Its like you take the engine of a BMW and you add it to your own car body, electronics etc. The result could be good only if you are about as good or better than the Google engineers... and you are clearly not ;) So why would anybody bother with a crappier version of Chrome? You can do most of what you listed above with plugins. If this is for your own personal use then you can write just one plugin that does everything that you need. Some things don't even need a plugin ... like changing the default search engine can be done with a setting in Chrome.

No amigos, Chromium is not in Google’s hands but the PUBLIC Chromium project and is 100% configurable with like 500+ setup flags and memory management is entirely in your hands.

Chromium is a framework at the lowest levels so every Webkit browser including Chrome, are using it differently and thus behaving differently and offering different levels of user experience.

For example, Chrome is very busy with extra open ports transmitting your data over to agencies for a fee, promoting their wares in their e-shops, modifying search results and doing every other thing possible for their self interests while most unknown browsers are trying to deliver an honest and reliable browser that doesn’t want to sit on your couch and hug your wife!

Google is the main contributor in Chromium and it is not exactly the same as Webkit (Chromium is using Blink, a webkit fork). So basically you are telling me that you can do memory management of a browser and deliver better user experience than Google! :roll: And if you don't like Google then there is Opera which is also using the same engine and they are also experts in browsers... are you better than them also? Chrome doesn't transmit any data secretly. Whatever data it transmits like usage stats and crash reports, can be turned off in the settings.

We’ll talk in about a month when I make the first release. Then you can compare and scrutinize my browser all you want. :wink:

In the meantime, I’ve pressed on by completing the Chrome-favorites importing:

You should see my clever little Json to HTML converting function… it sucked up my 500 odd Chrome favorites in a fraction of a second and presented them in front of me in a tab in the form of nice orderly buttons ready to click and navigate! Cracking Firefox is gonna be harder though… I may look at that tonight. Edge is also gonna be interesting if they’ve abandoned the old easy method.

Flash plugin sorted too despite the confusing mess that exists in this area with NAPI/PAPIs and the like.

Just wait and see… I will catch up to Google's 1,000 employee and 10 years' of labour, in about a month or my name ain't what it is... 8)

Fasten your seatbelts boys and girls because the madman from Tseri is coming... :D

If you ever become that big (and I wish you luck), then please change your name - re-brand before it's too late.

Honestly! What on earth were you thinking?

I never said anything about becoming big but anyway...

If the world embraced something as stupid as “Google” (in some countries like Greece they need to gargle to pronounce it properly) then Bequer (basically Becker in French) can't be that hard or bad! :lol:

Mate, if you think you can circumvent Government Agencies, especially those from the 5 Nation Echelon network + Mossad, you're delusional. They don't need to cooperate with Facebook, Twitter, Google, Microsoft or Apple to know what you're looking at. They have super computers which are able to intercept your metadata from your IP address and from there even your emails can be hacked.

Apple is actually taking the US Government to court over protecting their customer's privacy. Their argument is that the US Government is in violation of its own Constitution and Bill of Rights. Nice to know there is one Corporation looking after the interests of their customers.

If you don't believe me, then just go for a drive at Agios Nikolaos in Cyprus.

This is where all your metadata is processed and deciphered.

But good luck to you anyway.

You ever wondered why so many perverts are getting caught with looking at Child Pornography etc?

How do the police know which door to knock to confiscate computers. The answer to this is that law enforcement are notified by Government Agencies.

They do look at things like that, whilst looking for terrorist cells and their supporters.

But chances are, they couldn't give a stuff about the average user. Only certain things grab their attention and then they have a closer look into your private habits.

Look at it this way. These "Agencies" (there are many of them working together), had Merkel and virtually her entire cabinet tapped. Australia, did the same thing to Indonesia and both countries withdrew their diplomats over the entire incident when the Australian Signals Directorate got caught with its pants down.

Do you think Germany doesn't encrypt Merkel's computer and phone?

The same Agencies are probably sitting behind a computer decrypting Anastasiade's grocery shopping list as we speak. Especially with the Egyptair Hijacking! They Echelon Agencies would have known about the hijacking before Anastasiades and Egypt knew.

The only way to protect your privacy is to go OFFLINE. but even then I wonder if that is accurate.

Perhaps Get Real wants to make a browser where he can browse anonymously without all his data being collected by Google e.t.c

Why not just add an Add Blocker plug in, because that is the reason Google collect data?

If it's adds, it is easy working your way around that.

If you think Google manipulate the search results, then use another browser. There are hundreds of them which claim to not do that.

If it's for privacy from ISP and Government - not a hope in hell.
