Goodbye after 22 years of use.

Posted

Goodbye after 22 years of use starting with Netscape Navigator.

Your “nannyware” mindset, (“This Connection is Untrusted” and you cant change that) along with the internal data harvesting features, have cost me to much time and annex than I am willing to expend in the future.

Looks like Chromium is my new home.

P.S. You "educated guesses about your current browser and operating system" are very wrong.

  • Firefox applies similar criteria to secure connections as other browsers. What issue are you running into? More detail is always helpful.
  • I don't know why your browser reported to the site that it is Firefox 36 on Windows 8.1 if you are running Linux. It could be in preferences* or you might be using an extension that sends random user agent strings to websites.
