Is RealPlayer More "Secure"
than Google Chrome Browser?
The "browser wars" began in the 1990s.
They led to assured claims of a better design and "enhanced user experience."
But just how true is all the hard-sell publicity?
how the browser blocks content in iframes.
In this example, both pages were part of the same "domain/sub domain" host (Associated Press):
When an iframe becomes disabled by the Chrome
browser, nothing else can be loaded into that frame.
AutoSurfing is frozen. The browser session has "crashed" and must be closed and reloaded to continue.
This is not an "enhanced user experience"
yet occurs often in WebKit based browsers (Chrome, Safari).
AutoSurfing does not freeze in Standard browsers (Explorer, RealPlayer, Opera, Firefox with extensions).
When WebKit based browsers (Chrome, Safari)
encounter unreliable code, they might block the full page and display a
But they block the user from potential critical content that may not be related to the malware (from a third party ad) that attacked it.
This is certainly not an "enhanced user experience" but may be a symptom of "ebook burning" or rampant Internet censorship.
The Mozilla Firefox browser will display full page content but block only the frames containing malware:
Trident based browsers (Internet Explorer,
RealPlayer, etc.) in Vertical Browser HiSafe Mode will display the full page
but not allow scripts or malicious code to be executed. Malware ads can be deleted in Vertical Browser HiSafe Mode.
In 2013 Edward Snowden, a computer specialist and a former CIA and NSA employee, disclosed
the colossal scale of government eavesdropping. He also raised the real concern of "ebook burning"
or rampant Internet censorship through the use of malware inserted in third party advertising frames.
The Internet "giants" have sternly warned webmasters and web page designers to avoid the use of frames.
Yet these are the very same giant companies that made tremendous fortunes through the use of frames.
Google and YouTube serve millions of iframes every day! A double standard for similar situations?
Perhaps it is not merely an eavesdropping conspiracy
but a marketing plan for an "advertising cabal"
to completely corner the Internet. No kidding...
Maybe advertisers hacked enough code from the
WebKit layout engine to be able to take control of it and
"steal cookies." Or perhaps WebKit freezes up as a safety precaution when it encounters unknown script.
Either way, the user is denied access to desired content when frames are broken by third-party links.
When making a new
AutoSurf Play List, it is recommended that you test with Chrome browser
If you will be viewing unreliable web pages or ones experiencing technical difficulties,
(Explorer, RealPlayer, etc.) lets you browse with strict security restrictions without changing your
system settings. It doesn't execute runtime script, but only views the document's design surface.
The AutoSurfing Player lets
you monitor up to 36 (or 576) URL links with no typing or clicking.
It's like watching a slideshow...
