    1. Google claims this new API addresses FLoC’s serious privacy issues. Unfortunately, it does anything but. The Topics API only touches the smallest, most minor privacy issues in FLoC, while leaving its core intact. At issue is Google’s insistence on sharing information about people’s interests and behaviors with advertisers, trackers, and others on the Web that are hostile to privacy.
    1. If a site you visit queries the Topics API, it may learn of this interest from Chrome and decide to serve you an advert about bonds or retirement funds. It also means websites can fetch your online interests straight from your browser.

      The Topics API is worst than 3rd-parties cookies, anyone can query a user ad profile:

      ```js // document.browsingTopics() returns an array of BrowsingTopic objects. const topics = await document.browsingTopics();

      // Get data for an ad creative. const response = await fetch('https://ads.example/get-creative', { method: 'POST', headers: { 'Content-Type': 'application/json', }, body: JSON.stringify(topics) });

      // Get the JSON from the response. const creative = await response.json();

      // Display the ad. (or not) ```

    1. On-device ad auctions to serve remarketing and custom audiences, without cross-site third-party tracking.

      Naming a thing with a meaning opposite to what the named thing is...

      Google is insatiable when it regards to accessing users private data. Let's block that bullshit.

    1. Due to there being no good way to solve these issues, we know that many developers download Chromium (not Chrome) binaries instead, although this approach has some flaws. First, these Chromium binaries are not reliably available across all platforms. Second, they are built and published separately from the Chrome release process, making it impossible to map their versions back to real user-facing Chrome releases. Third, Chromium is different from Chrome.

    1. Adds "previousslide" and "nextslide" actions to the existing Media Session API.

      This will enable developers of video conferencing websites to handle these actions from browser UI. For example, if the user puts their slides presentation into a picture-in-picture window, the browser could display buttons for navigating through slides. When the user clicks those, the website handles them through the Media Session API.

    1. On any Web page run the following code

      js await startLocalServer(); let abortable = new AbortController; let {signal} = abortable; (await fetch('https://localhost:8443', { method: 'post', body: 'cat local_server_export.js', // Code executed in server, piped to browser duplex: 'half', headers: { 'Access-Control-Request-Private-Network': true }, signal })).body.pipeThrough(new TextDecoderStream()).pipeTo(new WritableStream({ write(v) { console.log(v); }, close() { console.log('close'); }, abort(reason) { console.log(reason); } })).catch(console.warn); await resetLocalServer();

Puesbien, la situación cambió cuando descubrí los libros africanos.No había muchos disponibles, y no eran tan fáciles de encontrar como los extranjeros.Pero gracias a escritores como Chinua Achebe y Camara Laye, mi percepción de laliteratura cambió.

    1. Testing if Google Chrome can make annotations on this Auto Hotkey documentation page.

      It (and Brave) can't make highlights or annotations for some reason. The prompt doesn't appear when text is highlighted, why is this? Is there a way to force the prompt to appear?

    1. PWAs as URL Handlers was part of the capabilities project and support for the experimental url_handlers manifest member, documented below, is being phased out. The url_handlers manifest member is being replaced by the new handle_links manifest member, which is currently being standardized and implemented.
    1. For creating SXGs for testing purposes, you can create a self-signed certificate and enable chrome://flags/#allow-sxg-certs-without-extension to have your Chrome process the SXGs created with the certificate without the special extension.

    1. How do I move my mobile bookmarks to Chrome? Open the Chrome Bookmarks manager (Ctrl+Shift+O) and you will see a new folder called ‘Mobile bookmarks’. All your bookmarks from your Android phone and/or iPhone will be sorted inside this folder.

    1. It's possible, but you have to be careful. Trying to require() a package means that node will try to locate its files in your file system. A chrome extension only has access to the files you declare in the manifest, not your filesystem. To get around this, use a module bundler like Webpack, which will generate a single javascript file containing all code for all packages included through require(). You will have to generate a separate module for each component of your chrome extension (e.g. one for the background page, one for content scripts, one for the popup) and declare each generated module in your manifest. To avoid trying to setup your build system to make using require() possible, I suggest starting with a boilerplate project. You can check out my extension to see how I do it.

    1. If you open console you'll see XMLHttpRequest cannot load file:///.../nav.html. Cross origin requests are only supported for protocol schemes: http, data, chrome, chrome-extension, https. It's about browser politics. It works in Firefox, but not in Chrome. If you want it to work you may run a web server on your local machine to serve the files. More information: XMLHttpRequest cannot load file. Cross origin requests are only supported for HTTP "Cross origin requests are only supported for HTTP." error when loading a local file

    1. First of all, Chromium bookmark adding menu was a bit shit and still is. You get to choose among the five most recently used folders only; if you want anything specific, you have to mouse click all the way through (using Tab on keyboard with my 100+ folders was just not doable). You can’t search when you add bookmark either. Yes, I know, it’s not meant for geeks, it’s for normal people who love mouseclicks. I’m still puzzled by how people who develop that stuff use their own product though.


      • si se crea una tree-structure, luego es "incomodo" moverse, o no se "recuerda" donde estaba;
      • o se mete todo en una "bolsa de basura", XOR no se utilizan los bookmarks!

    1. Could someone guide me how to set up chromedriver with selenium using chromium flatpak properly? I can't seem to find any tutorial doing it like this... I never had issues with chromedriver using the "old" sudo apt way and I also got it working using snapd. But since I am using Pop!_OS I'd like to just use flatpaks if there is no sudo apt repo.
    1. The answer is No. You have to have the chrome application inside your computer. However, you do not need t install it. It will work with any portable Chrome versions as well. You simply have to point to the chrome executable location during tests.
    1. You’ll see something like this: PDF fcfbb33577a82236301d15889a77df36 [1.3 Mac OS X 10.12.3 Quartz PDFContext / Adobe InDesign CS2 (4.0.5)] (PDF.js: 1.1.215)

    2. Select More Tools -> Developer Tools -> Console

      (Spanish) Pulsar F12 En "Console" no aparece En "Elements" <body>: name="" internalid=""

    3. Load the PDF into Chrome (e.g. by dragging it from your computer’s file viewer into Chrome)

    1. We will also show you how to de-link your Chrome profile from your Google account(s) by stopping Chrome from syncing with Google in the first place. This will help keep your Chrome profile separate from your Google account and enhance your online privacy.
    2. To do that, Chrome automatically links your Chrome profile to a Google account when you sign in to any Google service on the web. That helps Google deliver a ‘seamless experience’ across all devices by letting you sync your history, bookmarks, passwords, etc., across multiple devices. Meanwhile, privacy-conscious users see this as a major threat to their online privacy and advise users to remove their Google account from Chrome.
    3. As mentioned already, Chrome automatically signs you in to your Google account every time you sign into a Google service, like Gmail, YouTube, Google Photos, etc. It also links your current Chrome profile to that account. While Google says that it does so to offer a ‘seamless experience’, it is a privacy nightmare for many users.
    1. Some Chrome users may like the new functionality as it makes it easier for them to sign in or out of Chrome and Google on the Web. Others may dislike it for privacy and user-choice reasons. Think about it, if you sign in to Chrome you are automatically recognized by any Google property on the web as that Google user.

    1. Then I noticed in the extension details that the "Source" was listed as the location of the "bypass-paywalls-chrome-master" file. I reasoned that the extension would load from there, and I think it does at every browser start-up. So before I re-installed it, I moved the source folder to a permanent location and then dragged it over the extensions page to install it. It has never disappeared since. You need to leave the source folder in place after installation.

      Solution to "Chrome automatically deleting unwanted extensions" :)
