Netscape looks more like Chrome or FF to me!


Chrome and FF look nice. As does Opera and Vivaldi is just sooo elegant. All these can be configured to be super security conscious if you want as well.

Yours still has functionality issues, and looks a bit weird...You need to redesign it somehow.

Honestly, I am hoping you get your act together but you got a lot of work to do.

So now that you have finally seen what Netscape looks like… which browser does it resemble the most? :lol:


Err Chrome looks nothing like Netscape.

Btw, as for which browser is elegant or not…

When the feds come knocking your door down, confiscate your computer and toss you in the slammer for a couple of years… come back when you’re free again and tell me which browser is the prettiest!

:lol: :lol: :lol:

Soon you will all remember my words...

I'm not paranoid about that because I know the Feds will never knock on my door.

I've been vetted for the last 20 odd years and still am being vetted every 12 months so there is nothing they don't know about me or my life. They don't give a stuff if you browse the odd porn site either. So don't be paranoid ok. You are not the fish they want.

There is nothing I do on the net that will change that.

Furthermore, the internet is the last thing you should worry about. The Feds can track every single financial transaction you do. Also, if you have a Smart Phone, they know exactly where you are. Then there is social media and what not.

There is only one way to stay private, and that is becoming a monk without Bank accounts, smart phones, computers, tablets, VISA and Credit cards, passports, ID Cards, Driver Licences, Social security Number, Tax File Number, Medical Insurance etc etc.

Mate, if they want to, they can watch you having a Barby in your back yard.

And one more thing, there is nothing you can do with your Browser that can stop them. All you can do is stop adds but you can't stop the Feds. They can hack in to the electricity grids of other nations, so your browser would be nothing but a little joke to them.

You just don’t get it do you?

When the feds come knocking it’ll be because your elegant browser told them to! :lol:

Really? Why would my browser tell the feds to knock on my door?

Why would they be interested in me or you or any other Cyprus Forumer.

Come on! Let's be serious. They are NOT INTERESTED!

Just be very, very careful with commercial browsers… where you go, what you do…

Using one is like using a phone line installed by NSA technicians! :lol:

Firefox is 100% Open Source, while your browser isn't. Large companies have a reputation to protect, while you have none. Therefore the chance of you intentionally doing something bad with your browser is far higher than Mozilla trying to do such think with Firefox. Also, the people that work in such companies are experts in their field while you are not. Therefore the possibility of you unintentionally opening some security hole is also far greater.

NSA can track traffic from your browser just like they can track other browsers. Your ISP can keep track of every web page you ever visited and if those websites are not https they can also record all the content that you send and receive. There is nothing your browser can do about this. If somebody is doing something that could get him trouble with "NSA" then he would use something like the Tor browser: https://www.torproject.org/projects/torbrowser.html

The Tor software protects you by bouncing your communications around a distributed network of relays run by volunteers all around the world: it prevents somebody watching your Internet connection from learning what sites you visit, it prevents the sites you visit from learning your physical location, and it lets you access sites which are blocked.


It is based on Firefox (so fully open source) and has all the privacy and security features turned on by default.

Baloney Sotos... Firefox doesn’t even pass the most basic of privacy tests! :roll:

Why don’t you TEST instead of posting wishful thinking? :?

Oh and don’t come back with a...

“But if I install this extra, and then add that extra bit, and then twist the other bit... I can pass half of those tests!”

Get Real,

I just arrived in the States on a Green Card, sponsored by an Aviation Company.

I got finger-printed by the Department of Homeland Security, who had my entire profile given to them by the Australian Government on their request and had to submit all my Aviation Qualifications to them so they can open a file on me, plus fill out pages upon pages of forms asking me all kinds of things including my views on terrorism and my political views.

They've been doing this to everyone since 911. If you're on a Green Card it is more stringent though.

Using your browser isn't going to save my privacy ok! :roll:

'I was blown away by the security measures taken by US Government. I don't have anything against the process as it is designed to protect people. The intentions are GOOD! You would only worry if you have something to hide, otherwise all it is is a bit of an inconvenience and imposition.

You are literally pissing in the wind if you think you can protect people with your browser against the resources of these Governments and their methods.
