    While researching browsers that work on XP Pro I stumbled across this:

    http://safertech-secure-browser.rusc.ru/

    It looks promising, but not been able to find out much about it, good or bad, so has anyone here tried it? Comments?

    @RockLobster, I know we have to leave some parts unbolded for effect, but in this case what is there NOT to bold o_O
    ...especially that last sentence. I mean, talk about speaking with a forked tongue.

    This type of agreement seems to be par for the course these days.

    I've found that with names for legislation too - the amount of authoritarian control is inversely related to it's freedom-loving title - think Patriot Act, FISA (manifestly allows interception of citizen's data), Regulation of Investigatory Powers (anything goes), Investigatory Powers Act (everything you've been doing illegally for over a decade is now OK, honest - except this is going to be found illegal too). So it goes.

    It is at every level. Lies and deceit are their business model and their foundation for governmental policy. When they lie they speak their native language...

    I just tried the link I provided above, using Chromodo and IceDragon (my two most finicky browsers) and link worked both times, so no idea why its not viable for you...but sorry its not working.

    You're my Hero For The Day! Thanks for the heads up RockLobster. That agreement sounds like something a TLA (or Google) would of written.

    Unfortunately a pretty name like Trusted Computing, SOPA, etc., is all that is needed to fool the masses these days. Seems like it takes less and less propaganda, disinformation, misinformation, and spin-doctoring to get the job done. Anyway, I am thankful I avoided this trainwreck.
