Is there any advantages using SRware Iron over Chrome if any. Thanks

http://www.srware.ne...9c272408797008d

Not really. Iron is a browser that claims to have superior privacy over Chrome but all it really does is remove features they claim to be privacy issues when you can just disable them in options anyway. If anything, the entire

project is a bit of a sham. It plays on peoples paranoia of Google and doesn't do anything special, and if anything, they're purposely misleading on how Iron differs from Chrome which is practically nothing.

Yes - they keep disappearing and re-appearing at random. Rather annoying.

Glad it's not just me and actually an issue on Chrome's side. It's indeed rather annoying.

The favicon issue seems to be fixed in the latest Chromium builds so I would expect it to be the same in the dev builds soon.

Hm, I'm not experiencing any bugs with favicons anymore on my end. There's no extension that could be causing the issue?

I'm not experiencing anymore either, although I did have to exit Chrome a couple of times and re-launch it for ti to update the favicon on the bookmark bar.

Disables the zoom icon/bubble

Glad they got rid of the bubble, at least for now. I use mouse gestures to zoom and the popup would be an annoyance between zoom actions. The zoom icon that appeared in the location bar I didn't mind though.

      Google is testing the addition of shopping advertisement cards on Chrome's new tab page [Update]
      by Abhay Venkatesh

      Google is testing a way for the new tab page on Chrome to display shopping advertisement cards based on users’ search history and preference. The feature is currently hidden under a flag called ‘NTP Shopping Tasks Module’ (spotted by Techdows) in Chrome Canary which can be enabled from chrome://flags. The flag provides users the ability to even enable recommendations based on fake data for representational purposes.

      The shopping card lets Google serve tailored suggestions right in the new tab page, making it easy for users to either pick up on recent product searches or related items. The firm also allows users to access their activity and tweak recent data stored in the ‘My Activity’ page by clicking on the “i” icon in the card. While the feature is still in development, it will not be surprising if the firm makes it an opt-in experience.

      Clicking on any of the products in the card redirects users to a search results page for that product with retailer and pricing options, just like on Google Search. The experience for users that prefer new tab page personalization through third-party extensions might vary. The firm is also working to add recipe cards and content from Kaleidoscope, flags for which are also present in the experimental features section in Chrome Canary.

      The integration of shopping features into the new tab page of one of the most popular web browsers could help Google further expand its Search and marketplace offerings into its services, making them easily accessible and prominent. The feature might also be aimed at rivaling the recent Facebook Shop and Instagram Shop offerings being introduced by the social networking giant.

      Update: A Google spokesperson reached out to clarify that the experiment displays "free product listings" only and does not include any paid ads. Here is the complete statement:

      Google Chrome 86.0.4240.111 (offline installer)
      by Razvan Serea



      The web browser is arguably the most important piece of software on your computer. You spend much of your time online inside a browser: when you search, chat, email, shop, bank, read the news, and watch videos online, you often do all this using a browser.

      Google Chrome is a browser that combines a minimal design with sophisticated technology to make the web faster, safer, and easier. Use one box for everything--type in the address bar and get suggestions for both search and Web pages. Thumbnails of your top sites let you access your favorite pages instantly with lightning speed from any new tab. Desktop shortcuts allow you to launch your favorite Web apps straight from your desktop. Chrome has many useful features built in, including automatic full-page translation and access to thousands of apps, extensions, and themes from the Chrome Web Store.

      Google Chrome is one of the best solutions for Internet browsing giving you high level of security, speed and great features.

      Important to know! The offline installer links do not include the automatic update feature.

      Microsoft releases Flight Simulator patch version 1.9.5.0 with a bunch of fixes
      by Abhay Venkatesh



      As promised last week, Microsoft has released a new patch for Flight Simulator, bringing version 1.9.5.0 to all users. Today’s update contains a bunch of fixes and improvements to various areas such as the UI, airports, planes, and more. The changelog also notes that multiplayer has been deactivated in the Japan discovery flight.

      While the patch notes are short – in comparison to earlier patches –, the download from the Store is a 569MB package, with the in-game content download size reaching 2.4GB. The company is quick to add that these notes do not include “every single item that was updated”. Regardless, fixes for the VFR screen causing game crashes and issues in the Avionics screens will be welcome additions for those who have been experiencing them. There are other fixes for auto-generated scenery.

      Here is the complete list of fixes in patch version 1.9.5.0:

      Interestingly, the company has not listed if the ‘Press any key to start’ prompt has been removed from the game. The firm listed this ‘Top wishes’ item as fixed and slated for release in the fourth update, which is what today’s patch is. Another item in the latest Feedback Snapshot denoted as fixed in ‘Update 4’ is the issue with the left engine failing to start on the A320, which also isn’t present in the release notes.

      In addition to the patch notes, the company has also updated the list of known issues and the possible workarounds. These include issues with various aircraft, airports, weather, and more. Users can head here to read through all the known issues and workarounds.

      Apple releases watchOS 7.0.2 with fixes for battery drain issue and ECG app availability
      by Abhay Venkatesh



      Apple released iOS 14, iPadOS 14, watchOS 7, and tvOS 14 to supported devices in September, earlier than it usually would have, due to the pandemic and delays in announcing the iPhone line-up for this year. The updates brought significant changes for Apple’s offerings, including a design overhaul to the home screen in iOS that introduced an App Library for all apps, new widgets and much more. watchOS 7 was also a major release, finally bringing sleep tracking, support for third party watch faces, and more.

      Just a week after the release, the first bug-fixing update for the OSes came on September 24 and brought fixes to the default apps issue on iOS and iPadOS. Today, Apple is releasing the second bug-fixing update for the Apple Watch OS, bumping up the software to watchOS 7.0.2. The release brings improvements to battery usage and a fix for the ECG app not showing up.

      Here’s the complete changelog:

      While the update itself is fairly minor, the improvements to battery drain and the ability to enable the ECG app for users in regions where the feature is supported will be a welcome addition. However, more fixes and features are on their way in watchOS 7.1, which is currently in beta.

      Latest Galaxy Note20 Ultra firmware update brings camera and battery life improvements
      by Abhay Venkatesh

      Samsung is beginning to roll out an update for the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra, which comes just a few days after the Note20 series received the October security patch. While the earlier update only brought to the devices the October security patch and nothing in the way of features, today’s update that is starting to roll out to users in Germany seems to be specific to the Note20 Ultra.

      According to the folks over at SamMobile, the update brings improvements to battery life and the camera. Specifically, the camera is receiving fixes to improve stability and night mode performance. It is not clear as to whether there were any issues reported about the reliability of the camera, but this update should fix any such issues that were present. Battery life improvements are also welcome additions for users of the device. Additionally, not much else is supposedly being added with this update.

      While the Galaxy S20 Ultra suffered from camera performance issues at launch that required to be fixed by software updates, the Note20 Ultra gained positive reviews and was not plagued with the autofocus issues found on the S20 Ultra, likely due to the addition of the laser autofocus module. However, the South Korean generally serves updates to further improve camera and device performance post-launch, which is what today’s update seems to be.

      Galaxy Note20 Ultra users can head to Settings > Software update > Download and install to check for updates and pull the firmware. Considering that the firmware update is just beginning to roll out, it could be a while till it makes it to all regions.
