Positive:

Xombrero doesn’t allow cookies or javascript unless explicitly allowed.

Negative:

Xombrero has not been updated for the past few years.

For me that last thing is a no go for any browser...  :wink:

Yeah, like Opera 12.16 that's still in the Software Manager. I hope that's where this wasn't found. 

 

That was one of the last versions that would install on Windows 2000 Pro, if that says anything. Opera has long gave up on it's 32 bit browser for Linux & probably Windows also. Everytime I try to find a 32 bit version, still the same old one shows, seems they've (rightfully) given up on 32 bit a long time ago. Maybe it was an example for others to follow long ago.

......and old as my VCR packed away. :P

 

Good try, but articles can be deceiving,

Performing full disc images weekly and keeping important data off of the 'C' drive as generated can be the best defence against Malware/Ransomware attacks, as well as a wide range of other issues.
