So? You're a movie buff so I wouldn't be surprised you've got it. :?

You’re just astounded by things you can’t do... but it wouldn’t be the first time I’ve astounded you and it probably won’t be the last. :)

You couldn't even hack your own website if they showed you how it's done! :lol:


Look Sotos... you just posted a video and my browser has already gone crazy offering it to me for download! :lol:

If average movie buffs like Paphitis or Sotos, watch say 52 paid movies per year (let’s just assume one movie p/week on the weekend when they have the time) for which they are charged $2.5 per movie (I think), then that’s around $130 they spend each year on Internet movie watching!

So for $130 they get to watch 52 movies… and the cost is probably what stops them from watching even more movies!

Therefore, dear movie buffs... what is the "magic" script worth to you considering that you’ll be able to watch any movie desired every single night if you have the time... hell on some nights you may be able to squeeze in two movies!

Well, with the "magic" script I estimate you’d be watching around 200 movies per year which would come to a total cost of $500 if you had to pay for them.

So on the basis of the above I’d say that the "magic" script has an equilibrium price of around $150.

What do you guys think? :?

GR, don't you understand that by making it so obvious to everybody that you are liar that nobody will trust you to even try your browser?

Firefox is open source, while browsers like Chrome have huge companies behind them which would stand to lose billions if they were found to be doing something illegal on your computer. On the other hand you are a nobody, and if you are shown to be a liar also, then somebody should be a fool for even installing your browser on his computer.

On the subject of movies, your browser can't do shit with paid content, but there are real ways to get them for free. Personally for many years now I have stopped using pirated movies, songs, software etc. I am also almost never using any ad-blockers. I have a Netflix and Spotify subscription and for software I either use free ones, or buy them if I can't find a good free alternative. Piracy is for the 3rd world and for youngsters who can't afford to pay. An adult in a 1st world country who isn't a total loser has no excuse for pirating and cheating.

The biggest fool is YOU for trusting browsers of corporations that have ALREADY been caught with their pants down cheating, and fined enormous sums of money countless times...

Btw Sotos, supplying your credit card details to Google servers is the absolute dumbest thing one could do on the Internet!

And I wonder if they’ve started utilizing that new Google Payment API shit which is a wrapper around genuine credit card payment systems so as to pinch card details!

Yet here you are, no doubt considering yourself to be an “intelligent” fellow making all these wise and informed decisions in life! :roll: :lol:

So according to Sotos... Google the multi-convicted felon is the “trusted” entity while GR who has a clean police record and nothing but the desire to protect the public from the evil clutches of corporate America which is now in partnership with the criminal US government, is the “untrustworthy” entity that people should lookout from!

And this IDIOT considers himself intelligent! :)

Antitrust case against Google for Android, because Android is the dominant OS for mobiles. Sure, you will never be in that position with the 4 users your browser has :lol: Case against Google for giving preference to its own comparison-shopping service in its own search results! An example showing how strict they are with Google. If Google had disabled the ability of its users to log in the sites of competitors then there would be a million lawsuits against them. But you can do it and nobody cares, because nobody is using your crappy browser ;)

So your examples prove my point. That Google is watched and it is caught for every minor detail. On the other hand, when a lying nobody like you who has no regard to the laws does something, nobody cares. Who knows if you stole data from the PCs of those 4 naive people who installed your browser? Nobody can know this, because nobody will ever bother to check something that so few people are using, as opposed to the billions who use Chrome and the other major browsers.

While not exactly blocking them, Google buries competitors deep in search results…

…and uses a host of other illegal tactics to eliminate competition.

I'm blocking the data acquisition servers (not websites) of a now multi-convicted criminal... that's what concerned and responsible people do! You block a criminal and you don't further their popularity.

Sotos wrote:So your examples prove my point. That Google is watched and it is caught for every minor detail.

That's a naive sweeping assumption! Google has committed a myriad of crimes and only tried and convicted for about a dozen! Your points are childish and stupid.
And not to mention that although they are fined, nobody has ever made them ERASE data they’ve been illegally acquiring!

It’s unfortunate my upload speed sucks due to Cyta’s UL-capping, or I would’ve swiftly embarrassed you over that one... by uploading it to my website and giving you a link for a few minutes. That would've been the icing on the cake, but alas...

You need a server to store data if you're gonna get into stealing data... and I don't think the half-dozen 2nd hand IDE/SATA hard disks lying around on my benches will be suitable for such a venture! :lol:
