  1. Somewhat related to @ntfoxy's systrayutil at https://msfn.org/board/topic/183027-my-xp-programs/?do=findComment&comment=1205826 So far, the only way to prevent the systray from showing all icons is to right click start menu --> properties and go program by program... until the next system or shell crash forces you to redo the damn thing over again. Happens to me once or twice a month. The settings for hide/show icons are (sort of) saved in the traynotify key in the registry (https://www.techsupportforum.com/threads/registry-settings-for-systray-icons.492771/), but that is just a container, the settings are somewhere else (who knows where). It really p***es me off. Surfing around I remembered an old W98 16bit app that can be found in the systraymngr link. Being 16bit, it won't install in a hardened setup. But you can install it on a virtual machine (or build it, if you know how to) and copy the files NTStart.exe, trayman.exe, tmhook.dll, tmhook.dll, trayman somewhere, and run a reg file with the text at the end of this message. For one or two reboots, it works fine in xp-pro. Soon enough, though, it begins to fail, slowing the loading of core services, and firing up trayman.exe too late to get the selected apps' icons into the tray folder. This is unfortunate, because it really works, while it does. Any clue on what may be wrong (besides being 16bit, using XP, etc)? Thanks!

  2. With all due respect, tt is interesting that you, a person that has zero use for this browser, would dare comment on some of the most helpful persons in this thread, presuming they do it to gain... what? I agree with a previous fellw here in that most of comments in the last three pages could go somewhere else, yours in particular.
  3. Well, I like my social media in dark mode, so it sounds good. I have seen you guys discuss using style sheets, but never tried it. Is there anywhere a short introduction to do it?
  4. Yeah, tried all of them. Same same: phone can't read the qr. Which is required for whatsapp.
  5. I must say, @NotHereToPlayGames, that this build is the best one yet. Very robust. I've been playing up to 4 youtube tabs, 1 youtbe plus facebook and linkedin and whatsapp, and hardly any crash. Cheers!
  6. Hi. I have noticed that whatsappweb allows login and kind of start to load in a fresh profile in sp52. But then ends up spiraling around just like github. Has anyone been able to trick whatsapp into working in sp52?
  7. Just an update from my last post here. I added a few parameters I had previously erased so as to make sure whatsapp works: in my set up, these parameters allow for whatsapp (plus YT, FB and linkedin; I can read twitter, but have no account, so I don't know about it). I have a bat file that, on launch, copies my standard "preferences" "bookmarks" and "favicons" into Default, and another to update and save them outside Default when I make changes that I want to keep for future sessions. Otherwise all changes to those files get lost (with said files) on quitting 360chrome. The same applies for extensions that lose settings when deleting (as I do) Default\Local Extension Settings when closing the browsing. The only things I leave in the Default folder after closing are in the attached image. Those highlighted are 1 empty folder and 9 0 byte files (somewhere Articfoxie suggested his back in the day, and works for me) to avoid the browser creating folders with those files names, and a file with the folder left in default. The two non-highlighted folders are the extensions' settings. All the rest is gone on closing the browser, and recreated automatically when opening it. I hope it may be useful. I will test back test Humming Owl's build 13.0.2310.0 and works well (other than for a crash now and then in whatsapp, as it was always the case for me. The 13.5 seems much more stable.

  8. True, I use the loader with your newer 13.5 and Humming Owl's 11 and 13. Well, I like to keep my system partition lean, and my archives leaner, so I delete all I can when using any browser. I never cared much for sessions, cookies and all those things that make the browser start faster but (in my opinion) underperforming and leaking information that is mine only. More important, once I set up a browser, I like it not to change. Erasing all those files and preserving only the ones I want makes it more likely for my set up to pick any change based on browsing behavior.

I have to add them manually, couldn't do it through the loader. (2) I created a bat file to start 360chrome, which copies bookmarks into default, as well as the extension settings required in Default\Local Extension Settings\ for some extensions (such as umatrix) to run. (3) As in the image, I have a few files remaining (bold by selection) that I would like to get rd of, but haven't yet tried to do so. Cheers.
  10. Yeah, I think that is what he is talking about. I played with the idea in 2017, but decided it was not worth it, given roytam1's builds. It may soon be necessary, though. I'm not a linux guy, but am learning, and the idea for me was/would be to connect to an r-pi used for both filtering and browsing remotely. I think the same can be achieved with vnc (as in tightvnc), though. But I haven't been forced to do so yet. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/X_Window_System
  11. Oh, I don't know how to build. But I'm keen to use roytam1's build.
  12. Hi @roytam1 (I hope things are picking up) and all. I wonder if anyone could direct me to places where to learn how to mod artic fox (roy's build). Is it safe to assume that what is good for newmoon 27 is (kind of) good for artic fox?
  13. If so, the dismiss the overlay extension may do the trick, It does in most other sites with that strategy.
