That message is for using Google Services (Google Search, Gmail, Analytics etc) it is NOT for using Chrome. You can get that same message when you visit google.com (or any of their other websites) no matter what browser you are using. You can disable features in your browser (e.g. cookies) to increase your privacy... but that can cause many websites to not work properly. If you want maximum privacy then you should use a browser like TOR. This browser uses the tor network and in addition to the other privacy features it also hides your IP and location (but this comes at the expense of speed) https://www.torproject.org/

There is another one here called epic browser.

I think Get Real might be trying to do the same thing as this.

I don't understand why you are attacking him. Let him go through the learning experience since it's something he is obviously really into.

No I don't agree. I can go to http://www.google.com/ or https://www.google.com/ via my browser no problems, but I can no longer use Chrome (the browser) for anything unless I complete this proceedure (<-- a unavoidable dialog box like an alert() box).

Fuck Chrome... here's how I want my browser to be:


The Bequer Browser vs. Chrome:


1. Uses the latest Chromium engine, the same graphics rendering engine as Chrome.

2. Low memory usage even with multiple tabs. (frequent "Garbage Collection" triggering ensures that)

3. No crashes (You'll never see another "Oh snap!" again... ever!)

4. No privacy heckling (or any other heckling for that matter)

5. No privacy violations... no ports are opened and no data transmitted by our program.

6. No surfing history... all session history is blown away when you exit as default behavior.

7. No threats to XP and Vista users... this browser will always serve them regardless.



The Bequer Browser's unique features:


1. Web TV - Online TV broadcasting stations at your fingertips. (With optional update from our site)

2. Web Radio - Online Radio broadcasting stations at your fingertips. (With optional update from our site)

3. Web Tunes - Your favorite U-Tubes in a nice menu at your fingertips. Easy management included.

4. Web Sites - Popular (non sponsored) websites at your fingertips. (With optional update from our site)

5. Easily imports favorites from Chrome/FF/Edge (and even updates the importing in case you're running multiple browsers)

6. The ScrapPad - You're gonna love this! It's like the clipboard only you can see and edit the whole thing.

7. Multi-Search - Type ONCE and watch up to 10 GENUINE search engines (with unique algorithms) work for you!

8. Local Stuff - Easily link to images/videos/music from your computer in your clickable menus if desired.

9. Very easy setup options and customizable appearance.

10. Extendable - You can write your own HTML5 documents (with Disk I/O provided by the browser) that load in a tab and appear as main menu options.

No problem with the learning experience... thats great. But does he have to make ridiculous claims that he can do memory management better than Google and prevent the browser from ever crashing? :roll:

That message is shown by the Google website, not the browser. If you keep seeing that message then maybe you have cookies disabled (or you clear the cookies after every session). Basically Google.com shows you that message and then adds a cookie that the message was already shown to you so it will not show it to you again. If you keep deleting the cookies (or you have them turned off) then it keeps showing you the message.

Thanks for the entertaining link… I became interested in this Epic but I soon realized it's a load of garbage because upon attempting to download their archive I noticed that they foolishly use the USER-AGENT string to detect your OS and automatically assumed that my machine (browser with modified USER-AGENT) isn't Windows so they came back with a…

“We're sorry, Epic is only available for Mac/PC. Stay in touch and we'll email you as more versions of Epic are released.”

And then some failed PHP script/url tried to kick in and failed!

They should simply have standard links to the various OS/s they support and let the user click on whatever version he wants but they tried to be clever.

What a bunch of amateurs! :roll:

I also read that their browser doesn’t have an address field (served as a selling point)… probably because they don’t know how to dynamically set an onload event to an iframe which would be necessary if the iframe is to return the title and address info so as to constantly update your address field as the user keeps navigating on the page.

Indeed an Epic failure… :lol:

Whatever… nobody should be using cookies in this day and age.

They can easily use the HTML5 safe and recommended way (sessionStorage) to store and retrieve allowable data but they refuse to because it restricts them from STEALING information they shouldn't be getting!

Chrome crashes not because they know no better, but because they fuck around with your ports. Their crashes are due to their greed and hunger for global domination.
