Chrome feature causes enormous load on DNS servers

The Chromium browser—open source, upstream parent to both Google Chrome and the new Microsoft Edge—is getting some seriously enormous load for a well-intentioned feature that checks to see if a user’s ISP is “hijacking” non-existent domain results. The Intranet Redirect Detector, which makes spurious queries for random “domains” statistically unlikely to exist, is responsible for roughly half of the total traffic the world’s root...

For the past few days, video editors have been panicking as a data corruption issue struck their Macs (typically 2013 Mac Pros), preventing them from rebooting their systems properly. But what was the cause? Their Avid Media Composer editing suite? MacOS itself? No — it turns out their browser was likely to blame. Google...

Chromium Edge is enterprise ready

At this week’s Microsoft Inspire conference in Las Vegas, the company announced some impressive improvements to my new favorite browser, Chromium Edge. I’ve become a huge fan of the new Chromium version of the Microsoft Edge browser, which is still in beta test. The reason is that I really missed the one browser-does-it-all aspect of old Internet Explorer; before this new browser, I was...

Chrome behaves like surveillance software, switch to Firefox

Your web browser should never act as surveillance software. Unfortunately Google Chrome’s surveillance methods make it highly insecure by allowing trackers to follow you around the web. Over a recent week of Web surfing, I peered under the hood of Google Chrome and found it brought along a few thousand friends. Shopping, news and even government sites quietly tagged my browser to let ad...
