• Re: Google Chrome Browser

    From Ben Ritchey@1:393/68 to Ed Vance on Thu Jun 21 06:34:19 2018
    * An ongoing debate between Ed Vance and All rages on ...

    I know that I'm a 'hard case' but I would like to know Your opinion
    about the Google Chrome browser, Thank You.

    My experience with Chrome is somewhat limited but I use it as a backup browser.


    I usually use the Mozilla Firefox Developer browser or MS IExplorer (if required). The few times I did use Chrome it was very quick and stable.

    My fav is Mozilla Firefox as I have been using it for years without trouble, plus it syncs all my bookmarks and passwords between devices automatically. :)

    GM Ed or should I say GN when your msg is dated 0:19,

    Avast has a Tab selection that checks (some) program I use to see if
    their Version is up-to-date.

    So has AVG and many other programs.

    When I see the Results there is always a Premarked Box to make
    Google Chrome the default Browser.

    The same holds true for Opera also, and once you have set it to be
    default, there's no way out. I had not observed the box when installing
    that said it would be the default browser. To get away I had to delete
    the whole shit and re-install it.

    Out the window flew the nice Speed menu that I had created.

    Because I see this 'suggestion' from Avast to begin using the Chrome Browser often enough, I have began wondering how many readers of
    this echo use Google's Chrome for their main browser or as an
    optional browser?

    I have Chrome installed on Windows machines but I use it very seldom.

    Generally I use FFox for FB and most things, but since I noted that I
    always had to wait for the circular arrow to appear to be able to get
    the Weather map updated because it always appeared with data from my
    previous visit, I use Edge because it always starts updated.

    I usually never allow any 'services(?)' from Google unless I can't
    see what I want to see on the page I'm looking at.

    Neither do I, but since a crash I lost the AVG Secure Search, I have
    used Google.

    Another Note:

    Years ago I told you that neither Mothers nor Fathers day are celebrated
    the dates you do. Not even the neighboring countries Sweden and Finland celebrate those days on the same date.

    Thanks, I have only used McAfee (it came installed on the XP pc), Avast!
    and Commodo, I hadn't seen the Version Update feature in neither McAfee
    or Commodo so was suprised to see Avast! had it, so I stopped using Secunia.

    OUCH!, that hurts.

    One (some) of the Newsletters I read mentioned to always look to see if
    a Checkmark has already been put in a Box to make IT the Default.

    I see a Prechecked Box to make Google Chrome the Default in Avast!'s
    Version Update checker and uncheck it before I Close the Avast! window.

    the Weather map updated because it always appeared with data from my previous visit, I use Edge because it always starts updated.

    I can't recall if I've seen anything about the Edge browser.
    I suppose I'll have to have a look-see on DuckDuckGo.com to learn about
    the Edge browser.

    NICE!, that Edge updates its self.

    I use a XP Limited Users Account and have to switch Accounts periodically
    to a Admin Account to update Firefox or Opera when the Avast! option lets
    me knows I need to do it.

    I usually never allow any 'services(?)' from Google unless I can't
    see what I want to see on the page I'm looking at.

    Neither do I, but since a crash I lost the AVG Secure Search, I have
    used Google.

    Recently, Firefox has crashed many times, some times more than once a day.

    I'm mostly at fault for having opened many Tabs to read later, and opening several Firefox windows with many Tabs.

    ROUNDTUITS! I never find time to read what is in the Tabs I have opened,
    and always want to read some other website (and open more Tabs to read later).

    For several months I have been seeing the LEDs on my Router blink about
    every 5 seconds and have been wanting to finish reading what is in the Tabs I've marked for later reading so I could finally just have one Firefox
    window open so I could learn if the LED blinking is caused by something in
    one of the Tabs talking back to its webpage or if (perish the thought),
    Malware has taken over this XP pc.

    Forgive Me, I didn't remember that when I added Your's and Jean's Email
    Address in the To: field of my Fathers Day message.

    Everyone else I sent the Email to lives in the U.S.A., I hadn't thought
    about different Countries having different dates for Special Days.

    I probably won't remember it, but what dates are Mothers Day and Fathers Day celebrated in your part of the world?

    GM Ed,

    Avast has a Tab selection that checks (some) program I use to see if

    AVG updates automatically when the machine is connected to the net.
    So does Windows except if it's on a paid subscription line. In that case
    it just informs you that there is an update available to download.

    When I see the Results there is always a Premarked Box to make
    Google Chrome the default Browser.

    Every time you install a program you MUST check those boxes. I missed
    once and had to re-install.

    I see a Prechecked Box to make Google Chrome the Default in Avast!'s Version Update checker and uncheck it before I Close the Avast!
    window.

    I hesitate to use any Google programs because their snoopy manners.

    I can't recall if I've seen anything about the Edge browser.

    It was previously named Internet Explorer IIRC. I'm not sure though,
    since I haven't used Windows since XPpro.

    NICE!, that Edge updates its self.

    I didn't say that. I said that the weather map is already updated when
    it appears, while you have to manually start the update of the weather
    forecast and map with FF.

    Edge is updated automatically when necessary in a Windows update.

    Recently, Firefox has crashed many times, some times more than once
    a day.

    AFAIK FF hasn't crashed on me but OTOH I don't normally open several
    pages during a session. Maybe a couple or at most three.

    FireFox downloads an update while you do other things and installs the
    update next time you start the program.

    Another Note:

    I probably won't remember it, but what dates are Mothers Day and
    Fathers Day celebrated in your part of the world?

    I cannot tell you about "your part of the world" but I can tell you that
    on the ¸land Islands and Finland, Mothers day is on the second sunday of
    May and Fathers day on the second sunday in November.

    Consulting a swedish calender: Mothers day was the last sunday in May
    and Fathers day the second sunday in November which seems to coinside
    with Finland/¸land at least this year..
