    I tried visiting a plugin page and google chrome blocked it for malware. Don't do this on the whole site, but i figured i would post this anyway just incase.

    Here is the image:

    Mrchasez I just checked, and it is blocking the page for me as well. Must be something wrong with this so-called "imageflock.com" which has been hacked.
     
  3. Mrchasez click go back then go back to the page again
    It shouldn't appear anymore, don't worry about it, it happened to me a couple of times
    edit: I use firefox, it's kind of better, never got a fake malware response

    Google chrome is better. I wasn't worried about it, was just reporting it.

    Mrchasez Let the web browser wars begin...
    Firefox is superior.

    There is enough of that on youtube. By that i mean stuff proving google chrome is overall better =P

    No. Was reporting it to bukkit.

    Im done posting here now.
     
  8. lols, they can't do anything on my best guess, it's a glitch with google, it happens to other sites too
    What ever floats your boat though

    Neither browser is better, they are both good.

  10. Eh, Google chrome was good for me then I went and used firefox, google chrome caused my ping to go up by like 50 for some reason, and it was becoming pretty slow for me, I switched to firefox and it's pretty fast, I don't know about the google chrome it may be with my internet but I don't know p;

    It's probably an ad on the forums that's giving that error. Is it still giving you that message, or has it already been resolved?

    Probably simply an image gotten from that website, I had a warning like this on DBO too. Turned out to be the 'donate' image, so I just replaced that. All good now! (Not sure if it's all good on the forums, but I can't edit anything on here anyway).

    I personally use chrome, I find no actual internet speed improvements in it, I just find that firefox freezes up quite a bit on a mac.

    I just use Chrome because I find it nice to not have a big bar above my webpage, like FF and IE have.
    Plus, I don't want to IE in the first place, because the plugins you can use are quite handy.

    Just to contribute to the great debate:

    Mozilla is the only company that I trust to preserve my freedom, and to keep fighting for an open, accessible web.
    I only use chrome because it syncs my bookmarks, history and plugins across all my devices.

    Chromium is open source, which is what Chrome basically is.

    Open source is different from Open-Source spirit. Mozilla has a history of standing up for openness, but Google is responsible for some of the biggest privacy violations around the world!

    Biggest privacy violations? Like what? Using your information to index your searches better?

    Totally a violation of privacy when
    1. It's automated
    2. It's private to your account.
    3. It's god damn useful.
    Something tells me you also think Microsoft is the best company ever.

    Maybe just a mishap? Well, even if you like google tracking you in all sorts of ways on a confusing 'opt-out' basis for the purpose of their advertisements, I certainly think that this is unacceptable:

    As for Microsoft, I hate them with a passion. I think that if they never came into existence, all software would be open, much like the early days at the homebrew club.

    There's a lot of articles around the internet about how Google was caught red-handed doing something wrong. But let's not start a flame-war here and move ahead; what Google did in the past stays in the past.

    Anyways, for OP,
    If the problem persists, you can always get something like AdBlock or find a plugin/extension that allows you to only allow resources from the website you visited.

    You can always use telnet to browse the web it you're worried about privacy. :p
    Code:
    GET / HTTP/1.1
    Host: bukkit.org
    User-agent: Timatooth Explorer (Mozilla Compatible); DOS 6.1 x86_64
    //make sure you opt into do not track :)
    DNT: 1
    Cookie: bukkit_username=Timatooth
