nvidia – VA-API in Chromium-based browser on Ubuntu 20.04

I am currently trying to run Stadia 4K gameplay in Ubuntu 20.04. Currently this demands VP9 hardware accelerated decoding. I found this tutorial for installing a VA-API patched PPA build enabling hardware acceleration in Ubuntu, which I followed. As comments confirm, this does not work in Ubuntu 20.04.

Running vdpauinfo returns the following:

display: :1   screen: 0
GPU at BusId 0x3 doesn't have a supported video decoder
Error creating VDPAU device: 1

I am therefore at a loss for how to make it work. Any ideas?

Automatic Browser Tab Refresher

How many of you use addons to your browsers, that allow you to refresh any page/tab, at any rate you want it to? I have one for Mozilla Firefox, and Google Chrome. I generally use it to keep tabs of certain forums, while I am not looking directly at it. For example, I may use it to refresh FP every few minutes or so, or leave it running on a 30 second refresh of the whose online page.

sql server 2016 – Can’t load reportserver in browser

The issue is most likely that you haven’t configured your Service Principal Names for the Report Server, so it is encountering an error trying to utilise Kerberos Authentication.

Firstly, you need to confirm your SPNs are configured correctly for the Report Server. You can use Kerberos Configuration Manager for SQL Server to identify any issues with your SPNs and fix those issues.

Once your SPNs are corrected, add the address (http://servername/) to your trusted sites to enable your Windows identity to be passed through automatically and facilitate SSO.

Not sending all headers in standard browser get request

I’m typing the url into the top bar of chrome (happens no matter what browser I’m on and doesn’t happen for any other people’s computer on the same network) but www.website.com doesn’t send all the request headers needed to get to the site, doesn’t even seem to be getting to cloudflare and I have no idea why this is happening. The site works fine on website.com and dev.website.com which makes it even more confusing. This screenshot shows what headers are being sent so you can compare it with any other site you can access. Does anyone have any idea why this would be happening on only www version of the site and no others? enter image description here

web browser – What a malicious website can do in the worst scenario on a upgraded system

I use last Debian stable (buster as June 2020).

  • system upgraded everyday (and browser addons updated automatically)
  • Firefox 68.9.0esr (64 bits) (the one from apt package system)
  • decent hardware (less than 5 years old)
  • Debian security upgrade enabled

I’m aware of security concerns, I…

  • verify (before clicking a HTTP link) if the link looks like example.org, but are in fact example.org.random.tracker.io by example (I take care about phising and tracking)
  • take care of untrusted X509 certificates for https websites
  • avoid using non trusted Firefox addons
  • never open suspicious files in web or mails
  • don’t use weak passwords (and I don’t use the same on 2 websites)
  • never run Firefox as root (who do this ?)
  • use httpsEverywhere, uBlock-Origin, Ghostery, Decentraleyes Firefox addons

So my question:

  • what is the risk of opening a malicious website (if not in google safe browsing DB) ? What it can do, the worst way, apart phishing website ? (I guess crypto-mining at least, exploit of Firefox vulnerability…)

Cross Browser Test Platform that supports pay-as-you-go Model?


Currently I am using BrowserStack to perform cross browser test for my website. However, every month, I will only test my website for less than 10 times, so it is not afforable to pay in a monthly plan while actually I use the service rarely. Therefore, I want to know if there are other similar services that provides a pay-as-you-go model so that I can purchase some credits(or some minutes) and then use the credits/minutes when I need, instead of subscirbing a montly plan?

☑️NEW – Brave Browser Reviews: SCAM or LEGIT? | Proxies123.com

Brave is a free and open-source web browser developed by Brave Software, Inc. based on the Chromium Browser.

So, what’s the difference of BRAVE from other browsers like Chrome?

The browser blocks ads and website trackers so you won’t need any AdBlocker to install and it is also fast and convenient to use unlike Chrome taking up most of RAM. And the best part is, BRAVE pays you with Basic Attention Token (BAT) by using the browser!

BAT is listed on Coinmarketcap — CHECK HERE for price and data

Brave Rewards – Enable brave rewards and you will be viewed ads that earn you BAT. For US, France, UK, Canada, Germany users only!
Brave Referral – Refer others to earn $1 to $7.5 worth of BAT. See changes below!
Brave Tip Program – Get tipped from other users as long as you are a Brave Publisher

  1. Download BRAVE BROWSER
  2. Start the browser and enable “BRAVE REWARDS” —> Hint: Just enter “brave://rewards/ ” on Brave Browser
  3. Click on the BAT icon on Brave browser —-> Hint: Triangle icon next to Brave icon and the URL bar. You can see a notification if a BAT token is ready to be claimed.
  4. Go to “brave://rewards/ ” and click the CLAIM button to claim BAT. Supplies are limited, if you don’t see any claim button, this would mean that all tokens are already claimed for this period – just check later again.
  5. Go to brave://rewards/” again and view ads to earn free BAT tokens (Currently only available in US, France, UK, Canada, Germany)

malware – Suspicious behaviour of Android Tor Browser

I’m using the Android Tor Browser 68.5.0 on my Samsung A40 running Android 9.0 (no root) and I’ve been observing some extremely strange behaviour:

  • My data plan only allows 2 GB per month. Since I installed Tor Browser, the data usage appears to have spiked unreasonably and by the end of a month, the usage displayed by the phone reaches 3-4 GB and more, which is impossible, since the provider throttles the bandwidth. Can Tor Browser manipulate the displayed data usage? Is this even possible without root?
  • Tor Browser is either blocking or controlling the internet connection of other apps. Example: Messengers such as WhatsApp or Telegram often do not get status updates (e.g. new message alerts) – until Tor Browser starts to connect! Only then suddenly all messengers get alerts at the exact same time. It almost appears as if other apps are not allowed internet access, unless Tor Browser has it first.
  • Tor Browser seems to be extremely “busy” in the background: It frequenctly seems to occupy 100% CPU or RAM (not sure) and things start to lag. Sometimes, when I try to forcibly disconnect by activating airplane mode, it takes a minute or so. Other times, when multiple tabs are opened, one particular tab seems to “cling” to the foreground, i.e. when changing to another tab, the content of the “clingy” tab gets displayed instead of the contents of the new tab – again, until airplane mode is activated.
  • When opening a web page, Tor Browser “pretends” to load them extremely slowly (blank screen with a creeping loading status bar), although most of the page has already been loaded. If I then cut the connection/activate airplane mode, the web page suddenly gets displayed, although it’s mostly text. This happens with both Javascript enabled and disabled and is especially noticable, when my data connection is already throttled.
  • Tor Browser often behaves like being “under siege”: When surfing, CPU load spikes and everything gets slow, scrolling pages is laggy etc. – until I cut the connection/activate airplane mode, then suddenly everything returns to normal (sometimes after a few seconds).

To summarize this behaviour by an analogy, Tor Browser is behaving like a little tyrant: It consumes huge amounts of resources, blocks or controls internet access of other apps, and appears to fake the displayed data usage of the phone. I verified the last point by cross-checking the providers measurements, there is often around 1 GB discrepancy between actual data consumption and displayed data consumption. Finally, all this behaviour is directly influenced by internet connectivity – cutting the connection changes Tor Browser’s behaviour.

What is causing this? Is this normal?
