It’s talking about *your* surfing policy so the blocking is not at my end.

You’re probably blocking all http sites.

Not sure which browser this is though… the competition all look the same to me.

Seems like you are using fortiguard web filter, with a policy to block not rated websites. So it is not that GRs website is listed as dangerous, it is just not listed at all.

Thanks Sotos…

On a different note… Piratis takes the plunge and goes “secure” today! :lol:

What do you mean? It seems Piratis hasn't made any posts for ages... or is that something happening somewhere else?

:shock: Unbelievable!

After the abysmal releases of Chromium engines: series 61, 62, and 63…

At long last we have a Chromium engine version that is free of most bugs, blazingly fast, and most amazingly… :shock: they have finally fixed the container resize property after DECADES!

:shock:

Now you can resize a container to a size smaller than you started with… 0px even until the container vanishes!

Time to start adding a min-width and min-height to all resizable containers boys! :lol:

To give you an idea, I can now minimize this comment box in which I'm typing this message, to the point where its like 1mm x 1mm! :lol:

Ladies and gents… going back to engines, the magic number is: v64.0.3282.119

It passed ALL my stringent tests!! :)

You heard it here first on the beloved CF!

The Classic browser will be released TOMORROW with this new version among other updates. Oh happy times! :D


Addendum:

My goodness, even the garbage collector has started to behave right!!!

I can see in my browser that memory is now being released like STUPID! :shock:

It just jumped from 48.97% down to 35.88% when I closed a few tabs!

All the effort I’ve put into memory releasing the past year has finally started to pay off… the engine is finally implementing your requests! :lol:

It’s a historic evening people… all these fixes/improvements will have a profound positive effect on all Chromium engine users worldwide.

This is HUGE!

Millions of sites worldwide will be breaking when users with browsers having v64.0.3282.119 onward, start resizing elements on websites that support resizing without specifying the minimum width/height dimensions!

Containers, Tables, Textareas, you name it… they’re all breaking because most developers will not have set the minimum widths/heights as everyone had gotten used to Chromium’s shortcoming all these years of not being able to resize something smaller than initially rendered. :lol:

If you have your own website/s get to work today!

Search for all occurrences of “resize” in your CSS and add…

min-width:150px; min-height:50px;

…or whatever minimum dimensions are suitable for the element.

The Classic Browser v2.8 is now available for download...

* Fixed bug with http membership site not auto-login when site has gone https.

* Fixed bug with the Add Favorites form not populating with the correct YouTube URLs.

* Fixed bug with Firefox imported favorites not getting backed up.

* Developer gadget "Font Picker" taken to the next level.

* Added new cool developer gadget "Multi Converter".

* Element Exploring has been extended to the next level.

* Now you can check the browser's setup status under... "Main Menu > System Information > Basic Setup Checklist". Can you unlock the hidden NERD rating? :)

* The browser's beatification process continues.

* Upgraded to the Chromium Engine v64.0.3282.119 which has passed all tests bar one small issue we can live with.

There you have it boy & girls... the coolest version ever! :D

NB: The v2.8 archive was replaced due to emergency updates!
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

We took the dive and officially moved to the Chromium Engine v64 but it hasn't come without hidden problems!

Please check that your “compiled on:” time is "Mon Feb 05 2018 21:52:35 GMT+0200" <-- * Note the time difference *

This fixes a final horrible bug of videos continuing to play after closing a tab.

Apologies!

You should do a v2.8.1 to indicate the bug fix.
