to the network configuration I'd say you should look at some parental control software. You'd just black list everything and set the warning redirect page to the site you want, not black listed of course.
