Ambrocious Posted April 11, 2012 Share Posted April 11, 2012 UPDATE: ISSUES RESOLVED In a slightly startling find, Google Chrome has been found to be engaged in active censorship in web linking to MediaFire while using the anonymous redirecting service from anonym.to. Although it does not appear to be doing the same sort of censorship to Hotfile or ShareSend (other file hosting website have not yet been tested), it definately appears to be giving a FALSIFIED message to Chrome users claiming that the file has been blocked due to violation, even though if you simply remove the anonym.to linking method, it travels straight into your desired download. Even files that are NOT in ANY way associated with piracy or any other infringing intellectual property are not allowed to be accessed when using the anonym.to linking method. As a test to prove the validity of this, open up Google Chrome and try to access the following web link using Chrome first, and then try it in Mozilla Firefox: http://anonym.to/?ht...913jgu3ivtd9mun It appears that Google Chrome has made a conscious effort to purposely filter out linking to Mediafire through the anonym.to redirecting method. Whether Mediafire took part in this filtration is currently unknown. Update: it's not Google Chrome responsible for this blocking, but Mediafire itself. Mediafire is not allowing visitors who try to download a file through an anonym.to link. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
