  1. The teams behind the Google Chrome, Apple Safari, Mozilla Firefox and Microsoft Edge browsers have banded together to improve extensions, the add-ons you can download to customize the software. That should mean your extensions will work better and come with a better security foundation to protect you from malware. On Friday, the teams unveiled a discussion and development forum at the World Wide Web Consortium, or W3C, dedicated to developing standards for extensions. The forum, the WebExtensions Community Group, gives engineers a place to build a unified and more secure core found
  2. New browser-tracking hack works even when you flush caches or go incognito At least 4 top browsers affected by "powerful tracking vector," researchers say. Enlarge Getty Images The prospect of Web users being tracked by the sites they visit has prompted several countermeasures over the years, including using Privacy Badger or an alternate anti-tracking extension, enabling private or incognito browsing sessions, or clearing cookies. Now, websites have a new way to defeat all three. The technique lever
  3. Microsoft issues warning about malware campaign infecting Chrome, Edge, and Firefox Cyberattacks have become rampant over the past few months, especially now that people are relying mostly on digital services in light of the ongoing pandemic. Now, Microsoft has shared details about a new malware campaign targeting major browsers such as Google Chrome, Microsoft Edge, Yandex, and Mozilla Firefox. The "Adrozek" family of browser modifiers has been active since May 2020, injecting advertisements into search results. These malware-inserted ads lead us
  4. Top web browsers 2020: Chrome snaps up more share, new Edge again gains ground Google's Chrome browser edged toward the 70% mark in user share in May. No one else in the browser wars is close. Thinkstock Chrome's share reached a record high in May, the fifth straight month of gains, a run the browser last enjoyed three years ago. According to data published Monday by California metrics vendor Net Applications, Chrome's share in May climbed six-tenths of a percentage point to 69.8%. The browser has been on a
  5. Top web browsers 2020: Firefox sheds share, falls behind Edge It was bad news again for Firefox in March, as Mozilla's browser shed users at a pace that left it falling behind Microsoft's Edge. Thinkstock Firefox last month continued a march toward ruin, falling twice its average loss over the past year and losing its place as the world's second-most-used browser. According to data posted today by analytics company Net Applications, Firefox's share in March slumped to 7.2%, down four-tenths of a percentage point.
  6. Top web browsers 2020: Firefox sinks to share unseen since 2005 It was not good news for Firefox in February, as Mozilla's browser lost users at a pace that left it at its lowest level of market share in 15 years. Thinkstock Firefox took a significant turn for the worse last month, falling three times its average share loss over the past year and dropping to a level not seen since 2005. According to data published Sunday by web metrics vendor Net Applications, Firefox's share in February sank to 7.6%, down six-ten
  7. BrowserDownloadsView: manage downloads in all desktop browsers BrowserDownloadsView is a new portable software program by Nirsoft (one of our favorite developers). The program, like many programs by Nirsoft, provides a list view of data; in this case, it retrieves data from supported desktop browsers to display a list of downloaded files. What makes it interesting is the fact that it supports multiple desktop browsers and that the data is merged so that you end up with a single list of downloaded files. While that is only of interest to users who use

    Chromium Browser

    I'm trying to use Chromium, as Google Chrome is getting more aggressive with data collection. The issue here is that I can not play any videos even after trying the following: Clearing all browsing data and relunching. Allow Flash player. Uncheck "use hardware acceleration". Downloading and installing Adobe Flash. I'm out of solutions and would appreciate any help.
  9. Top web browsers 2019: No end in sight for Firefox's losses Mozilla's efforts to make Firefox more attractive as a web browser have failed to move the share needle. Meanwhile, Google's Chrome continues its dominance. Thinkstock If Firefox were a ship, it would be becalmed on a flat sea, loosened seams leaking faster than the hand-worked pumps can empty the bilge, passengers springing overboard and swimming toward other vessels - those with sails bearing rivals' logos. According to data published Sunday by analytic
  10. Mozilla has been heavily invested in WebAssembly with Firefox, and today, the organization teamed up with a few others to form the new Bytecode Alliance, which aims to create "new software foundations, building on standards such as WebAssembly and WebAssembly System Interface (WASI)". Mozilla has teamed up with Intel, Red Hat, and Fastly to found the alliance, but more members are likely to join over time. The goal of the Bytecode Alliance is to create a new runtime environment and language toolchains which are secure, efficient, and modular, while also being available on as many p
  11. Where do browsers stand on Flash's impending demise? It's been two years since Adobe announced it would finally kill off its Flash Player; browser makers plan to follow suit on their own timelines. Thinkstock Two years ago, Adobe announced it would finally kill and bury Flash Player, the plug-in that simultaneously launched a million websites and gave security professionals nightmares. The oft-abused technology, equally praised and scorned even when it was at the top of its game, will land in the digital landfill at the end
  12. As the company transitions its Edge browser in Windows 10 to one that's Chromium based, it also plans to maintain support for IE11. For IT admins, the variety of browser iterations could get confusing. Microsoft Microsoft will continue to include Internet Explorer 11 (IE11) and the original Edge with Windows 10, according to a company program manager. In a video recorded for this week's Microsoft Build conference, Fred Pullen, a principal program manager on the Edge team, filled in some of the blanks about the "IE mode" to be inserted
  13. Newer versions of Chrome, Safari, and Opera will no longer allow you to disable hyperlink auditing, which is a concern for those seeking maximum privacy. While some of these browsers previously allowed you to disable this feature, newer versions are going in the opposite direction. Hyperlink auditing is an HTML standard that can be used to track clicks on web site links. This is done by creating special links that ping back to a specified URL when they are clicked on. These pings are done in the form of a POST request to the specified web page, which can then examine t
  14. For the second straight month, Mozilla's Firefox gained user share in January. That puts its share back where it was in mid-2018. Mozilla's Firefox wrapped up a two-month resurgence this week, clawing back some previously-lost user share to return to a level last seen in the middle of 2018. The open-source browser remains the only major browser committed to using a rendering engine that is not based on Google's Blink or its predecessor, WebKit. According to web analytics vendor Net Applications, Firefox's share rose by thr
  15. A new web security paper via ArXiv has revealed details about a little known TLS tracking technique that companies can use to track users across the web. TLS Tracking Across the Web Most users know that they can be tracked via cookies, which is why some delete them or use their browsers’ own “private modes,” which don’t store session cookies. However, over the past few years, due to browsers continuing to implement advanced new features, new tracking capabilities have appeared, such as browser fingerprinting and now TLS tracking too. When a TLS connection is ma
