@Gansangriff , I hope you will help the author to eliminate those connections and in that case , do you think this could be a good alternative to firefox , which I 'm currently on ? I want to ditch firefox because it leaks data to yandex .

The "en_skin.srx" was removed but the contents of it where replaced on the "iframe.srx" and "skin.srx" files.

Hmm, interesting route and you had me thinking of doing the same for my rebuild.

I think for now I am going to keep iframse.srx and skin.srx untouched but may end up going this route down the road.

I kind of like how if you "missed" something in en_skin.srx, the GUI has a "fallback" and pulls from iframe.srx and skin.srx.

@Humming Owl Please measure the network traffic on the startup of the modified V11. There is definetly some nonsense going on here! Obviously the gibberish "words", which are searched over the network, are randomly generated, so looking different this time.

Off Topic: @D.Draker Currently, the 360EE isn't my taste. It may use less RAM in total, but it doesn't perform as good as New Moon on this dated Windows XP machine. I think, that's because of NoScript in New Moon. If I would allow scripts everywhere, New Moon wouldn't be quick either. Then there is this Google interface with checkboxes for promising optimisations, quick download modes, accounts for your webbrowser... no, that's not a software that feels trustworthy for me. Which doesn't mean, something proper can be built out of it! Firefox leaking to Yandex? Maybe you can get into setting up a firewall somewhere on your computer or in your router. A filter list. On a current computer, maybe have a look at Pale Moon, if it can do everything for you.

Do V9 - V12 also have following problems of V13: slow video rendering beyond the slowness due to lack of GPU decoding, inability to display certain characters (emojis and various other symbols) and inability to identify with a certificate on sites that require them?

Chrome 49 doesn't have these problems, although I couldn't test video playback with a better resolution video on that version, just those here which played smoothly in fullscreen unlike with EE, not aware of any other video site that would work though.

Maybe that connection you got is related to a very first run of the browser on a clean OS.

@ArcticFoxie I need your help with this, if you can of course. I want you to run the browser (v11) from a clean install of Win7 or WinXP with TcpLogView and WireShark to see if the connection appear.

I will also do this but I want to do several tests to see if this occurrence is not that common.

WireShark --> https://www.wireshark.org/

Version 3.2 was the last version that was compatible with Win7.

Version 1.10 was the last version that was compatible with WinXP.

Cheers.

1 - No emojis are due to the browser's blocking remote fonts (which is a nice thing) . They are trying to make a privacy-oriented browser , you know . I did a 13th version for myself from scratch and I too blocked it. Also, blocked web-gl , web-rtc and other numerous things like UA-hints , for example. ( a very nasty thing !)

2- I use a very dated PC for the internet . CPU is from 2008 (quad) ! (soon to be 14 years old!) . And I do not see any lags , even though hardware acceleration is blocked completely due to disabled fingerprinting. Perhaps it has something to do with XP ? (I gather you're on XP , right ?)

3 - Problem with certificates can be solved with a cert. pack by @legacyfan , it includes the .bat . You do not even need SHA-2. But I'm afraid it could be deleted already . Check his account.

For starters, I had to edit Preferences to open an empty page on startup - never been a big fan of the browser opening ANYTHING on startup.

Launched for First Run, closed, launched a 2nd time, closed, launched a 3rd time, copied logs below.

Not familiar with Wireshark and don't see a way to copy and paste and don't really have the time to learn it at the moment.

 

Pastes above aren't formatted very well, but taking screencaps, uploading to Dropbox, then embedding a shared link on the forum just takes too d@mn long at the moment.

ps1 - no hosts file for above logs, fully updated Win XP x86 SP3 (by fully updated, I *exclude* "pos" updates).

ps2 - a "gstatic" connection for FIRST RUN ONLY is normal and to be expected on Chrome/Chromium-based browsers.

Can it be nixed?  Not really sure, to be honest, it doesn't "overly" concern me as a first-run ONLY connection.

From what I have read on it, it's more of an ATTEMPT for Google to somehow track Market Share but that the method is flawed and useless, but my readings on it are extremely limited.

But enough so that at least for now, that one-time first-run-only connection is "harmless".

So what if Google has "data" that an open source WebKit v86 engine was installed at such-and-such IP Address *seventy times* since September 2020.

I admit, I've never used wireshark and I'm not shamed to admit it, but it never to late to learn, I guess. I'm always late and (more than) a dollar short.

Basilisk First Run connections (July 3rd download, I don't download every week), no pages visited, no extensions installed, just extracted and launched for the very first time and these are all of the connections it made (with my hosts file re-enabled)  --

I see a TON of "crap" in this list and frankly trust 360Chrome over and above Basilisk if we are to go by "first run connections".

Let's keep it all in perspective, I don't think I've seen any "reports" to Roytam about these "connections".

I like the fact that you are leaning more towards privacy and getting rid of the spying aspect(s) of chromium in general. As I've stated before, I realize we need this browser. I have (practically) everything blocked (web-gl , web-rtc , dom-storage , local cache) in FF as well so I'm used to it for the sake of privacy. Just would rather have it that way.

Wouldn't it easier to use "no first run" flag ? Perhaps it will help with your gstatic connections. Do not get mad at me , it's just a suggestion.
