Coming very soon... an emergency release for new "feature policy":

We have added a "Set Feature Policy" under "Page Operations" in the main menu.

This is to solve the recently introduced “features policy” in the Chromium engine, which would explain why your Camera, Mic and/or Virtual Reality hardware may have stopped working.

This new Chromium change on top of other related settings has complicated matters further and may not survive future versions of Chromium... we'll just have to wait and see.

For now please use this special dialog box to set your "features policy" whenever needed on specific pages visited, until further notice.

The "Feature Policy" can also be set for each membership site so be sure to go through your membership accounts and make any adjustments needed there also.

NB: Features affected by this include... 1.Geolocation, 2.Microphone, 3.Camera, 4.MIDI (digital instruments), 5.Encrypted Media (paid streaming video), 6.Virtual Reality.

Now that the latest EU Internet privacy law (GDPR) has kicked in and countless websites have reacted negatively to it by increasing their “cookie policy” banners to ridiculous sizes, and/or in some cases forcing visitors to accept a violation of their privacy or they cannot proceed…

Guess which browser can remove ALL cookie banners instantly, with a single R-click? :lol:

That’s right… the Classic is the ONLY browser on the market that can still preserve your privacy without restricting your browsing!

In your face competition! :lol:

Designed to serve YOU not corporations!

From the next version (v3.6) onwards, The Classic Browser will by default ENFORCE the EU’s latest Internet privacy law (GDPR). This feature will be selectable in the options although disabling it is not recommended.

According to the latest EU legislation… Internet surfers no longer give their consent to a violation of their privacy by default, and websites must specifically and without duress obtain such permission.

In line with this new legislation The Classic Browser will no longer permit Cookie Policy Banners and other attempts by offending websites to block users from proceeding any further unless they comply with the website’s demands; effectively blackmailing users!

Such illegal behavior will be automatically squashed via a powerful anti-blackmailing algorithm built into the new version of the only browser on the market that looks after the user’s interests, so be sure to upgrade to v3.6 at the first opportunity.

Since the introduction of the EU legislation many websites have gone absolutely insane trying to keep control of your enslavement. One such example is the well known euronews!

Here’s what euronews does to you in commercial browsers...

And here’s what the Classic browser (v3.6) does for you automatically...

:lol:

In other words… the EU legislation has ALREADY answered on the user’s behalf with an emphatic NO to privacy violations, so there’s no need for any further discussion on the matter so just deliver the content thank you very much… :)

The Classic Browser v3.6 is now available for download:

There are two important introductions in this release and some notes...


1. Set Feature Policy (under "Page Operations" in the main menu)

This is to solve the recently introduced “features policy” problem in the Chromium engine, which would explain why your Camera, Mic and/or Virtual Reality hardware may have stopped working.

This new Chromium change on top of other related settings has complicated matters further and may not survive future versions of Chromium... we'll just have to wait and see.

For now please use this special dialog box to set your "feature policy" whenever needed on specific pages visited, until further notice.

The "Feature Policy" can also be set for each membership site so be sure to go through your membership accounts and make any adjustments needed there also.

NB: Features affected by this include... 1.Geolocation, 2.Microphone, 3.Camera, 4.MIDI (digital instruments), 5.Encrypted Media (paid streaming video), and 6.Virtual Reality.


2. Enforce the EU’s Internet Privacy Law GDPR (In the browser options)

According to the latest EU legislation… Internet surfers no longer give their consent to a violation of their privacy by default, and websites MUST specifically and without duress obtain such permission from the user.

In line with this new legislation The Classic Browser will no longer permit Cookie Policy Banners and other attempts by offending websites that block users from proceeding and by forcing one-sided agreements.

Such behavior will be automatically squashed by the browser when this option is enabled.


3. NB: Existing users please enable... "URL Keyword Blocking" and add "consent.cmp" and "yimg.com" to the list of words to block.


4. NB: The Yahoo search engine is on the verge of getting dropped in the next version. See for your selves why...


5. Yes, there is more in this version but memory fails me right now... :)


That's it for now...

Important Announcement:

We have replaced the two archives (classic-64.zip and classic-32.zip) with newer versions today on the 01-06-2018, due to a newer version of “Enforce GDPR”.

If your copy of the browser has a compile date of May then you'll need to download again. Apologies.

We hope you enjoy harassment-free Internet surfing with our new GDPR Enforcement!

It’s been a very tough feat to accomplish and we doubt you’ll find another insane programmer who would be prepared to tackle such madness, but it is now done and we can now relax!

Although we have tested with literally hundreds of websites, if you do come across a website that fails to respond to our GDPR interrogation or one that breaks… please send us an email with the offending URL. Thanks.

EU Internet Privacy Law (GDPR) Enforcement - Revision III

One of the great hallmarks of the Classic browser is the complete removal of the Chromium session upon browser exit.

The advantages of blowing away the Chromium session are numerous but relevant to this post is the deletion of all cookies regardless of cookie type.

This means that a Classic browser user can never enter into any “privacy policy agreements” with websites, as no such settings can ever remain on the hard disk for longer than a single browsing session thus rendering such agreements pointless.

For this reason privacy policy (cookie) banners cannot be tolerated by the Classic browser and the reason for the introduction of the “EU Internet Privacy Law (GDPR) Enforcement” feature.

This feature however has not come easily… it has been excruciatingly complex to implement without breaking pages and without confusing say an innocent cookie recipe with cookie privacy notices; as a simple example, and all this has to happen in a fraction of a second!

With this 3rd revision of this powerful feature, we have finally ironed out all problems for we have made two important changes to improve it…

1. Browser Error Message Reporting will now get automatically disabled if you have GDPR enabled. This is to silence the unavoidable “out of sync” errors that are generated due to GDPR activating late into a page. This frequently occurring error that we are now suppressing, should be of no concern to the user.

2. A site “Exclusion List” has been added for the addition of URLs that work better with an alternative “aggression level” of GDPR checking, or zero for “none” such as search engines (already included by default).

Overall usage of this feature is very simple… just paste the offending URL in the new exclusion list field box provided and set the desirable level as required or zero for none.

So, be sure to DL the coming v3.7 of the Classic browser to experience banner-free Internet browsing at lightning speed.
