  1. Thank you, I will do just that, very much appreciate your advice.
  2. I agree ... Kafan minibrowser is fine and so is DC Browser. I also hope we see more work done on these browsers - good to have more options.
  3. Yeah, I've left it as well as the others. I can easily disable and leave only enabled the secure once, but sites stop working.
  4. I'm sorry I don't know why Performance difference of Windows Vista is different, but I see there were no replies anyway so figured I'd just offer my feedback.
  5. I must say, I've not had any issues with Zorin and have been using it regularly now and would consider it as an option to replace XP, but only when its completely useless and we're not there yet as far as I'm concerned. I see no reason to go with Pro as wine seems to be able to run windows programs. The drawbacks, are, its not as customizable as XP to me and I'm used to changing and creating new menus and folders on the start menu at will and the file explorer isn't as manageable. Just so happens the large fonts are okay with me but I know they can be changed.
  6. Roses are red, your glasses are blue ... I don't sleep at night 'cause I'm thinking of you'.
  7. I see, thank you for the update. Whatever you think is best going forward. Perhaps its as reduced in size as can be now.
  8. Hello: from Mister Blobfish Just checking to see how things are coming along with your new update ( am using Jan 09 ungoogled ) , I see your notes and are working on it. No rush, of course, likely you're busy. Take good care.
  9. Yeah, I enjoy various music types, actually and newer isn't always better nowadays. I will check out earlier (93) for sure. I remember that year very well, in fact ... 1994 more so and then things started to get hazy (partly my fault) Starting to get a bit concerned ... hope you're doing better @msfntor

  11. Yo mama's teeth are so yellow when she smiles at traffic, it slows down ... Sorry, I couldn't resist ... hehe ... Long time no see; glad to see you around again. I do have; blocklist.pingCountVersion set to "0" but will change it to "2". however looks like I missed blocklist.pingCountTotal .. I added that so guess they should all be "2" Thanks much!!
  12. Thank you very much I won't bother with that test again as I've read its more of a scam type thing to get people to use a vpn that is tied into cf and secure sni isn't even reliable yet. Strange: Today I discover 2 dns files on my computer. One dnsapi.dll is ms signed and so its the other but no browser will work without dnsapi.dll. Chrome I know needs windows but I'm surprised that Serpent needs it too (reads breakpoint error). However, I don't need (and don't want) a resolver on the local PC (sorry I'm not explaining this correctly, I realize that) especially from m$. I've moved it from the system32 folder for now, but still unsure whats going on. DNS Caching Resolver Service V5.1.2600.5797 PS: I guess I'm still surprised just how much telemetry is still in windows. Gosh, I can only imagine what 8 or 10 must be filled with. Otherwise, I like XP and will stay with is as long as I can.
  13. I know its different in NM but for Serpent 52 (also the above prefs are for St) these are my settings as I don't like to ping them if I don't have to. EDIT: And: user_pref("captivedetect.canonicalURL", ""); user_pref("captivedetect.maxRetryCount", 0); user_pref("captivedetect.maxWaitingTime", 0); user_pref("captivedetect.pollingTime", 0);
  14. For what its worth: For Serpent 52 - I use the following prefs. user_pref("extensions.blocklist.detailsURL", ""); user_pref("extensions.blocklist.enabled", false); user_pref("extensions.blocklist.itemURL", ""); user_pref("extensions.blocklist.level", 1); user_pref("extensions.blocklist.pingCountVersion", 0); user_pref("extensions.blocklist.url", ""); user_pref("extensions.getAddons.browseAddons", ""); user_pref("extensions.getAddons.get.url", ""); user_pref("extensions.getAddons.getWithPerformance.url", ""); user_pref("extensions.getAddons.link.url", ""); user_pref("extensions.getAddons.recommended.browseURL", ""); user_pref("extensions.getAddons.recommended.url", ""); user_pref("extensions.getAddons.search.browseURL", ""); user_pref("extensions.getAddons.search.url", ""); user_pref("extensions.getAddons.showPane", false); user_pref("extensions.systemAddon.update.enabled", false); user_pref("extensions.systemAddon.update.url", ""); user_pref("extensions.update.autoUpdateDefault", false); user_pref("extensions.update.background.url","); user_pref("extensions.update.url",");
  15. I am now using the flags: Strict Site Isolation in 360 Chrome V11 Arctic Foxie and in Serpent 52 privacy.firstparty.isolate (true) layout.css.isolation.enabled (true -default) But I guess that isn't the solution. Thanks in advance :)
  16. Sorry to drudge up an old thread and posting, but I've been reading over and researching CND and didn't realize that I'm oxymoron trying to get results from but also block so I am confused now. Obviously I need to learn umatrix. Will try this week but don't find much on decentraliseye recently. Regardless, I did the check/test and get results from (both) serpent 52 and 360 Chrome V11 and am wondering can this test be trusted. Again, sorry just didn't know where to post this question and its likely been already asked by members; but I can't locate it. Sort of wondering about "but not over a secure connection. Anybody listening on the 'wire' can see the DNS queries" part ... and "Anybody listening on the wire can see the exact website you made a tls connection to" Firstly; who is "Anybody" and lastly 'on the wire' ... wouldn't that take some malware on the device or router? If I said something that I shouldn't, please delete this.
  17. Yeah that is what I was thinking, but wondering because this is Chrome 69 and pretty old considering. Of course, this is XP so no protection on the hardware level, but that isn't my desire anyway as I'm trying to get more speed and updates slow things down. I suspset it would go hand-in-hand with isolation flags that @Sampei was talking about. Do you guys recomend enabling the buffer? I'm not sure what default is. EDIT: Since I've also: WebAssembly threads support. Enables support for the WebAssembly Threads proposal. Implies #shared-array-buffer and #enable-webassembly. – Mac, Windows, Linux, Chrome OS, Android #enable-webassembly-threads Set to disabled (I never use wasm), I'll also roll with that disabled and let you know what Mister Blobfish says.
  18. What would you all do without (cute little) Mister Blobfish to start off the day. Wait ... please help, there is something that makes Daves glasses look blue. There must be a setting somewhere. Poor Dave ... I feel for ya man. OK ... serious question. https://www.chromium.org/Home/chromium-security/ssca Experimental enabled SharedArrayBuffer support in JavaScript. Enable SharedArrayBuffer support in JavaScript. – Mac, Windows, Linux, Chrome OS, Android #shared-array-buffer This is at its default and undefined (again, don't know what that means). Should this flag be set to disable or enable? I'm trying to research myself. I read this would add protection but could slow things down and I don't want to to do that. I'm hungry for some reason now
  19. I don't see how people afford to drive (I don't) but to own a car and put gas in it these days must be just terrible. Mom and (my dearly departed) father were able to raise me with modest income and basic needs were met ... now, I just don't see how a family manages. Yeah, haven't purchased anything big in quite some time. Winter can be rough, but I use electric blanket as the heat is sometimes not on here.
  20. I don't want you to lose your therad - you are a very nice man and I hope you will feel better soon. Please take care and try to eat well and sleep well. I know I push sleep; but tis its the best medicine. Try to get up every day around the same time, and if possible, try to get some sun. I know its hard, but sun during the day helps your Circadian rhythms which can do wonders to those of us with cardiac issues. Stress, yeah, hard to avoid these days, but try to push out/away the BS in life and focus on what is right. You have shown us there are beautiful things we could be missing in life when life is in chaos. Your love for animals (disdain animal abuse) and other people have touched us all and you can see the beauty in nature and make others also see through your posting. I will be so bold to say this, by posting here as such you are helping others. Please remember: we care about you here and want you to be well and posting again. I still hope you won't give up on this thread, and when you feel better, please consider more. I don't know if this is your thing, but I found this to be soothing and uplifting - hope you enjoy. Wishing you well. ~Sal
  21. Thank you ... I'm going to examine those ciphers and disable anything below tls1.0, but I wonder *what* would be using them on my system. I don't use IE (yes, I know its still woven into the explorer) and I've don't want mysterious things connecting as I've sttripped this down to almost noting related to ms now ... or at least I though so before this. I'm approaching this from another angel, I'm hoping my system will not be able to connet to anything. Hope that made sense.
