    The main problem with google is that they think that they have been nominated with the badge of internet serif. They step beyond serving its users up to controlling the content they access on the internet. It is about time to ditch anything that google produces or relates to. It gets worse every single day.

    Why does any company rebrand? It's an attempt to stay fresh and relevant, sometimes to say something different about themselves as a company. Is it a waste of money? I don't know, ask Pepsi, ask Coke, ask any huge company that did it. If it improves brand recognition, it isn't nessasarliy a waste, but you can only tell in retropsect if it was sucessful or not. I think this is an improvement of the old, which is especially important in an industry where design trends are constantly changing. The brand and product isn't tied together as much as they'd like us to think though, do I like using the browser? Not so much, it needs a lot of improvement still.

    Good for them. No one should depend on Google without a backup of some kind. Ask past Windows Phone users about Youtube.

    Hopefully NZ does the right thing and does not allow this abhorrent and gross abuse of power to take place. F the RIAA/MPAA for treating this man like a Mafia kingpin. Ridiculous. Norm_MacDonald_Prison_Ridiculous.gif

    Yeah. No. Russia made a 5G deal with Huawei earlier in the week. US can pound sand.

    I don't care if another browser is slightly less responsive than Chrome, if my adblock extension of choice doesn't operate in a way that does the job, I would have no choice to move to an alternative.

    I will never trust any service that depends on Google... they release a product and two years later is dead. The only reason they have not kill gmail is because it have probably billions of accounts on it and they get a lot of money from advertisers. Look what happened to google voice.

    They may be slow compared to NVMe, but they're perfectly adequate for the vast majority of Dell's customers. Not everyone needs the absolute best IO performance. Neowin's web servers run on spinning disks, and IO is not a bottle neck. The same can probably be said for the majority of web servers. Our database servers run on standard SSDs, and not NVMe drives, again, IO is not an issue. Not everyone in the world is a huge enterprise needing to squeeze every last drop of performance out of their hardware

    This'll be a rough test of faith for the devout contrarians who magically started loving Huawei as soon as the west started having a problem with them.

    As apposed to lots of shilling on behalf of a company that invades users privacy in order to fill it's coffers. Please. Lets not kid ourselves that Google is anyones friend here. Anyone who claims it's "fear-mongering" because they dare stand up and demand privacy from a multinational deserves nothing but scorn and contempt.

    Just reacting to the last part of your post but security through obscurity is a really bad idea. Exactly because other specs are open source, the code can be improved upon and verified by thousands of individuals or companies.

    I think you all are being too harsh. It's a nice browser with a dark theme that has customization colors, and has gaming and tech news instead of finance/international/politics. It's not trying to fool or con anyone.

    Must be very thrilling to be a Google user. You never know if a feature you're using will get canceled tomorrow or replaced by another feature that gets canceled a week later. One thing seems certain - whatever it is - it will get canceled

    now they are inserting ads... later they will be inserting malware. Everyone who loves Huawei because they are in hot soup should willing install their malware or better yet give them all their passwords

    All governments do that, it's nothing new, just that China is more up front about it whereas western governments and companies are more sneaky about it. Beside, didn't the US do the same to Europe to gain a edge along time ago? At the end of the day, China have the right to make up whatever laws it once in China, one of those laws is any company that wants to do business in China have to share tech with Chinese companies, it's not really up to us to agree or disagree with that, it's the law and then it's up to companies to decide if it's worth investing in China which most will say yes because of the massive market. Also, even if they ware stealing ip's, is that such a bad thing? think about it, if that means a lot more rivals on the world stage, it's us consumers that would benefit the most from that.

    How to get adoption... step 1, get a name that screams "CHINESE OS"

    Great idea. Let's can a proven stack, replace it with 4 open source vendors, each operating independently, who will break the stack with updates, cause slower implementation time, and cost more in employee salaries to maintain. Sounds like a good way to waste more money.

    Just delete the whole thing in it's enterity. Not only will you free yourself from the mundane garbage where people fake how good their lives are, the trite "memes", and the all the other dross that's the "timeline", but you'll also discover a well of self confidence that resides inside each of us when we stop seeking external validation for our every activity. That alone is reason enough, that you're no longer giving up your privacy to the weirdo that runs Facebook is just the cherry on the cake.

    IDK, the shop has 5 whole people and does embroidery. If he's not already thinking quantum architecture he might as well be painting with feces on a cave wall waiting for the dinosaurs to go to sleep so he can go out foraging. You guys are talking about Hypervisors, but you should be thinking Ludicrousvisors which are much faster depending on the size of your helmet. Seriously, this thread got out of control halfway through the first page. Peen measuring more than helpful information.

    And unlike Microsoft's failed attempts to get devs to create mobile apps, Huawei has an impressive user base. Developers can leverage most of their current work and publish to the new store. I guess the sticking point will be API compatibility with devs using the Google SDKs. Microsoft's failed attempts? I think you either weren't paying attention, or there is a significant amount of history you missed. With the simplicity of App on iOS and Android at the time, porting to WP7 was really simple, and there were tools that made the process nearly seamless. It wasn't like Microsoft was demanding developers to adopt something radically foreign. Also, Microsoft was pushing a technology called Web Apps - sound familiar? This was to use the WP7's platform of interacting directly with Web Sites as Apps so that existing content could be repackaged as a native App with a simple wrapper. To demonstrate the technology, Microsoft helped websites publish App versions of their sites. Apple and Google reacted by first disabling the ability for their browser to access or use a website that had 'Web App' features. Next, they threatened the Sites/Companies that they were going to remove their existing Apps from the Apple/Google stores if they didn't have the WP Store 'Web App' pulled. With WP, Google and Apple knew it was a major threat, so much so that Apple made a U-Turn at the last minute to bring the iPhone to Verizon with WP targeted specific agreements forcing Verizon to drop WP7 devices for the holiday release. WP wasn't a failure with developers, it was a failure with the companies making popular Apps at the time, and Apple specifically having control over their current products. Apple urged, paid, and even forced and threatened App developers to not create a WP version. There were also Apple 'Fan' developers, like Snapchat, which had no intention of creating anything for Windows. You can find stories on the companies that got money from App for development with the condition that they would not produce a WP version specifically, as many of these paid agreements allowed the developers to pursue Android versions. This wasn't a failure of the frameworks, platform, or technologies. Especially the 'technologies', as the WP framework was more advanced than the Android or iOS frameworks, had things like full bi-directional inheritance and an inherent fully GPU accelerated framework UI from the beginning. The 'platform' technologies in WP7 also had fully dynamic input model support, with touch, keyboard, mouse built into the UI framework. (Something Apple is still trying to accomplish with iOS) WP also was faster and offered more 3D functionality, with the base performance, as admitted by Qualcomm, was 1.5-2x faster than their core Linux and core Android OSes running on the same SoC - especially graphically with DirectX being able to hit 4 to 5 times the performance of OpenGL ES. (See Qualcomm) So in a way, Microsoft 'failed', by not being ruthless/evil. The product/platform and their openness to developers was not the problem. (Remember, Microsoft is a PLATFORM company, not a hardware company, and not a software company.) PS And if my ramblings about WP7 isn't enough information or a place to find the information I reference, just go back and read what Steve Wozniak said about WP7 - he kind of 'understands' technology in ways most of us only dream.

    They were supposed to support a dead platform? It was dying from the start. I really wanted to like it but the app support just wasn't there for me. It's not like you couldn't use it in browser. To be clear, I said ASK Windows Phone USERS? You obviously were not. When google did this, it was NOT a dead platform.

    I forgot all about this guy. There are dozens of file hosting websites running to this day though so I don't know why they're going after him specifically, other than the RIAA/MPAA wanting to make an example of him.
