    Actually, rather than remove the jisu file altogether, copy and paste somewhere for safe keeping, then right click on the jisu file and edit with notepad and delete and create empty (fake jisu) file to please the application. If you are using 360 without a loader, you'll need to go through the registry and remove a lot and Humming Own taught me to lock down the reg files.

    Still hoping there will be some updates for us, but, sadly, I doubt it and V13.5 appears to be our last hope for this. :(

    Just rename it! Its still where it belongs. Move it & you will not at some point run across it & wonder "what is this for?" Also, you can quickly create a new doc explaining what & why, , , I do this a lot.

    Any future update scheduled for this? I can't install Chrome extensions on it anymore.

    I just installed the latest version of NoScript without issue.

    What extension are you trying to install? Maybe it's buggy or even malware. Google Chrome Strore is plagued constantly with malicious extenstions that steal passwords etc. which is why you should only install well-known extensiions from long-time authors, not from someone who just made their first extension.

    Sad to say, I don't think we'll see updates to these browsers ... which is a pity, but enjoy while they work. FTR ... I still use 360V11 most of the time as V13 is rough with little in the way of resources.

    There are sites I can't even login anymore because it won't load the captcha, and whenever I try to install an extension the download button says "not compatible" and I can't click on it for download.

    Is there a place where I can download the latest Arctic Fox compiled for Windows XP? It's the only browser I can think of to try.

    Hi,
    I'd like to know if there is a setting in 360 Chrome v13 that will avoid this
    annoyance:

    Whenever I go to bitchute.com I get this:
    upload_2022-10-13_15-37-43.jpeg

    I have to refresh 2-3x and then the page will load but note the red markings in
    the url bar.
    upload_2022-10-13_15-38-0.jpeg
    What am I missing to avoid this?

    Thanks.

    BTW I'm using Humming Owl. The Artic Foxie version won't allow bitchute at all.

    Seems to work fine in ArcticFoxie's 360 Chrome 13.5 (you can tell the difference because AF's version is XP-themed).

    [​IMG]

    The red markings are an indication that the site is loading HTTP, not HTTPS (note the crossed out HTTPS in red). This is because all Chrome browsers rely on Windows system certificates which in XP's case are expired. (Mozilla based browsers use internal certificates). I'm not sure how to update XP's TLS certificates, maybe someone else can shed some light.

    After some searching there is a setting in chrome that will allow TLS 1.3 to work properly in HummingOwl's 360 Extreme Explorer 11 (this setting is unavailable in ArcticFoxie's 360 Extreme Explorer 13.5).

    In the URL bar type in chrome://flags (similar to mozilla's about:config):

    In the search field type in tls and then scroll through the results until you see "Sets the TLS 1.3 variant used" - click on the "default" button and select "Enabled (Final)". You will have to restart 360Chrome.

    After you restart you should be able to connect to most HTTPS sites (including BitChute):

    The connection errors you are experiencing could be glitches with HummingOwl's 360 EE V13 - I had issues with that version (slow loading etc.s) when I started this thread which is why I used V11. ArcticFoxie's v13.5 seems to work fine other than the HTTPS issue with some sites. I keep both on my XP system. They can be run simultaneously without conflict (I have Bitchute video playing in HO's 360Chrome 11 and Youtube video playing in AF 360Chrome 13.5).

    I accidentally changed 360 Extreme Explorer to Dark theme. Does anyone know how to change it back lol ? I don't know how this happened. I have the slight impression that I pressed some key(shortcut?) right after I executed the browser, but there's no shortcut for such a thing shown in the Options.

    Disappointing but not surprising as websites evolve. There are still other alternatives - DC Browser, 360Chrome 13 and Serpent 55. MyPal 29 froze when trying to play video and MyPal 68 won't even load Youtube.

    There is no one browser to rule them all in XP - you will have to keep several alternatives because there will always be some websites that work in one but won't work in another.

    Yeah ... I was hoping for V11 for a lot longer, but now I've switched to AF V13.0.2170.0 and have had no issues other than the fact that its heavier than V11 was.

    Yeah, My Pal 29 freezes but unfreezes after 15 seconds and Mypal 68 is working for me on YT right now.
