Mm. Well, even Chrome itself is just another Chromium-based browser.....but Big Brother must have suppressed those in the released Chrome code, 'cos there's absolutely no sign of 'em for me.

I wonder if it could be the choice of theme being used. I've Morpheon Dark installed (one of the best dark themes around IMO, handles shading of active/inactive tabs very well).

OT: Wishing you mother well Mike. Mine's a couple of years older and been through similar lately.

Thanks, ruffers. Much appreciated.

As the old saw goes, you only get one Mum.....so it's in our own best interests to look after 'em!

She's not out of the woods yet, though I believe she's over the worst of it. Everything takes longer to clear up, the older you get.....a fact I'm steadily discovering for myself.....!

She's had her own routine for getting over illnesses, etc, for decades; she retreats to her 'nest', keeps herself warm (and well-hydrated).....and usually, Mother Nature takes care of the rest.

I just wish more folks would take that attitude. It's really not very clever, struggling on (especially when you're infectious), and infecting everyone you encounter, left, right & centre. I wish somebody had told the bloody woman who gave it to her at the opticians a fortnight ago; she was hacking, coughing, spluttering, and just literally sneezing all over everybody else in the waiting-room. Not even the decency to cover her mouth with a hanky.....or even her hand!

I'm waiting (with bated breath) to see whether I come down with it myself.....

Sounds like you need to be more assertive Mike. But respect that's not in your nature. Personally I'd have had my mum out of there like a shot letting everyone know the reason why in the process. Post mid 80's you do have to fight ever harder as more often otherwise others just wont care. Xmas eve 2 years ago we had to ambulance mum/nan into hospital and a few days later due to antibiotic overload (medics trying to find the right one) she ended up with C-Diff and had to be isolated for around 3 weeks. Pretty much daily battles with staff (in particular consultants) and without those battles she'd have been dead and buried shortly after. As is, despite greater frailty, we still have the blessing of her presence (and continual criticisms Smile primarily directed at her only child/son - just take it on the chin and consider that her frustrations have to be vented somewhere otherwise that in itself can cause medical issues. Fortunately we don't live together, around 200m apart but dine etc. together, and she leads a reasonably independent lifestyle where she feels comfortable and in control - that also helps maintain my own sanity).

Evening, kiddiwinks.

The current stable version of Chrome - Google_Chrome-71.0.3578.80-amd64 - is now available for download, from the location referenced in post #1.

------------------------------------------------

Nothing especially new to report; with this release, Google have finally completed the whole 'https is normal/http isn't' thing (at long last). Now, https sites have no prefix to the address at all; http sites have 'Not secure' tacked in front, with the legend in red lettering on any page where you might give out potentially sensitive information.....like this very one I'm composing my post on.

--------------------------------------------------

Changes and updates in this release are as explained here, on the regular Chrome blog page. (I'm a week late with this one, but real life gets in the way.)

43 security issues have been addressed since the previous release.

Once again, the new GUI is very much noticeable. Google have been tweaking things in the background for the better part of the last year, and the iconic sloped tabs have finally bitten the dust. In come larger tabs very reminiscent of the older 'Australis' Firefox interface; more space between your extensions, your bookmarks; a softer, 'rounder' look to the omnibox.

This is now the default appearance. If you want to change back to the older 'look', you can reverse my instructions from an earlier post.

--------------------------------------------------

One other issue of note, and one which will be of interest to the security/privacy-conscious amongst you.....and that is the business of Chrome automatically signing you in, and 'syncing', the moment you sign in to any Google apps; the Drive, Google Docs, etc, etc. This was introduced in the Chrome 69 release, and immediately created uproar.

Google have apparently backed down from this move following all the hoo-ha they inadvertently caused with it. There is now an 'option', buried away in the 'Settings' page, to control this. Go into the 'Advanced section', and, fairly near the top, you'll find a slider switch to 'Allow Chrome sign-in'. You'll need to de-activate this; Google are still hoping you won't find it, and it's opt-out, rather than opt-in.....
----------------------------------------------------

There is no need to manually run the

Code:
glib-compile-schemas /usr/share/glib-2.0/schemas


..command any longer. A small script, which has been placed in /usr/sbin & sym-linked into /root/Startup, now automatically runs the compile command at boot time.

The 'Spot2Root' file permissions changer has also been updated. It now works with uploads as well as downloads.....as explained in an earlier post. Following an exchange of ideas & points raised via PM with mikeslr, I've added an extra line to the 'spot-to-root' module of the Permissions Changer which sits in the task-bar; when you select 'Spot-to-Root (for downloads)' in the GUI, ROX (or whatever your default file-manager happens to be) will now open on your 'Downloads' directory, ready to retrieve the newly-downloaded item.

Just cuts down on the need for a few additional clicks, since most of us usually want to access downloaded items straight away...

------------------------------------------------------------------

Credits:-

Battleshooter - for help with the self-contained NSS libs'n'stuff several releases back.
belham2 - for cobbling together the 'launch' script that is now employed.
And further back, 01Micko (the 'head honcho'), and iguleder - both of whom have indirectly helped keep this thread going for as long as it has, with references & links.

Thanks must also go to OscarTalks and peebee, for suggestions and assistance over the last couple of years.

---------------------------------

Any problems, ya know where to find me.

Enjoy!


Mike. Wink
