Recently we found our Chrome web browser looks like slower than usual when we tried to open a web page, it was stuck in the first 20 or 30 seconds, or even few minutes when visiting websites but after that the speed could be back to normal. We see there is a message “Downloading proxy script…” (sometimes the message is “Resolving proxy…”) in the bottom left corner of the web browser.
Here the cookie file is the ‘cookie’ which is generated by web browsers. When we visit websites, we use web browser, no matter your pc web browser, or your mobile phone browser, all browsers normally need a cookie file to store some information on your local pc, but, the web browser need your permit to generate cookie file.
One day I found the flash video did not work on my web browser, the Chrome. My Chrome is newest version since I always follow the updating from Google.
In the newer Chrome version (after Aug, 2015), Google stopped all plugins based on NPAPI (Netscape Plugin API), which compared with PPAPI (Pepper Plugin API); they said “To make browsing with Chrome safer, faster, and more stable”. NPAPI plugins including Silverlight, Java, and Unity etc. I am sure Chrome still supports Flash, and also still use Flash plugin, so Adobe Flash plugin must be a kind of PPAPI plugin;
Normally, you do not need to manually install or update the Flash plugin, because when you update your Chrome browser, the flash plugin will be updated together. What I guess is that Pepper project was created by Google itself, so the Flash plugin based on PPAPI should be actually a Google project, which could say Chrome Flash plugin is a part of Chrome;
So why the Flash plugin seems not work ?
1: I simply clean the Chrome cache first, but still not work;
One day our Google Chrome Browser got a problem, we could not access internet. but on the same computer, we also have IE browser, IE browser could access internet.
The following is the error page which Chrome browser displayed:
Unable to access the network
Google Chrome is having trouble accessing the network.
This may be because your firewall or antivirus software wrongly thinks Google Chrome is an intruder on your computer and is blocking it from connecting to the Internet.
Here are some suggestions:
Add Google Chrome as a permitted program in your firewall’s or antivirus software’s settings. If it is already a permitted program, try deleting it from the list of permitted programs and adding it again.
Error 138 (net::ERR_NETWORK_ACCESS_DENIED): Unable to access the network.
We searched lots of help information using our IE browser through internet, most of cases are about virus changed internet connection option such as Proxy configuration. We can check Google’s forum here if your case is really caused by Proxy.
However, we double checked our Chrome’s settings, our internet settings such as LAN, Proxy all looked OK:
Then we went back to check the Chrome error message, it indicated that might some firewall program in our computer blocked Chrome browser. then we checked our Windows 7 firewall settings first, we did not find Windows 7 firewall blocked Chrome settings:
So what the reason is exactly ?
Finally, we recognized we installed another virus program: McAfee Security program.
So we opened McAfee Security Center, and access to its firewall settings, finally we found the real reason: It was because McAfee blocked our Chrome Browser:
We edit Chorme’s permission and then Chrome browser could access internet.
By default Chrome browser saves your visit history, when you open a new tab page in Chrome browser, you will see the screen includes some icons of websites which you most visited. In some cases, this is not good, for example, you are using a public computer, or you do not want to other people to know your visiting history.
You should delete them from Chrome browser’s new tab page. Here we provides two method which you can delete them.
Clear them is very simple, but you have different ways:
1: Clear history:
Go to wrench icon on the browser top right toolbar. Select Options, Click “Clear browsing data…” under “Under the Hood” menu item:
You can delete the history by choose different options;
2: A more convenient way:
Just use your mouse hand hover over a website icon which you want to delete, and click the x that appears in the top right corner of the frame.
However, this way only delete one visit site history data each time.
Google will release their “laptop”, Actually we want to call it netbook – Chromebook. Because it bring us the impression is a netbook, but we think it might be some special than normal netbook. Google call it a laptop without any other local software but just Chrome OS installed, and without local hard driver needed. Everything the user will use just is a web browser, and connect to web, and everything the user needed includes application software, and user’s data, will be on the web – Cloud Service.
“These are not typical notebooks. With a Chromebook you won’t wait minutes for your computer to boot and browser to start. You’ll be reading your email in seconds. Thanks to automatic updates the software on your Chromebook will get faster over time. Your apps, games, photos, music, movies and documents will be accessible wherever you are and you won’t need to worry about losing your computer or forgetting to back up files. Chromebooks will last a day of use on a single charge, so you don’t need to carry a power cord everywhere. And with optional 3G, just like your phone, you’ll have the web when you need it. Chromebooks have many layers of security built in so there is no anti-virus software to buy and maintain. Even more importantly, you won’t spend hours fighting your computer to set it up and keep it up to date.” – From official google blog.
Due to Google’s video, we can see how it’s boot speed fast:
More information please take a look Google’s Chromebook webpage.
Due to Google Official blog report, Samsung and Acer have already started to product Chromebooks:

But, you might have to know, since most of thing or even you can say all of stuff of yours will not save on your local Chromebook including your own data, the data will be stored on internet – the Cloud. you have to pay the monthly fee for the data storage – “Your apps, documents, and settings are stored safely in the cloud.” Due to Google’s information, the cost monthly fee might be around $28.
