NotHereToPlayGames Posted September 17, 2021 Share Posted September 17, 2021 Ouch! I admit that this one comes as a slight shock! I still "trust" 360Chrome and all of our telemetry removals, but this discovery indicates we have more to do. I've been combing through a v11 rebuild with a fine-tooth comb and was looking to remove GUI "checkboxes" for features that do not work (ie, I already remove DNS-over-HTTPS from the GUI because this does not work in 360Chrome). But instead found something present in all of my builds, in a @Dixel build he graciously shared privately (many thanks again), and in @Humming Owl builds. SEVERAL of the "checkboxes" present in 360Chrome's settings pages simply do not do anything! Below is a video of a screengrab using one of @Humming Owl's builds - note all of the "checkboxes" that are UNCHECKED. There should NOT be any "prediction" stuff going on when these are UNCHECKED. Watch the DNSQuerySniffer when I am typing text into the address bar, never hitting Enter, just typing text, backspacing, typing more text. ALL versions of 360Chrome make DNS lookups when text is being typed in the address bar - this to me is a "suggestion" or a "prediction" but I have those "checkboxes" UNCHECKED/DISABLED. Here's the screengrab video -- https://www.dropbox.com/s/jp13acg6ie3cpwh/prediction-service.mp4 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
