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!

Whoa, you seem to have gone off in a tangent!

My browser doesn’t hack anything. You don’t seem to know what hacking means and I’m not going to get into explaining that now.

It simply SCRAPES (<-- irrelevant to hacking), and scraping is actually covered by law if the elements pinched (scraped) are for “personal use”.

Of course, I cannot monitor what a scraper does with the goods it grabs but it falls outside my responsibility.

For example, Peter may be a genuine student who wants to use a scraped image of a flower in his assignment (he is covered by law) or Julie wants to use a scraped image of a flower in her flower shop website (she is NOT covered by law).

You get the drift...

Yeah OK... users call it snipping and programmers call it scraping.

Here’s how scraping works in simple English:

1. The browser issues a request to display someone’s website in a browser window.

2. The website responds OK and sends a copy of their script for the browser to display.

3. A browser User then issues a “scrape request” through a browser function.

4. The browser creates a second copy of the website script it already has, but this time modified to facilitate the scrape.

5. The user pulls out an image with drag & drop into Ms Word or Ms Publisher.

That’s it… no hacking involved.

It’s no different to music or movies. The recorder will record for you at your request and if it’s for personal enjoyment then you’re covered by law, but if you plan to screen the recorded movie in a public theater then you’re breaking the law. Same thing with Internet scraping…

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.


Right. But they also have Extensions where other developers can add that "unethical" or other niche functionality. If you are trying to beat Chrome on features then you need to beat this: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/category/extensions here is an example: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/deta ... idjblideca

Well you can’t beat native support.

And who is gonna find, download, install, setup, and learn all those different extra programs?

Tell someone like MrFromMg (your average non technical user) to do all that and he won’t know what you’re talking about. He is "the masses".

These days it’s not uncommon for people to have more than one browser because they may like some features from the one and some from the other.

My browser won’t necessarily replace existing loved browsers but I’m confident that those who try my browser will not want to remove it. It’s gonna prove to be too valuable to lose…

Who doesn’t want to pry at a facebook account without logging on or creating an account with FB? They all do… especially women!

Who doesn’t want to be able to go to Pinterest without an account and view and pinch all the images there no sweat?

Once they taste my powerful sneaky functions they’ll love it! It’ll be newfound power in their hands they won’t want to lose…

Here’s another one for the more technical people…

Who doesn’t want to write his own HTML apps or Intranet front end and have access to full file paths on their domain instead of getting that stupid “fakepath” returned as well as being able to add your HTML apps on the main menu for easy access?

You’d have to be crazy not to appreciate this browser’s sensible behavior when the rest are treating you like a criminal on your own domain!
