I would like to suggest that Chrome be included with SpywareBlaster along with Firefox and IE.
What's up with this? I do second this request...
What sort of protection? Cookies? Blocking access to malicious domains? For what I know, Chrome does not allow to block access to domains, from within its interface, does it? Chromium doesn't.
Now, what could be done, and how it would be done, would be a task for the developers, is to block access to malicious domains by doing the following:
Chromium allows to block access to domains, but not through the user interface. It's done through a command line switch --host-rules="MAP domain 127.0.0.1", "MAP domain2 127.0.0.1", etc
Unlike a HOSTS file, it allows to do something like --host-rules="MAP *.wilderssecurity.com 127.0.0.1". So, it allows wildcards.
But, Chromium/Chrome would need to be startet with command line. But, there's also a limitation in the ammount of characters each line can have.
So, something would need to be figured out how to solve this limitation, which I do not recall the limitation number.
Chrome for Windows does allow a cookie exceptions list, so this could be easily implemented into Spywareblaster.
In fact, all the content settings in Chrome have exceptions lists, including:
Location (allowing websites to track your physical location)
Notifications (desktop notifications - not completely sure what this is)
I am not sure if it allows entire site blocking though.
Chrome Developers Page - Google
I'd also like to see Spywareblaster integrated w/ Opera, but I'm sure that has been requested a million times already.
It's possible to block like [*.]youtube.com, so anything with .youtube.com on it would be blocked.
I really hope that SpywareBlaster includes Chromium and based browsers as part of the protection it offers. I sure know it would be of great value to family members who can't handle the hassle of blocking cookies, etc all the way and then only selectively allow for this or that website.
I wonder what's Javacool Software thoughts about it
