First "Google."  Nothing much.  Then this.

When I follow a link to the details on a vulnerability I get this:

Helps if you read the article:
As is standard practice in these circumstances, Google is currently restricting information about the vulnerabilities "until a majority of users are updated with a fix"

This article is alarmist garbage. Google put out a bugfix list for Chrome, no different than any other piece of software, and not really article or Fark worthy. Keep your software updated.

Then why post links to all of these if you're not allowed to see anything? I often forget that reporters are among the stupidest people on the planet.

Some people will have access is my guess, and also for later posterity when they open them back up for public dissemination.

I find it ironic that this is el Weeners, and not a post made 3 days later, claiming to be FP

LOL - apparently messed up pseudo Spanish doesn't fare any better against the censor file. Learn something new everyday.

Oh, my irony. I only to random pages from iPad Safari, seeing as my laptop is only usable for about two hours a week that I actually need a computer for. Spreadsheet and data entry, all the damned thing is good for.

Do you always ask questions that you know the answer to? That must be exhausting

Id rather type Presearch.org into Presearch.org.

Blockchain powered

Marketwise

How does a search engine improve via use of a Blockchain? Does decentralizing search terms, results, having, etc improve somehow? It's there an algorithm used here that improves results over Google, Bing, it even basic meta data crawling?

And what about using Blockchain do you think is marketwise? Maybe a better way for me to ask that... What do you think marketwise means?

Hard, hard, hard, pass.

Presearch is an open, decentralized search engine that rewards community members with Presearch Tokens for their usage, contribution to, and promotion of the platform.This makes a lot of sense why Linux_Yes spams so many threads with this, suddenly. Presearch openly admits that it uses, and encourages paid actors.

It's a cryptocurrency. That's par for the course.

So does searching the Internet mine/mint you coins?

I don't really understand how a search engine can "be" a currency. But maybe I'm just not marketing enough to understand.

Look don't think too much about it. Do you like money? If you like money giving me money I mean investing in my cryptocurrency will guarantee ten thousand percent returns. Leave the questions to the losers who aren't going to make it.
