No you are not impeding my choices.

I downloaded your browser and quickly said "WTF"!

I quickly uninstalled it and went for a more sensible option that lets me do what I want and configure everything the way I want it!

This post is the most sensible post you have made.

Well here’s another sensible post for you…

Seeing that you’re happy using other browsers, kindly fuck off from my thread then!

:lol: :lol: :lol:


Maybe I will continue to provide my feedback! :lol:

In the first image you activated “Multi-Frames” which means “picture in picture” mode.

You can undo it by selecting this option again because it’s a toggle…

Main Menu > Browser Functions > Multi Frames (Toggle)

Although in your case I can see you clicked on a "Multi-Link" which can open many websites at once, and even set the browser to Multi-Frames!


In the second image the browser is telling you that it just killed a cookie/privacy banner for you with a bit of information about it. Once your mouse goes over that little “RIP” sign it’ll disappear.

There are no problems Paphitis, but Multi Frames does tend to scare people the first time they see it happening.

Carry on... :lol:

Oh OK...I appreciate the information.

I thought you had hijacked my computer at one stage and was cursing you. :lol:

I withdraw previous statement. :D

I have no such power… I can’t intervene on a remote computer without the users’ collaboration.

I'm actually using it as I'm finding it highly configurable. Done everything, except for importing my memberships and step 6.

All works well and happy with it generally.

I know what a multi frame is as I use multi frames with Mozilla, Chrome and Vivaldi and picture in picture mode when I am watching or listening to a Youtube or watching something on Netflix whilst I surf a news site or social media.

Like what you did with YouTube. no adds.

I installed the HOSTS file and get no adds on websites either.

But I would like to be able to log in to YouTube. Reason for that is because I monitor a few channels there and YouTube pushes content according to my subscriptions and viewer behavior. I find that very useful. I understand you have a privacy concern with them which is fair enough. I have been unable to bypass that, but would like to,

I would also like to log into to Google when I need to for the same reasons. So want to bypass that as well.

I do use DDG most of the time though. I just sometimes use Google and would like to log in for emails and other services. i give them want I want to give them.

When I try to log into YouTube or Google I get the dialogue box with the following helpful tip which means you are allowing users to bypass your security measures, which is good:

MENU>BROWSER FUNCTIONS>BROWSER OPTIONS>BROWSING AND SECURITY OPTIONS

But there is no functionality where I can switch off the Browser Script Error when we want to log into Google services.

Not a deal breaker as I can still do that with other browsers like Mozilla, Chrome, Vivaldi etc.

Anyway, here is my set up so far: (looks quite neat)

This is something we spoke about before. My browser blocks Google servers (about 12 of them) which process Google account details, thereby making it impossible to log into Google accounts.

Those who have a online lifestyle that revolves around a Google account would be better off using another browser. The Classic is good for the "Google-phobic" surfers, if I can invent a term.
