The Classic Browser feedback...

Feel free to talk about anything that you want.

At a quick glance how do you find the appearance of this browser?

I think it sucks big time!

About 6 months ago I partnered with a Chinese company to produce a wifi extender mounted on a usb interface...glad to say today I have a working prototype...this is huge as I can extend my wifi range mounted on a power bank or on a usb charge...needless to say my window of opportunity is tiny...in australia paterns do not mean much outside the country....but living in a block compomising of 500 mil people is a different ball game....
Also working on a power bank with wifi built in with usb to act as a media centre...a wireless access point, wifi repeater and a media centre....as an access point and media center 10 people can stream 10 different movies on their devices...pretty cool..nearly there...applying technology with limited resources...

GR, Google making chromium open source doesn't mean they stopped developing it or that they rely on volunteers to evolve the engine of their browser. Most of the main devs working on Chromium are Google employees and it is their job... they aren't doing it for free. And it is not just Google. What about Microsoft for example? Don't you think they are desperate to regain market share? Anyway... all the best. I look forward for when you give to others to try it out, some people here will apparently volunteer!

Thanks GR. I managed to print on Chrome for the first time in months, albeit a longer route than IE. When I book a parcel through DMO using IE all I dd after entering recipients details and parcel dimensions is click on "process" and it would be print, with Chrome I have to select print and then the Eltron. At least I'm printning though. Thanks a lot :wink:

For this reason I’m prepared to go to extremes to gain a little edge here and there, while Google couldn’t care less and will settle for safety because they are already successful.

So to answer your question (because I don't think I did earlier), I’m not cleverer than Google engineers… but far more desperate! :lol:


Yeah exactly,

So without the technical Jargon, just keep it simple, what is the selling point of your browser. can you list 5 or 10 in bullet point format?

For example, does it

> Burn 15lbs of fat in 21 days without sweating?
> Psychometrically find me my soulmate and bring her to me?
> make me a 1000% return in 24 hours gauranteed?

But then what are you going to do once you capture that slice? What else is in your product catalogue or backend that you can sell to them?

Well for instance, powerful scraping (the pinching of website goodies) will be one of my selling points Max.

Scraping is something I know Google can’t do because it would be considered unethical of them to add scraping features so I’ve taken advantage of this to the full.

A special addendum for some readers at this point:

Before Sotos or someone else comes along and accuses me of accusing Google Engineers of not being (programmatically) good enough to scrape, I’m not saying here they don’t know HOW to but that they’ll REFRAIN from doing it.


Now imagine you’re on National Geographic’s website and you see some great penguin pictures and you’d like to have them because the teacher is expecting you to hand in your penguin assignment by Monday… well with image scraping you can easily grab a copy of them to use in your assignment.

Or imagine my wife (a Greek literature teacher) who has to write new assignments for student tests all the time coming across a great ancient Greek poem she’d like to use in her lecture… well with text Scraping she can easily grab a copy of it. Let’s suppose highlighting is not allowed on this website so she can’t copy it using the usual method.

So with this powerful feature we can pinch audio, video, images, text, links, and even script for our personal use.

Here’s another feature Google would never add to Chrome that mine has… you go onto a site like Pinterest or Facebook but you haven’t got an account or can’t be bothered to log on, but you don’t want to be deprived of seeing what’s there but they won’t let you because this dark banner slowly takes over the screen and you can’t see what’s underneath so you're annoyed!

Well, if you use what I call in my browser “Special View”, you can use your right-click to kill any banner or any obstacle getting in your way. Items you click on will vanish like magic allowing full viewing access to that restricted website.

So apart from the usual/standard functions like text-translate, print, text-search, image-capture, zoom, etc we all have, I have many new powerful features that the big boys would never include in case they are labeled unethical by the public.

Btw, I’m open to IDEAS people… is there something you’d like to be able to do when viewing websites that you can’t?

Does something annoy you?

Tell me about it and maybe I can add such a feature in the browser! :D

I’d love to get good ideas and I’m prepared to break *some* rules if it will help getting a foothold in the market. :wink:

So your selling point is an integrated snipping tool and the ability to see behind the virtual wall of any "membership" site?

If this is really true, then you also have to consider how you will be percieved and how far you could go with this.

It sounds like the core of your business is about developing hacking software. If that is the case, you would make more money, marketing it as such and selling copies of it, because I dont think you have anything else to monetize the browser on the back end. You might make a lot of money selling hacking software but sooner or later people will take notice and probably try to put you in prison.
