Internet Browser Updates

  • 1 143

    Updated May 18 2019 New Versions.

    Added new browsers Brave and MS Edge Chromium Canary.

    Chromium 64 bit is now the FASTEST browser in Windows.

    Please remember all the downloads get updated the day they come out on http://beast-usa.com "Top Menu - Downloads"
    Then I add them here as soon as I have a couple free minutes. 

    Test System
    Case - Thermaltake Core V71
    Cooling - Water cooled, Raystorm Waterblock, 270 GPH Pond Pump, 5 Gallon Reservoir.
    Motherboard - Asus Rampage v Extreme (Bios 3101)
    CPU - Intel i7-6950X Extreme Edition @4000MHZ 32X125
    Memory - 64 gigs Crucial Ballistix Tactical DDR4-3000 17-18-18-33 CR2
    Video Card - EVGA RTX 2080 TI XC Ultra Stock Clock & Cooling. (Windows Nvidia 425.31 game. Linux 415's open source drivers)
    Hard Drives - Windows 10 Crucial SSD M550's Raid-0, Xubuntu Crucial SSD 1TB.
    Storage Drives - 2 Western Digital 5TB 128meg cache, 2 Seagate 4TB 256meg cache.
    Power Supply - Corsair 1050 watt SINGLE RAIL
    Screens - 3 Sceptre 40" 1920X1080
    OS's Xubuntu 16.0.4.6 x64, Windows 10 Pro x64 1809

    Chromium (NOT GOOGLE CHROME) 64bit for Linux is the fastest browser! And of course Linux is always the fastest OS.:)
    "Morpheon Dark" browser theme


    PLEASE REMEMBER BENCHMARK SCORES WILL VERY PER SYSTEM SPEC'S
    THESE WERE RUN ON MY TEST SYSTEM.
    I run all the benchmarks 3 times each clearing the cache before each run. I run all the browsers, then clear everything and run all the browsers again. If you just run the same test three times in a row you will end up with crazy high numbers!

    Higher numbers are better! Chromium in Linux wiping the floor with the rest of them!

    I'm changing the layout and the way I list the browsers to alphabetic.
    Then which operating system they work on of course the best OS first LINUX. 

    Brave
    It seems to be a good browser. Same old Chromium settings back and fourth, back and fourth so annoying. For the 99.999% of the people on the internet NOT USING A STUPID PHONE! Doesn't anyone check server stats?
    Pros:
    1. It's very fast in the top three fastest browsers. (Linux Version)
    2. All the Chrome Store addons work. FVD Speed Dial (blocked by Opera), Read Aloud (not in FireFox, Opera) , Lastpass.
    3. It's a new browser to try. :)
    Con's:
    1. The default download on their site is a ONLINE INSTALLER.
    2. You can get full OFFLINE installers. But the offline installers will install into your user\AppData\Local\BraveSoftware folders on Windows. ONLINE installer which no one wants! Will install in C:\Program Files\, C:\Program Files (x86)\. So if you have more then one person using the computer and don't want a online installer? I would use the crappy ONLINE installer first. Then download the 32 or 64 bit OFFLINE installer and install it. Then it will install for all users and all future updates will update for all users.

    UPDATE:
    It looks like it's hit and miss on where Brave installs, the ONLINE & OFFLINE installers will install in user\AppData\Local\BraveSoftware.
    I've installed it on a few systems a couple went to C:\Program Files (x86)\BraveSoftware the rest all went to AppData. Without an
    option on where to install it (All users or just one at a time) it may get blocked by some windows security settings and a few different Anti-Virus programs.

    For LINUX
    They have two different options, download which I will offer here and terminal install.
    Terminal install https://brave-browser.readthedocs.io/en/latest/installing-brave.html#linux

    Chromium PURE
    NOT
    Google Chrome (it doesn't have all the junk in the trunk google adds)
    IF YOU ARE USING AVG/Avast (same company)AVG IS STILL GIVING A FALSE FALSE POSITIVE ON THE CHROMIUM INSTALLER!I HAVE TURNED IT INTO AVG TO BE WHITE LISTED BUT AVG IS JUST NOT THAT GOOD ANYMORE. I HAVE
    NO PROBLEMS WITH Scanning it or installing Chromium with Kaspersky PRO! I'M HOPING AVAST WILL
    MAKE AVG A REAL ANTI-VIRUS COMPANY AGAIN. AVG HAS NO PROBLEM TRYING TO INSTALL THE
    MALWARE VERSION OF CHROMIUM "GOOGLE CHROME"

    NETFLIX is working from version 63.0.3239.84 and up of Chromium.
    LOL I guess googles plan to get everyone to use google-spyware-malware-chrome didn't work!

    FOR LINUX
    Install Chromium in Linux Ubuntu
    To install the stable Chromium version:
    use the Ubuntu Software Center and the Update Manager.
    Or open terminal type these commands:
    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:canonical-chromium-builds/stage
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install chromium-browser

    Debian (works in ubuntu)
    To install and auto-update Chromium, open terminal and use these commands:
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install chromium

    For Windows 
    Chromium has randomly stopped working on some Windows systems, Windows 10, 8 & 7.
    Once it has a blank screen it will never work again. I'm looking into it I believe it's being blocked by Windows bad security.
    So before you update go to "C:\users\AppData\Local\Chromium" you will need to change your folder/file settings to view "HIDDEN".
    Copy the whole Chromium folder if you run into a problem just delete the Chromium folder and paste the back-up copy you made
    back into C:\users\AppData\Local\.

    Chromium 64bit version74.0.3729.157 For Windows 64 bit ONLY.
    I would use this one if you have a 64 bit OS. You will have less problems with AVG & Avast Anti-Virus.
    It takes them so long to add an exception and realize this IS NOT A VIRUS - GOOGLE CHROME is the VIRUS!

    Chromium 32bit version74.0.3729.157 For Windows 32 or 64 bit. 
    AVG & Avast (same company) will detect the installer as a virus.
    IT IS NOT A VIRUS Scanned with Kaspersky Total Security.
    The only browser they think is OK is the WORST SPYWARE browser made Google-SPYWARE-DATAMING-Chrome!

    For Mac OSX
    (REMEMBER TO CHANGE YOUR SECURITY SETTINGS APPLE ONLY LETS YOU INSTALL FROM THE APPLE STORE)
    How to install on Mac:
    1. Download the DMG file
    2. Close Chromium browser if opened
    3. Execute this DMG file
    4. Drag its icon on Applications folder
    5. You may then "Eject" and throw away this disk image
    To remove it definitively: drag the app from the Applications folder to the Trash.

    New Edge Chromium based "Canary" (Microsoft) NOW THE FASTEST WINDOWS BROWSER MADE!
    You can add any extension you normally use in any Chromium based browser.
    To add chrome extensions go just to the chrome store and search.
    https://chrome.google.com/webstore/category/extensions
    Then just click "Add to Chrome". I tried about 30 of them all of them worked so far.
    Even extensions BLOCKED by Opera are working in the new Edge Chromium - "Canary".
    It's in 10th place as far as speed but it's no longer at the bottom with google chrome & safari!
    And it first release scored 756 and second released scores 1384.38 that's almost double in one version! Unless Microsoft does what it
    did with Winblows 10 this browser could end up being the fastest one out there! But if they go down the Win 10 road every version gets
    worse it will end up back at the bottom.

    To install webstore apps you will need to change this setting.
    First open your menu - under the standard ANNOYING mobile menu.
    Then Left Click "Extensions"

    Then move the slider to the RIGHT.
    Now you should be able to add any extensions you like.

    Microsoft Edge Chromium - Canary version 76.0.162.0 For Windows 7, 8, 8.1 and 10 FULL OFFLINE INSTALLER.
    In Windows 7 you will get a "Using as Administrator" warning you can just close it I didn't see any performance
    drop as it says you will get running as Admin. But don't be STUPID stay off of bad sites (facecrap, google,
    insta-hack...), don't download VIRUSES! lol

    Opera For Linux 
    A warning if you do a clean install or reinstall Opera and you are using FVD Speed Dial it's no longer in
    their addons/extensions. Opera has blocked it to force you into using their ad-ware default speed. Why? Because
    FVD Speed Dial is the only speed dial that can replace Opera's "New Tab Default ADWARE speed dial".
    Not all is lost there is away to get it back and keep using it. I will put those instructions up and a default FVD
    Speed you can download and use. If they block that just dump the browser and use a better one. For Linux
    it's way too much hassle to get it back for the average user just switch to FireFox or Chromium
