This Modification blocks all visitors using Google's CHROME-browser from your vBulletin.

Those users get a message in their Google-Browser that they should use any other browser and come back :)

Just curious, why would one block Google Chrome?

Boosted Panda 04 Sep 2008 19:53

I was just thinking this as well? Maybe because its a Beta and is buggy?

MrZeropage 04 Sep 2008 19:54

Because this "browser" is collecting more than alot data about what users do, visit, surf to and even alot about the visited content - and some might not want all this on their site with their content...

interesting mod IMO

It's an open source browser. Anybody can modify or look in to their code.
It's really laughable that people fear from it/spreading fud... :rolleyes:

This browser not collecting "more than alot" data whatever that means...

My thoughts too.....

The EULA fix was underway long before Hasann even made his post too.

The thing is its almost like google has crossed the line, now can now collect huge amounts of data about users.

They are not offering a browser because there nice but because they want to follow users off search engines more.

That's like closing the barn door after all the animals have been slaughtered by wolves. Retaining copyright of content you didn't want searched, or scraped, or abused in the first place is no protection at all.

Besides, monitoring the habits of people gives me shivers regarding privacy loss.
